Detailed Description

  • The Razor Sharp Edgemaking System consists of two compressed paper wheels that will fit on any buffer or bench grinder.
  • One wheel is coated with 180 grit Silicon Carbide and is used to develop a burr or wire-edge along the cutting edge.
  • The included Conditioning Wax (a special formula of fats, oils and waxes) is applied to the grit wheel to lubricate and control heat.
  • The second wheel is slotted and, with the help of the included jeweler's rouge, is used to remove burrs and polish the cutting edge.
  • A grit wheel will sharpen a couple hundred knives before it needs recoating.
  • An additional 3oz container of Silicon Carbide is provided with the kit, enough to recoat the grit wheel 15 to 20 times.
  • Complete instructions are included in each kit.


  • Wheels are available in 8" or 10" diameters.
  • If you are using a 6" bench grinder, you want the 8" Deluxe kit.
  • The reason for this is that in order to sharpen a knife properly, you must have enough clearance between the face of the wheel and the face of the motor housing to accommodate the handle and your fingers.
  • If you are using an 8" bench grinder, you want the 10" Deluxe kit.

Kit Includes:

  • 1 each - 8" Grit Coated Wheel
  • 1 each - 8" Slotted Wheel
  • 1 each - 2oz. jar of 180 grit Silcon Carbide
  • 1 each - Chrome Polishing Compound "cake"
  • 1 each - Conditioning Wax

You now own the world's best sharpening system - it will put a great edge on almost any tool that can be held up to the wheels!
