The Turn Box family is a very stable and compact knife sharpening system.¬¨‚Ä† It works well in the kitchen and it quickly breaks down for storage in a drawer.¬¨‚Ä† The turn box family of knife sharpeners is also great for outdoorsmen on the go¬¨‚Ä†because it is lightweight and stores easily in a backpack.¬¨‚Ä† It only takes a few swipes to maintain an edge (a bit more if you have a really dull knife).¬¨‚Ä†
There are two pre-set knife sharpening angles in the wood block 20 degree & 25 degree
25 Degrees – This is used for most kitchen knives and provides a sharp, durable edge.
20 Degrees – This is used¬¨‚Ä†for those desiring a very sharp edge.¬¨‚Ä† Some examples would be for filet knives or cutting tomatoes.¬¨‚Ä† Lower degrees¬¨‚Ä†result in¬¨‚Ä†sharper knives, but require more regular maintenance.
This 2-Stage Knife Sharpening System features a hardwood turnbox with internal rod storage in the base, and four 5″ long alumina ceramic rods. (2 medium 600 grit grey rods, 2 fine 1000 grit white rods)
