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 enhancement is wonderful. It has improved the ability to sharpen shorter knives with more accuracy and less hassle. No longer do you have to make adjustments and use unstable risers. It is also great for the larger knives as it provide greater stability. Thanks Edgepro.
A great addition works super well with the magnet system. I have been using Mr. Dale's system since late 2006. Nothing but praise here. It works. All the other "sharpeners" have gone away....
Works great, a worthwhile investment if you sharpen knives like the Spyderco PM2 or other knives where you commonly need to hold them at a bit of an angle to get the edge flush with the end of the blade table. If mine was lost o stolen I'd order another one the next day!
This guide works awesome, for knives that do not need to be moved across the table as you sharpen. Allows for precise and consistent tracking along the bevel. Great addition to already awesome product!
