Original Electric Knife and Tool SharpenerThe Work Sharp Original Knife and Tool Sharpener sharpens every knife you own using flexible abrasive belts and precision sharpening guides. Professional knife makers use flexible belts to put a razor sharp edge on their blades and now you can have the same technology at home in a hand held sharpener. You can quickly and easily make your blades sharper than ever. The Original Knife and Tool Sharpener comes with 6 belts: 2 coarse, 2 medium and 2 fine belts a full range of grits for all your sharpening tasks. The coarse belt is used to repair damaged blades and sharpen edge tools. The medium belt is best for general knife sharpening. The fine belt is used to hone knives, sharpen serrations and scissors and for quick touch-ups on blades that were recently sharpened. Precision sharpening guides ensure you get the proper edge angle every time. 2 guides are included: a 50 guide for work and outdoor knives (25 per bevel) and a 40 guide for thinner blades and kitchen knives (20 per bevel) plus a 65 guide for sharpening common household scissors and a guide for sharpening single-sided serrations. The sharpener can be used without the guides to sharpen yard and garden tools free hand including axes, hatchets, mower blades, garden shears, shovels and most any tool with a cutting edge. The versatility of the Original Knife and Tool Sharpener makes it an invaluable tool for keeping all your blades in razor sharp condition and ready for duty.
Hey youtube this video is going to be. About the work sharp knife and tool. Sharpener electric sharpener now this. Video is going to be for those people. Who don't like to read directions which is about I'd say about 93% of my viewers. Because my viewers are 93% males alright. So I'm just going to explain how to. Operate this lovely piece of machinery the price tag on this was $60 they as well. Have a deluxe model that's a hundred and. Thirty dollars alright this triangular part right here. Is what they call the cassette this is. The slide release for the cassette now. This is basically tilted back in storage. Mode you've released that right you can. Click it into now this is knife. Sharpening mode the knives going like. That and if you rotate it all the way. Forward this is actually grinding mode where you have something clamped there and you grind alright so yeah that's how. The slide release and the cassette work now let's talk about the power settings. There's only three settings the middle. Setting is off right and if you the top. Setting here is continuous. Grinding mode all right cover your ears. For a bit. See how that works and this is just. Momentary grinding mode you know if you. Push it down here it'll only grind as. Long as you continuously have pressure. On the switch like so now let's talk. Belts your work sharp will come with. Three different color belts all right. This is the green belt now this is four. Axes shovels basically large crude items. This is the most aggressive belt right. It's gritty its course it's like sandpaper the next most aggressive belt is this. Brown one here this is the one that they. Recommend for knives all right and one. Of my favorite alright this one's a little dirty because I've been using it. But originally it was kind of light purple color this is the polishing belt. It is smooth it doesn't really grind. Anything but it's great for removing burrs and polishing all right now as far. As power, you can just plug this into. Basically any standard outlet in the us. It does not require any special power. Supply now let's talk about how to change the belts and i have unplugged. This so don't give me any dumb comments about oh you're going to run your finger off no I'm not alright to change the belt all you do is push this thing down. And rotate it and it locks in place. Still, it slides up I'm going to put the. Polishing belt on so i can show that in. Use alright and you just put like that and then you twist that back it springs. Up now this knob right here is to adjust. The centering of the belt once you change belts you want to make. Sure that it's not going that it's not. Going to one side or the other alright so just go like that until you're sure that it's centered if it starts to veer. Off just turn this one way or the other and try it again. All right so that this thing will turn. This will turn it like that right so. That's how to center it okays let's talk about the blade guides all right now. These are at different angles and i think this one is for whatever kitchen. Knives it slides on like that. Right and right and the whole idea you. Now you're putting your knife through it like that and pulling it through at a. Certain angle this other one here. Alright now this has guides at. Different angles than that other one you can see here you know that's nice that's. For sharpening scissors serrated knives. Now I'm going to be honest with you i. Don't i don't really care for the blade. Guards i don't to me it's much better to. Use this in grinding mode all right. Which is going to be like so to use it. Freehand like this what you have to understand about this machine is that it. Will put a convex edge on a blade these. Belts are flexible in other words when. You put contact that that belt you see. How that belt is flexible so it's. Basically wrapping itself around that. Part of the knife in a curve so it's. Going to grind you know a curved or. Basically a convex edge onto your blade. Alright now for those who don't know what a convex edge is this se machete. Happened to come with a convex edge and. You know it's not perfectly flat alright. There's a curve to it so instead of like. A v like that a convex edge more of an. Arch it's a very strong geometry and can. Also get extremely sharp it is an example of what type of vegetal put-on it's going to look like that okay. Oh most go myself it's going to look like that all right you can see how you. Now it's puts a convex edge this was a. $2.00 copy of a mora had the crappiest. Edge in the world that's what it'll do. This is a whole two fours knife these. Usually come really sharp but there was something wrong with mine i think i got like a factory second because they had not put an edge on it all right so i put an edge on it use the work sharp and. That's that's what it'll do. I also d bird this mora 333 this is this. Particular mora is notorious for having huge amounts of burning when it arrives. And you know it's its its easy all. Right all you have to do. That's all you have to do and then to. Make sure you actually did it right just feel along the edge if you feel any burning or anything or if it's smooth and you see how polished that is. Because i use that the smooth belt. On it alright so deburring and polishing i mean for that alone the $60 item is. Worth it alright now let me demonstrate actual grinding I've changed it to the. Green belt which is the best for machetes and axes that i have here a. Really cheap machete let's just. Say that it has you know the crappiest. Edge ever all right you see that just. That tiny little grind right there that's the edge all right so this is going to be the before pick and I'm just. Going to sharpen that little part you know just to show you a before and after. Okay now obviously you would you know. You would do that for several minutes or however much longer but here is the you. Now the new portion of the edge which. Doesn't suck compared see this is how it. Came that's how it came and now look at. The part that's sharpened hold on focus. Alright let me try and do the whole edge and then I'll show you that compared to the other side. You. Okay this is the crappy side that has. Not been sharpened all right you see the crappy edge the crappy edge right there. This is the side that has been sharpened. All right you see that glistening convex. Edge there and of course you could spend. More time on it but yeah this is the. Work sharp edge and this is the just. Retarded edge all right so there you go. Final thoughts on this work sharp it's. You know it's $60 i think everyone needs. One like i said even just for the. Deburring and polishing it's already. Worth it because i get so many blades. That they're sharp they're just rough this will smooth them right out so even. Just for that it would already be worth it's very good for machete you. Can basically turn a $6 machete into. Something functional so it's very good. For machetes, it's very good for axes and. Hatchets and just you know large crude. Crude items i very good for turning any. Any cheap hatchet very sharp all right. So basically for cheap items machetes. Hatchets this thing is good you know you. Got to use common sense all right you're. Not going to take this to a Katina and start grinding away here expensive Katina you're not going to take this to a custom-made folding knife in there and. Grind away at it okay you got to use common sense but all in all for 60 bucks. It's already paid for itself all right. This has been we all juggle knives hope you enjoyed the video I'm out.
