Gatco Edgemate Knife Sharpening System
GATCO® sharpening systems make it easy for anyone to achieve great results in sharpening knives, tools and more.
This is their entry level kit which offers everything needed to put a great edge on kitchen, sport, and utility cutlery with non serrated edges (optional accessory handles available to allow serrated blade sharpening).
This system contains:
- GATCO® exclusive knife clamp/angle guide
- 3 Sharpening Hones; Coarse (120), Medium (220) & Fine (320)
- FDA approved honing oil
- Custom hard carrying case and with instructions permanently affixed to the lid and room for two additional hones
Their kits include their exclusive GATCO® knife clamp/angle guide system which has a couple important distinguishing features. One is that the clamp screws have knurled heads designed for finger tightening, so no tools required to clamp your blade. Another is the 6 angle choices which span a wide range of angles - 11°, 15°, 19°, 22°, 25° and 30° (angle guide selection reference chart is included on instructions attached to inside of case lid). The knife/clamp guide does a good job of holding most knives in place and ensures a precise honing action.
All GATCO® sharpening hone handles are ergonomically/safety designed to protect fingers and enhance comfort and have an integral guide rod holder with sliding guide rod: easy-out for use, easy-in for storage. The hones are longer and wider than competitive systems, allowing faster and more efficicent sharpening and their premium grade abrasives insure fast cutting of all steels, even those which have traditionally been difficult to sharpen.
