SP204MF: Spyderco Triangle Sharpmaker with Instructional Book and DVD

Spyderco

Chances are you've heard it said "a sharp knife is safer than a dull one". We believe this quote originated from first hand experience and find it to be true. The Sharpmaker was Spyderco's first product, which Spyderco made and sold before getting into the knife business. It's true -- First, Spyderco made things sharp, then they made sharp things.

The Tri-Angle Sharpmaker includes two sets of high alumina ceramic 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 for sharpening Plainedges on the flat sides and SpyderEdges (serrations) on the corners. A furrow running the length of each stone lets you sharpen pointed items like fishhooks, darts and awls. Included is a set of brass safety rods protecting the users hands while sharpening. All components snap into the self-contained ABS plastic base and lid -- ready to travel with you. Die-cut into the base are keyed slots and holes fitted for the stones. They accurately set the stone's sharpening angle at a 30° (15° each side) or 40° (20° each side) for knives and a 12.5° scissor setting. Turn the base over, a channel lets you lay two stones side-by-side (flat-side up) for use as a benchstone. The lid snaps halfway over the base creating a handhold for stability while you're sharpening. Included is a set of brass safety rods to protect the users hands while sharpening. Ceramic stones, like glass, will break if dropped -- handle carefully. Use them dry, without oil, water or lubricants. To clean: scrub stones with a plastic scouring pad and powered abrasive cleaner, let air-dry. Also autoclave safe. System comes with instruction book and DVD.

Very disappointing
I saw all the 5-star reviews but I don't see the value...It costs about 75 bucks to get a basic system decidedly lacking in features. The medium stones are far too fine to re-profile an edge--you grind away for days. Instead, you'll need the diamond stones, and they are another sixty dollars. And you will most probably NEED to re-profile--because the Sharpmaker's fixed settings of either 30 or 40 degrees will not match your existing edge bevel. Next, the fine grit rods do not create a very sharp edge, so you'll need the Ultra Fine rods for another 35 bucks. So your total investment is about $170.00. And even then, the rods wobble in their slots in the cheap plastic base, creating an uneven apex. The result is marginal edge compared to another far better-engineered METAL-based system (@$250.00) with fully-adjustable angles and all-diamond hones. The ONLY advantage I have found with the Sharpmaker is that it works for small blades and blades that are difficult to clamp in a honing vise (e.g., dagger blades with double-bevels).

Brilliant!
I'm a veterinarian and a cook and I obsess about anything with a cutting edge. The versatile Sharpmaker allows you to restore a good edge to almost any instrument/utensil/tool. Be sure to watch the DVD or online videos to get the most out of this set.
