GA40006: Military Carbide Sharpener (M.C.S.)

GATCO Sharpeners

Sharpening knives with an M.C.S. Carbide Sharpener is as easy as 1-2-3.

Carbide is strong with a hard cutting surface. Its extreme hardness makes it a popular choice in the manufacture of cutting tools, abrasives and knives. Carbide cutting and sharpening tools can be less costly and more heat-resistant alternative to diamond. In the military, carbide is often used in armor-piercing ammunition! GATCO carbide sharpeners are versatile tools for all sizes of plain-edge kitchen, sport and utility cutlery.

Made in China.

Carbide Bits chipped up after 1st use. No Good
I have a 40-year-old military one. looks just like this one but no frills or colors, and the bits are permanently installed. I've ran scissors, machetes, and tons of chef knifes through that one and the bits never chipped or dulled, so i thought buying this one that looked the same would be the same. Not even close. Barely got the first run to sharpen one knife then it was dull. Turning the bits makes you able to sharpen 3 more sides but that's it. Don't buy this cheap carbon not carbide device.
