Work Sharp Knife & Tool Sharpener


Work Sharp, a Darex brand, teamed up with Ken Onion to design the most advanced at-home knife and tool sharpening system that anyone can use. For those not familiar with the name Ken Onion, he is a custom knife builder and the youngest inductee to the Blade Magazine Hall of Fame.

The Ken Onion Edition Knife & Tool Sharpener is designed to sharpen all knives including, pocket and hunting knives, serrated blades, kitchen knives, scissors and high-end steel tools. The sharpener uses adjustable sharpening guides, a variable speed motor and flexible abrasive belts to deliver professional, razor-sharp results at home. The sharpening guides are also adjustable from 15º to 30º to sharpen at any desired angle.

Initially, the Knife & Tool sharpener appears to be complex, but it is obviously made of high-quality materials. Addressing ease of use, Work Sharp provides an outstanding quick-start guide and operators guide with simple-to-follow directions and illustrations—click here to view. Click here to watch a complete demo video featuring Ken Onion as he explains the important features.

Living in South Florida provides us access to top outdoorsmen, where a sharp knife is not just nice to have, but a necessity. Fisherman, hunters or outdoor enthusiasts spend hundreds of dollars on high-quality blades and want to maintain their investment. All of the testers raved about the speed of sharpening, flexibility to sharpen numerous blade styles and ease of use. After a few uses, one of our testers decided to sharpen his wife’s prized professional chef knives. He joked that she was so impressed it has become part of his “honey-do” list. 

The Work Sharp Knife & Tool Sharpener is an outstanding addition to any sporting goods department. The packaging is outstanding and clearly describes the benefits, which makes merchandising a breeze.
