    Hey Guys,

    Let’s face it – sharpening knives isn’t easy. Using conventional means, it requires a great deal of skill and patience – both of which are in short supply in my case.

    Fortunately, Spyderco has a knife sharpening system which could have easily been called “Knife Sharpener for Dummies.” I did a video review of the product and explain what makes this system both simple and effective – check it out:

    Enjoy!

    Great video, well done. May I suggest you pick up a Speedy Sharp for re-profiling really dull blades. The carbide will strip away a lot of metal so use little force. Bring the blade down to sharp then use the Spyderco to bring the blade to razor.

    Thanks for the video John. Good review. I would like to get one of these some time soon. Currently, I have a DMT 8" D sharpener which i like very much, but again, would like to have the Sharpmaker.

    John,

    It's good to you here bro. Thanks for the video reviews. Lot's of blade addicts keep multiple sharpening systems....I use stropping leathers and silicon carbide paper for convex knives, stones for kitchen knives and the DMT Aligner Kit with Curve Stones for recurve blades. I like diamond as it doesnt wear as much as other stones. You might want to try adding some Diamond Triangles to your Sharpmaker to add that razor finish. :)

    Hey Daron! Always great to see you my brother! You mention the diamond triangles - isn't that what I bought? The stones with diamond dust on them I show in the vid?

    I am not sure if you have these diamond stones in your set, John. Normally they are add on. The standard Sharpmaker 204 comes with just 2 sets of alumina ceramic stones. The brown is medium grit while the white is fine grit. The diamond stone is actually steel triangle rod with diamond dust coating on them. It works great on harder materials.

    Daron - if you watch the video all the way through, you'll see I purchased the accessory diamond rods. ;D
