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.

  • Rapidly sharpens all tactical knives

  1. Lay sharpener on a flat surface with tip of knife facing away. Place cutting edge of knife in carbide "V". Keep cutting edge perpendicular to table at all times.
  2. Draw knife completely through the carbides in one steady motion. Use light pressure.
  3. Check edge - repeat if necessary.

Pros: Durability, Ease of Use, Effectiveness, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Quick field sharpening
Not what you would use to make a blade razor sharp, but definitely convenient and quick to produce a serviceable edge in the field. Think basic utilitarian sharpness versus combat/weapon sharpness.

Pros: Overall Quality, Ease of Use, None
Cons: Effectiveness
Not very effective
I'm not sure about this product. It does sharpen somewhat but I believe the angle is set too low. May be handy for heavy use on the field but should not be used for serious sharpening.
