Slide Guide (Apex Model)

Adding to cart… The item has been added


The Slide Guide gives you 2 points of contact on the knife. This improves blade stabilization and allows quicker, more repeatable blade placement. One piece extends from one edge of the blade table to the other, while the center piece slides back and forth independently and can lock in to position to accommodate a wide variety of blade shapes and sizes. It works well by itself, but when combined with a magnetized blade table it makes sharpening on the Edge Pro knife sharpener easier than ever before.  The Slide Guide is machined from 6061 T6 aluminum, and has a .002" thick hard anodized coating to protect it from wear and tear over time. A high quality accessory to add to your knife sharpening kit and arsenal of sharpening supplies.

It’s primary use is for blades that will be laid in one position and will not be moved while being sharpened.

We make them in 2 sizes. One for the Apex knife sharpener model, and one for the Professional knife sharpener model.


*There can be some minor color variation from one part to the next.

    This works perfect. Especially on knives like the pm2 since it's odd shaped

    To me this slide guide add on is really great. It's like it was always meant to be. The knife has a solid connection to the base. With the magnet the blade sticks like super glue. SOOOOO much easier to layout and sharpen unusual and simple blades. Great add on!

    Wow! What a difference this guide makes. The clever design provides instant, repeatable positioning that, once set, works on both sides without further adjustment. When combined with the new retractable magnet, you can just about sharpen without holding the knife. Highly recommended.

    After 20+ years using the Edge Pro I didn't think sharpening could get any better. Then the Slide Guide for my Apex was delivered. Installation, easy peasy. Adjustment, super simple. The Slide Guide, when used in conjunction with the Magnet attachment, has taken my sharpening to a whole new level, and I couldn't be happier! I can absolutely recommend the Slide Guide as a must have item. It is a great device that works as intended and is well worth the price. You won't be disappointed.
