GATCO® Edgemate™ Professional Knife Sharpening System
GATCO® sharpening systems make it easy for anyone to achieve great results in sharpening knives, tools and more.
This is their complete kit which offers everything needed to put amazing edges on kitchen, sport, and utility cutlery including those with serrated edges. It adds to the basic Edgemate™ kit more repair capabilities with an 80 grit hone and a triangular stone to maintain serrated edges. We used this kit for many years on all of our knives, with the addition of the two finer ceramic hones when looking for an even sharper and more polished edge.
This system contains:
GATCO® exclusive knife clamp/angle guide
5 Sharpening Hones; Extra-Coarse (80), Coarse (120), Medium (220), Fine (320) & Medium triangular serrated blade hone (350/400)
FDA approved honing oil
Custom hard carrying case and with instructions permanently affixed to the lid
Their kits include their exclusive GATCO® knife clamp/angle guide system which has a couple important distinguishing features. One is that the clamp screws are large, with knurled heads designed for finger tightening, so no tools required to clamp your blade. Another is the wide range of angle choices, 6 angle choices - 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.
