Buying a Knife Sharpener: Tips and Basics
There are some important facts everyone should understand before buying a new knife sharpener. For example, you will have to determine what sharpening surface will be ideal for your needs. In addition, you can choose between Manual or Electric Knife Sharpeners to sharpen your tools and knives. The following information is intended to provide you with some basic knowledge to help you determine which of the affordable knife sharpeners available for sale at The Hunting and Fishing Connection is ideal for your needs.
Choosing Between a Coarse or Fine Knife Sharpener
Knife sharpeners come in a range of textures from extra coarse to fine, and sometimes even extra fine. The level of coarseness, which you will need for sharpening your knife, can be determined by the frequency with which you sharpen your blade as well as the overall abuse your tool blade encounters. Generally, when sharpening your knife blades, you will begin with a coarse sharpener and then polish and finish the edge with a fine knife sharpener.
Using a Manual Knife Sharpener vs. Electric Knife Sharpener
Types of manual knife sharpeners include sharpening stones, V sharpeners, and sharpening steels. With the right technique, these sharpeners can result in superior edges for all types of knives and tools. Often chefs, hunters, and other outdoorsmen, prefer the use of a manual knife sharpener because it offers greater control when sharpening a blade. In addition, manual knife sharpeners are more portable, perfect for the hunter or camper who may need to sharpen knives and other tools while in the field.
Electric knife sharpeners come in a variety of sizes and styles. Most often an electric knife sharpener consists of a wheel turned by an electric motor. By moving the edge of a blade over the coated surface of the sharpening wheel, a bevel can be created on your knife edge. Some prefer the convenience of an electric sharpener as it is quicker and easier to operate than a manual sharpener. All of the quality electric knife sharpeners that we sell are ideal for honing your kitchen knives and other outdoor knives and tools to the perfect edge while offering a great value at an affordable price.
Using Sharpening Stones as Knife Sharpeners
There are a wide variety of sharpening stones available on the market today. Several varieties of knife sharpening stones include silicon carbide sharpening stones, diamond sharpening stones, and other ceramic or natural stones. Sharpening stones can be used dry or with a lubrication of either water or oil.
Benefits of Diamond Knife Sharpeners
A diamond knife sharpener is an effective tool for sharpening almost any knife blade quickly. Diamond knife sharpeners can be used without any lubrication, making them convenient and easy to use. Diamond knife sharpeners are often constructed out of stone coated in a layer of sharp diamond fragments that have been bonded with steel. This results in a hard surface ideal for sharpening steel and iron tools and knives.
Diamond sharpeners can also be made in the form of V sharpeners. Diamond V knife sharpeners are made with two diamond coated steel rods aligned in the shape of a V. As a knife is pulled through this V shape, the sharpener will sharpen both sides of the blade equally.
