Because the bar is machined of hardened steel, like the outrigger of a canoe, it will wear very slowly.
The Sharp Skate is a unique honing jig allowing you access to the fundamentals of side sharpening. It allows you to choose a precise angle to set your edge onto the stone and stick with it.
Our blade addition has 12 custom machined parts, the Sharp Skate is a high precision honing and sharpening mechanism milled from aircraft-grade aluminum, stainless steel, and brass. The Sharp Skate 4-blade addition is the ultimate evolution of the Skate and the greatest revolution in side-sharpening.
Sharp Skate can be hung over the bar of a Tormek grinder...
