Being avid hunters and outdoorsmen, they found knife sharpening to be quite time consuming and required some level of skill. Frustrated with every other sharpener on the market, they decided to create something that would be easy for them to re-sharpen their knives while on a hunt or camping.
Equal Pressure + Constant Angle = Perfect Edge
After welding together several scrap pieces of metal rods to make the frame, they added sliding metal rods and attached them to springs in order to maintain both angle and pressure. It looked like an awkward metal mess, but it worked. They combined the two most important dynamics in sharpening – Angle & Pressure, and put them into one compact sharpener. It was at this point they discovered the elusive dynamic to sharpening. The most important dynamic they discovered was PRESSURE.
Equal pressure, combined with constant angle will get any edge sharp, provided you keep the blade straight. Which is what makes the V-Sharp so incredibly unique – its Blade Guide. The Blade Guide keeps your blade straight as you pull down and the springs apply the same pressure while pulling through the rods.
