Description: The Tri-Angle Sharpmaker (204MF) is a great tool for sharpening a wide range of tools and knives including: Straight edges, serrated blades, hatchets, scissors, tin snips, thinning shears, pinking shears, straight razors, chisels, planes, wood gouges, router bits, dental tools, potato peelers, and more.
It 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 plain edges on the flat sides and serrations on the corners. A furrow running the length of each stone lets you sharpen pointed items like fishhooks, darts and awls.
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. We've found Idahone's Superaser to be helpful in keeping the ceramic rods clean. Also autoclave safe. System comes with instruction book and DVD.
