SP204MF: Spyderco Triangle Sharpmaker with Instructional Book and DVD

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.

Spyderco ceramic sharpening system
I've owned this system for years and have never been disappointed in the results from it. It takes only a couple minutes and when I'm done, my knives are razor sharp. Easy to use, no messy oil, sure fire angle provided. Well worth the cost.

Not impressed
I expected more from this sharpener. One stone was shorter than the other three. When I put stones in the standard slots one of them is quite loose and droops down at least a few degrees more than the other one. I thought the base was supposed to hold them at the proper angle but it doesn't. I brought it to spyderco to exchange it but they insisted that I leave it to be "repaired". I can't imagine what kind of repair can be done to the molded plastic base. this was two weeks ago and I have yet to hear from them. I'm kind of sorry I bought this. I expected a quality product and quality service but got neither.

Sharpmaker is the Best
I have and use the GATCO Angle Sharpener but I sharpen knives that can not be clamped using this system. Here's an example: Daggers and CS's double edged neck knives. The rod system has to be used on these blades. Over-all, the Sharpmaker is the best esp if what you want is just sharpening without reshaping or making a new angle. It comes with the medium and fine rods and they work perfectly if the blade angle is already established. I buy high quality steel bladed knives and I usually reduce the angle for wicked sharpness. I just ordered the diamond coated rods so I could quickly create a new angle.For ease of sharpening, this Sharpmaker is the best.I even like its case--small and compact and well engineered. It can be easily placed in a backpack and won't cause a lot of weight gain. Every soldier should have one of these sharpeners.
