KME Convexing Guide Rod
Ever wanted to establish and maintain a convex edge on your knives using your KME Sharpener without building them from a combination of angles. Well now you can create a true radius, convex bevels!
KME's new convexing guide rod screws right into any KME stone carrier allowing a convex edge to be built - and then maintained without changing angles. The convexing rod is formed in a smooth uniform curve which results in approximately 5 degrees of angle change from the beginning of each stroke to the end. This gradual, 5 degree angle change produces beautifully rounded bevels which were previously only possible by free-hand sharpening with sandpaper on a soft backer pad or with belt sanders.
The rod includes an adjustable stop to prevent the possibility of scratching your blades, and a knurled thumb nut for locking the rod in place in perfect position.
