Finding the best pocket knife sharpener depends greatly on the specific user. It is a given that these sharpeners would be small, compact and light-weight. It leans more on the user’s preference and budget. The design is also a factor dependent on the specific user’s preference. In the end, the best sharpener would be the one best suited for your needs.

Types of Sharpeners

There are two general types of pocket knife sharpener based on the material and this dictates how much the sharpener would cost. The first and most common is the combination of carbide and ceramic sharpener. Now this kind of sharpeners has been in use for a very long time as it is readily available and not so pricey. Then you have the diamond coated sharpener, which as you would provably guess is more expensive than the carbide and ceramic sharpener. The use of this material is fairly young and could be described as the more advance way to sharpen cutting tools. In the end, choosing the best pink pocket knife sharpener for you might boil down to how much you are willing to spend for it.

Size Considerations

As the name implies, pocket-sized things should be small enough to fit in your pocket. But it is not just about the size, you have to factor in your own style in your preference. There are two common designs; the first is the key-holder design. This is a very typical design as it can replace your ordinary key-holder that might have very little use other than holding your keys. The second design is the pen-type. As the name suggest, this design is easily concealable, usually slim and easy to handle as it is configured to work like the full-sized blade sharpeners. Your choice of design depends solely on your personal style.

As you can see, there could be no just one “best” pocket knife sharpener. The material and design should be just the right one for you.

How to sharpen a knife with just a brick and leather belt!

How to find a great electric knife sharpener

Hello, this soup.io page is about the best electric knife sharpener you can buy. If you have knives that can't cut a tomato's skin easily or cut bread without making them into bread sticks, you should consider sharpening your knives.

There are lots of options when you're considering knife sharpening. You can send them to some manufacturer's to get a factor sharp blade. Benchmade, Cutco, Spyderco, and a few other high end manufacturer's do this at no or a really low cost. If your knives do not qualify for that program, you can also send them in to a professional knife sharpener in your area to be sharpened as well. The issue with that is that it is usually expensive and sharpening a whole kitchen's worth of knives will cost you more than other, cheaper alternatives.

An electric knife sharpener usually costs anywhere from $50 to $150 and the best knife sharpener you can get is actually a lot cheaper than what you're expecting. In fact, the Presto 8810 costs $50 and performs as well as top end, three digit models.

Other ways to sharpen knives include pull through knife sharpeners, knife sharpening systems, machine sharpening, using ceramic or stones, as well as a brick and leather belt.
