Sharper Way to Sharpen

The old adage “A dull knife is more dangerous than a sharp one” comes from the notion that forcing a dull knife can easily lead to slips and mishaps. The Smith’s Pocket Pal knife sharpener lets you sharpen kitchen, hunting and pocket knives quickly and inexpensively. It consists of two V-shaped grooves: one with two coarse carbide stones to help reestablish the profile of extremely worn blades, and one with fine ceramic stones to provide a razorsharp cutting edge. I found it took about 10 swipes in the fine groove to sharpen moderately dull kitchen and pocket knives. It also features a round diamond-coated rod to sharpen the hills and valleys of serrated knives. The Smith’s Pocket Pal knife sharpener costs about $10.
