The Edge Pro Apex 1 knife sharpener kit is a patented wet stone sharpening system that will sharpen any size or shape blade (up to 3 ½" wide), including serrated knives. Knives can be sharpened at exactly the same angle every time, making re-sharpening so fast you will never work with a dull blade again. The Edge Pro Apex stones in our wet stone sharpening kits have been custom formulated to free you from messy, gummed-up oil stones. They last a long time and are inexpensive to replace. The Apex Model Edge Pro Sharpening System will remove far less metal than electric sharpeners or grinders, eliminating wavy edges and adding to the life and performance of your knives.
The Apex removes nicks and dings without distorting the knife edge. It creates no heat, preserving the temper of your knives. It sets up in seconds on any smooth surface. No power required and comes with a convenient carrying case. Requires no maintenance other than routine cleaning.
Patented Knife guide system does not clamp the blade, so you can sharpen any length or shape blade up to 3 ½" wide. Adjustable sharpening angles, from 10, 15, 18, 21, 24, and 27 degrees and infinitely in between.
Manufactured from the highest quality materials in Hood River, Oregon, US.

Absolutely the best sharpening system I have found, and IÕve tried many. I donÕt need to search any more. For first time sharpening of a knife I start with the coarse diamond, which cuts fast to get the edge at the right angle. For everything after that I use just the 220 and then the 400. I bought finer stones, but donÕt use them. I think I will be buying the super fine diamond for ceramic knives. I have a few, and they have been disappointments so far. If I can get them sharp I will be particularly happy.
Just purchased an Apex after using a friend's "clone" he purchased off e-bay. While the designs of both may be fundamentally similar, the performance and quality of both materials and construction are world's apart. The "clone's" stones do more harm than good (plastic backing instead of aluminum), the plastic used is fragile and brittle, and the parts don't move smoothly and consistently. The real Apex is a precision tool that, with care, will last a lifetime.
I purchased this several months ago and love it. Perfect control of edge angle. I find that resetting the angle is often needed for my older, field sharpened knives, and the knives of my friends, as we have "cheated" many times with our hand sharpening technique, resulting in a progressively more blunt edge. I recommend the coarse stone (120 grit) to reset the edge, but even a coarse stone takes a long time unless it has been freshly cleaned. The silicon carbide stone cleaning process is quick, and worth doing for a clean fast sharpening job. Once the edge angle has been properly set, it's nothing to keep a sharp and beautiful edge.
I purchased the Edge Pro Apex many years ago. It works exactly as advertised. I would highly recommend it.
