Many thanks to Spyderco for providing this for our use!

This passaround is for the Spyderco Triangle Sharpmaker sharpening system. It includes the sharpener and a DVD with instructions on its use.

If you have never tried one of these, I highly recommend it. With just a little practice, ANYONE can sharpen knives to shaving sharp. Seriously.

Just to let you guys know if it has 4% V or more your wont be getting rid of any chips unless you have hours. Also the diamond rod is a joke. If you press hard at all the diamond dust comes off. It is a touch up tool. Smart to try it first.

Thanks for dropping in Eric. I would agree that it can take many strokes to re-profile on the sharpmaker.

The diamond rods are actually diamond particulate on metal. Its not necessary to press hard, but if you do, the diamond medium can surely be dislodged.

I use a sharpmaker several times per week and consider it the must have tool. I use it for everything from small swiss army knives, to my large chef's knife. I have given many away as gifts.

After having just bought one recently I can save everybody time and money. BUY IT! Once you break in the brown rods, it will sharpen anything with an edge close to 15-20° quite quickly. I used it and sharpened 10 knives already set at 15° in about an hour, using all 4 stages. It does not reprofile too well, though, but I figure the diamond rods do that better. Seriously, though, buy it.

Thats a great deal.

I believe seriously that this sharpener is the easiest and consistently most effective sharpener out there.

I will give it a go. I had an old one, never got the hang of it, but it did not come with a DVD. Looking for a sharpening system for my Moras and such, debating between chosera stones, lansky system and I guess I will give this a second go.

Could I give it a shot? I'm trying to pick between this and the Edge Pro Apex..

My info should still be your PM box from the other pass-around.

    In response to Cornicus

Yes indeed

From my experience, I can say that the Edge Pro is best for establishing a bevel, and the spyderco sharpener is best for maintaining it.

I use my Edge Pro once in a great while, and the Spyderco sharpener multiple times per week.

I will locate and send the sharpener soon.

I hope i'm not getting off topic, but I thought I saw mention of 15-20 deg bevel?
What's the norm for Spyderco?
I have a Lansky setup & I had to go 25 deg for my Spyderco Byrd before it even attempted to get somewhat of an edge (but still not to my standards).

In the Spyderco SharpMaker DVD, Sal says that the factory strives to get you a 15 degree edge. However, they are done by hand, so figure a 1 degree margin.

I ALWAYS use the 40 degree angle, or 20 degrees per side.

In fact, I actually prefer the older 203 model that only has one set of angles.

I worked w/that Byrd for over an hour with my Lansky using 15 deg. per side to no avail. Went to 20 & got somewhat of an edge. Not arm-hair shaving, but it'll cut semi-solid butter.
I guess the Chinese Spyderco's aren't up to par w/US made ones?

    In response to JGKC9AYC

The Chinese Spydercos generally have inferior blade steel, but they should surely take an edge. The inferior aspect is that they generally will not keep the edge as long as a premium steel.
