A Multi-Feature Approach to Sharpening

Check out this new guided field sharpener from Work Sharp!


The Guided Field Sharpener from Work Sharp takes a Swiss Army approach to sharpening, combining diamond hones, ceramic rods and even a leather strop in a single package.


The Work Sharp Guided Field Sharpener 2.2.1. is made by Darex LLC in Ashland, Oregon, the same people who produce the Drill Doctor brand of drill bit sharpeners.


“Our compact, five-stage, angle-guided field sharpener quickly and easily restores a sharp edge onto a blade with repeatable results,” says Darex president Hank O’Dougherty. “It provides diamond plates, ceramic rods and a leather strop so you can perform any knife sharpening, honing or stropping task with one, compact and easy to use sharpener.”



Legendary knifemaker Ken Onion said of the Guided Field Sharpener, “I am impressed with the clever details, like the magnetic plate holders, angle guides, round ceramics and strop, all in a small easy to carry package. It’s by far the best manual, portable sharpener I have ever used.”


“I especially like the versatility of it,” Onion continued. “I have used it on flat and re-curve blades as well as fishing hooks and leather punches and it performed well. Something for everyone in this little package.”



The Work Sharp Guided Field Sharpener ($34.95) comes with two diamond plates (coarse and fine), two ceramic rods (coarse, fine and fish hook groove) and even a leather strop. All Work Sharp products are designed, engineered and assembled in Ashland, Oregon.
