The Edge Pro Professional System
Knife sharpening at its finest
All systems include the book "The Secret World of Sharpening" except the standard Apex model.
All systems include carry case, wash cloth, water bottle and instructions.
Bulletin: Ben just keeps making improvements and the system just keeps getting better. Previously he upgraded the old 180 stone to a faster cutting 220 stone and then changed the older 220 for a 320 stone in the standard package. Now he has gone and changed the old 600 grit stone to a super 800 grit stone.
I have upgraded my packages to correspond and if I miss something in my site upgrade, please let me know.
Two stones, washcloth, water bottle, instructions and carry case.
It's all about satisfaction, in order to succeed, you need both quality tools and the knowledge to use them to the fullest degree.
And because it's all about satisfaction, I suggest that you use the system the same way that I do.
Purchase the Apex Edge Pro knife sharpener for the low price of $150.00 and the 800 grit stone for only $14.00 This will give you the system that I use to get those razor sharp edges, a 220, 320 and 800 grit stones.
To top it all off, I will include my book, free of charge "The Secret World of Sharpening". Now you will have the tools and the know how to get the quickest and sharpest edge at a very competitive price.
The Edge Pro knife sharpeners are one of the most precise knife sharpening tools ever designed and can be adjusted to any angle to accommodate your needs. It is very easy to use and combined with some instruction as found in my book "The Secret World of Knife Sharpening" you will become an accomplished knife sharpener with little effort using this equipment.
Ben Dale is the inventor of this knife sharpening system and I fell in love with them after watching Ben demonstrate at the OKCA knife show in Eugene, Oregon. I think that you will enjoy using it as much as I have.
I offer these Apex knife sharpeners with three stones (220, 320 and 800 grit) instead of the original two (180 and 220 grit) because it works best for me and I think that you will like this combo too.. So if you like really sharp knives, I mean scary sharp, take me up on my offer of my free book and order the special from the shopping cart below.
Additional 800 grit knife sharpening stone, $14.00
"The Secret World of Sharpening" $4.95 Free

Some time folks like a little more option with the knife sharpener and I have noticed that some are purchasing items not offered with the special and some of these items make good sense as they are the same knife sharpening items that I use myself.
At times we will have a knife that is very dull or was made too thick at the edge to begin with. These knives will take a good deal more work to establish the correct edge. The 120 grit stone will cut much faster and shorten the amount of work necessary to complete the job of sharpening and is added to this knife sharpening package.
And for those who want the ultimate in sharp, we include one tape blank and tapes.
This set includes 120, 220, 320, 800 grit stones, one tape blank, packet of 2,000 grit sticky back polish tapes, manual, wash cloth, carry case and my book "The Secret World of Sharpening".
All for $180.00

The Complete and Ultimate Edge Pro Apex Knife Sharpening System
The Edge Pro Apex knife sharpening system special with 3 stones has been a very popular package and works very well and I believe it will remain the most popular knife sharpener package that I offer.
The set would not be complete without the 120 grit stone as it will reduce the time it takes to sharpen a very dull knife.
The second item to be added to the package is one polishing tape blank and a packet of 2,000 grit polishing tapes and this will take your blades to the ultimate edge. You must be careful to stroke away from the edge only so as not to cut the tape off of the blank and I find that if I raise the guide rod slightly it will ensure that I am working on the edge and not on the heal. The main reason for this is that a change in the thickness of the stone or blank from one to another will result in a slight change in the angle.
The third item to be added to the system is the video. After reading the knife sharpening manual, the video will make it all come together with clarity. If a picture is worth a thousand words, how much is a "how to sharpen knives" video worth.
For a quick touch up between sharpening we will also enclose the ceramic steel.
A recap of the complete system as I offer it is; Edge Pro Apex with four stones (120, 220, 320 and 800 grit), one tape blank with packet of 2,000 grit tapes, ceramic steel, video, manual, wash cloth, water bottle and carry case.
The system would not be complete with out my little book "The Secret World of Sharpening" to explain in detail what it takes to get an edge.
My price is only $200.00

If you have several knives that are in dire need of reconditioning or thinning, or you do not want to take the time, you may want to have these knives worked over by a professional knife sharpener who is set up to do it quickly with a belt grinder. I offer a mail in knife sharpening service and will recondition the knives for you so that conventional knife sharpening is made easy again.
