KME Precision Knife Sharpening System KF-D4 with Base - with 4 KME Gold Series Hones
(model KF-D4 and KF-Base)
The KME Knife Sharpening System, with it's rotating blade clamp and spherical rod guiding system, offers easy precision sharpening. The rotating blade clamp, pioneered by KME, speeds up the sharpening process and the bearing rod guide maintains precise angles making it easy for ANYONE to sharpen their knives. It is small and portable, and offers capabilities and features beyond comparable systems
The sharpener allows continuous angle adjustments from 17 to 30 degrees and is marked out in single degree increments for easy angle selection. The clamp is neoprene lined to protect your blades from scratching or marring, and is marked with two depth lines to assist with repositioning the knife for touch ups. It has beautiful cherry wood for the grip and stone holder as well as the available base (base not included). Their stone holder allows for quick stone changes of the 1" wide stones with a simple knurled thumb screw system and all their sharpening accessories screw firmly onto the same guide-rod.
With the addition of the broadhead jaws which are sold separately, the KME knife sharpening system will work on broadheads too!
It is an all around great sharpening system for home and field use.
