This is the one sharpener I will delay leaving on an outing if it isn't in the pack where it belongs, (and i do check it visually every time). Not only can I sharpen every edge in my camp as needed, quickly and easily, but I put this tool to one more use you don't mention. I use it to scrape my Ferrocerium Rod a couple of times into the tender bundle then strike sparks from the rod with it for a 'never fails' fire in the tender, which I quickly transfer to my waiting firewood stack. I used to go to the scrap yard and buy used Tungston Carbide tool tips that were replaced and brasse them onto handles to do the same thing, but the handles weren't always comfortable and would turn in your hand. This tool is so much better and the Ferrocerium Rod does not dull it or in any way keep it from it's primary job of sharpening other tools. More than a great job on this one guys. Thanks!

I bought one of your axe sharpeners last week and when I got it one of the sharpening stones was missing , can it be replaced?

Step 1 - Grip the sharpener with your hand making sure your fingers and thumb are behind the handguard. Place item to be sharpened on a flat, solid surface, cutting edge up. Let about 1” of the blade extend beyond the edge of the surface as in figure 1. Hold the blade steady with one hand as you begin to sharpen with the other.

Step 2 - Position tungsten carbide head of the Axe & Machete Sharpener on the edge of the blade as shown in figure 2. Use a 20º-25º angle to achieve an extremely sharp edgeon a machete. For a more durable edge on a machete, or for axes, hatchets, shovelsetc., use a 25º-30º angle. 

Step 3 - Using moderate pressure push the sharpener away from you along the blade as seen in figure 1. You can use the sharpener right or left handed, and you can position the sharpener above or below the blade as in figure 1.   Repeat the process 3 - 4times on either side of the blade until the blade is sharpened. Do not use excessiveforce or over sharpen.

Be Smart, Be Safe and Stay an Edge Above the Rest!

CAUTION: Knife sharpening is an inherently dangerous activity. Used properly this sharpener cannot hurt you but a carelessly handled blade or pointed object can.
