The Sharpening Kit is a one of the products I’ve designed I’m probably most proud of. It makes sharpening as easy and efficient as it gets due to its unique concept of interchangeable acrylic pads which make jumping through various grits a breeze. Because of the Interchangeable acrylic plates there is no need to discard the abrasive paper of the previous grit in order to go to the next one (See the video below). You can also choose to use one or both of their sides if you wish to add more grits in your sharpening routine. The wooden pad and the dowels are made from oak and they have been impregnated with refined linseed oil at 130º Celsius. The Sharpening Kit is designed and handcrafted in Sweden and it comes ready to use straight out of the box.

  • Solid Oak Pad with comfortable Finger-pull Grip (Including 2x Stainless Steel Pins & a non-slip bottom)
  • 4x Interchangeable Acrylic Pads
  • 6x Premium Quality Adhesive-Backed Abrasive Strips (43 x 170 mm) for the Acrylic Pads
  • 1x Kangaroo Leather Strip – Suede side (Comes on one of the Acrylic Pads)
  • 1x Oak 15 mm Strop Dowel Kangaroo Leather – Suede & Smooth – Hand-stitched (15 x 245 mm)
  • 1x Green Stropping Compound Cube
  • 1x Oak 15 mm Dowel for Hook Knife Sharpening
  • 6x Premium Quality Adhesive-Backed Abrasive Strips for the Oak dowel (50 x 110 mm)

If you like to buff your blades on leather, after stropping on suede with polishing compound, you probably want to add to your order an extra acrylic pad and an extra kangaroo leather strip (Smooth Side)

The tool roll in the image is not included. You can purchase the tool roll separately here.

Extra dowels for sharpening hook knives and extra abrasive paper for the dowels

Extra Acrylic pads and extra Abrasive paper for the acrylic pads

Please note that occasionally, we might have to swap grits with whatever is in stock at the time of the order.
Note: The premium adhesive backed abrasive we offer has been throughly tested and won’t leave any adhesive residue on the acrylic. We cannot although guarantee that the same applies to other brands of self-adhesive abrasive paper. Please test a small piece of your abrasive on the acrylic first. Do not use nail polish or other chemicals to clean the acrylic pad.

    A great sharpening system. Easy to use and no mess to clean up after. The adhesive papers does not leave any residue on the acrylic pads witch is nice, and the wooden block is clean and well made. A tip is not to buy to few acrylic plates, it makes the sharpening experience even more satisfying with more interchangable plates👌 The dowels work great as well, and the overall look of the system makes you want to keep it out on the livingroom table all the time.

    What separates this from other systems is the multiple interchangeable acrylic pads. And this is where it’s brilliance lie. Here you don’t need to take on and of every grit paper on the same block while sharpening, which is extremely practical and clever considering that quality sandpaper actually holds up to at least 2 sessions before wearing out. At least with regular tool steel. It might not with super steels, but this is rarely found on sloyd tools. In any case it is great to avoid cleaning and stripping on and of all the time.

    The system as a concept I think is perfect. However, there is one small draw back: the wooden block is just tiny bit narrow, which can cause a slight tilting (especially if one inserts the included non-slip pads) when you get to the belly part of the blade. With a little technique and practice this can be avoided, though. And if you clamp it, it is no problem at all. So, all in all, this is a truly great product, which I highly recommend!

    I have used alot of sharpening systems for my collection of knifes. But i always go back to sandpaper and oil. To have it all in one system like this, to easy change between the grits makes the sharpening process fast and so much more easy.

    But there is one thing with this system that stands out even more, the leather used for stropping! It is amazing quality and strops your knifes back to sharp better than any other strops i have used.
    Another great thing about this system, you can easy and cheap buy new parts for it.

    The best sharpening system I have come across.
    I was searching a long time for something like this.
    The two biggest benefit for me are
    1) the size of this system, you have everything you need in such a compact and transportable size.
    No need of multiple wooden blocks with sandpaper and strops.
    2) The quality of the used materials. Especially the leather strops (I would recommend also getting an additional smooth strop)
    I use them daily for the and my knifes have never been sharper in a shorter time.
    Well worth the money, would definitely buy it again
