Worksharp, a company known for making knife and tool sharpening equipment, is now offering the new Worksharp Professional Precision Adjust Knife Sharpener which follows the excellent feedback and reception from the original Precision Adjust Knife Sharpener. The Precision Adjust Knife Sharpener is a jig and clamp style manual sharpener that makes it easier to manually sharpen knives by hand because the blades are held in place at the correct angles needed for a properly keen edge. The sharpening surface consists of three sides with 320, 600 and diamond-fine ceramic for three different levels of material removal and honing. 

The Professional Precision Adjust Knife Sharpener builds off of the original but uses metal construction, a digital angle indicator and seven different abrasive grit levels instead of the three from the original model. Though this version retails for about five times the cost of the original, it is meant for more heavy duty and daily use, particularly for those who either service or manufacture their own knives or for those who must service various styles of knives on a regular basis. This sharpener works with all blade sizes and shapes from kitchen knives to specialty knives or outdoor knives.  

The sharpening angle on the Professional Precision Adjust Knife Sharpener can easily adjust from a range of 15 to 30 degrees with the digital display providing a readout to the user. This knife sharpener includes the full assortment of one inch by six-inch abrasives of 220, 320, 400, 600 and 800 grit diamond in addition two a ceramic honing plate and a leather strop used for polishing edges to mirror sharp. These abrasives are easily swapped out via a common handle. The device makes use of a non-marring V-block clamp that secures blades, and its weight provides benchtop stability so that knives can be moved and sharpened safely.
