Compact Sharpener Options for Bushcraft Knives and Tactical Fixed-Blades

Bushcraft knives and tactical fixed blades are usually large blades that typically have thick spines. These types of knives can sometimes require wider sharpening angles. For these reasons, you'll want to choose a sharpener that has a wide angle range and a vise that can open up wide to accommodate thick blades. As someone who wants a lightweight/compact sharpening system, these are the best sharpener options for you. Either of the below options will make a great choice.

 

Wicked Edge GO

The Wicked Edge GO Knife Sharpener is our most compact and lightweight sharpener. It was specifically designed to be broken down and stored easily in a cabinet or a drawer. It comes with a C-clamp for sharpening stability, so you can simply set it up to sharpen on your counter, table, or workbench.

 

The Wicked Edge GO has an angle range of 15 to 30 degrees per side, which will meet the sharpening requirements for your fixed-blade knives. The sharpener's knife clamp can open up to 1/4", so you can easily clamp your thicker blades.


Wicked Edge GO Deluxe Pack

The Wicked Edge GO Deluxe Pack includes the Wicked Edge GO sharpener, and it also includes a larger carrying/storage bag and two additional sets of abrasives: 800/1000 Grit Diamond Stones and 5/3.5 Micron Leather Strops. With these additional abrasives, you will create truly spectacularly sharp edges on your knives.
