Makes manual knife sharpening faster, easier and more precise than ever!
Work Sharp has developed a bench top sharpening and honing system capable of handling all your knives. Whether your blades are straight, curved or serrated, with the WSGSS you can get them sharp and keep them that way. Diamond Sharpening Plates combined with the Pivot Response System will sharpen straight and convex blades with ease. The Ceramic Hone allows for the sharpening of concave or recurved knives, and two sizes of Ceramic Rods will take care of serrated blades.
Pivot Response System
The unique Pivot Response System allows the Diamond Sharpening Plates to move as the blade is passed over them, ensuring a constant sharpening angle for convex curved and straight blades alike. No need to change your motion, just hold the knife perpendicular to the stone and slide the bevel along its entire length. The stone will pivot to match the curvature of the blade. The Pivot Response can also be locked out to create a rigid sharpening stone for straight blades.
Finding the right angle to hold the blade at is straight forward with the WSGSS as well. There are removable reference guides to use with the Diamond Sharpening Plates for 17° or 20°. The Ceramic Hone has a built in 25° guide. Simply place the knife against the guide at either end of the platform before each stroke.
The Guided Sharpening System features:
- Coarse 320 grit Diamond Plate
- Fine 600 grit Diamond Plate
- Ceramic Hone with coarse and fine positions as well as fish hook grooves
- 3 sizes of Ceramic Rod for sharpening serrations
- 17° and 20° Angle Guides
- Sharpening Platform with Pivot Response
- Slide Lock for creating a rigid sharpening surface
