Spyderco Sharpmaker Triangle Sharpener
Item #: SPC204MF
I have always admired the triangular rods of Sal's Sharpmaker but did not like the wide angle he used. I see that he now incorporates the 30° angle that I like so well as his basic angle and still includes the 40° angle that is used for the edge on thicker blades or to add a micro-bevel to a properly sharpened edge.
The Spyderco Sharpmaker includes two sets of high alumina ceramic triangular stones; a pair of medium-grit brown stones for aggressive sharpening and a set of fine white stones for professional grade finishing. The stones are triangular so that plain edge blades can be sharpened on the flats and serrated edges can be sharpened on the corners of the rods. Two brass rods are provided to protect your hands. The plastic cover can be locked into the base to provide a more secure grip. This is an excellent sharpening device. Includes an instructional booklet and DVD.
Suggested retail price is $104.95.
In 1981, Spyderco ventured into the world of knife making by introducing their first folding knife, the C01 Worker. This knife was the first in the industry to feature a round hole in the blade design that allowed for fast, one-hand opening, now the company’s trademark, and the first to feature a pocket clip. The trademarked round hole is the most recognizable feature of a Spyderco knife and it facilitates the easy opening and closing of these knives with one hand while also offering convenient access and maximum control while opening as well as accommodating large, small or gloved hands.
Spyderco’s recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomically functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. Spyderco’s knives may look unusual, but they will never be called unusable or undependable. When you purchase a Spyderco knife, you are buying a high quality reliable cutting tool that was designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort.
