Edc knife sharpener so stay tuned to the intros. What’s up, my name is doug the bearded outdoorsman welcome to another video. If you enjoy beard product reviews, gear reviews, edc videos, then you have come to the right place. Take that first step. Click that subscribe button check out my website thebeardedoutdoorsman com over there. You can check out some discount codes and a lot of information about my channel and some stuff that I am working on. So let’s jump into this today we’re going to be talking about a pocket-sized knife.
Sharpener we’ve talked about something similar to this in the past, but this is a different brand and a whole different tool. So if you saw it in the title, this one is from work sharp, and that is what it looks like. Let me turn around this way, so you’ve got their logo here and on the front side it says, work sharp. This is the pivot. That is the the name of this design. Is the pivot and I’ve been using this for a little while now and I really like the design which is similar to other ones, we’ve tried, but I really like a couple of the features about this: what they incorporate into this tiny package.
So let’s talk about that so up top on this yellow, yellow part. Here we have convex carbide blades. So what you also have is you have a locking mechanism now, when this is pulled this way it has a little bit of play in here it’s hard to see on camera, but it has a little bit of play there now, when you lock this, it locks that in place, so it doesn’t give that play now that play comes in. I saw some of the reviews or some of the comments on amazon and people were like eh. It don’t really work.
It’s not really good. I like this because with it unlocked it allows this uh carbide blades to really float with your knife, so it gives it a good guide and really lets your knife flow through there. On the other side, we’ve got the ceramic honing blades and then on this side we have a diamond stone with a groove in here where you can use to sharpen fish hooks. Now one thing about this diamond stone I didn’t bring any out here, but with the diamond stone you can actually use it to sharpen an axe or a machete or something along those lines, a tool, a woodworking tool that needs a good blade.
Now, one of the questions that came up again in the amazon reviews was what is this angle of this carbide, because it doesn’t tell you uh on the website this angle. It sharpens at a 25 degree angle. Now all the knives that I have used on. It have worked out tremendously, so you basically use it and you come in here and you just sweep now I’ll- do a full tutorial how to use a knife sharpener like this, but you basically take it now. One of the biggest concerns with this is it does not give you an option for sharpening a serrated blade, all right, but just a flat blade.
You come in and and follow the edge on your knife like so you do that three four five six seven times to really get any any burrs or any any bad spots off of your knife, and then you flip it and you do the honing blade and what that’s going to do is it’s just gonna hone that blade down and what they recommend is that you do the same amount on both sides. So if you do 10 times up here, you flip it and you do 10 times on this side now also it does have rubber grips on either side.
So, if you’re holding this on a tabletop or something like that, it’s not going to move and run from you. I highly recommend doing that versus just trying to freehand it, because it gives you a lot more control and a lot more stability. So they have also added a lanyard hole here. Uh you can do something like a cobra knot, a snake knot, something like that with paracord, and then that way you have uh easier access to grab it out of your bag or pocket or whatever you’re carrying it.
In but anyway, let’s talk about price. This sells for right at four dollars on amazon, actually less than four dollars at the time of filming this, so really good, four dollar sharpener. That has done tremendously well. On my knives, like I said, I’ve tried it with a couple different knives. I tried it with my more knife. I tried it with my kershaw, my edc knife and a couple other little cheap knives. I’ve tried it with and it worked really really well. So, if you’re interested in me showing like a close-up breakdown of all these features and kind of just a short video drop it in the comments- and let me know- and and I’ll gladly do that, because there are a lot of sharpeners similar to this with the same kind of design out there on the market and if you don’t know exactly how to use one.
Let me know I’ll show like a little tutorial how to use this and the results so check it out. It is work sharp. This is the pivot. Now they have some bigger versions, but this is the pivot and it is perfect for edc- and I picked this up because it was four dollars and picked it up on amazon there’ll be a link in the description. If you want to get over and check out the listing, maybe check it out see if you want to make the purchase yourself, but really really good tools so get over check it out, like I said, links will be in the description check out my website.
If you like this video make sure to hit that thumbs up button make sure to hit subscribe. If you haven’t already uh, this video will be going into the playlist for edc stuff uh. There are some other sharpeners in there. There are uh knives and all kind of stuff dealing with edc gear. So this will be in that playlist and yeah. That’s all I got for you today, guys check it out, keep your knives sharp check it out and until next time stay bearded get outdoors and god bless you.
Work sharp to the knife sharpener: is it go anywhere, Prevnar, restore an edge or put a new edge on any blade? Basically, wherever you are, the pivot has the convex carbide with pivot response for initial sharpening. The convex carbide up here has the pivot response, so it allows for sharper edge on the carbide, so I can actually sharpen faster.
If I have a really goal, the convex blade shape allows for quick, sharpening a smooth cut, and then you flip it over and use the ceramic rods to hone that edge to a razor finish. It also has a diamond plate on the side for sharpening tools, and it has a groove in there for sharpening fish hooks things awesome for going where you go or sharpening Liew nature.
Hey, I’m carl and welcome back to my youtube channel we’re going to go over this knife sharpener, the pivot that is ws, p, edc t sharpens knives and tools, abrasives carbide and ceramic diamond ultralight, compact and three stage knife six tool: sharpener, let’s open this back up right here in the back and just give you a little bit of directions what to look forward to so I’m going to open this thing up. I have this knife uh using the previous video we’re gonna, just slice.
This thing open right here, pull this thing out: okay, sorry about that, my phone rang had to turn it off there. We go. Let’s get this thing out of this package without measuring. It looks like it’s about two inches square, two and a half inches square or so here is the the uh carbide. Sorry about that word left my mind there for a second carbide, ceramic and diamond on the bottom lanyard hole here on the side.
Got these little places right here that you can hold it with your fingers. Now with this is when you slide this little red button to the right, it locks. The the carbide blades in place, I believe I said that the right way. Let me look back here slide the red button left to activate pivot response. This allows the convex carbide mechanism to follow the curve of the blade and increase material removal for heavy sharpening slide the red button to lock out pivot.
This will reduce material takeoff and is better suited for lighter sharpening applications, so lift gives you more material. Take off right, gives you less material takeoff, there’s the button right there, so I’m going to start out with this way. We have this knife that I used in a previous video, and I have a rock right here- I’m going to take this knife and just run it over this rock a few times during this thing out.
You can hear that right, no trickery right here. I just want you to know that it is rubbing against the rock okay we’re going to do a little bit more take off. So I got a little slot in this table trying to miss that slot a little bit more material to take off. So I have it slid to the left and, as I’m pulling back, I’m lifting up on the blade and listen to the sound sound like a file going across metal. The more I pull through the less of that grinding, sound you’ll, hear do a few more two, three four five now we’ll go to the less aggressive slide this to the right one, two: three: four: five: six: seven, eight nine 10 11 12, 13, 14 15.
Now I’m just going to flip over and go to the ceramic rods, give that about 15 strokes. Three, four: five: six: seven, eight 9 10 11 12 13, 14 15! Oh, let’s give it a few more one, two, three, four five: six, seven, eight, nine, ten okay, I’ve got a piece of copy piper over here, we’ll see how sharp this is a little bit ripping sound right. There just run this through a few more times, one two, three four 5 6 7 10 11, 12, 13, 14 15.
Now, let’s try this out how about how about that not too bad. Is it not too bad? Not too bad could use a little bit more, but anyway you get the general idea of how to use this work sharp one more thing on here. We got the diamond grid on bottom. Let’s just say I have this axe right here do a little bit of sharpening on the axe. You could use your pocket knife on this, doesn’t matter little tool to have it’s got this slot in here you can use you use that on your fish hooks, one fella saw he sharpens his darts in this slot.
Great idea go this way with anyway, you get the idea under 10 bucks or right at 10 bucks or so not a bad tool to have appreciate to leave some kind of comment in the section below. If you have one of these, tell us how you like it. If you don’t like it, let us know that too appreciate you taking your time with us today. You.
This is the work sharp pivot knife sharpener. I picked this up at bass, pro shops for 3 99. I saw it. I saw it at academy sports for 5 99. I didn’t get it then, but when I saw it for 3 99 at bass pro, I went ahead and picked it up, not really something. I need, as I’m still enjoying this uh ruco yeah ruco knife sharpener um, but I want to go ahead and try it out also.
So I’m not a big knife, sharpening person uh, I do have a diamond pocket stone that I might use for uh certain applications, but I’m not a big fan of sitting there with a stone. I don’t need a razor sharp knife. My knives do what they need to do. They cut plastic, they cut rope, they cut paper, not always cutting hair, but I just I don’t really shave with it.
When I cut my hair, I just it’s sharp enough to cut the hair on my head. So that being said, um and most of my knives that I sharpen uh that I’ve had to sharpen are the softer steels. So anyway, I was curious to pick this up um, so the first time I saw it. I didn’t pick it up, because I have all the components already: uh the ceramic rods, the uh carbide and then the diamond stone, but for 3 99 I went ahead and picked it up um.
I did fall for the work, sharp name but anyway. So the thing about this too. It says you can sharpen serrations with it, which I haven’t tried, but I don’t really buy a lot of sorority knives serrated knives. Currently so, but according to this, you can sharpen uh serrations, you probably there’s the website to watch a demo.
It says of how to use the sharpener, but be warned if you pick this up. If you want to read what’s behind the flap, I didn’t really pay attention, yeah the glue, just kind of made a mess of it, which it’s not that big of a deal. But what does it say? There’s yes, he’s right there. It says serrations can be sharpened using the ceramic cone yeah.
So basically you do it the same way. You would use the regular. I am curious to find out how that lock works. The pivot, lock um. I don’t know if that would help with recurve blades, but I usually don’t have a problem with just using what I use so anyway. Um you know, I’m a big advocate for budget steals and I’m a big advocate for easy sharpening.
I know people that hate the pull throughs, but again I I’m not living a life that requires me to have a razor, sharp knife like all day for daily edc use. This works fine, I just got done cutting up some paracord and jute twine and some cardboard and the rest of this will be used to open packages and stuff like that.
So anyway, let me go and open this up. So here it is up close yeah. It’s got this uh. This is a uh, a coarser grit on the diamond stone and it’s got a little slot for fish hooks um. There’s your carbide and your ceramics little rubber feet there. It looks like the carbide. Is this the only one that uses the pivot lock hmm now to play with that a little bit more anyway? So there you go, this is the worksharp pivot knife sharpener.
Oh there so uh yeah looks like they went a bit more. You.
We’re looking at day three of zach’s week of work sharp and we have a great little pocket-sized knife sharpener from work sharp here. This is the work sharp pivot, plus knife sharpener. Now we’ll take a look around at this one got a little perfect sized thumb finger tab, so you can hold on to it. Also, you have this awesome, pretty sweet rod right here for serrations. So, overall, what do we have? We have something that’s perfect for sharpening and honing pretty much any blade you have.
So if you got your edc knives, your fillet knives uh anything with serrations. You know your edge tools like uh. You know your clippers for trimming, uh, shrubs or small little tree branches. Any of that stuff is good to go now. This has pivot technology built in has a carbide, and it has ceramic rod or excuse me ceramic sharpening slots now, tapered diamond rod inside here. Look at that just gives it the perfect way to put an edge on your knife so the way it works.
You basically hold it like this, and you just run your knife right through it to pull through you. Just all the way through and if you want to go faster, you can move this button back. You can do the pivot, make sure I can move it here there we go it’s locked in there, but this has the pivot technology. As you can see. Hopefully you can. When I push down, if it’s a little bit dull, you can see that move, and hopefully you can see that move in there a little bit, but it allows you to go a little bit deeper.
It moves with the knife. So even if you have a recurve anything like that to pull through you’re good to go, then you finish it up right here on the ceramic rods and you’re ready to go back to work. So just depending on how dull your knife is, that’s how much you want to you know, use it. So if you’re just touching it up after use, you can maybe even just do the ceramic rods that are in there that’d be pretty good little tapered rods, as you can see, the material took off and it just gives you that perfect perfect edge.
So, even if it’s convex or flat edge, it’ll move and adjust for it. So that’s pretty cool uh. The ceramic rod put the knife down safety first or I’m sorry diamond rod. So this is a diamond rod as you can see. So if you have those serrations different size, whatever I’m going to do this backwards, so you guys can see it on camera, but your larger serrations would go further up and you just work through those. If you have the smaller individual ones, you can go down to here and just work, those as well.
So this will literally take care of all your serrations, no matter their size, the only ones that might not work on right away, but you could still work them. Are those crazy wild tom vest? Serrations? That’s a whole other video, but this is a really cool tool, because you can throw this in your pocket. You can throw out any of your gear, you can keep it and it’s very, very well priced! You know it’s under it’s ten dollars.
It’s 9 95! You might even be able to get it cheaper at some knife, retailers um I’ve. Actually used this on a couple knives and I have one in my toolbox, so I really like it um. You know it’s smaller compared to like a guided field, sharpener, so there’s your size comparison to that. I know we covered that one on the channel already and this one’s 10 bucks. You know so by the time you wear one out, um you’re gonna be lots and lots of knives in, but overall super cool and it’s pull through design.
So I mean you can use this on. You know your flay knives, serrations kitchen knives, every edc knife you have recurves. All that just creates an edge with minimal, drag um. Pretty much sharpen every knife you own in here, um, I’m sure you could find some. You know maybe some big chop, bowies or buoys or whatever that may not sharpen in here, but those should fit as well. You know, but the blade size might matter at that point.
But overall you know they have that pivot technology follows the curve of the blade, so it makes it easier and more consistent and workshop’s the only one that uses the pull through technology sharpening line that sharpens to a true convex carbide edge for superior edge retention. So that’s pretty cool. You know pretty innovative, pretty cool something you can just on the fly good to go and you’re right back into whatever you’re working on so especially for hunting fishing.
Anything you’re out in the field just a sweet. Little thing: this is the pivot plus knife sharpener from work sharp. Let me know down in the comments. There’s some. Oh, my gosh. Look at that lanyard fans. Rejoice you guys, you’re! Looking out all these are they’re hitting the lane, your fans like crazy, so that’s pretty cool, but for 10 bucks. This is a really really cool. Pull through sharpener that’ll sharpen pretty much any knife you have.
So I I don’t know anything else that would beat it. If you know it type it down in the comments got some pretty cool technology overall, this one’s a win for me. So thanks you guys. Wrapping up day, three zak’s week of work, sharp look forward to more. I will talk with you soon. Do something kind for someone today have a great rest of your day. Most importantly, take care.
Howdy y’all today we’re gonna be talking about the Pitt series from work sharp, so we’ve got our camelus servicemen’s knife. That was my uncles when he was in the army and great-uncle I guess and my dad foolishly modified in his youth by stamping off the lanyard. Was it very fright, so that was very nice smooth touch so, as you can see, it’s pretty dull there and now we’re gonna hone it up a bit. I, don’t know when the last thing this was sharpened. It’s been sitting in a drawer for a couple years of it, so you’re pretty much just gonna set the butt of the blade in the the sharpener and pull through with, as they put it medium pressure about five times now.
I’m gonna go ahead and pull through it more than that, because this knife is pretty dull, so I say we go twelve through well, try it out before we use the hone. So this paper is pretty thick but yeah. It’s having no problem come through that yeah. So we give it two more passes and if you slide this thing to the left, it let’s just kind of wobble back and forth a little bit and that way you get a better hone on it. So, speaking of home, we’ll use the Hohner will give us five passes.
Yeah, let’s go six, so pretty much the same rules apply for it and that’s just to make the blade have a little bit of a finer edge on it. Like I said this is thicker paper than most of the paper you’ll be using, but yeah. Let’s get that nice and sharp, probably sharpen this knife has been in at least a decade, but uh I’d say you sharpen a pocketknife would be the pivot from work shirt. So this side here just diamond plated size, but this is gonna- be used for sharpening knives that are gonna require a little more material removal.
So if it’s really dull and it’s got been dinged up and whatnot, so essentially your camping knife, we’re hand tools and fish hooks, run it through this a few times and sharpened up that way, I’m not gonna demonstrate it, because it’s pretty easy just run out along this side like in a traditional grindstone and for fish hooks, you’re gonna use the center slit there, and then you got the lanyard hole there. So this, like I, said put your backpack put on your lanyard for hiking camping stuff like that right.
If you watched my machete video, you might remember, I said I hate, serrated, machetes and knives and that’s true I find the serrations to be absolutely useless, but one of the applications of the hone on this is you can sharpen the serrations by putting it on the nook you want and pushing down a couple times. Well, actually, I was doing that no you’re gonna want to do it on the side. That’s got the the indent on it. So, since the other side, I’m gonna be going on the left side, like so a few times and that’ll help sharpen your serrations I, wouldn’t expect too much out of this knife, because it’s a cheap little gas station knife I bought in Florida but uh yeah.
That’s how you sharp considerations- and this applies to both sharpeners. If that last sharpener was named. Throughly thing is the m4 Sherman and, as the instruction manual had foretold, that when black wings come unfurled, the wheel will turn upon the last knife. Sharpener you’ll ever need like I swear. This thing has got everything your traditional knife, sharpener here and honing edge same little wobbly thing on it on the bottom, for sharpening tools and for sharpening scissors here like and it’s, and it’s got this handy little design where you can pin it down on your workbench use it.
That way, like I legit mean this thing’s got it all so, essentially the same thing: buck 110 made it video on that. Go check that out we’re essentially just gonna. Do the same thing- and this thing is already a razor blade like I’ll, show you but um pull it through a few times. So this thing should be even more razor blade now yeah thanks pretty sure, but, like I said, it’s got that on it and I’ll show you this in a second and I’ll. Show you that too, okay, so yeah pick up this, and this little cover is going to be right here.
You’re gonna remove it and it was pretty tie. It took a little effort and a little Prime with a knife to get it to come loose. Then this is gonna, be popping out from in here you’re just gonna, pull it out and grab your scissors now I, don’t have any lawn chairs to show you, but you sharpen those by just putting them in the B and pull them through. However, on the scissors there’s a little nook on the left side of this thing and you’re gonna eyeball, let’s see on what side of the scissor blade the edge is, and once you figured that out, you’re gonna put the plastic up against the back of the scissors and pull through like so about five times.
It says on each side, but, however many times it’s gonna be necessary. These are pretty sharp, as is so there’s no point in me showing you the end result: you’re gonna want to put light pressure on this cuz, that’s a little more fragile but anyway. So that’s how you sharpen the scissors and when you’re wanting to put it back up, face upward slide. It in well I think cooped up apparently yeah. You slide it in like that. Then you take your cover and this might be a little harder to slide in to get out line.
Those two front pieces up push that down there. We go it’s like that see it fits nice and smooth in there, but that’s why it was harder to eat it up. Alright, so the diagram shows sharpening a axe. I, don’t have an accident I have a shovel, so we’re gonna sharpen a combat shovel made a video on this a while back. If you only go see that I’ll link it wherever I’ll link the last video I’m bit pretty much just like a traditional whetstone, you’re gonna pull these and across the stone on side, you’re supposed to pin it on the table, but it’s kind of hard for me to do, because this isn’t a table and the cameras in the way no water necessary.
That’s well, that’s good, and then, when you want to hone it up a little bit as much as you can home on an ax or a combat shovel use this little thing in the back and if you’re sharpening a larger knife, that’s gonna have a that’s, been dented up a lot and stuff you’re gonna want to use this first before you start using these pulling it up. So there’s pretty much two levels to that and that’s pretty dang, sharp and I, don’t think they have anything to hack through it inside but yeah.
That’s how you use the big grindstone on the back of it. Like I, said this thing encompasses pretty much any use, you’d need for a knife sharpener, it’s a all-around, handy guy, if less compact, but yeah I like it a lot I’ll make this short and sweet. Oh I love these things. This thing I’m off, throwing my camping bag and take with me on those types of expeditions. I guess. But you know it’s a great compact little knife sharpener and this guy’s going on the shed use him and there fix it up my tools and whatnot in the shed.
It’s you know not as compact, but it’s got a lot more abilities and it’s easier to use on the table and whatnot he’s pinned it down and the design is real. Smooth them are pretty sharp and whatnot and I’d say this one for what I? What the other is similar to this I’ve, seen on the market, I’d say, is probably a nine out of ten and act. This one’s a 10 out of 10 and yeah I love these things. These are bad to the bone backbone, but um I! Guess that’s about all I gotta say about that I, like the bank work sharp for sending these to me and let me review them and I hope this helps them out and I’ll be doing reviews on their Amazon or not, but uh.

Hi, I’m carl welcome back to my youtube channel. Let’s go over this pivot pro knife and tool sharpener from work. Sharp there you go down in the bottom, is number w s h, h, d, p, v, t sharpens knives tools: scissors abrasives are carbide, ceramic and diamond convex, carbides pivot response over here, handheld multi-purpose knife and tool sharpener for use on workbench countertop in the yard and in camp turn. This thing around. Okay, we’ll go over all this. Let me go ahead and take this thing out of the package.
I’m gonna try not to tear up the package. So let’s just do this. Do this got to get this thing out of here? I probably could have chose a better way of doing this. I didn’t want to rip this over here, so I’m just going to rip it on this side rip. This thing open, ah come on now. This thing doesn’t want to come out. Let’s see here as many knives I have around here. You think I have a knife: that’s suitable to cut this thing open, but here we go I’ll, get it out.
It is packaged pretty good. Isn’t it it is packaged pretty good? Well, almost there. I know everybody’s had one of those days right. Get rid of that thing here is the pivot pro bench top. What makes the pivot pro? You see right here, this red button. If you slide this button to the left there we go, it makes this this uh carbide- I don’t know I keep forgetting that word where it can pivot back and forth, taking more of a material off your plate at one time, if you slide it to the right that thing’s kind of hard to get to in there there we go slide it to the right.
It takes off less material. Then we have the ceramic rods over here on this side back here we have a scissors. Sharpener and right here is a axe. Um shovel hoe, just whatever yard yard tool sharpener so how’s. This thing work out, got a rock here, see my knife. How about that y’all saw me, pull that across the knife. The blade y’all saw me pull the blade across the knife. I can’t talk today. Can I so this is, on the left hand, side now to take out more material.
This is pretty comfortable to hold hear that grinding the more times I pull through the little better that sound gets there. We go getting better and better every time. Let’s go ten more times, one, two, three, four: five: six: seven, eight nine ten! Now, let’s go over here to the ceramic rods, one two, three, four, five, six, seven, eleven twelve thirteen 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 20, just think see how this thing cuts. I have just a regular sheet of copier paper here.
Is it going to cut because I prefer it to be a little bit sharper? Let’s get 10 more pulls on that ceramic 12, 13, 14 15 there we go definitely better a lot better, much better, much much better, better better. Anyway, you get the idea on this, so here we have a hatchet. You can use it right here if you like, or you could use it. This is for your scissors. You could use it right here. There’s a carbide in there. Let’s put this up like this, might be easier going.
This way got to find the right spot for it. Now that’s a little bit trickier than it looks try to follow that contour of the blade. Anyway, I’m sure you understand what I’m doing there pretty nice little tool. I like it somewhere around 10, 12 bucks, or so my opinion is worth the money. If you have one of these, let us know how you like yours. Let us know if you don’t like yours, good little thing to keep in your um overnight bag, your camping gear, whatever my name is carl.
I do appreciate watching.
The knife sharpener is a go anywhere sharpener you can restore an edge or put a new edge on any blade. Basically wherever you are, it also has a diamond plate on the side for sharpening tools, and it has a groove in there for sharpening fish hooks. The pivot plus knife sharpener is an easy-to-use go-anywhere sharpener. If you have any serrations and touch those up with the taper at Diamond rod.
The pivot pro gives you so much versatility when sharpening all of your tools from kitchen knives to hatchets. It can live on your workbench or your kitchen drawer. This thing is feature packed on the bottom. It has two dedicated carbides and then it has a large diamond plate with this big handle. So you can really get some leverage on sharpening things like a packet.
This gives you a complete solution to maintain your knife out in the field for both the sharpness of the edge and the safety and the maintenance of all the fasteners on it. But I real, like about angles set, is that is a complete solution in a very compact form. With the object, is you hold your knife in a vertical position all the time we adjust the machine around you, so you always do the same thing.
Hey I’m Josh with work sharp and new for 2020. We have our pivot series knife and tool. Sharpeners I’ll run through what makes these different he’s at a convex carbide. So, instead of it being a flattened shape, it actually is rounded up until the tip and then it gets really sharp. This only affects the knife at the very tip, removing less material and getting you sharp faster.
These get their name because of the pivot response, that’s built in to the sharpener. Sometimes when people use pivot, sharpeners or pull through sharpeners, they tip the sharpener to get a sharper rake angle. We built that into the tool so that it tilts automatically sharpening faster, more efficiently, lock out that carbide for a secondary, Torah finer grit, pull through again and finish on a ceramic pull through each of these sharp furnace has a diamond plate or a diamond rod of some sort, giving you added power and capability in the field.
So you can get the job done. The pivot plus features a tapered diamond rod for touching up serrations and the pivot. Pro is a handheld unit with a large diamond plate and get a lot of leverage on this and sharpen hatchets and axes or large fishing hooks for halibut or salmon. It’s the pivot series from work sharp.
We start at $4, $8 and $10 and they’re available in hunting and fishing stores on Amazon, and you can always find us at work. Sharp tools, calm.
Hi, I’m carl welcome back to my youtube channel. This short video, I’m going to try to keep this under seven or eight minutes, or so we’re going to look at this work. Sharp knife sharpener. This is the w s e d c, p, v p except pivot, plus knife sharpener. Okay, now I’m going to open up the back right here. I’ve already done this before and kind of ripped the instructions just a little bit so here it is, and I’m going to go over this with you.
I don’t expect you to read it: uh convex carbide, blades, ceramic home rods, tapered diamond rod, pivot response lock and the lanyard hole. Let’s go and open this thing up. I’ve got a knife here. I used on my previous sharpening demo that I did let’s go ahead and do what we can to open this thing up without ruining the package. I don’t plan on taking this back, but I’m trying to keep the package as good as possible.
Let’s go this way. Cutting away from myself. Of course, go cut this a little bit more right here. There we go here is the pivot plus work, sharp knife, sharpener, pretty nice, looking very lightweight, I’m going to close up this rod right here, got nice little places right here for your fingers to fit when you’re have it down on your table. Here is the ceramic rods and the collies. They call these the convex carbide, blades carbide and ceramic here’s.
The lanyard hole right here, and here is the serrated. Oh, I can’t get my finger up under there. Serrated rod, not serrated rod, diamond coated rod for your serrated knives, we’ll get back to this. Well, let me grab a serrated blade right here. Let’s do that! One! First! Okay, here we go. I’ve got two knives here with some serrated edges right here. This is one and this is another not sure the quality on these nice, but it doesn’t matter it’s just just for demonstration purposes.
Here we go now the serrated blades. You have your rod going to each individual and turn as you’re going along with the grind that will sharpen up your serrated edges with no problem doing each one take a while to do this, but it works and then, when you get done with that, just take the flat blade. Just do this all the way across okay, let’s get that out of the way I’ve got these three nights here and I bought at a yard sale.
I gave a dollar for all three of them. I’ve been using this one previous demos, I’m going to put this one aside: let’s use the mid middle size. One right here, get this big one. Let’s put it aside and check this out got a big old piece of granite right here. Got this knife here! Listen to this, so you can see me actually doing it. So there’s no trickery, yep, that’s dull! Now what we’re going to do is fold this back up we’re going to take this.
I don’t everyday yard cell knife. I don’t know what kind of steel it is doesn’t really matter to me because I don’t know: what’s a good steel and a badge still, I just know what what I like, what I don’t like: okay on this pivot, plus, you see this red button right here, on top it slides to the right and to the left this way and back this way, whoops there we go pretty tight on there. What that does is, if let me make sure I’m reading this right, if you’re holding it this way and slide this red button to the left, activate pivot response.
This allows the convex carbide mechanism to follow the curve of the blade and increased material removal for heavy sharpening slide the button to the right. This will reduce the material take off and is better suited for lighter sharpening applications. So, since I ran this over a rock I’m going to leave it to the left or take out more I’ll go now, you’ll see this knife right here does not go all the way to the end of the blade in here due to the waste the stalin.
The way it’s made you see right here was not does not go all the way to the to the blades one. Two. You hear the sound of that three. It sound like a file going over some steel, four five, six 8 9 10. Now I don’t know if you can see it on the camera, but I see little pieces of metal in this old dirty towel here. Yep and I did. I can’t feel where it made a difference. So right now, I’m going to slide this little red lock to the right, take out less metal, three, four, five, six! Now I’m when I’m pulling this out when I’m getting closer to the end, I’m pulling up on the blade to follow the contour.
Let’s get this, let’s give this four more times one two three four now remember: I did run this across that piece of rock okay. Let’s go over this ceramic rods right now, one two, three four: five: six: seven: eight 9 10 11 12, 13, 14 15. Let’s see how sharp it is now got a just a regular piece of copy paper. It is cutting. It is definitely cutting. So let me run this few a few more times here, one two, three, four: five: six: seven, eight: nine, ten.
Okay! Let’s try this again, definitely better, definitely better getting better. Every time, let’s go 10 more times see what happens. One two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight nine ten yeah, it’s better still, not quite as good as I want it to be, but it is a lot better than when I first started. So to sum this thing up, this was under ten dollars. I bought it from amazon or ebay. I don’t remember which one now under 10 nice little addition to your toe box, your glove box, your tackle box, whatever you want to put it in! I don’t think you can go wrong with this.
If you have one of these, why don’t you tell us how you like yours, appreciate if you leave some kind of comment below and um hit the bell you’ll be notified when I upload more videos, thanks for watching you.
Outdoors and this video I wanted to do a quick video on the work sharp pivot Pro. This is a sharpening system that work sharp came out with just before blade show west of 2019 and they sent me home with a brand new unit. So I could test out. So this video I’m going to test out some of the different features and let you guys know if it’s actually worth the $10 MSRP. This sharper has two main pull through sharpeners: a carbide, convex sharpener with the pivot function and also a ceramic hone, there’s a large pull through sharper on the bottom and this one’s made four axes.
The angle on it’s gonna be a lot steeper, so it’s going to be better for chopping, wood and things like that on the bottom of the sharpener there’s a large medium, /, coarse diamond surface. This is really good for taking out some of the flat spots and it’s also good for large blades, like machetes, there’s, an apartment in the handle which throws away a tool for sharpening pruners scissors and shears. The first knife we’re gonna tackle is a little blade tech nice.
This one has a little bit of a flat spot in the blade and the blade is made out of s30v to get the flat spot out. We’ll just start on the diamond surface, then we’ll pull through with the carbide sharpener there’s a little red switch that is towards the handle when the switches towards the handle. That means that the pivot is free-flowing and you can get a more aggressive cut towards the cutter and it locks it in place. The pivot gives the blades a little bit more of an aggressive cut because it angles the carbide edges towards the blade locking it down.
You have sort of an in-between between super aggressive and the fine honed that you have for the next step. The large diamond surface works really well for machetes, and it really cuts fast. I can imagine someone using this on a lawnmower blade. The scissors sharpener has a carbide sharper on one edge and, on the other side, is a softer metal with a rounded surface and this axe more of a guide than a sharpener. They really thought it through when they designed the sharpeners further the scissors, because the handle is skeletonized which allows you to access the whole cutting surface at the right angle.
My fine axes have a shallower angle than what this cutter is designed for, but the tomahawk works pretty well for this. We’re just gonna treat the edge a little bit from all the abuse it takes, so that is it for the work, sharp pivot Pro. This thing is pretty cool, and you know for me: I would say it is worth the $10 MSRP. Obviously you’re not going to use this for really high-end knives, because most people that have high and knives prefer a standard sharpening versus a pull-through which can give you less than perfect edges, but I think for the use of the cabinet, where I’m going to keep this or at a workshop right on the bench, where you’re going to be sharpening a lot of tools.
I think this thing is pretty badass.

Today, I want to find out if the new work designed for your everyday carry sharpening system and knife maintenance needs. Well, that’s right, folks, welcome back to another video here at Gideon’s tactical thanks for joining me today and I’m, looking forward to having some fun with you to check out this little micro sharpener from work sharp. Now, if you’ve been following a channel for any length of time, you know that one of my favorite ways to maintain my edge tools are with work.
Sharp products I have purchased so many of them over the years. I have their belt sharpeners for my larger tools or for reprofiling needs and then I have their more compact filled sharpeners for my survival kits that I use a lot and they bring a great value to performance level. Well, they’ve recently come out with a new additions to their budget-friendly options for sharpeners and I picked up this micro sharpener, and it really intrigued me because not only was it rather inexpensive, it’s really compact.
It has a diamond and ceramic rod, but then it also has these torque bits to help maintain and work on your knife. So today, we’re gonna break down the system to show you what it has to offer we’re gonna resharpen one of my pocket knives work on it with the torque bits and just talk about whether or not this is. This is a perfect addition to any sort of EDC system.
When you want to be able to maintain, particularly focusing in on your pocket, knives or multi tools, so Before we jump into the functionality of this, and how is the sharpen? How does it you know, work on your tools and those type of things we’ll just give you some really quick dimensions. It’s gonna weigh 1 46 ounces, so this thing weighs next to nothing.
It has a maximum thickness of 0 3 9. So nice and slims got that little lanyard hole comes with that little lanyard. We need to put carabiners through there paracord, whatever you would like to lash and attach two different things, so you don’t lose it and then it’s two inches wide 2 25 inches high, so I mean this thing is really compact, really small me.
It just fits in the palm of your hand, so the sharpeners themselves. We have a diamond stone, that’s about an inch and a quarter long, and then we have a ceramic rod. That’s about an inch and a quarter long now, I’m going to start out with a damaged bushranger light right here from cold steel, I rubbed it on the concrete just a moment ago, to give it a pretty gnarly jacked-up.
As you can see there, whoa yeah, not good, not a good edge. I, don’t know how! Well you guys can see that there it’s got a couple. Burs couple rolls because I scraped it on the concrete, so we’re obviously gonna start on the diamond stone work. Sharp recommends ten passes, I like to do it this way, one at a time, instead of like five on one and then five on the other again trying to do the best I can keeping this all in frame and everything else.
It’s you guys. It does have a guide. These little ramps here, they’re angled, according to the website at 25 degrees, is what I was reading so I, don’t really use them, I, just kind of eyeball it. This is about a three and a three point. Three inch overall blade, eight CR, 13 MOV, so an easy steel to work with that’s why I’m doing it on film with you, I have used this once or twice with other blades as well, a more premium material and I, normally I.
Don’t let it get this bad where it would be. You know having these chips and rolls unless I was like just totally thump innominate, so I usually just be using the ceramic rub: it’s nice that has this diamond stone! It’s pretty easy to manipulate! It’s gonna! Be careful! You know you don’t want to slice your thumb or something like that. So just do it slow, be safe and conscientious.
It is nice that they have these little cut ends with the jimp just kind of give you some extra texture and grip. Now about a three and a half to four inch. Knife is about max that I would would say that this small, a ceramic or stone you know or diamond stone, could handle I would not be. You know trying to do my machete. You know with this or something like that and a pinch.
Obviously, you can do it with almost anything, but it’s more conducive to pocket, knives or and or small fixed blades ooh nice I’m pretty happy with that. Let’s see what happens. Oh yeah, nice much better. That was just with basically two passes. What I normally don’t do paper test? Cuz I, don’t like doing paper test, but in this guide you go by touch, but you guys can see they’re nice.
So it’s absolutely doable to tune up. You know blades, particularly if you’re using the ceramic gratin. In a pinch, you can use the diamond stone to take out a burr, a little chip. So one of the things that sets this apart from just being a normal sharpener is the fact that it does have some torque heads in there to be able to adjust a lot of your pocket knives.
Now it has a t6, t8 and t10 Torx screw, so those are mounted inside this little polymer sleeve. That kind of rests right in here. It’s just pretty! Well in there you just pop it out pick the one you need we’re gonna adjust this pocket clip here, real quick. So that is the t6 I believe yep t6, then there’s a little magnetized mount right there. You can see the magnet right in there.
You drop your bid in just like that. Sits nice. There, you have it, so this makes it very easy to realign maybe pivots that have gone on on the linemen kind of wacky to tighten up your pocket, clip that some, maybe over time, gets loose or readjust, swap the pocket clip for a friend. You know they’re a lefty or something and they don’t have a Torx bit on hand.
This makes it very easy to do and it makes this a maintenance kit for your pocket knives, not just a sharpener, which is a really cool plus for the price to the size and footprint and weight. That’s offering so I will touch on price here with you, ten bucks, it’s kind of a no-brainer for what you’re getting the ceramic, the diamond, the Torx I mean the Torx is set alone, is about like eight bucks.
If you go somewhere and then, if you try to get ceramic rods or diamond rods, I mean it just makes a lot of sense. So I will links for you. Guys I bought this over bleach cue for that ten Amazon blade HQ gpknives. We appreciate when you purchase your gear purchasing decisions with the hyperlinks that we offer to you as well as over, to knock around sunglass company 511 tactical mystery ranch, all the stuff, that’s out there that we have in the description below and those hyperlinks.
We really appreciate it and I want to give a shout out to our paypal supporters as well. Those of you support through PayPal. You are amazing. You helped me buy gear just like this, so even that five ten dollars a month or whatever you know as easy for you can help me, continue to make content, buy gear and do videos just like this. Well, there you have it folks I got to tell you for me: it has become a perfect addition to my everyday carry system.
If you recently were watching the channel, we did an update on my EDC pouch. That goes with me in either my messenger bag. My backpack, when I’m going around town whatever and I, was using their mini sharpener I. Believe it’s what our pocket sharpener there I was using there $15 pocket sharpener, which is decent but still got a pretty big footprint.
Some of you guys suggested this I went over picked it up and it now is going in the pouch, throwing it right there on the lanyard with the house key and it’s gonna take up way less of a footprint, basically for the tools I’m using drugs. If it’s the pocket knife in here, the Swiss Army knife ordered my other pocket knives, I’m easy seen for the day.
It’s gonna be able to maintain any of those plus the added bonus of the Torx screws that I did not have or spork drivers, but I did not have in the system before so. It basically just became a two-in-one addition to my EDC pouch. So that’s the value level that I see in it. I hope that you guys have been able to see whether or not this will bring value to you.
If it’s better, just to stick with the bigger $30 filled, sharpener I love that thing that’s in many of my bigger you know like camping and outdoor kits or if this really fits a niche. I want to hear from you guys what do you think about this micro sharpener and whether or not it’s something that you’re looking forward to and what type of experience you’ve had with it if you’re a current owner of that product so guys? Thank you.
So much for checking us out check out the other video popping up subscribe. If you’re, not a current subscriber check out, what’s going on over on Facebook and Instagram, throwing up there all the time and always remember, stay equip stay prepared and we’ll see out there.

Channel in this episode, we will be taking a look at the Smiths adjustable pull through knife sharpener. The folks who have been following my channel for a very long time know that I, like Smith’s sharpening products and one of the products that I really really like these little pocket, pals I’ve, even given away some for the most part they sharpen most knives, really really good I mean really good, but there is one inherent flaw in this particular design and it’s a flaw that exists with all pull through sharpener such as this pocket pal, and that is that the angle is not adjustable so for the pocket pal.
Just so you don’t have to look it up yourself. The angle is twenty. Two point, five degrees. So you know if you have a knife with a wider angle than that, it’s not going to sharp it in this, and maybe that’s why some people who use this say that the thing doesn’t sharpen at all and that might be because they’re they’re, you know putting in maybe a big K bar or something like that in there.
Where the the angle is, it needs to be wider, you know what I mean needs to be greater. So that’s the problem with this particular sharpener. Although I love, it I really do like this sharpener. So anyway, that’s where this guy comes in the big thing about this is there’s a dialog here and you could dial in anywhere between 14 and 24 degrees. You know so it it gives you that ability to switch between 14 16, 18, 20, 22 24 degrees.
It also could handle serrated edges right here in this middle one which doesn’t adjust, and then you have your course and you’re fine. So this is like a carbide, and this is ceramic rods, basically in there that you pull the knife through and those are what actually change the angle as you move this knob and well. Let’s stop talking about the packaging and we’ll go ahead and open this up and take a close look.
If you notice I have a different background here: I’m hoping that this keeps the camera from Dee focusing and refocusing all the time like. If, like some of my past, videos, which I I know, is very irritating so I’m hoping that fixes that anyway, getting back to the product here on the back which you couldn’t see while I was in the packaging, is a listing where it shows the common sharpening angle, so you have filet knives at 16% and Asian styled knives at 16%.
You have the euro and American style kitchen, either a 20% your pocket knives at 20% hunting knives at 22 tactical knives at 22. So they sort of give you a little cheat sheet. But if you want to you know properly sharpen whatever knife you’re, you know you’re ready to put through this. If you want it to be perfect, you should go to the manufacturers website of the knife and look up what the angle is now, if you want to change the angle, what you’re supposed to do is press down on this and then turn it.
So let me show you what the the angles look like as you’re turning it and go ahead and try to get I’ll go ahead and bring this one in and we’ll go ahead, and you can see that change see that and if you notice again, the serrated notch here does not adjust so for, let’s see tactical I think it said, 20 degrees right, hunting actually for tactical, says 22 I’m going to go with 20.
Now again, this thing does about 22 5, so we’ll go with 20 and I’m. Looking for a knife that needs sharpening so I’m going to bring out again my everyday carry die. My cold steel, American, lawman and I think I’ve run it through my pocket pal quite a few times. So I probably got it close to that 22. So we’ll go ahead and go with that now. If you notice there’s some arrows, you can see it right.
There arrow tells you which way you should be pulling it through. So I have nice rubberized handle here where you can hold it. It also has some rubberized feet on it, which keeps it pretty steady and we’ll just pull this through now. It says to do this about ten times so we’ll go ahead and follow the instructions and see how it goes. Whoo I could tell this feels terrible, and you know I use this knife at work and I’d, probably cut things.
I shouldn’t be cutting with a knife, a lot of steel, wiring Wow. It feels terrible you could get here. All the I musta took some serious pieces out of this blade. It might need more than ten, but what this this porch does is a basically straight south tech freakin edge, and then the ceramic ones will sort of polish that edge up. Okay, I wasn’t counting because I was too busy talking, but I’m.
Sure I did this at least ten times so now, I’ll go over to the ceramic and do the same thing probably about three or four times is what the instructions say starting to feel really nice. Now one other thing you should do while you’re using this is, you know you might in the carbide side, you start out, maybe giving it a little like a little bit of pressure and then, as you’re finishing it up so to try to lighten it up.
You know so start with it. You know a little pushing just a teeny little bit down while you pull it through and then sort of light it up where it’s just the weight of the knife. So you try to finish that up. Let’s see if I could shave with this or not I have I’m a hairy kind of guy, so I could I could do a lot of tests and you can see there’s hair on my knife now the stones and the carbide ceramic and the carbide you could replace these.
You could open this up. There’s like a slit right here that you could just pry open. We could go ahead and take a look while we’re here. Let me see if I could yep, let’s see, look there, we go nice good books and there goes the knob. So you can see what it looks like, so you could unscrew these covers and and change these stones if you’d like, if they start on not working anymore I’m kicking around this table like mad.
Oh sorry, you guys so go ahead and put this back on here, and this is sort of keyed. So you can’t put this on in the wrong way, so it was set at 22, which is correct, go ahead and continue sharpening this now. This knife would not push cut it all I’m, not sure. If he’ll push cut it now, you could definitely need some work. This knife has not been sharp in for a very long time. It’s it’s not quite push cutting it, so I’ll go ahead and continue actually I’m going to go back to the carbine I think it really does need a lot of work.
I might do about ten more times through here and as you you know, you want to try to sense the the shape of the blade you want to try to as you go in toward the tip with this particular one. I want to sort of tip down a little bit sort of like that. Let’s see so, this thing is really cheap. By the way. This thing only cost about twenty to thirty dollars. Right now, I notice, Midway USA, is selling this for twenty dollars, which is pretty amazing, considering what you get all right, pull it through here a couple times the nice thing about these pull through sharper is is it doesn’t require a lot of skill? A lot of the other sharp Attar’s, which you know will do better, also require the user of those sharpeners to develop some skills, usually holding the the angle correctly, and you have more motions that you need to do while you’re sharpening it.
So this sort of takes the the skill out of it just uh. You know for people that are not into knives so much, they just got what are two knives and they just need to keep them sharp and don’t want to get into the whole knife Hobby. This is you know a good option, so I’m getting hair off there, but not quite as good as I want I might go through here. Just couple more times, but you know this is not going to get it as sharp.
As you know, most other says: let’s talk about serrated knives, all right, here’s one of my key bars both both of these can do serrations and what you do is you just sort of pull it through, but we’ll go ahead and use the middle one here for the serrated edge and what you do. Is you just basically do the same motion you just sort of run it through just like that, and that sharpens up your serrations again doesn’t take much skill, just sort of do that and oh yeah they’re they’re pretty sharp, but it started out sharp, so I’ll.
Let you go ahead and just take a close look. There’s your knob again bottom has those rubber feet there you go well. I really put picked a bad example of a night to really show off this product because it was so bad. So I really want to make sure I’m pressing hard enough to begin with and then lighten up and make sure that this thing could end up push cutting through paper really good.
You know I I, cut wires, really thick wires. With this thing and network cabling, you know rj45 Ethernet, cat5e, actually I was cutting some shielded network cable, so that has even eat more metal in it. So I this knife really does get tortured. Alright, let’s make sure that we can do a nice cut there, and you can see it’s doing a very good job when you cut slow, like that, it’s very hard oops, alright.
So it’s doing good, let’s see if we’re shaving, yeah, alright. So now, I have no hair on my hand. Alright, so it does a good job. I’m, not going to say it does a a excellent or outstanding job. It does a good job. It’s not going to work as good as the rod systems and a person that has a lot a lot of skill with a stone or those those paper wheels that could really polish an edge when it gets you a very good edge.
You know that’s practical for outside that anybody could do, and you know- and it gives you the ability to change angle, so you can properly set the right angle on your knife and sharpen it instead of just be it stuck with one, which is an inherent problem with you know the other ones, so take a look at it. 20 bucks, if you get for 20 bucks, definitely worth it. I give this a 8 out of 10.
You know it’s not like super uber, you know quality, but it’s it’s pretty good and you know it doesn’t get a ten out of ten because it doesn’t, you don’t make a razor’s edge, but it does a very good job, so eight out of dead for twenty to thirty dollars. So thank you very much for joining me here at the gear obsession shadow I really appreciate every Fred viewer subscriber and you and I will see you Friday.

This is a quick walkthrough on the adjustable angle, Smith sharpener. What it does is. It has three different sharpeners in built in a course which is carbide edges. Then it’ll actually do a serrated, and when you you can sharpen a serrated blade, you sharpen the flat side or you use a little needle file and then find so this actually adjusts, and you can push that down and adjust it on the angles and you’ll see this little arm these little jaws move and all that it will adjust anywhere from 14 to 24 degrees, so in practice I’m right-handed.
So we’re going to do this and we’ll just drag it through drag it through serrated course. Now, we’ll suggest that to find out exactly where your sharpener is working, put a black line. Take a marker, put a black line right on the edge and find out where that sharpener is working. Take a look after a few after a few pulls there and find out where at sharpening you’re going to roll it around in the light, and you may have there may be some technique just like all sharpening there’s technique involved, they’re, not idiot proof.
So if I find that I’m actually not hitting the edge I’m getting up a little bit higher in the bevel, I’m going to just can’t that blade a little bit and put it in a different angle and sin, I can see there moved the sharpening down to the edge where I was hitting and write the middle of the bevel before so. This is the smiths adjustable angle, sharpener thanks where you’re going to put your stitches, it gives you a nice, even stitches, a measuring tape or a ruler yardstick that kind of thing and put little dots in there.
Smith adjustable angle, sharpener, pull-through sharpener, here it’s really designed in my mind what I would call a keep it simple, sharpener design be used by anyone without any real sharpening skills. Necessarily they try to make this as easy as possible, so anyone can use it to to get a blade sharp enough to to use the unique thing about this particular one is that the sharpening angle is adjustable and it adjusts anywhere from 14 to 24 degrees from a sharpening angle, and it goes every two.
So there’s not a Don here, there’s a setting for 14 16, 18, 20, 22 and 24. It has three different sharpeners on it. It has a coarse sharpener which is designed if your blade is dull and you need to reset the edge on it and then it also has a fine sharpener, which is a which is a carbide or I’m. Sorry, a ceramic sharpening stone that’s in there, and this is more of the finishing fine sharpener here to hone the blade itself.
It also does have a serrated fixed angle here. So if you have a serrated knife and need to sharpen it, the middle one is designed for that. The one thing I’d say about that one is it it does not adjust. That’s a fixed angle and typically from my experience on the Smith product, they usually recommend sharpening stuff at 23 degrees, so I’m.
If I was guessing. I would say that the serrated fixed angle is probably at 23 degrees there, but I Smith doesn’t list that, but as you adjust it it just, it adjusts the angle of both the course and the fine blade or the fine sharpening angle on the back of it. It has a list, some common sharpening angles for different types of knives, so filet knife kitchen knives pocket knives, hunting, knives tactical knives.
What common sharpening angles are flows if you want to get more precise in that in the packaging it gives you instructions on how to use it and then also gives you a list of the specific angle for different manufacturers, for example on here, but knives says it’s sharp they’re sharp netted in a degree of 13 to 16 Kershaw 20 to 22 Spyderco 20.
So it gives you a listing of different manufacturers for more precision. So what I’m gonna do here is this particular knife right here is a buck. Vantage knife right here: I’ve dulled, the blade by running it over a coarse stone and we’ll see if this thing is able to bring it back to life enough to be able to cut paper well, first, a demo of of where the sharpness is right now of the blade and then we’ll see if we see improvement in it so right now it is, it will not consistently, but it will cut paper right now.
What if you know, if you can see that or not, but you can see the edging there is very, very rough, so it’s almost a tear cut, that’s happening there, so the blade isn’t too. What I would consider sharp at this point, so we’ll go, get a quick try here and see if we can bring this blade back to life enough to be able to do a better job at cutting that paper sharpening up some.
So this this blade right here is a buck knife as I said and then and I sharpened it to 16 degrees. So it changed the angle on this to 16 degrees and we’d start with the with the coarse setting which they recommend 8 to 10 pulls through the course coarse stone the carbide stone there. If you move it forward into the into the notch there, you start with the heal the blade you slightly, pull it push it down or angle it down, and then you pull back on it and you run that through 8 to 10 times and as you’re doing that what should happen is you should start to feel it loosen up as you’re coming through there? It’s still coming through pretty tight right now, so there’s three four, six, eight nine! That’s still coming through pretty pretty tight as we’re pulling it through there, but we’ll we’ll do it according to instructions, and you can.
You can still fill some burr on that knife. So so, then, then it would recommend moving to the fine, the fine after eight to ten, and let’s give that a ten pull through on that one again always heel to toe, never our heel to tip on it. Never never going this direction always pulling it back and they haven’t. They do have arrows on the top here too, to make it pretty simple from an instruction standpoint on what direction you want to pull it.
You know, get a couple more pulls here and we’ll see what it does. Okay, let’s give the give the knife to try here and test it after we’ve used the the Smith adjustable angle sharpener. Here we are getting some cut of paper. There means me I always say that I’m not overly impressed I mean this is uh it. It might be a little bit better, but I.
Don’t I, don’t think it’s not nearly that! Well there we go so you can see still I mean this blade is not is not what it should be with this sharpener, so I can’t say: I’m overly impressed with this okay. Some final thoughts on the Smith adjustable angle. Sharpener here, as you can see from the before and after it did really little to improve the sharpness of the blade I was I, was unimpressed with with the product and I can’t recommend the product.
You know for twenty-five dollars, which I think these sell for about twenty-five bucks, and it’s obviously marketed to someone that doesn’t want to have to give it much thought for sharpening wants to be able to quickly sharpen their knives without much necessarily specific, sharpening skills. If I was gonna, recommend something I would recommend the Smith try home stone, sharpener it’s about the same price, so I would recommend this over the over the adjustable angle sharpener, whereas this one right here actually will sharpen your knives and I have a video on this that you can take a look at.
It takes a little more training, more skill, a little more time, but your the results are dramatically different. So I, like I, can’t recommend the adjustable sharpener. What I would say is that you’re you’re better off spending your money on on some sharpening stone, something like the tri own and and just giving some practice.
Some final final other couple things if you have found this video helpful, give it a thumbs up if you’d like to see more content like this hit the subscribe button. Thank you.
Hi guys jason here, two old guys with today we are doing a review on the smith’s pull through adjustable knife, sharpening system, foreign hi, guys jason here, two old guys with crossbows. Today we are doing a review on the smith’s pull through adjustable knife sharpening system, it’s uh, something greg and I picked up this year.
I don’t know if you’re like us, but you know we all have an assortment of knives. We all have a little folder like this. We all have filling knives. We all have hunting knives. You probably have a kit like this for dealing with your deer. They all need to be sharpened at different angles. This system allows you to adjust the angle, the core sharpener and the ceramic finisher I’ll, adjust the angle on those the center one is fixed.
It’s for uh, serrated edges. I tried my tree saw on it and actually seems to work anyway. So we’re gonna talk about this for a bit side of the sharpener has the common angles for most knives that you’ll run across, but you can also go to smithproducts com, and it will give you the proper angle for sharpening. Then all you do is set the dial to the angle, the dryer and start sharpening your knives by pulling it through in the direction indicated on the top of the sharpener.
You hold the sharpener with this side. Facing you your hand, the grip make sure your correct angle is in line with the adjust angle mark on this side of the sharpener, and then you run your knife through first the coarse slot and then the sl fine slot, and to tell how a knife needs to move from slot to slot. Is it no longer grabs so, if you’re pulling through the core slot- and it stops grabbing it’s time to move on to the fine slot? Sometimes you just have to go back to the fine slot after you’ve sharpened your knife.
You can watch as the course and the fine as you turn the dial, the chorus and the fine move to the correct angle for the knife. Bye.
All right everybody so today, I’m doing a that. I bought on eBay I thought that this would be a good sharpener because it says the description says: Smith’s abrasives, so I thought this was some sort of sharpening stone that you could adjust the angle here by turning this knob. That’s a pretty cool feature that it has that you can set the blade angles or whatever you like make sure you get the proper angle while sharpening it says it does coarse, serrated and fine, although I’m not exactly sure how its serrated it’s supposed to work.
It’s supposed to operate by you set the angle, take the blade and draw it through like this now I thought it would be good because I thought that a used sharpening stones. However, when I got it I, don’t know if you can kind of see the teeth right in here or how well the camera is focusing on that. Let’s see if I can zoom in and maybe get a better view of that, so you can see what I’m talking about trying to readjust the focus get that to work.
Yes, adjusted there, okay, so the way it actually sharpens, then, is, as you draw the blade through here, it kind of scratches the surface of the blade off, which I kind of do not like you can see here. You see if I get that right where it’s focused. If you look along the edge of the blade you can see where it’s kind of not nice and smooth where it is sharpened it you know there we go, I can kind of see it there.
You see what I mean so I, don’t really like the way it does that another thing I don’t like is since this is kind of offset. This actually begins sharpening on the left side right there at that point on the right side. At that point, so you’re going to start sharpening on the right side before you start sharpening on the left side and as you can see on the blade here, I previously sharpen this knife on this.
By the way you can see it starts sharpening right about there on this side, but on the other side it doesn’t start sharpening right away. It sharpens. You know a few millimeters down the blade and that might be okay, that might be acceptable for a kitchen knife, but I just don’t like it so I’m going to actually return this and get a different sharpening system. I think I’m gonna go with that Lansky sharpening system.
This seems to be a quick and easy way to sharpen the knives, and if you really don’t care about what I was just talking about, you know the little almost serrations it looks like on the blade. If that doesn’t bother you and the fact that it has, that offset, doesn’t bother you then this might be a really good sharpener for you to keep around because you’ll just set the blade angle, really good with the course and then kind of holding in with the fine.
This is a ceramic sharpening system over there. To kind of you know smooth that out a little bit more but I don’t like the way of sharpening so I’m going to return it, but before I did I wanted to make a review on it I’ll, let other people know what I thought of it. So, thank you for watching make sure you check out my channel subscribe hit the like button as well and I’m gonna continue to make videos like this.
This is Russ with Smith’s knife sharpeners. Today, I will talk to you sharpeners. If you have lots of knives sharpen all different styles, whether it be a kitchen knife, honey knife pocket knife, you want to sharpen all those knives quickly, but you want to get factory results. These are the products to use. Let me show you how easy it is to sharpen a knife with these diamond electric sharpener.
Let me quickly demonstrate for you how to use our diamond electric knife sharpener. One thing you notice about dime alleged knife strummers is that these sharpener sharping one side of the blade at a time. One thing to note is when you’re you’re sharpening one side up at a time, it’s important to do an equal number of strokes on both sides of the blade.
The first thing you need to determine whenever using the diamond electric sharpener is how dull your knife blade is if your black blade is extremely dull or maybe has a slight nick in the cutting edge, you want to start on the coarse diamond wheel. If you’re not plate is somewhat dull but still has a consistent cutting edge.
All the way down the length of the blade you can start on the fine diamond wheel, but no matter which way you start on. You need to finish up on the cross ceramic stones in the middle. To sharpen your knife blade. You want to turn the power to the unit on then you want to select the appropriate diamond that you want to use and start the knife blade into this this slot.
You want to keep it in the center of the slot, then lower the heel of the blade down until you hear the grinding noise once you hear, the grinding noise start to pull through this sharpening slot like so when sharpening a blade that curves up to the tip make sure you roll your wrist at the end to sharpen all the way out to the tip of the blade.
As you see, I went from the course diamond wheel to the find I’m wheel now I’m going to finish my edge on the cross ceramic stones. Normally you can sharpen a knife blade with two to three strokes on both sides on both sets of wheels, but knives made of extremely hard. Steel may require you to sharpen the knife blade ten times or more on each side of the blade.
Let me show you how to use the diamond edge mm. The first thing you want to determine when using the diamond mm is: how does your knife bleed? If your blade is extremely dull? You may have to pull it through the the diamond sharpening wheel several several times on both sides to get it to set the edge and get it sharp after you pull the knife through the diamond wheels on both sides.
You want to finish off your edge through the cross ceramic stones in the fine sharpening slot. One key to note, when sharpening with this type of sharpener, that sharpens one side of the blade at a time is to make sure you do an equal number of pools on both sides of the blade to sharpen your knife. You want to turn the power to the product on insert your knife blade into the sharpening slot lower the heel of the blade down until you hear the grinding noise and then pull the nice through at a consistent speed, they’ll have to press down a lot.
It doesn’t take a lot of pressure. Just let the wheel do the work. If your knife, curves up to the tip, make sure you roll it, lift your wrist at the end to sharpen all the way out to the edge of the blade. Normally, you can put your constructing a a stainless steel knife with three or four strokes on both sides of the blade and fish it up on the cross.
Running stones, but knives made of extremely hard. Steel may require ten or more pools on both sides, of the blade to get the edge. Sharp I, don’t know about you, but all my knives are sharp thanks to Smith’s. Sharpening products. See you next time.
Here reason why I’m here is for this guy here is Smith’s pocket pal knife sharpener. This is a really essential tool to everywhere. You go if you carry a night, I’ll be pitching a 10 here. In a few minutes, I felt like this was a really cool opportunity to do a gear reviews. Knife sharpeners, really awesome. It’s portable I keep one in my glove box. I keep one in my easy bag anywhere. I go you’re, not likely to find one on one of these assault, we’re pretty close and a piece of paper here.
So I’m cutting stakes for my puck tack. This knife is really dull. It will not penetrate or cut this paper I’m using a lot of downward force and while trying to share this paper, I finally was able to break through, on a paper son like to get into a quick demonstration on how to use this portable knife. Sharpener I’ll show you that once I put the edge back on a knight at this point, I’m just gonna demonstrate using this tool. This is a three-in-one sharpener. You have a car, buy. You have a ceramic.
If you have a serrated blade like this, you have this diamond right for sharpening your serrations earlier I tried to cut a piece of paper with this blade. I’ve been using this to cut up tent stakes for a pup. Tent displayed is extremely dull, so let’s get a nice edge back on his blade. Gonna use the fine portion of the sharpener in the way you use it. Is you place your knife in at an angle, tip down and you just ride it along to sharpener to get your edge back on there and what I’d like to do is I’d like to make about six to eight passes, to get that nice sharp edge back on the knife again, I am using a fine portion of the sharpener, and it’s fine portion is just to get an edge back on your blade.
If you were using a coarse portion, this is for a damaged blade or extremely dull knife. You take and I use the coarse portion. If you were to break one of your serrations like you dropped it on a curve and it broke a portion of the blade. Then you use the coarse portion of the sharpener to put an edge back on this blade and reshape the blade. Essentially, so, let’s make a few more passes to get the edge back on this knife. Let me demonstrate how to use this diamond coat at raw. You take the diamond coated.
Rod hold it at about a 45 degree angle and, as you push it down the serration, you rotate it on your blade. This is how you get that nice edge back on your serration. You just repeat this I’d say about three to four strokes per serrations. Typically I’ll be Fox with tanto style, a wood serrations for my Wharf knives, because it’s a great utilitarian type of knife to own. You could use the type of Horsham of this blade for self-defense and you could use the serrated edge for making deep cuts in a working environment.
I just put that edge on here. Let’s test it out on some paper now see if I could cut this paper, no problem whatsoever you guys saw earlier I- was not able to make these types of cuts using this knife 9 to 15 dollars. It’s more of a practical, everyday price that you should be able to find this knife sharpener, for this is a really great filler gift to throw in a gift bag. You know somebody have a birthday if it’s a holiday, it’s a great, really inexpensive item to give the night lover in your life great to keep in a glove keeping an EDC bag, keeping a center console of your car.
If you carry a knife, this is a must-have item, it’s portable, it’s inexpensive and it works, but it’s review on a Smith’s pocket knife. This is a really awesome piece of gear. I’m gonna, give it two thumbs up, really great, buy, really inexpensive, very portable, and it’s just great for all knife lovers in your life, your military, the ninth enthusiast: it doesn’t matter, it’s really awesome easy to throw in a center console glove box. Edc back and closing I’ll forget to thank your local first responders, who that multi-well it now and your local military personnel don’t settle to American heroes.
It’s the better, no problem whatsoever.
Okay, guys today we are reviewing this thing right here: the Smith compact electric knife, sharpener for straight edge knives. So let’s see how this sharpens. So it’s a good idea read on my the safety instructions when you turn this on. If you have long, hair I don’t have long hair, but if somebody that has long hair, you don’t want your hair going in there and if you have asthma, I would think that if you have asked my this produces a lot of a lot of dust.
So if anybody with a risk respiratory disease, maybe stay away from this or even wear a mask, so here’s the knife, so it’s hard to show on a video with the knife is sharp, but it is, it does have a final. It does have a final or like a touch-up I. Would like fine. You do this. You do this with both hands. You have to hold this so I’m, holding the camera on the phone.
I should say for point of my hand, but this is what you would be doing later. Okay, so this is how it looks like in the inside I taken this off when you look at it from here. This is what you have. So, if you look at those gears right there, it’s plastic and it just feels cheap I mean my goodness. This probably won’t last or last forever.
It just doesn’t feel something doesn’t feel right. So this is the wheel that spins around when you put a knife here or here it’ll sharpen the knife, then I’m impressive, how bad this looks from inside I’m just impressed I would have expected some metal metal tears right here, but nope. So when you pay twenty bucks for something, this is what you get.
This is all loose. Look at those thin wires, I’m just not impressed, although it does work I’m, just not impressed okay guys. So we are in the garage right now and we’re gonna turn it on and see what happens here. So let me turn it on well, if you can see it, spins counterclockwise so it’ll be counterclockwise if you’re looking at it from this angle.
So that means that when you have it in the normal, the normal way, which would be me one second, the normal way would be like this. You would be facing this way. So remember it’s spinning in that direction. So you put the knife in here and it’s going against the sharpness of the knife, so that’s kind of a weird way in a counterintuitive way of sharpening a knife, but I guess the reason why they do it.
That way is because if you have it spin in the other way- and you put a knife there, you risk jamming it because it’ll try to pull down the knife and it’ll just jam and lock. So they don’t want that to happen, because if that happens, you have this plastic gears over there over here, which will just shatter or probably just shatter.
So now, let’s do a test. Let’s see if I can sharpen it directly like this, so let’s turn it on okay, so it does sharpen. Unfortunately, I can’t go further, because we have this wheel of plastic wheel right here, but you do if I touch it, it definitely feels sharp. Well, that’s a good thing, but it’s when you sharpen it, you don’t open it directly like that.
It’s more of at an angle and I had an awkward angle, but it does the job and that’s a good thing, alright, guys so another possible use that you might have. You might find this handy for this electric sharpener, as opposed to a stone, is that if you have a machete like this one or a sword or any other long blade, very long blade that needs to be sharpened.
You’ll find and I know this from experience that this is impractical, so a lot of work to sharpen a long blade like a sword or machete using a stone like this, so you’d be better off with this. Let me put this to the test and see what happens. I have not done this before with this, so I’m gonna find out. If this actually does the job or I should just go back to this.
So let’s see I’m going to turn off the camera, because this is a two-handed operation, so I can’t be holding the camera, but we’ll see the results. Okay, so I just finished attempting to sharpened this machete with this electric sharpener and it did not go well at all. So I guess I stand corrected. You cannot use this for this.
It started shaking and bouncing, and it was doing this. You know I. Don’t know why this works very well with knives kitchen knives, but this did not go well. I tried to do just sharpening half of it. I don’t know if you can see that half of it is sharpen and the other half is not so while it did do the job this, the feeling that I got the feeling that I got is that it’s not it’s not powerful enough for this kind of blade and the other feeling that I had was that it was I, was wearing wearing it out real fast.
So I, don’t know what to do about this. I do have a tool right here and I do have those and a little this I do have these tools that you can use for the machete, but unfortunately this does not work for larger blades. It’ll you’ll damage it. If you try to do this, you try to do the big big, build heavy blades like this, with this you’re just gonna end up damaging it.
So don’t buy this for anything other than a small blades like kitchen knives, even larger, because I tried I tried the larger kitchen knife. Everything works well as far as the kitchen, but as far as any other bigger blades, it does not work. It just didn’t work. So I was surprised. I thought it would be very helpful and it’s not alright guys so we’re in the garage.
As you know, my knife sharpener, let us down as far as machete. Well. Well, you can say it’s not a machete sharpener, it’s just a knife sharpener. So for this big blade, I have a solution at least I think so. I bought this thing right here. The gator blade and it says, for a metal cutting I bought an adaptor and I already had this with me.
So we’re gonna see if we can do this, connect these two to sharpen this and sure enough. It does work.
Hi I’m Karl welcome back to my youtube over the Smiths sharpening system. Here, it’s adjustable angle, pull through knife. Sharpener I purchased this at Lowe’s. There are several different styles of Smith’s. Sharpener is on the market and for to understand they’ve been in business since the 1880s. So let’s go over this one type of sharpener and I do appreciate being with us today: hey here’s, the Smiths sharpener, here’s a closer up view of it see if I can get this into the camera.
Here’s this top to bottom. Here’s, the back of the carton, isn’t a nice blister pack! I did purchase this from Lowe’s and it’s roughly $26 or so so. Let’s go ahead and open this up. I’m gonna pause the camera for a minute. Gonna. Take my razor knife and open this up and I’ll be right back here. It is I. Have this knife sharpener opened up and I’ll, give you a little closer look to this thing. There we go and then I’m gonna back off a little bit and go into a little bit more detail.
Nice plastic wrapper grip, handle it’s got two rubber feet on the bottom. People sliding on your service, such as this feels pretty nice in the hand on the back right here. It has a suggested guide for your knifes filet nice 16 degrees, kitchen, knives, 16 degrees, kitchen, knifes, American and European 20 degrees, pocket, knives, 20 degrees, honey, nice, 22 degrees, tactical knives, 22 degrees. Here we go yeah a little closer up on this right here there we go, get that to focus in now.
Of course, just like anything else, those are just suggested degrees in life. You know personal preferences, what you should go with okay on the top right here we have this little angle. Adjustment right here, you just simply push down and turn push down very slightly on here turn this you know, go to different degrees and if you notice, as you turn this these cities right here, these open up or closed depending on what degrees you want to go with pretty cool. Now the middle one is for serrated knives.
This one does not adjust, but just these two on the ends that adjust course fine and it has the arrows for the pull direction of the knife. So if I’m left-handed well, if I’m going to use my hold it down my left hand and pulling knife on the right hand, it’s gonna be pulling this way following the arrow, so pretty basic, pretty self-explanatory. So, according to this guide on the back, I’m gonna use a kitchen knife, 20 degrees, just that 20 degrees. You can see the little arrow right here, 20 degrees on my table and I have this knife right here, yes, fairly, dull, what you I’m gonna do is I’m just going to hold this steady and pull back like this, but before I.
Do that? Also with this kit is a little can’t really call it a booklet, it just call it a sheet that opens up there. We go and it has some suggested goodnights and the angle that you want to cut it with pretty self-explanatory. Here’s the general instructions on how to use this pretty simple. So let’s go and get started on this very easy. Now, if you know anything about knives which most people do but I gotta go over this to get a good edge. You have to have a consistent angle that you’re holding this book knife now with this knife sharpener, you can see how you cannot always have a consistent angle, so try to get this as close to 90 degrees, as you can and don’t really push hard on this.
Just pull back now. What’s rough about this is the curve as you’re pulling back hitting towards the end. You’re gonna have to tilt the knife up to follow the curve. Let me see if I can do this sideways hold this up, try to keep it at 90 degrees, pull it back and as you get closer to the curve you gonna have to tilt it up this way to follow the curve. Let’s do that a few times instructions say: do this eight or ten times you see how it sounds kind of kind of rough. It sounds rough, so, the more you do, this, the better it will be sounding.
You can already tell a difference now. This is far from an expensive kitchen knife. This knife is made by Yorktown made in Brazil. There goes and name on there if we can get it to focus in there we go. So it’s a pretty decent knife, not a great enough, but it’s a decent knife. It is getting a little smoother there. We go. Do this a couple of times there we go not too bad. I can tell a slight difference. See this a few more times. Okay, let’s go over to the course right here see. What’s up with this, okay I can feel a little bit sharper of an edge than what I had before it needs to be gone through a lot longer, but we’ll work on that after little videos over now.
You see these stones in here see this one right here on there. You can take this cover off just pop off your screwdriver and get your screwdriver, and you can take apart these and when these stones get wore out, you could put more in there buy them from Smith’s. You like this. A basic introduction to this knife, sharpener do I think is great, no I, don’t think it’s great. That thing is good borderline good, but it’s with my opinion. This is better than nothing if you need to do a little quick edge on the knife, not great, but it will work, but you have to do a lot of strokes with it.
So what I suggest you buy this? If you need something real, quick, but not very accurate, $26 I think you can find something better, but I don’t think you can find anything easier. Would I give this for a gift to somebody? No I, don’t think so. Anyway, this Carl, if you like, go to Lowe’s or wherever Smiths sells these nice sharpers check them out, make an educated decision on your own. If you buy one- and let me know now, I’d like to know how what do you think about it, thanks for watching.

Here reason why I’m here is for this guy here is Smith’s pocket pal knife sharpener. This is a really essential tool to everywhere. You go if you carry a night, I’ll be pitching a 10 here. In a few minutes, I felt like this was a really cool opportunity to do a gear reviews. Knife sharpeners, really awesome. It’s portable I keep one in my glove box.
I keep one in my easy bag anywhere. I go you’re, not likely to find one on one of these assault, we’re pretty close and a piece of paper here. So I’m cutting stakes for my puck tack. This knife is really dull. It will not penetrate or cut this paper I’m using a lot of downward force and while trying to share this paper, I finally was able to break through, on a paper son like to get into a quick demonstration on how to use this portable knife.
Sharpener I’ll show you that once I put the edge back on a knight at this point, I’m just gonna demonstrate using this tool. This is a three-in-one sharpener. You have a car, buy. You have a ceramic. If you have a serrated blade like this, you have this diamond right for sharpening your serrations earlier I tried to cut a piece of paper with this blade.
I’ve been using this to cut up tent stakes for a pup. Tent displayed is extremely dull, so let’s get a nice edge back on his blade. Gonna use the fine portion of the sharpener in the way you use it. Is you place your knife in at an angle, tip down and you just ride it along to sharpener to get your edge back on there and what I’d like to do is I’d like to make about six to eight passes, to get that nice sharp edge back on the knife again, I am using a fine portion of the sharpener, and it’s fine portion is just to get an edge back on your blade.
If you were using a coarse portion, this is for a damaged blade or extremely dull knife. You take and I use the coarse portion. If you were to break one of your serrations like you dropped it on a curve and it broke a portion of the blade. Then you use the coarse portion of the sharpener to put an edge back on this blade and reshape the blade.
Essentially, so, let’s make a few more passes to get the edge back on this knife. Let me demonstrate how to use this diamond coat at raw. You take the diamond coated. Rod hold it at about a 45 degree angle and, as you push it down the serration, you rotate it on your blade. This is how you get that nice edge back on your serration. You just repeat this I’d say about three to four strokes per serrations.
Typically I’ll be Fox with tanto style, a wood serrations for my Wharf knives, because it’s a great utilitarian type of knife to own. You could use the type of Horsham of this blade for self-defense and you could use the serrated edge for making deep cuts in a working environment. I just put that edge on here. Let’s test it out on some paper now see if I could cut this paper, no problem whatsoever you guys saw earlier I- was not able to make these types of cuts using this knife 9 to 15 dollars.
It’s more of a practical, everyday price that you should be able to find this knife sharpener, for this is a really great filler gift to throw in a gift bag. You know somebody have a birthday if it’s a holiday, it’s a great, really inexpensive item to give the night lover in your life great to keep in a glove keeping an EDC bag, keeping a center console of your car.
If you carry a knife, this is a must-have item, it’s portable, it’s inexpensive and it works, but it’s review on a Smith’s pocket knife. This is a really awesome piece of gear. I’m gonna, give it two thumbs up, really great, buy, really inexpensive, very portable, and it’s just great for all knife lovers in your life, your military, the ninth enthusiast: it doesn’t matter, it’s really awesome easy to throw in a center console glove box.
Edc back and closing I’ll forget to thank your local first responders, who that multi-well it now and your local military personnel don’t settle to American heroes. It’s the better, no problem whatsoever.
What’s up everyone Tim here from everyday tactical vids and today we’re looking at these Smith’s pocket pal x2, sharpener and survival tool? The price point for this item is going to run you 12 up to probably 16 or 17 dollars, I found it at Walmart and got it for about 14 bucks there and it’s pretty straightforward tool. The thing I like about it is it’s super compact.
You can just throw it into a pocket or into a bag, and it offers you a bunch of different options that would be helpful when out, camping or just out and about, and certainly in a survival situation as well. Let’s talk about the different elements in the pocket. Pal x2. As you can see hanging down, we have the compass. It is small, but certainly very functional over on this side.
You can see this great piece of plastic when you pull that out, that’s your Ferro rod and you can see I’ve scraped off a little bit of the coating. That’s on it to use it most effectively. You want to scrape all that off. First, you do have up top a carbide and ceramic sharpener, and then this is the direction of that you’re, going to pull your blade through down.
On this end, you can see a very small button there right there and there’s your LED light over on this side. You do have your diamond sharpener, which comes out to that angle, and then the last item actually is down here and if you blow into this, you will have an emergency whistle. I just want to show you quickly how the fire steel works, as I mentioned before it tells you which direction to pull your blade through you’re, going to be pulling your fire steel, the same way put it in the carbide side and then pull away, and you get your spark I’ve placed it on top of my iPhone here, just to show you how small it is actual measurements, it’s about three and a half long and about an inch and a half wide and then about half an inch high.
Here’s a look at two of your sharpeners. You can use the carbide sharpener to put an edge back on the blade. That’s been pretty beat up and then at the end, you’re going to wrap up by running it through the ceramic sharpener to put that fine edge on the blade, because this blade is in pretty good shape, I’m just going to use the ceramic sharpener, and there is a groove here and it’s kind of a groove here, so you hold on like so you can hold it like this.
Just keep your fingers away from where your to be pulling the blade through I’m going to hold it like this, because this is most comfortable for me and then you can see you just going to place the edge of the knife in there and pull through that’s going to wrap it up for the Smiths pocket, pal x2, sharpener and survival tool. Hopefully this gets you thinking about if you could use one of these in one of your kits or even just as something to throw in a pocket when you head out for the day, thanks as always for checking out our videos.
Please subscribe to everyday tactical vids here on YouTube like us on facebook, follow us on twitter and check us out on tumblr more videos coming soon take care. You.
I’m rust with Smith’s, you know as a for the worst and hope for the best. That’s why a my bag I’m now carrying the new pocket pal x2 from Smith’s. This is the pocket pal x2. This is the newest little tool from Smith’s that is a sharpener and a survival tool. I’m going to show you a few of the features that it has both from the sharpening side and from the survival side and I’ll show you how to use it. Sharpening a knife with the Pocket Pal x2 is fairly easy. There’s a couple pull through sharpening slots on the top of the sharpener one is a carbide slot and one is a ceramic slot.
The carbide slides your core slot and the ceramic slides your fine slot. You can use the carbide slot to set the edge on a very dull or damaged blade. You can use the ceramic slot for finishing the edge. Also, the ceramics are specially shaped, like a sharpened serrations to sharpen a serration, or gut hook on the with the tapered diamond ROG. Just pull the diamond rod out here is the tapered diamond around the bottom. Lock it into place you have to sharpen your serrations, you could also sharpen a single bevel blade with this tapered diamond rod to sharpen a hunting knife like so you want to insert the knife into the carbide slot if it’s a very dull or damaged blade, cut the tip down slightly then pull the knife blade through like so because it’s two sets of carbide blades you’re sharpening both sides, the knife at the same time and then reset an edge.
It’s going to take you probably six to eight pulls through that slot. Then you want to move to the fine slot again tip the tip of the blade down pull the knife through. Like so make sure you hold the knife straight up and down, don’t let it to one side of the other start at the back of the blade it sharpen all the way out to the tip, and you want to put that about eight to ten times now. If you want to sharpen a serrated edge knife, there’s a serrated portion of your blade, you want to open the taper diamond rod, lock it into place, put the rod into the situation and then hold the right at the angle of the serration sharp the grinding illustration push in and turn you have to do, each individual serration like so, and then, when you finish, you want to rub the back of those pressures across the back to remove that burr or you can pull the serrated part of the blade through the ceramic slot like so when you pull the serrations across the ceramic stone just use light pressure, that’s how you use the Pocket Pal x2 to sharpen either a standard, edged blade or a serrated edge bleed.
Now, let’s get to the cool part of this new product. The survival features, as you can see here, unless the vital features you have a compass that hangs off the end. Here you have a whistle in the end right here. You also have a light, an LED light. It’s a push button! Here’s your button right here! You just push the light like that. It’s a it’s a it doesn’t stay on. You have to push the button hold it to hold it on, and then you also have a fire starter. Fire starter is a little fire. Stick that slides into the edge right here and the fire starter.
You can actually use the precision ground carbides to create the spark with your fire starter. Now, the first time you use this fire starter, you’ll notice, it’s a black rod. You have to remove the black coating from the rod to get this the down to the metal to create the sparks. So you want to pull that through there several times to remove that coating I. Do it all the way around most time and then what you see once it gets down to the sparks? It starts creating the spark when you fish, you just put your fire starter back into the little compartment there and those are survival features of the Pocket Pal x2 I’m, getting ready to start a fire with the Pocket Pal, x2 and I.
Don’t have my matches so I’ve got my fire stick out and what I’m going to do is I’m going to insert the fire to get to the carbide slot. Then I’m going to pull it through like so the other way you could do it is you could turn your hold your fire? Stick it in your hand, turn the Pocket Pal over and insert the sticker to the carbide line and then shoot the flames down to the fire. Like that, I tell easy. It is to use the fire. Stick to start a fire you’re, not ready to go hunting or camping until you have the pocket pal x2 from Smith’s.
I’m Restless miss you know like a young, the worst and hope for the best. That’s, why am I bag? I’m now came the new pocket pal x2 from smiths. This is the Pocket Pal x2. This is the newest little tool from smiths, that is a sharpener and a survival tool. I’m going to show you a few of the features that it has low from the sharpening side and from the survival side and I’ll show you how to use it.
Sharpening a knife with the Pocket Pal x2 is fairly easy. There’s a couple pull through sharpening slots on the top of the sharpener one is a carbide slot and one is the ceramics lot. The carbide slides your course lot and that ceramics light as your fine.
Hello, everybody got a product review here on the Pocket Pal x2, it’s made by Smith’s I picked this up at Walmart I think it was around 11 or 14 dollars, so I’m up for sure, but it’s supposed to have a fire starter a course and a fine blade for sharpening it and that so we’ll get it out and comes with a little compass on it which attach to the stringer I noticed on the compass. That’s not real good at locating the north and south. You got to get it just right for it to go too, but if you move it throw away the compass to me, I don’t really care for it.
It could be better and I’ve noticed on it that if you pull the string too hard here, it will come out of that. But if it does there’s a little part there, you can open it back up with and SiC the strings in it and put it back on there. Has this here part on it, the sharpened serrated edges on your knife. I’ve not used it yet, but it feels like it would probably do a pretty good job on it, which is pretty handy because it just folds out on this and it folds back again and it’s made for all the different sizes.
So you could sharpen just about any size of the serrated edges are even that got hooks on knives. You could do that even let them has a little light, an LED light on the end of it and there’s a button right here which it’s kind of hard to get into, but it’s pretty bright little light. If it’s the only light you got, you know with yeah it’d be butter and none a button this way down in there. So if it’s in your pocket, you’re not going to accidentally push up, run your battery down and it’s got a whistle when I hear the whistle I’ve noticed is not really good I’ll blow out here.
So you can hear it’s not that great of a war so I guess that would be better and nothing. But overall the whistle is not great and the comp is so far I don’t really care for. It’s got a little ferrule Rob that ghosts in the end of it here, which is pretty nice I like how they got it. It just slides in and out of that and how it’s pretty good. So it’s not gonna fall out on you and for on a feral rod to use it. You gotta do it on the carbide side here and we’ll do that real fast.
As you can see, it works there once you get that coating off of the carbide, I mean off of that barrel, rot that they put on them. It works pretty good. As you can see, it actually made some burn marks on the washer here. Good thing: it’s old washer and my wife just got a new one so and that just slides back in there, so the Ferro rod parts pretty good on it and it has the carbide and a ceramic one up for the knife sharpening and it has on it too.
It tells you which direction to pull one I’m actually will take this knife here and sharpen it a little it ain’t got a real good edge on it and it’s a cheap knife. So we’ll see if we can get out a little sharper and it looks like the tips been a little bit on that’s a little better, that’s the carbide side, so that’s pretty much just to get a good edge on it and you can find turn up with this here side, which is a ceramic side of it. You don’t have to push real hard on these just put the slight pressure on it, but nothing crazy, which I put a little better edge on it.
Like I, said this ain’t a real high quality knife, so you can’t get a real good sharp edge to hold on him anyway. Overall, this isn’t a real bad tool, like I, said they’re sharpening parts pretty good on it, the Bernal rod and having the light on it and this her sharpener for the serrated edges. This is pretty good, but the compass and the whistle has jumped pretty much so I’d, give us probably about us, 8 out of 10, so not a bad little tool to keep in your bug out bag, sort of throwing your pocket if you’re going somewhere.
So don’t forget to like subscribe and comment on my videos and have a great day everybody.
Hey guys, I wanted to do a review on the Smith’s Pocket Pal sharpener, which is right here, just making sure you get that and the Smith’s Pocket Pal survival sharpener. It’s got a bunch of features we’ll go over that in a momento. First off want to show you what I’ll be doing the review and demo on, and that’s this cold steel bolo machete no longer available. It’s been discontinued, see very nice machete typical carbon 1055 for cold steel.
You can see that really isn’t sharp at all. Show you on this piece of paper, embarassingly dull! Well, not bad! On the edge there yeah just yeah, okay, not bad there overall, though sharper than this spine, but not nearly as sharp as an edge I really haven’t used either of these sharpeners. Very much so I have no idea of how well it’s going to sharpen this I do have a few thoughts on the sharpeners themselves. I’m not gonna bust, this one out of the package, because this has every feature that it that this one has and more so basically, what we have here is the Smiths pocket pal sharpener to survival Edition.
The other ones just a sharpener, the sharpener, the black one, comes with a carbide and a ceramic sharpening opening and I believe that they’re at a 30-degree angle. Let me see here: it’s probably something I should have done before. I started this if it’s not 30 degrees, I’ll update the video I’ll put some annotations in some notes, so I’ve never been a big fan of carbide. Sharpeners haven’t really had all that great deal of success with ceramic.
However, the few times I have pulled another knife through this I did find that it did a decent job. It would be good in a pinch really. The best part of this to me is this diamond rod. Sharpener I, love, diamond rod, sharpeners love them they’re great for serrations inside radiuses, funky shapes they’re, not as limited as a stone they’re, certainly not for reshaping reeducate. They are for the final honing of the state, dubbed up the blade of the edge you probably strop it after you use the diamond rod as well, but typically when I’m, using something like micro and I’ve been chopping, a lot of wood with it I find a quick touch-up with the diamond.
Rod is all I need and it’s back to a very sharp, sharp keen edge, so I’m a big fan of Diamond rods. So for both of these just those three just those three pieces alone, those three sharpening systems alone. It’s it’s actually a pretty decent sharpening system. Overall, the carbide I’m itís like carbon before the carbide sharpening edge I I, would I, did do videos on a single sharpening edge. It’s almost like a half a popsicle stick size and it’s a it’s called.
The speedy, sharp and I did like those. However, it’s so easy to mess up your blade using one of those yeah. Take such a delicate touch that I don’t even recommend or use them anymore. If I’m going to use a carbide sharpener, it’s going to be something that has two edges on it already, so that as I’m drawing it through, it’s very consistent and whatever it’s doing to one side is doing to the other, and it’s a lot less likely to cause deformity or rolling of the edge.
The ceramic as well like I, said I haven’t, had a huge deal of success with ceramic sharpeners. However, it’s very common to find a ceramic sharpener in a kitchen for kitchen knives. A lot of people do like them so I, you know I have a lot to learn in a sharpening. That’s that’s something. I really should say I’m in no way a master of sharpening I have a lot to learn. I can sharpen something pretty decently. My preferable tool for sharpening is a belt sander, a one inch by 30 inch belt sander with various grits right down to leather strapping.
That said, this is great for in the field, quick touch-ups, if you do roll an edge or cause a deformity in the edge really, your carbide could get it back into order for you. Although I can carbide can do such damage so quickly, you really want to be careful with it. The other things that this has other than those three sharpening systems is. It’s got a whistle. Let’s give it a toot here. Pretty high pitch, probably will excuse me a sec.
Let me turn that off pretty high pitch. It will summon every dog in a ten-mile radius to you. That said, it’s it’s better than nothing. So it’s cool to have on there. I couldn’t yell anymore. If I was forced and I needed, my voice was hoarse or my throat was sore and I couldn’t yell anymore or I was incapacitated. All I could do was whistle. They had that. That might actually be very helpful. It also comes with a button.
Compass I have no idea what’s in this diamond rod in terms of what’s underneath that coating, so it’s probably aluminum, but in the event that it’s not that there is some metal in it. Just like there is with the carbide. It’s probably a good idea if I were to use this to completely remove it, and it’s very simple to remove just take it off like that, so you could remove that hold it away from any metal and it’s you know basic little button.
Compass, that’s cool! The other thing is this light. Of course you can’t see that because the daytime- and it’s very bright over here, but that’s a nice little LED, this thing’s, actually pretty cool it. It’s pretty bright for a little le deal, I think it’s a great addition. It’s not something you’d want to use all the time, but you know in an emergency situation, have to read a map quickly. Whatever you have only this in your pocket and you need a little light, it’s a great addition, I think it’s a it’s a great idea: I really enjoy the system.
The other thing is this: Pharisee Imran, this striker I’m, a big fan of these I love them again yet another way to make fire and you can never have enough of those around so for the price. It’s a great system. Now, let’s see what it does for this edge, like you saw already, this edge leaves a lot to be desired in terms of being sharp, so they’ve Chad proof to the top. Here you can see that it shows you the direction to pull through and it’s got divots for your finger and thumb so that you can safely hold it without maiming yourself, and you start with the carbide which is on this side, move to the ceramic and then the diamond rod.
So here we go very light. Try to keep it true, meaning up and down 90 degrees to the sharpener, draw it through as such. How many passes. Well, that depends on your blade as I’m doing this. Something that comes to mind is something like a Becker bk2 might not even fit in here or a thick knife in general, none don’t mean to pick on Becker I’m, just saying it probably wouldn’t fit in here. That’s not a bad thing. That’s just how it is so I can feel that that edges is starting to become reshaped.
It probably didn’t match the degree that the carbide pieces are set at now, but it’s recon forming to it. I can feel that that is pretty much. This last stroke will be as much as I can possibly do with this carbide. I’m really letting the knife do the pressure I’m not applying much pressure I’m, adding a little bit. Let’s move on to this ceramic same thing: I’m letting the knife apply the pressure, keeping it square up and down I apologize for the background noise.
This is a rather busy Industrial, Plaza and I’m, not feeling the same kind of feeling that I got from the carbide where I knew I was done. There’s no indication to that whatsoever. I’m just gonna double the amount of times that I pulled it through the carbide, which was I, don’t know around six or seven. Well, there’s that feeling: okay, it is there, then it’s almost a sound -, it’s a feeling of resistance and the sound, and it’s probably something that you can only gain by experience.
By doing it there we go so that’s as much as I want to do with either of those. Let me see if I can show you the edge and what happened here see where it’s the shiniest. Let me see here, you can even see that Sun gleaming off it. You see that light traveling up and down the edge of the blade. So it’s actually resurfaced the blade it put a new edge on it. This is a flat grind or uh, sorry, not a flat, but uh a bevel, and this is a secondary bevel down here.
I always prefer a convex edge myself, maybe one day I’ll get around to putting a convex edge on this, but really it’s just a utility machete, nothing more so I’m, okay, with the utility edge on it I, don’t feel any rolling, but it’s certainly not again as sharp as it’s going to be. So what I’ll do is I’ve done. The carbide, the ceramic now, let’s test this chart, I saw there was there we go quite a difference already guys.
So it’s a lot better. You can see that already so now, let me do the final edge with the diamond rod. Sharpener again same thing, I, like how my hand can be clear of getting potentially cut while using this, let’s see if I can get a great angle for you there we go, there’s no hard and fast rule to using this. As far as I know other than take your time don’t apply too much pressure. Try to try to keep the angle consistent.
Excuse me once more. Apologize should turn that off before I did the videos, but hey I did two three four five, six, seven all right better! Let’s see how this goes still tearing the paper somewhat. Overall, quite good though, and like I said in the field nice for touch up really nice, you want to put a proper edge on it when you, when you get back from camping or whatever chore or exercise, are doing, you can do that at home with the proper system or kit or a belt.
However, you can see it’s very decent they’re still tearing a bit, you know. I could probably do this ceramic pull it through the ceramic another I, don’t know ten times each side or more, and you know hit it with the diamond rod again. It probably does need to be touched up on the belt. Sander I haven’t sharpened that thing in years and I’ve abused it. So there you go what I recommend. This is the only system, a kit or tool that you have to sharpen.
No I would, however, very cool piece of kit great for a buggle bag, great for around the shop in your toolbox, just an overall cool piece of kit, good job Smith’s, and that you know what the price points pretty good in Canada. You know you guys get stuff a lot less expensive than we do in Canada, but in Canada, I paid 15 bucks for this. A and I paid 15 bucks for this. So really good. For the price point pretty much a fail-safe system, a pretty good, buy I I’m glad that I bought these two I bought them mainly to review.
But you know what a lot of the things I review and I don’t care for much I end up giving away these ones. I’ll, probably keep around I won’t be giving these up. I! Think they’re, pretty cool even in this hackle box, would be a cool thing to have not that I’m a big fisherman, but just in general, a cool piece of kit. So thanks for watching I will catch. You guys later. I hope that background noise wasn’t too much for you.
Thanks for watching see you later.
Hey they’re all spiky one here, I picked up a knife sharpener from my everyday work. Knife thought I’d do a quick little review on it. I’ve had very good luck with it. I’m very happy with it. I’d give it a two thumbs up. What it is is a Smith’s pocket sharpener, it’s designed to work with both straight edged, blades and serrated blades. It comes with a carbide, cutting side, a ceramic stone side and also a diamond coated file for the serrated blades I’ve used this now for several weeks.
I use my knife on a daily basis at work, and it always needs an edge. I’ve come to find this to be quite a handy little gadget to have in the toolbox. I thought it might be of interest to some of you. People out there that also use a knife on a regular basis, pretty simple item to use pretty much. You can, if you want open that up for a little bit of support, set it down on your table, take your blade.
I always run it through the carbide side several times and then, if you want to really get yourself a nice fine edge, you can run it through the ceramic side and then for your serrated blades. You can see this on that, but the file is different size from the tip all the way in and just file it right down there till you get the edge that you’re looking for like I said: I’ve used this for several weeks now and I’ve really come to like it actually picked up a second one, so that if I lost this one I misplaced, it I’d have one with me a good little piece of gear, especially for like I, said anybody that uses a knife for work or you going out camping.
It’s a handy little thing, I think off the top of my head. It was in the six or seven dollar range, so well worth the money again. I’d recommend it. If you’re looking for something like that, it’s a good bet hope this helped. You have a good one.
I’m rust with Smith’s knife sharpening you do you need one of these: the Pocket Pal knife sharpener. It works on straight edge, knives or serrated edge knives. Let me show you just how easy it is to use this little product. The pocket, pallet knife sharpener has two slots for straightedge blades and a tapered rod for serrated blades. The carbide slot for straightedge blades is used for extremely dull or damaged leaves to reset a cutting edge.
The ceramic slot which has cross ceramic stones, are used for finishing the edge. Also too, you can pull a serrated portion of your knife blade through these ceramic stones because of their special shape. Let me show you how to use the two, the carbide slot and their ceramic slot for sharpen the straightedge portion of the blade which is from this portion. Here you want to start out on the carbide slot.
You want to grasp the pocket-pouch in the finger grooves set it on the table and secure it. Insert the straightedge want the tip down slightly pull through make sure you rotate your wrist up to stop it all go out to the tip of the blade. Then you want to move to the ceramic same process insert pull through rotate out to the tip like so to sharpen the serrated portion of the blade, which is this there.
You hear you want to pull out the tapered diamond rod and lock it into position like so you want to grab the knife blade. You want to put the rod into the tapered part of the serration so that these the rod fills up the serration, and you want to hold the rod at the angle you want to sharpen the serration. Then, once you get it into the serrations, you want to push and turn at the same time and move to the next one and continue this process until it’s sharp again normally four or five strokes for each one will touch up each duration.
That’s how you use the pocket power line. Sharpener I, don’t know about you, but all my knives are sharp thanks to Smith’s. Sharpening products. See you next time.
Hey folks is Mark with Fire Mountain outdoors I’m, so glad you joined me today, hey it’s been a while I’ve been working a ton of hours and Father’s Day, it’s just around the corner, which means it’s time to take care of the men in your life. I’ve got a product that you are gonna like and whoever you buy this for is gonna love.
You know, if you don’t have a knife in your pocket, I, don’t know how you’re equipped to handle life. Hi I have two or three all the time. This is my. This is my favorite carry piece. This is a can of. Onion is a chive or scallion or I. Don’t even know it’s this one I love it. That’s the assisted opening.
It opens quick bam, bam, bam, I, use this for Riemann, copper, pipe at work, I use it at home, I use it for opening boxes or using skin and animals. I use it for everything, and all that heavy use makes it dull. All the time and, frankly, sharpening a knife is a chore. I’ve had a lot of different apparatus on sharpening knives, the lansky with the multi-angle and and everything was elaborate, and it was a ritual and frankly I’m.
Tired of that I got a dull knife. I need some quick I need something fast. I want a sharp edge on all my knives so that I’m, safe, a dull knife, is worse than no knife at all. A sharp knife is a safe knife. We are talking about this great device that I found. This is from Smith’s, and this is a pocket pal knife sharpener.
This I’ve been using this for the last two months and I love it. It’s it’s awesome, cost less than ten dollars. I got this for like $8 00 at my marked and I bought another one. Just so I could have the packaging because I endorse it. So much I mean this. Isn’t a paid endorsement. I like this, so much I wanted another one for the door pocket of my work van, so I could have it all the time.
Let’s take a look and I’ll show you what I liked about it. So here we have it. This is the Smiths it’s made in China, just like just about anything these days. It has a has two great elements. This is a carbide and this is a ceramic sharpener. Let me just give you a quick demonstration with my knife. The first is a carbide, and this is kind of a core sharpening thing and look how simple this is folks just set this down on a surface, and we drag our knife across that and you can hear from the grittiness there that that is actually shaving away.
Some of the steel. Now my tip gets a lot of wear so I’m gonna put a little bit more pressure. I’m gonna drag it on there about eight or ten strokes through there, and then we move over to the ceramic and the ceramic is finer and smoother, and it’s really kind of a feel and a here thing that many strokes and I am confident that this knife right here is ready to go to work and do what I need to do the thumbnail drag and see if it leaves a scar and my thumbnail.
It messes up my manicure, but that knife is sharp enough to go through the day and do what I needed to do. Here’s a cool feature that the less expensive Smith’s ones that three dollars don’t have. This is great for sharpening serrated blades. You know one of the problems with serrated blades is they’re. Always a barrier to sharpen I’ve got this Leatherman Wave that I carry and this you can do it pushing her dragon.
We’re gonna go ahead and push that through, and this will allow us to sharpen those annoying serrations that are on a lot of knives, I like a serrated knife for cutting rope or for cutting heavy stuff, but frankly, they’re hard to sharpen. Because of this particular aspect. I can take this little diamond sharpener.
This on here for under $10 and I can touch up the edge on those serrations restore the sharpness to the point. With a little bit more work, you can see the little marks left on my fingers. That’s actually the steel dragon off of there, so this is doing some work and then they recommend dragging it through the ceramic a couple of times just to knock the burrs off of the backside, and you can feel that and there I’ve restored the edge to the serrated blade hey.
So, let’s take a really close. Look at this I’ve got this on a macro, zoom zoomed. In really close- and you know, if you were a super purist, then you could see a lot of imperfections. You know what that’s actually what I like about this knife, sharpener the nature of the carbide and then the the ceramic actually makes the blade into kind of a micro serrated blade that just works awesome for what I use it for opening boxes, cutting skin cutting reaming, copper.
All of that there’s a roughness at the macro level. It’s it’s very! It’s very fine. It’s very sharp! It’s that’s! The best I can say is that this leaves a micro serrated surface, that you won’t get with, say, Lansky system or a series of stones or or whatever kind of method that you traditionally would use with a flat stone and a honing thing that surface that you’d see would be more mirror smooth.
If the angle was a hundred percent consistent and stroked in a in a traditional pattern, I really like how this sharpens the knives and leaves those micro serrations, because they cut aggressively- and you know what it only takes. A few seconds done, you’ve restored that sharp edge with those micro, serrations and you’re off the cutting, so I hope, I demonstrated the value of this and I mean it folks and I.
Can’t I can’t mince words here. I really really really really like this thing. This the sharpener is the best little pocket. Sharpener I mean short of $200, sharpening that you would find on a charter boat or something that you would need to plug in and have our this thing works. Awesome, I, love this thing: it’s quick, sharp, knives, safe knives, always ready to do the work.
If you get this as a gift for Father’s Day, whenever your dad or your uncle or whoever you bought it for is, is has a dull knife and they’re looking for a sharpener and they find it they’re. Gonna. Remember you! You always want to be the good one. Don’t you you can be the good one: hey where’s that knife sharpener that so-and-so got for me.
Hey I, wasn’t seen that. Don’t you want that I know you do so just check it out. It’s a great thing, get one for yourself, get one for your toolbox, you one for your door pocket or your truck get one for the kitchen, there’s nothing worse than getting a dull knife out of the kitchen, the stupid little steel that stupid thing yeah.
You know what I’m talking about yeah and I think stupid. You know: what’s stupid, I know it’s stupid. This thing is better just get this put this in the junk drawer, so you can always find it Hey. As always thanks for watching. You are the reason that we do this and we covet your subscriptions. We covet your likes and we cover your thumbs up the more that you do, that, the more influence that we have and the market exposure, so that we can, we can get more reviews and gear and stuff so that we can tell you about it.
As always. Thanks for watching sharp knife safe knife, keep dad keep your husband, keep everybody safe check out. The Smith I’ll get I’ll, take two so in just a few short strokes for under an initial investment. This so for just a sheet, but hey for less than $10 out the door and a few short strokes, your dad, your brother, your father-in-law, whoever gonna have a tool that makes their knife sharp again quick and easy and simple, no rocket science, no elaborate ritual.
No nothing! You don’t want! Folks! You don’t have to burn one of these to make your significant other or your dad or watch into the surf that I guarantee you. If you pick up this little Smith’s Pocket, Pal, they’ll, remember you! Every time you sharpen your knife.
We’re going to take a look at the Smith’s pocket pal knife sharpener, alright. So if you’re looking for a compact way to sharpen a knife in the field, this is a really nice alternative. It’s not going to be as good as say. Your work sharp a portable one, but you know for getting an edge on a knife in the field. That’s just my opinion. I think this is you know the work sharp is superior for getting an edge on your knife in the field. In a pinch, this will work, I’m, currently building a kind of a backpacking camping bag just to go out and walk around the mountains and see what’s out there and also to do some gear reviews remotely so I wanted a little sharpener with me in case my knife does get dull I’m gonna, give you a quick look at it.
You have a coarse side and a fine side and a nice thing, because the knife in that bag will be serrated and it is a diamond hone for the serrations. Basically, you put it on along the angle and just push forward. One way you love your serrations. So it’s pretty simple I mean a pinch I’m sure this could probably be used if you hold it to sharpen your own knife or down that way. Whichever way you want to go so where it’s more comfortable but the correct way to use it is like this, you got a little spot here for your fingers.
You’re going to place your knife in here and just pull back put it straight as straight as you can any four you start getting an edge now. This isn’t the best example of a knife to use, because this is my beater knife around here, then you have the fine side. Now, let’s say I’ve done this enough times, where I’m pretty comfortable with how it feels least thing yeah, that’s getting that’s taking some metal off again, I, don’t know what the exact angle is on these and I’m going to have to find that out, because I’m hoping this 20 or 25, but anyway there now you starting to get a nice edge on that.
Now you take the fine, which is basically a ceramic, and you run that through an equal number of times, something interesting is I’m noticing I can feel it smoothing out as I’m dealing with as I’m pulling it back. I feel the the little ridges that were cut into it and the little wire edge being taken off from the put will fit on there now I’ve also taken a piece of leather in my bag, so I have a small little strop just enough to finish a blade off nothing major and enough to keep it touched up.
So we’re going to simulate that by using this little homemade straw, yeah and that’s a sharp-edged I got to tell you. Let’s see it’s shaving hair, not incredibly, not ridiculously, but it is shaving hair off. So that’s a pretty neat little thing, something neat for your bug out: bag. It weighs ounces. It’s a Smith’s pocket pal, believe these retail for around nine or ten dollars. I’ve had this for a while I’ve been meaning to do a review on it and basically, what I’m doing is I’m doing a review on everything I’m going to be putting into this bag and I’m going to be using for the channel to do overnight camp outs to do video reviews from remote locations, just kind of mix things up a little bit and make it a little more fun.
So there it is Smith’s Pocket, Pal Smith’s makes great sharpeners granted they’re not going to be the same quality as a work sharp as far as edge quality I’m. Not talking about you know. The quality of the product product is great, but your edge isn’t going to be as sharp as say with something you know like a work, sharp butt or any of the other great runners out there. But this will get you an edge back on your knife or your axe and your smaller axe. I would not use this on a large chopping axe get a little hatchet.
It can’t hatchet. We work great for, and this will take care of you pretty good. So that’s it anyway. Thanks for watching we’ll talk to you guys soon,.

Hey guys, it’s nice and shade here I’m a long time, yeah a lot of videos to make at least try to since I updated my knife collection. It updated it pretty much very often, actually not really often I buy a new knife, no matter what kind of knife it is every month or so, and today I’m gonna review the Hoffman, Richter I believe it’s called here.
It is right here and I. Just go! Go down like this, so you can see how big this [ __ ] is. Actually that’s Paul my hand, it’s gonna, see how big it is right there. This is the rift Hoffman, Richter, HR, 30, tactical folding knife. It costs about 30 bucks on Amazon and I will get it right me to this knife.
Let me just open if you guys look at that baby. Look at the beauty! Now, let me get into the blade. The blade is a titanium coated, razor sharp steel blade made out of high quality 440c steel has a nice edge on it. Hopefully my camera can focus whoa. Oh, it has a notch at the bottom right here. As you can see, this notch will allow you to cut through rope anything like that of that feature.
As you can see, it’s only sharpened on one side. That means you only have seen that gentleman side. Let me just get, will try to get close-up on this blade, but I don’t think I can be able to do with my camera mm. I. Guess that’s good enough! Anyways! This blade is the length of the blade is on 3 7 inches for a blade length.
Let me show you my index finger right here. It’s my index finger and it actually from the bottom of my index finger there. We go that’s how long it is pretty [ __ ] huge this blade length. The entire length of this blade actually I should say entirety of the knife is um 9 inches a little bit over 9 inches the handle is huge, I mean with holding it in my hand.
If it’s nice, it’s not bad I’m, using my left hand to record since this is how the camera set up. But let me just turn us around, so you can guys get a good look of the blade itself entirety. I’m! Sorry about my keyboard, I, don’t you I’m, recording I’m I I’m a computer desk, but this is how the blade looks like the whole thing is: steel handle and everything.
I’m. Sorry I got that nice titanium, look to it um, it’s a really really heavy. It doesn’t say on Amazon how heavy it is, but there is, there was a spot where I showed you the shipping, how much the ship, shipping ways and I believed it said it. The shipping a weight caught I was around eight ounces and that’s pretty heavy I mean just this in the box that comes in and the shipping box pretty heavy.
Let me just put this down there. We go now this knife, it’s a really nice I bought it a week ago. I do not use it for everyday carrier just because it’s really [ __ ] heavy. For me to carry this everyday in my pocket, I mean it’s, it’s a lot heavier than a normal everyday. Carry pocket. Knife and I’ll. Show you one that I used before this one and that one’s kinda yeah it’s kind of bigger anyway, not bigger I, mean it’s kind of big for your normal EDC everyday.
Carry there you go you hear that here it is. Let me just try to get these lined up together. I will also do a review on this one as well. We’ll do this, since this one has more curvature to it. But, as you can see here, it’s it’s pretty big too I mean the blade length. That’s both the same as this one. It’s not a little bit bigger, that’s about the same, and you just go.
Show you battle. Look at that! This is the Smith & Wesson black ops. So you can see you right here: Smith & Wesson, black ops. This is nice and light and I feel problem down at the counter. This the handle is not made out of metal or anything as it looks like it’s made out of metal compared to sound like this.
It’s it’s a boat, not not quite as big, but it’s pretty close now that you guys got an idea of how big the Hoff man [ __, ] Richter with cut the taro. What I’m, oh I’m, sorry guys I, don’t know how to say the name. What’s the HR 30, we just tripod that guy, okay yeah we go I’ll, do a review on this guy someday and raise this knife has a little safe to operate here.
It is but I forgot to show you guys and it is spring-assisted. So, as you saw, you guys saw that whispering sister just house, it may sound when you use the spring system as your some some some opening. Whatever you want to call these things, I, don’t know what a fishy call him go. I will put this down and just give you guys, so you guys can see how it looks like I’m, sorry about the lighting.
It makes it seem a little yellowish, but this is how it looks like yeah I’ll show you the back, since people probably want to see the back as well. That’s how it looks in the back. So it looks I mean it’s a nice color nice, a titanium look mine came with this little scuff right here. I, don’t know if you guys can see it mmm, oh yeah! I! Don’t think you guys here.
This is scuff on the right side of the handle there. It is right there. It’s actually two of them one right here, one right here, but it doesn’t bother me that much anyways that was the Hoffmann Richter or ricked our wood, which turf I, don’t know how I said: I’m. Sorry I’m, not professional at my name’s yep.
This was a look at that I hope you enjoyed the video thanks for watching.
Well, I got my new knife in the mail like it. That was a little effort. This sucker is actually spring-assisted. Get to this point in the spring starts kicking in it’s got quite a spring so and it’s heavy as hell. It’s all metal. It’s a real knife. I like it.
Hey guys face is about what my hat sideways. So today, Brett’s operating camera I’m at his house on his desk I still hold on sorry for the mess of her ears. Just yeah. A lot of that stuff was organized on this table, but then we had just had to move it because it wasn’t ready for a video but no way our cousin duct tape go but uh yeah. So if you guys have noticed, I have not uploaded a video I’m either my channels and almost three months, Oh face to survival three months that random guy one month um but yeah, it’s been a while I just haven’t.
Had the we have limited data right now on our Wi-Fi, so um counters, that’s kinda! How to edit and upload this video anyways right and made a video before on this knife, Huffman, richer, HR, 16, some very nice when they’re new um. This is Bret’s very nice knife I like the auto. Now you might notice this one hasn’t been really used much at least to my standards. But you want to redo everything, cuz I, because I keep forgetting that the mic is over.
Here, um but yeah this is best knife. Nice, clean new I’m, just gonna, set this over here. I want you to take a really close look to mine this knife I’ve had since just before we move so last time, I made a video I’ve been working on home improvements at her house. We’ve been unpacking and stuff. I’ve used this to sharpen construction, pencils, all kinds of things, and it’s still in one piece: heavy freakin knife but I like it, my locket starting to seize up a little bit, but little wd-40, don’t shoot.
Oh yeah I was gonna, hold it like this, but they would just hit each I’m actually faster, now much newer, but his opens way smoother. When I get my next CRKT knife I will this will either end up in my go bag or my secret on it either or a knife yeah my go bag so decision to choose the prep speed, it’s good! It’s great! There’s ice in there. Not you socks, we’re not that cheap, but man.
Hey everybody: this is Ravi at the pocket knife. Well, I guess I should say quote-unquote pocket knife review. You might understand that after you watch the video. Let’s do a quick watch check because then I’m wearing the classic Casio f91 w I actually just finally got this on NATO strap today, although this is not the NATO that I would love to wear it with, because it looks a little beetle juicy but will be grabbing.
Another I think 18 millimeter NATO later, but I’ve been really really enjoying this six dollar Casio digital watch and I hope to have a review of this of this guy soon. Alright, so, let’s get to the review at hand. So today we are going to take a look at this Hoffmann Richter H ar-15, tactical folder. This was actually a gift from my father-in-law, who I believe was given this knife after joining some kind of club or something new that I like knives, and so he decided to give it to me.
I believe when he gave me this I had just purchased even my Kershaw skyline or Montero rat, and he gave me this and I really kind of laughed at it and stuck it in my wife’s car to be kind of a backup knife for her. You know if she ever needed anything and kind of forgot about it until now and pulled it out and have been playing with this guy. So I thought it might do a little review.
So the Hoffman director, H ar-15, comes in this nice little box. You know whatever, and we get the lovely made in China logo. There Oh fun, opening this knife wow. Look at that so yeah. This is a full metal, full steel folder. So I you know. I think that this knife is actually kind of supposed to mimic a I. Don’t know your kind of custom or your midtech folder, because just aesthetically, this guy looks a lot like something that you might pay.
You know a lot of money for something that’s custom made I mean this thing looks like it was kind of machined. It just has the look of a you know. In my opinion, a fairly expensive knife has the feel of a fairly expensive knife and it is a spring assisted flipper. So let’s do a size comparison. Let me bring in something that I think is pretty close in size. The Gerber pear frame, mate.
Oh wait! A second, maybe I, maybe I goofed, on that here we go. This is my fixed blade, bushcraft knife that I’ve shown off in the best and yeah there we go that’s much closer in size, so yeah this knife is massive. It’s. It is gigantic this. This guy here is just literally a solid sheet of metal with some Purpleheart handles, and this is this tactical excuse me this tactical folder of the HR 15, a pretty large knife.
Just to give you an idea of size. Here’s my Spyderco delica, my trusty trusty Spyderco, so that gives you kind of an idea handles not too far off, but obviously the blade is just is just massive, so alright, so that should give you an idea of size. Let’s do a quick weight check on this knife because that’s really the important thing on this knife I’m going to have to move the camera around a little bit just because my scale has a display, that’s very difficult to read.
But let’s, let’s throw this guy on here and I mean this is just comical 9 ounces I can get that focus there. We go 9 ounces, I’m, going to throw this off and throw up my fixed plate here. Five and a half ounces, just unreal I mean just amazing, so this guy is is twice as heavy as the largest knife that I ever use and- and you know you can see why- right this is uh.
This has got tight, I guess, stainless steel handles and blade this, this guy, which is just literally a solid sheet of metal. That’s been shaped and added some. You know fairly heavy Purpleheart handles this guy’s half the weight of this of this bulky monster, just just fantastic price. I, don’t think I talk price, yet I think that you can get this knife on Amazon for $25 free shipping right now.
You know that price has been slashed from a hundred and twenty dollar original price, and- and now is yours for only twenty five bucks, which is you know, hop on over grab grab yourself, one obviously they’ve played some kind of price price gimmick. There’s, there’s just no chance that this guy was ever a you know, hundred and twenty dollar knife you saw they made in China.
If you did not see that on the box, I think you can see that right here if I can get this and yep 440 stainless China with the Hoffman Richter logo. So so yes about 25 bucks. So when we’re thinking about comparing this we’re thinking about now, you know something like the well I would say we’re thinking about something like the Kershaw or the Ontario rat, or something like that, but really this this knife, it doesn’t resemble either it.
The purpose is not really, you know the purpose of either of those other knives. This is this, is you know a tactical folder? This is kind of what, if you’ve seen like you know, Nick Shabazz’s latest knife rant video. You know this is this. Is your ridiculous, overly built tactical slash, you know just beat up knife. What’s the purpose of this knife, I don’t have a clue.
I mean this knife is I, mean I, don’t know, I, don’t know if you’re buying this knife, why you wouldn’t just go ahead and buy a fixed blade since its half is heavy, you can get something that is, you know, literally one piece of steels that have you know this design where it’s folding, and so, if you are going to be beating on this guy, you know you could really. Obviously you could easily break this, whereas with a fixed blade you, you know, you can just beat it to heck.
I cannot imagine anyone ever carrying this knife. My father-in-law, who gave this to me, is a very large man, he’s just a big guy military guy and he gave us to me I can’t even imagine him carrying this I mean it’s just so ridiculously heavy. You know that I I can’t ever see this going in the pocket, although it does have a pocket clip and what’s funny about this- is that the pocket clip is forced, tip down and forced on your wet right side.
I guess you can wear this on the left, but that flipper is going to be right there, and so you, you can’t really change the the pocket clip position anywhere. So to me, this knife is not really made to be carried around. It’s made to look cool, I guess I mean I. That’s the only thing. I can think that this knife is really made to do. Let’s, let’s go over just the basics of the knife and we’ll get into the ergonomics.
So, like I said pretty much. The whole thing is: steel is 440, stainless steel. Now I, don’t know if it doesn’t say 440 C, which is kind of what you come to expect. So you know I will see I really kind of like 440 see. In fact, that’s that’s all that this guy is, but you know it’s held up just fine, although I would anticipate being made in China and just just the general you know make of this knife.
It’s probably not 440c, you know so 440 a or B I think this is a spring-assisted knife, so it has this flipper here. It also has the thumb stud one thing I noticed about the thumb stud is that is very difficult to use the thumb stud. So the first couple times I was trying this knife I just could not get it. Finally, I got it. You do have to push really really really hard against this thumb-stud really to get it to deploy that way, and it tends to wear kind of a hot spot in your hand.
So the flipper here, the flipper action- is actually really good. I’m kind of impressed, part of that is the spring assist I, really wish that I had my Kershaw Leake still I did sell that knife, because I wasn’t a huge fan to kind of compare the spring. To be honest with you, I almost prefer this spring assist more than the Kershaw leek, which is kind of crazy to think.
But you know one of the things that I really like about the spring assist is that it’s not overly assisted. You know the Kershaw leaked to me was such a strong spring. That I really felt like I was going to hurt myself anytime I close the knife now I’m with this guy and see if I can show it. When I go to close this, when I got to the Kershaw leek, you would get right about there and it would start pushing back on you and so just kind of catapult, with this guy I’m pushing all the way back here until this guy is really doing anything, and even if I try to kind of flick it, it’s it’s just not as strong as the Kershaw leek was, and so it’s very easy, even given the size of this knife to close it one-handed and to not feel like you, you know, you’re really resisting all that much so the spring assist I.
Actually like the one thing about the spring assist. It’s kind of a delayed assist, you push, push push push you’re, pushing it out and then it finally catches, which is just kind of a take on the quality here, so organ Amish, so organ is actually fantastic on this knife. Knife feels really great I can’t even fill the pocket clip because it is so big. It’s got a nice little finger, choil there, some jimping on the the liner lock there, but all in all, like the you know, the the handle is this kind of stainless steel.
You know milled handle and it’s got this kind of wave design. Pardon the dog barking in the background, but the the handle feels actually really great. Even even you know going back this way. It does, you know, feel pretty good in the hands. So you know I can’t complain about the ergonomics for such large knife. It is really nice. The other thing to note about this knife is the glass breaker back here.
This also serves, as your lanyard hole, just a big sheet of metal that attaches from right there. You can see the the clip to right there and you know I I can pretty much assure you, although I have not tried it that this that that would break some glass I mean you almost don’t need a glass breaker on this knife, because the whole thing could probably serve as a glass breaker I’m.
Just given the heft of this knife, this is a serrated blade. I think they do sell one without the serrations. If you’ve watched some of other videos, you know I’m, not huge fan of serrations, but this one you know, whatever is what it is. This isn’t going to be a carry knife anyway, so I really don’t care if you’re going to have a massive tactical camp, folder or whatever.
Why not? There are some Syrians on there. You probably be cutting some some rope. Alright, so lock up I talked about the spring. This is a frame lock. So it’s kind of funny to me. You’ve got these just massive handle scales here of stainless steel, and then you have these kind of itty-bitty liners so see. If I can get this in focus right there. No, that’s still not in focus, so you kind of have these.
These pretty small liners, which is, is just kind of interesting, given the fact that everything else in this knife is so large. That being said, it locks up pretty good I. Think you know it’s it’s it’s right there, where it’s past the the steel. So you know I, don’t have any worry about this guy folding. You know it’s less than 50%, which you know it’s fine by me.
You’ll notice that the the ramp it’s kind of slanted right here. You can really see that if I close this knife and look at it from this side, you’ll notice that ramp they’re looking inside this knife, it’s just kind of weird design, I assume some of that is the spring assist, but I would actually say the centering on this knife is pretty good. I mean it’s not perfect, but you know for a $25, Chinese knife.
It’s it’s not awful. The clip on this knife again, I, don’t see why you would ever want a clip on a knife like this, and you know this one’s, not that great anyway. You know it’s not too tight, which is nice and you know I- think I’ve talked about this before, but this is much more like the Kershaw Skyline knife clip where you kind of start out here and then you ramp down instead of the Ontario rat or something which just comes straight down, which is nice but again like I’m, just going to remove this as soon as I get done with this video, because I would never use a clip on a knife like this you’re, just not going to be carrying this guy around anywhere um.
Let’s see steel so for 40 I’m, not really sure you know, like I said if it’s for four you see or what it is, but you know I don’t hate it. I haven’t had to really sharpen this guy. Yet because I, you know, I just don’t really cut with this knife, but you know for what it is: Chinese knife, I I can’t imagine it’s going to be worse than the 8 13 or 8 CR, 13, MOV, steel, but I guess time will tell with that one the whole.
You know I really wanted to hate this knife when I remembered that this was in the in my wife’s car, I kind of said. Oh man, this is going to be fantastic. I can just have this scathing review of this very cheap Chinese made knife and you know I pulled it out and forgot just how ridiculously massive it is. But you know what this knife is kind of endearing to me. Um, you know it’s.
The the logo is, you know, not super cheesy. It’s got this kind of cool wolf guy here I threw some COP. That’s what I use on my knife: some cleaner, lubricant and preservative, which is a a gun lube that I use, but I threw some CLP in the pivot, and that has really made this. This really slick, you know, I, don’t hate it. I really want to hate it and I don’t I mean.
Obviously this is not going to be a carry knife for me. So I guess my cutter carry would be cut, but this knife in going anyway. This is staying in my collection. One of the things that I love is that they they’re using these. You know from what I see they’re they’re using torques here so I, don’t even know if I can get that in video, but they’ve got you know traditional Torx bit so I can work on this knife.
I can take the pocket clip off, which is you know, pretty nice a lot of times on Chinese knives, you’ll, see them use kind of other fastening mechanisms, and so it’s kind of nice that they’ve that they’ve done that all in all, like you know, I wouldn’t say, run out and buy one of these, but for 25 bucks. If you’re looking for something, that’s just ridiculously over built that you’re never going to have to take to its limit.
You know that this thing is going to stay in my car or in my toolbox or something because you know with the spring assist this knife is just super fun even to sit at your desk and and kind of flick. This guy open it’s just it’s a fun little knife, not little! It’s massive! It’s a fun knife, it’s just kind of ridiculous and its cheapness and it’s overbuilt quality.
You know, but what can I say: I really wanted to hate it and I. Don’t I kind of love it. You know it’ll never be in my pocket, but you know who knows: I’ll, probably take it camping or something if you’re looking for that custom knife made look but you, but you may not have the budget for it grab. One of these guys, I, don’t think really. Anyone knows who Kaufmann Richter is, and so you can come up with a cool story about how much you paid for your knife and and whatnot might be kind of cool all right.
So thanks for thanks for watching this review today, we’ll see you next time.
Just wanted to show you a I mean I fight vs and the often Richter that whatever I know it’s made in China, that’s not cooperating, and we gotta say you know: I, really, I really hate to think buying something made in China I’m, trying I’m trying not to but gotta say for this life for being made in China. It is well made. It looks good, it’s heavy, that’s the bad part about tonight, but it’s sharp inhale. That and the point yes, that point got me: I was closing the night. The knife was already released, the blade was released and I was holding him somehow my hand got ahead of the point and it just was a split second boom got me gonna bled, like a pig dude anyway, the knife is half straight blade, have serrated too much everything there.
You know that’s a good shot all right anyway, there’s no play anywhere. No up-and-down movement, no side-to-side little limp, it’s got double thumb studs and it’s got the only uh the right side, I handed that belt clip, but other than that, the the varium the important part is. It can do this on this slide, we’re on the wrong side of the paper, that’s okay, slice and Google stuff over here. Not doing that cooperating them. Just people making a video there. You go. Okay, you gotta work. Okay, I love that anyway, this is very sharp I, like it I think it’s the heaviest pocket.
My violin, my wife has a ZT zero tolerance and those are pretty big night matter of fact. I have a poker Magnum! That’s pretty big I think this is anyway yeah. That’s a good night. The only thing I don’t like about it is some time, but I guess they’re getting better. We have to do better than what we’re doing so anyway. This came from private concerns that I subscribe to, as it offers up to you once in a while and I won this game. Look I got it. We’re gonna beat in price, so you have a chance to have one of them.
Maybe you can check out Amazon I’m, not sure, but it’ll be a good thing to have when you need it. That’s for sure Oh forgot. It’s got a glass breaker on it and the same thing with lanyard hole at the same time, but yeah I got no video I make. So thanks for watching and we’ll see you in the next video.
What’s up guys is the modern Bladesman Reaper. Now this is a single edge cancer point fixed blade knife apparently limited edition now that kind of sucks, but a feeling sucks, we pulled it on it and if you do manage to find it well as reviews for you now, this knife in general, actually not too bad. You compare some of some of the other half and Rick your knife products that I’ve got it’s definitely on the top of my list, a lot of the other options they have it’s not not too good, especially in comparison to other knives of the same price or the same way and stuff like that.
But without further ado. Let’s begin this review now, let’s begin with the action here now, the sheath, as you can see, stays off from Kydex sheets, but it’s not actual Kydex Hannam of material to say, sighs feels like a super Chinese cheap version of a Kydex sheath it just coming up. It feels like it’s too brittle, but you know for a lot of other stuff to solve. You find it’s got that belt click here to ok design.
It is a might access, you just push it to the other side pretty easily and then, of course, for the drain hole is pretty good. The job – – Rick you for that. Now when it comes to blade retention, though that is where the Seas get communis, you can see, doesn’t really hold the knife -. Well, actually it holds it pretty damn for weak, so uh yeah, that’s definitely been lost for me, but I have another Hoffman, Richter Reaper right here and this sheet, just perfect, go I’m.
Gonna know if that’s just the quality control problem because uh you know the sheets are pretty cheap, but yeah. This one is pretty crap, but if I’m pretty good, so no gun – Rick today. But if you don’t like this fake Kydex sheath here or you have one, that’s super rattling my gram right here. They also come with this nylon sheath here now this pill on sheet. It comes pretty stiff, you kind of have to be rough break it in she doesn’t fit the knife super well in the game.
So once you get it this one’s uploading immediate by the way- and you get it it’s really nice super silent. So that’s pretty damn good, like that. Quite big. Now, of course, you’re not going to be able to deploy it as fast as if you had in this sheep, but in terms of just blade retention- and you know you still carry this- is the way to go. The only thing is not as versatile, so if you’re lefty, you might want to get just use a sheet and just reverse the belt clip to the other side.
But you know especially I have two sheets that you don’t like one of them, but I would have preferred if there was just one sheet, but it was you know for you being good, but now we have two pretty mediocre sheets and that’s kind of a shame. But whatever sorry about that guys, camera battery ran out so I’m just going to start to blade here. The spindle you can see is pretty damn handsome looking holds your grip quite well because of the flared bottom you’re going to fly again, which is pretty cool and also holding the safe grip here pretty comfortably.
Then again, I have a normal-sized man, so if you have larger hands or you wouldn’t love mileage movie areas, don’t know about that. It’s got a pummel here. It’s going to work really well stick and knife is also happy. So it’s going to bring pretty much anything in be it glass rocks a dude. You know it’s going to do that. Job really nice and also it’s got a lanyard hole. The LAN would do that. It’s got a you know, kind of a mini guard here, a really cute guard with the really cute finger Toro right there.
So I guess your finger doesn’t go up, but you know that controls pretty much useless got some chipping on the back, which holds your v um super damn well, but the edges right here on the side, pretty sharp. So it ain’t really comfortable jumping, but it holds your fingers. If you need, if you don’t care about sharpness or whatever or you got leathery hands, it’s going to do well, I, don’t mind it too much. So if you are it’s not a big deal, but if you can handle it, some engage in thing, but for the handle material they used pretty sure the same steel as a blade makes this knife really really heavy a lot more than it needs to be honestly, because the important thing for a knife for me for a fixed blade knife is to balance.
If you want this to be like a self-defense knife or woods, not the balance is like in the handle like 3/4, an inch back from the blade which makes cutting like really it feels weak honestly and then for a knife with this design. That’s just kind of a shame. I think it’s been really great. If the handles for a different material, I’m, pretty sure they’re removable, so I just might take them off because uh it makes the balance kind of wonky and not too great.
But you know, let’s move onto the blade here. Have some nice designs there cut that pretty cool bull on. If you can see that it’s got on both sides, 440 stainless, that’s button steel by the way for, for you see the use of the blade here, the blade design is pretty cool, I, don’t know. If you can see it it’s a channel recurve course you can see and a freaking blind what you are then sorry about that, but a katana recurve.
It’s got a drop right here now I like that, because it makes the point completely straight on from the handle here, makes thrusting very, very confident, very strong as well. So that’s pretty cool on the secondary edge here, for that tanto point makes, is that it goes and stuff pretty well. However, the grinding on here is pretty imperfect on the sides a little bit and if you, the angle here that leads to the secondary edge, it’s kind of high for the plank it doesn’t line up this size even worse.
That goes I would say like a quarter of an inch above the actual point, so it doesn’t line up. Well- and it makes it so that the angle here when you’re cutting is like wobbly I can say it makes cutting kind of awkward, doesn’t really bite as well as I think it was, but it definitely fling stuff everywhere. So you know I know it’s working well, but the edge could be a little bit better like straight and grinded. Now talking about the edge.
The initial sharpness is not too great out of the box, but that’s not a big problem. You can always repro file that yourself and it’s just for 40 C’s. It’s not going to be super difficult. The point here, pretty strong. You can see because of the thickness of the blade here and stabbed into some wood start frying, it laterally side to side. You know it took a little bit of a set and I’ll just see it. Try to bend it back to shape not straight yet, but it’s getting there but I’m happy that it bent and didn’t break because uh, you know, can’t really repair that, but a bend here, you can just bend it back over.
It’s going to be slightly weaker than normal or than before, but it’s for you, so you know it’s going to go into people pretty easily, doesn’t matter so yeah, that’s pretty damn good and also handsome, which is pretty important. But you know my biggest problem with the knife, though, is the weight and that’s a form of hold my heart and Richter products, all of them actually, especially with the sheet here, which doesn’t hold the blade that well, it makes it so I’m always afraid of it.
Falling on my pocket or not I get my belt because you know sure it’s check it for exist. Commune super you which is kind of a shame, because you know, despite the sheathing and keep looking and stuff like that, it’s surface perfect is quite well and I kind of like it, but for its weight and for what you get not amazing I mean, for example, I know this was not favored by the way, so I’m going to say that right beforehand, before I show you this my Sock’em alpha from micro tech from the same length of blade here you can see about five inches.
This thing is pretty light for its size. It’s also really thick. It’s just got another bevel in the back, so it looks a little thinner than it is the existing. His hoop is really good I’m. It fluffs well because again completely straight with that, it cuts quite well to you, because it’s got a belly that without super canal secondary tip there. So what surface purpose is quite well in the handle material is g10, so it keeps its weight down as well the sheet you know: high tax carbon fiber stuff, we’re not there because, like a $200 knife, this is my part hippie.
So not really a fair comparison, but I’m. Just saying like this is what a knife should feel like. If you want it to be a self-defense knife and I think the balance is like right, there should be, but the thing is that the blade is so light you you can kind of forgive for that, because it’s so spread out throughout the entire blade. Well, this one like it’s balance is like a little bit worse than that. But the big thing is that, because my handle is so heavy and disproportionate, it makes it feel awkward as well but kind of standard.
Not all of you have like 200 bucks to spend on a fold on a fixed blade knife. So let me just go back to this example here, which is the flat one-one-nine right here, she’s, not too great. If you wanted for a self-defense knife, if it just doesn’t not many ways to carry it, so it serves its purpose. It holds a knife. It saves on your belt and some of the light late at night. It’s not going to like flop around my stuff and hold it, of course, and this thing is one of my favorite knives, especially for its price.
It’s going to thrust really well, like I’ve tried it out, and this thing is really damn good at roasting. The fuel do they use here. A thing is just 440 may be wrong, maybe 420, but whatever it is. They tempered it well because this thing is durable for its thickness right here to the point like I thought: I was gonna be delicate, but now this thing holds up really. Well, it’s all just super sharp out of the box.
So if you’re not super, get at sharpening like some of some of the some of us honestly are, then this is a good choice for self-defense. Not if you just never use it, and when you do, you didn’t step it into a dude really easily. This would do that quite well. Not so the handle is super comfortable. Any there’s no like way to use this handle and make it uncomfortable. The only thing is it’s slightly slippery, so if it gets wet, you might fall out, but you know that’s not a huge problem for most go ahead.
I think then, of course about like a flared bottom. So if you want to hold your your hands quite well before it comes out, I think this is a good choice for a self-defense knife as well, especially because it’s pretty cheap, you can get it select around four to fifty dollars, depending on where you buy it, where you live and in business a split I, don’t know: what’s this is limited editions? Well, I, don’t think any of you can even buy it anymore, but don’t feel too bad.
It’s not too great I do like it. It looks really cool. It’s got some novelty to it because you know it says limited-edition. So not many people will have this knife, but I think I’m going to give them away. One of them I’m probably going to send us a gift, somebody and the other one. Maybe it’s somebody else. No, no I’m going to do that, but yeah these aren’t knives. I’d, really keep I’ve got a whole bunch of knives are a lot better, more collectible and all that stuff.
But you know, if you do have one of these don’t think you got cheated. It’s a pretty good knife, just the best tool. The most valuable tool is the one you have on you, so if you already bought this, then you’re set do don’t have to really buy anything else. If you’re satisfied with your product, then one of Who am I to tell you any different right. Well, I hope you guys have a great day. If you want me to review any another, not just put it on the comments below see you guys later.
Here, for another edition of something I got online, so I got this I did a review on this. Never strike match deal doohickey right there, and this I got with it thing was an extra couple, bucks or ten bucks, or something like that. It’s a Hoffman written richer blade which I love the weight. It’s pretty heavy compared to that other blade that I have it’s a very it’s. A heavy, very durable feel has the clip on it here, as you can see, and seeds called a Hoffman register.
Richter rich stir, rich tur hard to say that it has the pops out like that fold it back in they give you a good look at it: I’m blocking the Sun, because it’s very windy out here, I’m gonna, give you a quick look: it’s gonna be windy, but its Sun look in there. Yeah buddy get that beauty, but anyway, Hoffman Richter, sweet blade. Has these ridges for cutting tough outdoor material to make a shelter? Perhaps outdoor shelter? Has these three holes I? Suppose this for pic pulling out nail or something like that, give you some kind of leverage or maybe just maybe you can use these three holes as a booby trap and the wilderness to trap an animal or if you need to defend yourself against some bad people, I, don’t know Rambo, remember Rambo made all those booby traps, but anyway, I think that’s what those three holes could be used for very durable feels good.
In my hand, it has this clip right here. You can clip it somehow on your bug out bag or clip it to your person, somehow folds in very easily and pops out. Did you hear that I love the sound of that I love that sound, but you let that sound that blades make when they pop out watch Oh anyway, my name is dead. Prepper just wanted to do a quick review. This is my actually my third blade I’m building my knife collection and soon I will start building other collections, and I will share them with you on this blog post, but you never know never know when you might need a backup leg during a survival situation.
I know it’s windy. Bear with me I’m right out here in the middle of nowhere seems like, but you never know in a survival situation when you’re going to need backup blade. So why not just have several blades and knives on you hell, you might be able to barter some of those knives. Give them away, maybe give some away as presents Christmas present. I, don’t know where do you do with your blades? Is your business, but my name is Victor blade.
It’s too windy out here for me to continue and right now, I’m blocking the wind. So just wanted to do that quick review. It came with the ever strike match and that’s about it. So leave your thoughts and your comments below this video and oh [, __ ], everything’s blowing away anyway, it’s time for me to go. It’s windy out here and just wanted to do this quick review and talk to you soon. Dad prepper signing off long live the Republic.
Review of this knife, this is the Hoffmann Richter wolf fixed blade and you are at the we all juggle knives channel. By the way, we’ve got a lot of usage footage coming up, so the blade length on this is 4 inches. Your blade steel is 440, see the price tag on this was $30. I will include a link. It’s got some jimping on a thumb rest there. It has a large finger choil. It is an extra wide drop point: full flat grind: it’s got an extended tang I have some paracord on my handle, and I will explain why I did that later in the video it’s got a lanyard hole and that extended Tang can be used as a glass breaker, at least that’s what they say.
Alright, let’s do some stuff with this knife. So this first task you’re seeing I’m going to baton two parallel grooves into the piece of wood and then remove the intervening material. This is that same squared-off type of notch that I’ve shown in many different videos. It’s just a good little task. People want to see the knife doing things. I want to show it doing as many tasks as possible right, so this is a convenient little warm-up for us right.
But let’s talk about this brand Hoffman Richter, they seem to be a budget brand I tried to find some information on them. They do have a website. Their stuff is manufactured in China. I, guess that’s why the prices are low. This fixed blade was $30 budget or not I’m, going to review it seriously, I’m going to try to do a lot of stuff with it and put it to the test right. So after a little cleanup, there is the squared off notch that it made right, but Hoffman Richter seems to have some folders on Amazon that are like $10 I chose to review the fixed blade, because I can just do more with a fixed blade here.
It is making an easier type of notch. Just some more wood work right. They have some ten dollar folders that looked kind of interesting I will include a list of links of all their different stuff and you can just browse it at your leisure. So the way I found out about this knife is I was browsing, SE knives and she happens to have a knife. That’s around the same length as this there’s, my not yet, and yet another notch on the knotch.
Stick: alright, harvesting some bark, but as I was saying, s/he has a knife: that’s around this size, and that is also 440c right, but the SE knife was around a hundred and twenty-five dollars and then amazon with its like automatic suggestions. They flashed a picture of this knife and I said you know this is a thirty dollar knife. I should test it out for people because I know people have seen this and they want it.
They will want to know if it’s if it’s worth a try, so we will find that out. You know and the people that want made in the USA go ahead and buy the SC I mean I’m, not stopping you from spending. You know one hundred and twenty five dollars on 440c. If you really want to all right here, it is using it as a striker. That’s my Ferro rod. Those are some shavings I had from whittling and I also have some of that bark underneath them.
So this can be used as a striker. It wasn’t as efficient as a striker as what actually comes with the fire steel, just a separate striker, but some people want don’t want to carry anything extra. They want their knife to be able to do it all. So this can be used as a striker and it took a little hours. Pretty windy took a little while for the fire to get going, but hey what? What would a bushcraft video be without like some form of fire, not not that this is instructional or anything, but there are many Bush crafters out there and I I try to cater to them.
I mean I I, try to show them things. They wish to see alright here it is making some kindling not going to go too crazy with the baton. Hang those are pretty small pieces. It’s it’s a fairly short knife, so there’s only going to be a little bit sticking out so there’s a limit to the thickness of the pieces, but nonetheless you can make some kindling. If you wish to. If that’s important to you, there’s a little knot on the top piece of that piece of wood, as you see so, I just pounded it having it through that not so this knife could be a camp knife hunting knife field knife, probably not like a specialized bushcraft knife just because most bush crafters do not prefer that finger choil.
But you know if you’re using it as a camp knife, you might do some bushcraft of opportunity with a knife right so yeah, it’s basically a mid-sized outdoor, fixed blade, so they’re made kindling pretty well, it’s a pretty strong knife here it is slicing up an apple I did speed up this footage, trying to think of tasks. You might do. If you maybe were hiking backpacking, whatever I don’t know, would you carry an apple or some other fruit and maybe slice it up? I, don’t know maybe you’re going with your kids and you know they won’t eat it.
If you don’t, if you don’t slice, I, don’t know that’s why I don’t have kids they’re too damn picky now, just just kidding no I can’t I can’t have kids I lost parts in the war. No just kidding again. I was not in a war, but actually watching the news. The other night, I I’d, say there’s still time to be in a war for all of us it seems, but so there’s your apple slices and just add some peanut butter to that and you’ll be good for you’re bulking diet.
All right here, it is carving, does pretty well at the carving task and you see the slivers it makes, and you can use those for your tinder and yeah the outdoor tinder. No, not not that tinder you’re. Thinking of you, you promiscuous devil, now just kidding. But what are we making prison shank now because we’re not in prison freedom, shank, I, don’t know nothing really I just wanted you to see that it’s it came sharp enough to whittle with I actually did touch this up.
It came pretty sharp, but I made it sharper. I’m gonna show it cutting some paper, but I have to save that for later in the video, because, if I show the paper cutting early people just wig out and get triggered and they can’t take it- and they just have to tell me like it’s not for paper- and it’s like you know, cutting paper doesn’t prevent you doing a bunch of other stuff with it. But you know the these.
The the internet dwellers are not always the most reasonable. The most reasonable crowd. I, however, am very reasonable. Much like Hannibal Lecter I just have my lines that I will not cross and some that I will no I’m just kidding all right there. You go some wooden icicles upside down next task. Cutting some paracord I had some paracord left over from the cord that I used on the handle of this knife figure.
This is a typical task, maybe you’re going camping. You need to cut some paracord, maybe you’re in the field in the military, and you need to size some so yeah, this blade ship. You know the extra wide drop point. You’ll see that everywhere, and the reason is because when you have a drop point, the wider you make the blade the more belly the knife has, which then makes it useful for things like skinning and so forth.
All right here it is on some paper. This was before I cut the other stuff. So there you go now that was after a two minute, touch-up right, that is my Spyderco sharp maker. So out of the box, it needed a little bit of a touch-up, 2-minute touch-up, and then it could cut the paper. So you know they should have done that at the factory, but it was no big deal to do that. All right, stab test or stab demo I know what you want to call it, but put some wear and tear on that tip that poor log.
What did it do to you? It was born and, okay, that’s just to prove. Sometimes people don’t think you’re stabbing it hard enough. Well, I mean I can stab it hard enough that it’s wedged in there so tightly that you can pick up the whole freaking log and it will not. It will not fall off so yeah I mean I, think I stabbed it pretty pretty hard. You see that there yeah get it get in your hammer. Curls with the log I mean you know.
If you can’t go to the gym. He just just do that. Alright, this sheath or should I, say sheaths. You see that belt loop there it’s got a retaining strap. So that’s just a soft kind of cheap sheath, almost like an mtech sheath, alright, but it also comes with this sheath, which is a rigid sheath with eyelets and a belt loop. Now, with the original handle scales on it actually does not. The sheath will not hold it in with the original handle scales, but with my paracord on it the sheath actually works better than it originally did.
Ok, so it comes with two sheets, not the best sheets, but you do get two of them. Speaking of the handle scales. These are the handle scales that came with I removed them for two reasons: number one they were very heavy I mean I, don’t care about weight usually, but they were extremely heavy. It was uh, it was pretty crazy how heavy the knife was with them and also they were smooth even with the texture.
They didn’t give good traction right, so I replaced them with paracord. Of course you don’t have to do that if you like those handle scales, just use it with the scales. But let me warn you they are thick and they just made the knife like extremely heavy, like more heavier than any knife of this size that I’ve had before okay. So that’s the deal with the handle scales, so my final thoughts on this knife.
It has pluses and minuses, but all the minuses were definitely understandable. Given the low price $30 I do think. I got my money’s worth, but basically the sheaths were not that good I did choose to modify the handle for the reasons I gave and the initial the edge needed about two minutes of love before it was just up to basic standard, but overall I mean for $30 it’s a pretty good outdoor mid-sized, fixed blade.
You could definitely spend way more for the same steel, so yeah. It’s a good budget option well, like I, said that extra wide, drop-point full flat grind that that configuration appears again and again and again with every every brand is gonna, have their extra-wide drop point because it works, because it’s a useful configuration all right.

This has been. We all juggle knives, I’m out.
Hello, guys is the modern Bladesman with folding knife, so this is a single edged, liner-lock assisted opening folding knife and it cost me around I think twenty seven dollars to purchase and I actually bought two of these. This is the newer one and I had one that I got about a month or two ago which I gave away to a friend for free okay.
So let’s talk about this knife here it will focus first on the handle and let me just tell you this thing is heavy now, if you look here, extrange lean enough, these liners are milled for whatever reason, but the handles are stainless. Steel, probably same material as this thing right here, super heavy knife. Okay, the grip is comfortable um.
If you take off the pocket clip if you’re left-handed, if you’re right-handed it’s you know good enough, however, the pocket clip is forced right hand tip down carry so if you, if you would like tip up or if you’re left-handed you know this, isn’t it’s not gonna cut it for you. So what I did my old one is I just took off about a pocket clip because I don’t carry tip down or right hand, usually and I just left in my pocket, but it’s super heavy, so you’re gonna definitely feel that it’s got this glass breaker on the bottom here, which is also I, guess you can also use it as a lanyard hole, and you know it’s really sturdy I like it.
A lot it’ll, probably break a good amount of glass. With that weight that comes with this knife. The texturing on the handle is quite pretty it’s kind of like a wing texture and it’s pretty comfortable to hold again. If you take off the pocket clip right here, if you’re left-handed and the liner lock has some jimping on it. So it’s easy to disengage, but it’s quite thin.
I, don’t know if you can see that if you prepared with another knife, let’s see I, don’t know if you can tell in the camera, but this knife right here has about a thirty percent or 20 percent advantage in terms of liner thickness, but the reason why I have an issue with that is because the reason why I retired my previous knife, hoppin Richter, HR 15 it’s because the liner-lock went all the way to the right and it wouldn’t close unless I took both my hands and pushed it down like that.
But I couldn’t do it with one hand easily so I gave that away to my friend for free. You know: I’m, not gonna, sell him at broken knife, but so far with this knife, I’ve had it for about a week. I haven’t had that same problem, but I heard, like a lot of people, have that issue where the liner-lock pushes all the way to the right.
So I don’t know. Maybe it’s a common problem, not sure about that when it comes to the blade. It’s me about of 440c 3 75 inches long. So it’s a pretty pretty nice sized blade. It has a fuller here and three holes to decrease the weight. I guess it’s already a heavy heavy blade, but you know it looks cool at least it’s a half serrated blade here and that really diggin I.
Don’t really dig serrations. So it’s you know, that’s a personal thing! Some some of you may, like it I understand that it’s got the rest of its just flat. Grind saber grind all that stuff, so you would pretty nice edge. Oh not! Even though I said out of the box, it I would call it okay, sharp it can tear paper, but it can’t slice it.
So it can it’s on the average scale of like this price range of knives. Here, the thumb stud. It’s doesn’t have much friction, but you know it’s pretty nice if you don’t definite deploy. This is just opening, so it’s not gonna be hard to deploy. You can use the flipper here as well, but that’s not my preferred method of opening, but besides the liner, lock failure on the previous knife, there is another specific reason why I cannot use it, and that is what I said before is the weight.
Now. This is due to the stainless steel handles the hair. There’s a titanium code on it, which is actually adds to the look, looks really pretty, not sure if that’s gonna, add any weight, probably not probably just being paranoid here, most likely just these stainless steel handles. Let’s look at this weight here, but the scale here so you can see- and we got in eight point- six ounces, knife, folding knife- that’s that heavy, oh man, I better, be getting a lot out of that because um, let’s say you want a TC knife right.
This is an average one, not it’s not average, but it’s an average weight for an EDC of a knife that I’ve seen- and this is the SOG Trident. It’s got the it’s 3 75 inch blade as well. I think it’s just got some plastic handles, it might be. G10 I didn’t carry a check, but let’s see weight, 3, 7 ounces, so basically, three to four ounces is the normal EDC range.
That is an EDC knife. So EDC is not what this knife is supposed to. Do. You can see here that the blades are the same length, this one’s a little bit thinner. But let’s say you like this knife, because you want a aggressive, looking knife that has a pretty pretty strongly built. Well, if you want something strongly built, you can go to cold steel, and here I got a coal steel, broken skull, EDC knife, yeah, I, use it all the time.
It’s really lightweight. Let me show you exactly how lightweight three ounces three ounces for a heck of a lot of blade, um, look at the length of this baby right here. It’s long! It’s a pretty long blade, it’s a little bit thinner than I like, but it’s super light fits in the pocket super well, and you know there’s an also. You know you can move the switch the pocket clip from either side here it’s an important feature, especially if you want to attract some lefties and also it goes down really deep into your pockets.
So it’s a very nice night, but maybe you don’t want that either? Maybe you want a good self-defense knife, something that is going to be have that weight advantage? You know that extra cutting power that you get with that weight. Well, if you want some extra cutting power with weight, let me guide you to the cold steel XL Voyager.
Here. Look at that. That is a self defense. Not let’s see how much it weighs. Seven point: eight ounces, seven point: eight ounces! This is eight point six right. Let me show you the size difference here. Yeah this one is eight ounces lighter than that and the blade is huge. It’s got that cold steel triad, lock super strong, haven’t, had one fail ever I’ve had some liner locks fail.
I think liner locks are probably one of the weaker types right. The blade is C TS BD, one, listen, okay, steel! It’s pretty good! I! Think it’s a little bit better than us eight. In my opinion, it’s a and also that blade is handsome comes super sharp. That tip is gonna penetrate through any soft target. Along with that, it’s light for its size, and you can of course switch the final clip.
So why would you want this knife here? It’s so heavy. It’s heavier than all the knives I’ve showed you. Maybe the price. Okay, the price. Alright I can deal with that twenty-five dollars. An amazon said that its original price was 120. Bullcrap. There’s no worry I’d buy this for 120. That’s it! That’s not that’s not a fair price.
So maybe you want a $25 00 knife: how about the rat one? There you go! That is also a really cheap knife. I got this one for $22, actually and I’m, pretty sure you can getting cheaper depending on where you buy it from you can put the puck clip anywhere, basically any kind of care that you want. It’s got an 8 oz, 8 steel for the blade and it’s about 5 ounces.
So it’s on the heavier side. Yes, but it’s super cheap for what you’re getting comes. Super sharp can slice through paper like a breeze. It’s got a nice liner-lock here, it’s pretty thick won’t fail you. It’s got a nice thumb studs as well and cheaper that. So why would you get this knife? Maybe you want something super beefy in your hand, I don’t know, but you don’t get anything for the way here.
If I’m gonna I don’t care too much about weight. My opinion is, if you get some extra weight, that’s fine, but you gotta get something out of it, something like power, something like reach. You know something like good materials, yeah, I’m saying so: Hoffman Richter, HR 15, not gonna! Do it for me, but you know, that’s just my opinion, guys, that’s it for the review.
If you want me to review any other knife, just put it down in the comments below and I hope, you all have a great day.
