Questions & Answers for "FREE SHIPPING - Work Sharp Knife and Tool Sharpener - Ken Onion Edition, Model# WSKTS-KO"

Question

This model shows a cutting angle of 15 to 30 degrees; the smaller model says 40 and 50 degrees. I am confused by the big difference.

I want a sharpener for kitchen knives, scissors and lawnmower blades. Which unit makes more sense given the big difference in cutting angle?

The smaller model, item #156115 uses two guides while the Ken Onion Edition has an a fully adjustable guide in increments of 1degree from 15 to 30 degrees. The smaller edition with the two guides is not adjustable in increments of 1 degree but provides a 50° guide for hunting and outdoor knives (25° per bevel); and a 40° guide for thinner blades and kitchen knives (20° per bevel).
You can sharpen a lawnmower blade on either product. See smaller edition below.

The Onion Edition has more power and versatility. There are also wide angle slots on the guide. The small angles are on the top. I like the Onion much better. It has enough power to do the heavier chores.

Most chipper manufacturers recommend that the blades be machined to keep the proper gap across the entire blade. I would be concerned that I would not be able to control the sweep across the blade well enough to keep it even. The disk sharpener WS3000 may be able to keep the geometry since you can sharpen the entire face at once. I would be leery of this though.

That depends on what you are cutting and how well you take care of your knives. The edge this tool produces seems to last longer that a factory edge. It is very easy to re-sharpen a knife so keeping them sharp isn't a problem.

No, all the belts are abrasive, from course to fine. I have used it to sharpen axes and knives. If a strop is needed I recommend doing that by hand. I have used my knife to gut and skin a deer with ease.

It's relatively easy to change the belt on this knife and tool sharpener. First, you'll lift and hold the belt change lever to remove the old belt. Second, you'll route the new belt around all 3 pulleys, then release the lever. Overall, it should take less than a minute to change the belt.
