How to Use the BladeMedic Knife Sharpener

August 16, 2021

The BladeMedic Knife Sharpener is the first responder for field repairs on all types of knife blades. It’s like having an entire sharpening kit right in your pocket.

Carbide Slot

Use the carbide slot to set an edge for an extremely dull blade, or to sharpen a blade in seconds. Just three or four strokes using moderate pressure will restore your blade. Note: Tungsten carbide is extremely aggressive, and should only be used for super quick sharpening as the need arises. For general edge maintenance, use the Serrated Ceramic element, or the Diamond Tapered Rod.

Ceramic Slot

Polish and finish an edge in three or four strokes. Use the ceramic slot as the finishing step to using the carbide element. The fine ceramic rods can be used on their own to provide a “touch-up” sharpening to relatively sharp blades. The rods in the ceramic slot are not very aggressive and can be used on your blade often.

Serrated Knife Sharpener

Designed to get inside small and large serrations. Always move the blade away from your hand. For larger serrations, use a sweeping motion with the sharpener to cover the entire surface of the serration.

This Medium Grit ceramic element can also be used on its own in a bench stone type fashion, or like a butcher’s steel. The Medium ceramic element is harder than steel, will never wear out, and should be used often as the primary sharpening element of your BladeMedic. Eventually metal shavings will accumulate as dark streaks on the ceramic and will slow effectiveness. Clean with a Lansky EraserBlock.

Diamond Tapered Sharpening Rod

For very fast reconditioning and maintenance of both straight and serrated blades. Excellent for gut hooks. The Tapered shape of the fine diamond rod allows for greater versatility enabling the user to quickly sharpen small and large serrations, or to use like a butcher’s steel on straight blades. It is recommended that the diamond rod be used sparingly. Its recommended use is for when sharpening speed is crucial, or for hard to sharpen items such as gut hooks. (The use of lubrication/honing oil is not recommended with our diamond sharpening products).
