The Work Sharp Guided Sharpening System is a complete sharpening solution for every knife you own. It features the innovative Pivot-Response System which allows the abrasive to follow the curve of the blade – making manual sharpening faster, easier and more precise than ever.




Guided Sharpening System

The Guided Sharpening System (GSS) is Work Sharp’s complete benchtop sharpening and honing system. The GSS was created with both novice and master sharpeners in mind, and can be used to sharpen every knife you own. The innovative Pivot-Response System follows the curve of the blade while sharpening, putting a sharp edge along the entire length of the blade. The skill is built into the tool. No jigs. No clamps. No nonsense.

Use the GSS to put a perfect edge on your pocket, hunting, and kitchen knives – as well as serrations, fish hooks, and tools – while mastering your manual sharpening skills. Experienced sharpeners will appreciate the thought-out features that make this such a versatile and complete knife and tool sharpening system.

With the Guided Sharpening System, you have the choice of how you want to sharpen a knife, based on your skill level and the type of blade you want to sharpen. The Pivot-Response can be locked-out, creating a traditional sharpening surface for straight blades, or engaged to evenly sharpen curved blades – without changing the sharpening motion. If you are new to sharpening or haven’t had success with sharpening stones, activating the Pivot-Response will do the work for you. It puts the skill in the tool and makes manual sharpening easy.

    The Guided Sharpening System features:
  • 1.25" x 6” coarse (320 grit) and fine (600 grit) Diamond Sharpening Plates
  • 17° and 20° Angle Guides
  • Coarse and Fine Ceramic Hone with built-in Angle Guides
  • 3 sizes of ceramic rods to sharpen serrations
  • Pivot-Response technology
  • Removable diamond plate holder for sharpening tools

    Sharpens:
  • • Curved Blades
  • • Straight Blades
  • • Serrations
  • • Tools
  • • Hooks and Fine Points

One of the most challenging aspects of sharpening with flat stones is achieving a consistently sharp edge along the entire length of the blade. The proper angle must be maintained during the entire sharpening process. While straight blades require a simple push along the abrasive, curved blades must rotate along the profile while maintaining the proper sharpening angle. The technique is difficult and time consuming to master. Pivot-Response puts the skill into the Guided Sharpening System, allowing you to use the same, simple, straight-blade technique with curved blades. There’s no need to master a different technique for different blade profiles or use the complicated jigs and elaborate clamping systems found on other sharpeners. Pivot-Response can also be locked out, creating a traditional rigid sharpening stone surface.

Also available: The Guided Sharpening System Upgrade Kit. This Upgrade Kit extends the range of diamond plates by adding an Extra-Coarse 220 Girt for blade repair and coarse tool sharpening, an Extra-Fine 800 Grit for delicate sharpening tasks and edge refinement, plus a Leather Stropping plate with 0.5 micron honing compound and a 25° Stropping Angle Guide.

I've tried them all. Work shop grinder wheels, professional kitchen sharpeners, you know, the kind that vibrate. Japanese wet stones, compared to the Work Sharp, they are all junk. I'll never buy it use anything other that the Work Sharp system. Thank you.

I will admit to having spent hundreds and maybe thousands in search of the perfect, reasonably portable system. I also own the Work Sharp belt abrasive standard edition, and while I adore it, the WS Guided Sharpening System is the only one I would never give up. 10/10. Solid feel and never leaves my bag.

I own several sharpening products, including a power work sharp abrasive belt sharpener, love them all. I have to say, though, the guided system is masterfully made and is the only one I would refuse to give up. Skandia grinds, sabre, flat, my favorite grinds are easily sharpened, honed, and restored. An honest 10/10! Keep in mind I also have gone through everything from spyderco to lansky to Gerber solutions...but nothing compares to my solid guided system, which is portable enough for me to always carry. I just love Darex and Work Sharp. Nabil, Md
