    I know that feeling, but also in hindsight I must have pissed my father at times. He used to lock his good stuff away!

    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.
    Apparently its not standard practice to shoot steer dorkers unless they are running left to right at high speed and weaving!
    The beauty of the eze-sharp is the vice swivels 180 degrees by simply pulling it out and giving it a twist and self locks.
    The other bonuses are that it has infinitely adjustable angles and you can use any stones you desire as they just clamp into their holder.
    I personally use three grits.
    An extremely corse for fucked freinds knives and then a fairly fine stone finished with an arkansas polishing stone.
    I came across the eze sharp in western aussie when I spent a couple of seasons in a contract muelsing gang and was sold on how great they are.
    They need another clamp for sharpening the muelsing shears (dagging) and will also fit hedge clippers ect.
    Just search for eze-sharp au
    My favorite sentences i like to hear are - I suppose so. and Send It!

    I was always a bit of a sharp freak, but this system is fcukin INSANE ... and the dude who runs it has the best customer service I've seen in AGES

    He also makes these polished stainless steels which are fantastic ...

    Scary Sharp - Constant Angle Sharpening System
    Yep that is the one that I saw while there.
    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

    I have one of the original scary sharps for sale if anyone is interested. Comes with two stones and holders and the extra angle adjustment block for final honing. As new. Only used 4-5 times. $300 plus freight or pick up South Auckland or Onehunga. Only reason for sale is that I forced my self to learn to sharpen free hand so don't use it now.

    I was thinking about trying to sell my scary sharp too, and put the value towards upgrading my hunting rifle instead.

    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!
    Just picked up one of these. Bought the main body here and got the handle from Aussie. Very good service from the company.

    I have a scary sharp, got a custom clamp as well to do small blades, great customer service and a kiwi product is a bonus, only limiting factors are the that there are only three angles (although you probably only need two unless you are super fussy) and the act that even the translucent Arkansas stone goes to about 1400 grit, which is still a tad tooth for me. Mind you it’s damn quick to get a very workable edge...oh and it makes a huge mess, need to use it in the shed and it’s not exactly portable.

    Today my new wicked edge is ready to be picked up, hoping to be able to put insanely sharp polished edges on my knives now, and scissors too, once I get the hang of it I will be doing a comparative review...

    If it works out I am looking at doing a sharpening service, as well as a knife repair one.

    Who are you getting the wicked edge thru?
    I like the look of them. Especially the clamp.
    I have a lansky and can get a couple of my knives sharp but others are a waste of time due to the flimsy clamp.
