The KME Axe Sharpener Kit, sharpening system for axes is a complete sharpening system that was specifically designed to sharpen axes. The magnetic base snaps firmly onto the axe after which you can determine the desired angle. The base can be rotated to make sure you can also easily sharpen the other side of the axe. Even axes with a convex grind can easily be sharpened with the included bent guiding rod! With the sharpening system you can sharpen in a minimal angle of 17 degrees up to a maximum angle of 30 degrees.
The sharpening system comes in a solid but compact case. These cases come in various colours. We, however, don't influence the colours that are supplied. As such chance will determine which colour you will receive!
How to use:
Step 1: Place the magnetic base on the back of the axe.
Step 2: Turn the guiding rod into the sharpening stone holder.
Step 3: Slide the guiding rod through the white eye of the magnetic base.
Step 4:Determine the right sharpening angle on the magnetic base.
Step 5: Place the desired sharpening stone in the sharpening stone holder.
Step 6: Adjust the stop in the right place, to make sure the holder won't fall of the edge.
Step 7: Sharpen over the entire width of the edge and determine the sharpening angle again if you don't sharpen the entire edge of the axe.
Step 8: As soon as you have sharpened the entire edge, you can also sharpen the other side of the edge.
Step 9:Repeat the sharpening process with a finer sharpening stone until you have used the finest sharpening stone.
Step 10: You can also finish the axe with different Lapping films or KME Strop. To make sure the axe will shine again!
