As a knife maker, the most important factors to consider when choosing a sharpener are the types of knives you make and how frequently you produce knives. For small-shop knife makers, we recommend choosing a sharpener model that has more versatility in it's sharpening abilities, so you never run across a sharpening job that your sharpener can't handle. For larger knife making operations that make a lot of knives, and if there's not much variety in the types of knives being made, we recommend choosing a sharpener that's built for more convenience and speed.
Note: If your edge width is greater than 0.040", consider using powered equipment tp create your initial edge grind, and then give your customers the best edges possible by finishing your knives on a Wicked Edge.
These are the sharpener models we recommend for knife makers.
