The GATCO Edgemate knife sharpener is specifically designed as an easy-to-carry tool that allows for quick and easy sharpening for all knives, whether they're used in the kitchen, in the workshop, hunting, fishing or as a general everyday utility tool. The handle of the knife is constructed from 6061-T2 aluminum, which is used in structural designs and is known for its durability.
At the working end of the sharpener, two sharpening blades are attached at a 35-degree angle. The blades are constructed from tungsten carbide, which sharpens blades quickly and allows for long-term use, thanks to the incredibly hard material used in their construction. The design of the sharpener, with its 35-degree angle, is specifically made for sharpening plain-edged blades only.
Other features of the Gatco Edgemate knife sharpener includes aggressive checkering located on the aluminum handle, which is CNC-machined into the solid material and provides enhanced control over the product. This ensures that owners have full control of their sharpener, giving them every advantage in producing a fine, sharpened blade. The handle is also coated in a hard-anodized finish in order to provide added durability, making it an ideal product to stick into any hunting, hiking or survival pack.
The overall length of the Edgemate is only 5 inches, and the aluminum design is incredibly lightweight. In addition to the durable design, the blades are attached with standard hex-head bolts, which means they can be easily replaced when the tungsten-carbide blades get dull.
The suggested retail price on the Gatco Edgemate knife sharpener is $19.99. Replacement carbide blades retail at a suggested price of $4.99.
