Sharpening Basics

Sharpening knives and tools can be complex sometimes even if it is, theoretically, a simple process. The variety of stones and different systems alone are enough to confuse even the experienced sharpener, let alone the novice. Add to that the different tools and knives and the whole process seems too difficult to even start. Our goal at SharpeningSupplies.com is to cut through the confusion so you can purchase the right product and be able to use it to sharpen your knives and tools to a level of sharpness you have never experienced.

To help you understand the products and the processes of sharpening we have wrote several articles that will help you make an educated sharpening purchase. If you would rather contact us and have us recommend something for you please give us a call or drop us an email.

Received my Sharpening System today,(Norton IM83) and I've got to tell you that I am excited about using this product. I've been in the meat cutting business for 45 years, and as you can imagine, I've used allot of different types and styles of sharpening equipment. I have had 3 Norton Multi-Oil Stone units in my lifetime, and then I see this IM83 and I think that this is what I need to carry with me when and wherever I go. I just LOVE this little box full of expertise equipment to keep me sharp and at a razors edge. Thank you for the service, it was fast and easy, and I received it within 3 days of ordering. I know knives and how they work, and I can't wait to start putting that edge on my "other" knives I own.
