Using the Blademedic 4 in 1 Knife Sharpener

October 8, 2015

The Blademedic® is an all-inclusive sharpener that was designed to be the first responder for field repairs on all types of knife blades. With the ability to tackle regular or serrated blades, gut hooks, and any number of other blades, the Blademedic® Knife Sharpener is ideal for travel and outdoor use, and gives users the ability to tackle any blade type and steel with ease. Each element provides a unique sharpening experience.

Tungsten Carbide

Just three or four strokes using moderate pressure will restore your blade. Tungsten Carbide is extremely aggressive though, and should only be used for quick sharpening as the need arises. For general edge maintenance, use the Serrated Ceramic element, or the Diamond Tapered Rod.


Ceramic Sharpening Rods

The Fine Ceramic Rods can be used on their own to provide a “touch-up” to relatively sharp blades. These rods are not very aggressive and can be used on your blade regularly.


Serrated Knife Sharpener

Diamond Tapered Rod

It is also 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. The Diamond Rod should be used sparingly, as diamond is an aggressive material. Use the Diamond Tapered Rod when sharpening speed is crucial, or for hard-to-sharpen items, such as gut hooks. Note: The use of lubrication/honing oil is not recommended with our diamond sharpening products.
