Pocket Knife Sharpener
A good pocket knife sharpener is often hard to find, especially if you’ve first tried to do it in stores. These small items could be anywhere and a lot of the time the sellers don’t even know where they are. That’s one reason why we decided to put this article together.
The second one is also to suggest full-sized sharpening systems that are made to get great results on pocket knives. Because pocket knife sharpeners should mostly serve you on the road, and if you want to truly get a great cut on your pocket knife, you should give it the full-treatment at home with one of the best sharpeners around.
But then the tricky thing is that some knife sharpeners out there are poorly made for pocket knives. The Presto 08800 EverSharp we tried had a bit of trouble taking some of our pocket knives into its slots, and we can already imagine a few customers being frustrated by that.
So, as you will notice, we made picks of knife sharpeners that were “open” in the way that they were conceived so that your pocket knives can fit, no matter if they’re thick or small.
Smith’s PP1 Pocket Pal Multifunction Sharpener
If you’re looking for a pocket sharpener that you can carry anywhere with you, and that’s actually smaller than your pocket, this model from Smith’s will be perfect. Smith’s is one of the most trusted brands when it comes to any sharpening system, so we put our trust in this one and we weren’t disappointed.
The 2190 mostly positive customer reviews on Amazon had to do with our choice as well. People simply say this little sharpener does wonders.
It’s a little system on its own, with one slot in carbide blades and another in ceramic stones for the usual coarse/fine steps. Who knew you could get a good knife sharpening for under $7.99? Getting a knife sharpening in the woods is pretty much an unbeatable feeling!
Spyderco Tri-Angle Sharpmaker
The Spyderco has to be the greatest pick for pocket knife sharpening. It’s a full system, but it’s still portable in a small box.
The way the Spyderco works with pocket knives is great. The system works so that you have to make the strokes yourself left and right, and you hold your knife normally, so it won’t feel weird whatsoever.
It’s one of our top picks as knife sharpener period, so if you want to get one of the best sharpenings around for your pocket knife, this is where it’s at right here.
Also, I wouldn’t say that pocket knife owners are generally crazy about kitchen knives and all that, so the extra instructions that come with the Spyderco will come in handy. It’s an extremely well-presented kit for both experts and beginners alike and you will know exactly what to do with your knives as you read the manual or watch the DVD.
The Spyderco feels and looks like a pocket knife sharpener in a way, and it’s definitely one of our top picks.
AccuSharp 001 Knife Sharpener
And the last pick we have for you is the Accusharp 001 Knife Sharpener. Just like the Smith’s PP1 Pocket Pal Multifunction Sharpener, the Accusharp 001 is a small and cheap sharpener, but it’s more of the type you would keep in your kitchen drawer.
While you cook, you will be able to keep all your knives razor sharp and renew the ones on which the blade has gotten dull.
It’s a great model and it’s easy to use, although it’s not exactly one you want to carry in your pocket to sharpen your pocket knives. But it will still make a great job on them. Customer reviews reported no problem in capability with pocket knives.
There can only be one winner
We were really happy with what the Spyderco could do to our pocket knives at home, but the Smith’s PP1 Pocket Pal is simply the best in its category. It looks cool, it’s the most portable and our blade cuts great thanks to the sharpening technology from Smith’s.
We were happy to carry a mini-size knife sharpener from one of the best companies out there, and for the price, there really isn’t much else to say but “Wow”.
