A handy system with two aluminum oxide hones and one ceramic hone, this set can be used to sharpen everything from penknives to butcher knives.
Clamp the knife blade in the frame, select the grit you want (120x, 600x or 1200x), and insert the attached rod in the slot for the desired bevel angle: 11°, 15°, 19°, 22°, 25° or 30°. Both bevels can be honed without unclamping the knife; you just use the equivalent slot on the opposite arm of the clamp.
The fitted plastic storage case has full instructions on the inside lid, and two empty slots for additional hones.
The set includes:
- three mounted hones and rods
- a clamp
- honing oil
- spare clamp screws
A triangular-shaped medium-grit hone for use on serrated knives is available separately. The 1200x ceramic hone (hone with light-blue handle) is available separately for sharpening sets purchased before September 2000.
