Buy 2 for $34.95 each (AG3750+2)
Based on the work of inventor Louis Graves, here is a compact sharpener that will do it all. Two diamond rods for establishing a new bevel and/or thinning a dull blade. Two ceramic rods of very high alumina content to put that razor sharp finished edge on the blade. The rods are held at 30 degrees compound, that means each rod is 15 degrees from the center of the V which is formed when the rods are inserted in the base and the base is placed on a level surface.
Note that with the cover open and the rods in place, the cover provides protection for the hand holding the unit steady as the knife is firmly stroked down the inside of the V, first one side and then the other.
This is so universally useful that you will want one in your desk drawer, one for your hunting gear and of course one in the tool drawer in your kitchen. Rods measure 4", case 5-1/4" x 2-1/2". Assembled in the U.S.A.
A.G. Russell Knives
From the age of nine I made homemade knives until I was about twenty-four when I began to make handmade knives, crude but no longer made at home. A few years later, I had met and learned from makers like R.W. Loveless and R. L. Dozier. I made knives until the mid 1970s. I don’t make handmade knives anymore, as my hands aren’t what they used to be. However, I do have very talented makers in the United States and Japan who make knives that I am proud to put my name on. I design pocketknives, one hand knives, lockbacks, and fixed blade knives and have them made to our standards. ~A.G. Russell III
