Whether its a kitchen knife or an EDC blade, learning how to sharpen your knives is an essential skill. A sharp knife not only does a better job with everyday tasks (like finely chopping ingredients or opening packages) but it’s also, well, oh-so-satisfying. Learning how to take care of your knives might seem daunting, but it really isn’t as hard as it seems with Work Sharp. Work Sharp’s Orginal Knife and Tool Sharpener is a tried and true legend in knife sharpening, using a combination of belts to transform a damaged blade into a razor-sharp knife. It relies on two angle-guided slots that guide your knife at either a 20 or 25-degree angle, allowing the belt to come in contact with the very tip of the bevel and restore a factory sharp edge in minutes. What’s even better, is that Work Sharp goes beyond sharpening just knives as this tool stays true to its name — it’s capable of sharpening nearly all edged tools such as hatchets, lawnmower blades, shovels and more. And on Sunday the 28th, you can pick one up at a great discount on Amazon’s Deal of the Day.
