Blade Grinding Attachment for the Ken Onion Edition Knife & Tool Sharpener

Attachment ONLY! Requires the Ken Onion Edition Knife & Tool Sharpener to function. (SOLD SEPARATELY)

Blade Grinding Attachment – Ken Onion Edition

The Blade Grinding Attachment is designed for knife shaping, sharpening and honing tasks.

The Work Sharp Blade Grinding Attachment is constructed using cast metal components and engineered polymers built to endure the rigors of heavy shaping and sharpening tasks. The unit quickly connects to the Ken Onion Edition Knife & Tool Sharpener without tools, and belts are easily changed by hand.

The blade grinder uses 1”x18” engineered abrasive belts in a wide range of grits, and a 4 pulley system that is fully adjustable from 10° to 35° in 1° increments. Belt speed is adjustable from 1200-2800 SFM (square feet per minute) to accommodate a wide range of sharpening and honing tasks.

The center position of the top two pulleys is adjustable to set your preferred belt deflection – a full convex or a near flat convex – allowing you to customize your cutting edge to best meet your needs and preferences. The Work Sharp Blade Grinding Attachment is similar in design to the systems professional blade makers use, providing knife enthusiasts with a high-quality, precise machine to shape, sharpen and hone your blades without the cost of full scale blade maker’s equipment.

Best Knife Sharpener bar none! by Motordoc
I saw one of these about 5 years ago at a trade show, allways wanted one, but had the chance, last week, to use one a friend bought and finally decided to buy it for myself. Only one thing I am worried about, that the other members of my household might be surprised by the extreme sharpness of our regular cutlery. This item should come with free CAUTION SHARP!!! Stickers. to remind everyone the first few days of the change!!!

Works good, but...... by Bert
It works good, but, the learning curve took longer than I thought. The results were great. I've even had some friends buy their own after watching me use mine (and saying if Bert can use it it must be easy!)

Awesome Addition to KO Sharpener by darnolddawg
This is simply an awesome addition to the Ken Onion sharpener. However, this is as close to a professional tool that can be made in this size and at this price. It is not a cordless screwdriver, so be advised that you need to read and review the instructions carefully, and plan to practice on some old blades or steel stock before you dive all the way in. With a little patience and practice you will become proficient using the blade grinding attachment and really enjoy its capabilities.

Beyond the quality and usefulness of this tool, resides Darex Customer Service - simply the best I have ever encountered, bar none!

In my retirement, I now cook for 40 to 45 men in a halfway house and I've use knives and shears for six meals a week. I have learned the value of a truly sharp knife or sharp kitchen shears. The KO sharpener and blade grinding attachment insure that I never have to use a dull knife or tool. I even learned that you can sharpen old fashioned potato peelers, or reshape the hand guard (bolster) on forged chef's knives or slicers to keep them in line with the cutting edge of the blade.

All in all, a great tool and attachment, and even better customer service.
