Product Description

The Apex Model Edge Pro knife sharpening kit is a patented Apex system that will sharpen any size or shape blade (up to 3 ½” wide), including serrated knives. With an Apex knife sharpener, 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. Our water stones have been custom formulated to free you from messy, gummed-up oil stones. They last a long time and are inexpensive to replace. The Edge Pro Apex 4 Kit will remove far less metal than electric sharpeners or grinders, eliminating wavy edges and adding to the life and performance of your knives. Try this Edge Pro knife sharpener kit today!

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, and 24 degrees and infinitely in between.

Manufactured from the highest quality materials in Hood River, Oregon, US.

I’ll be honest, I thought $250 was a bit pricey at first. However, you get what you pay for. I am terrible at freehand sharpening so I gave the Edge Pro a try. There’s a bit of a learning curve, but by my third try I had a pocket knife that was sharp enough to shave my beard off, lol! I like to finish mine off with the 1000 grit stone, then use my leather strop with the green compound. Razor sharp, with an edge you can see your reflection on.

9 or 10 knives sharpened so far and I’m very happy with the Apex 4 kit and with the help provided over the phone. If you are like me, you may have some knives that have been sharpened incorrectly by hand or were just sharpened so many times that the blade got thick near the edge, I ended up using the coarse grit (120) stone quite a bit to correct for past sins and to thin worn blades (described in the instructions).

This thing is just what I needed. Gettin a little older and a touch arthritic in my hands. Been sharpening by hand for years, but now it hurts after a couple of minutes of freehand whetting. Glad I bought the Edge Pro. I was skeptical, as I had tried lesser (cheaper) products in the past. By the time I got through with the second knife, I was back online ordering more stones from Edge Pro, for replacements if I ever manage to wear these out. I am proud to be able to get a knife scary sharp freehand, now I can do it pain-free and very quickly with this tool. Thanks, guys!

I recommend this Apex 4 Kit! I have been sharpening for many years using the Tormek grinder, partly as a business. I also use a 1×30 belt sander with the Tormek jigs but on knife blades it´s still real easy to end up with dips or uneven edges. The Apex has many things going for it; it´s really portable and its clean – no noise, no dust, no burned edges. Ridgid stones are much easier to control than a loose sanding belt at speed. If you pay attention and use the supplied cloth there is also very little mess. It´s fast enough to be efficient but slow enough to give excellent control of the edge. Major reshaping is perhaps still best done on powered equipment, but normal sharpening is a joy on the Apex. The edges get SO sharp. I can get hair popping edges with either of my systems but using the Apex is by far the most enjoyable and gives the most even edges. I doubt anyone would let me use the belt sander in their kitchen spewing grit and dust everywhere, but the Apex can be used in the living room. The support and instructions are top notch!

I have used this for a little over a year, and this is the only sharpening system I have found that I can take a dull knife and make it scary sharp. I have always been able to touch up sharp knifes but with this you can take a knife from drag across your hand dull to filet paper sharp.

Excellent system! This is the best sharpening system I have ever tried! You will not be disappointed!

I brought the product from a local Finnish reseller and I have to say that the product exceeded my expectations. It is very easy to use and I was able to sharpen my knives to hair splitting sharpness during the first time I used the product. And I am quite novice when it comes to sharpening even though I can perform free hand sharpening. The product is expensive, but it does deliver what it promises. Good product.

Love this thing!! I "Had" a few hunting and fishing knives that to say the least were difficult to sharpen. With the Edge Pro system I can easily put an edge that is "Scary" sharp on all of them!

Wow! I received my new Apex system as a gift and I’ve been working with it for a couple of days. After watching Ben’s video over and over and over I finally dove right in with a knife that had not been sharpened in a while. I’m amazed at how easy the system is to use but more amazed at how well it works! I am a culinary student and have lots of old and new knives. I have a long way to go before I am 100% confident in what I am doing, but so far I am really impressed. I will be recommending this to my school and my chef instructors. Once I get better at it I will take it to school and do a demo for them. Thanks Ben for a great product!

After a long journey of making knifes worthless and many "This is the one" sharpening systems I found Apex 4. The unit allows me to put the ind of edge on my knifes I have always wanted to. Easy to use and well made. I now hand out band aids with the knifes I sharpen for people. Enough research on the internet and you will find a great system
