    The best knife sharpener by far!

    I have had one of these for years and been meaning to post about it except its never here as mates keep borrowing it!
    It swivels the knife 180 by just pulling the the clamp out and turning.
    A 2 second job compared to unbolting and flipping over.
    I had to borrow it back as all my knives need dealing to!

    Looks the biz alright

    Sharpening a knife by hand is an art form attempted by many but mastered by few.

    Any chance I can borrow it

    Cheers

    I saw an old fellah using one like that at the Sika show last year. The knives were insanely sharp.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Especially when ya finish them with an arkansas polishung stone.
    Its good when the knives are sharp as it dosnt hurt as much when ya cut ya finger tips off!

    I also call them steer dorkers, but we don't actually shoot them around here.
    I have a similar knife sharpener called a Butchers Buddy. Really good for breaking down a rough knife, but I still prefer to finish a knife by hand.

    Yep I bought a 6 peice set years ago, bloody expensive but buy once cry once.
    Havung a wife and three boys its a miricale that there is still 4 in the knife block.
    Its going to be great when the little buggers leave school get a job and then they can loose and break their own tools and knives!
    Then I only have to deal with the wife stealing my tools and taking them to her work (kindy) and then denying she hasn't touched them!
