Initial Sharpening



For the initial sharpening of dull blades, keep the blade in the sharpener FLAT against the Blade Guide. Use a back and forth, up and down sawing motion to quickly create an edge. Don’t worry about sharpening the tip yet; the next (final sharpening stroke) will get the tip sharp. This motion is only needed on dull knives or hard steel knives. Do this 30-40 times (more for really dull knives or harder steel knives).

Final Sharpening



For final and touch-up sharpening, draw the blade in a downward motion completely through and out of the sharpener, keeping the blade flat against the Blade Guide. Do this 10-15 times, or until you have achieved flat bevel from the heel to tip. Hard steel blades might require another 10-15 strokes. Once you have created a flat bevel on both sides of your knife, this is the only motion required to resharpen your knife. Resharpening only requires 5-15 strokes depending on dullness and blade steel.

Blade Guide adjustment

Adjust the Blade Guide depending on the thickness and style of your blade to ensure an even bevel on both sides of the blade. Most Pocket knives and kitchen knives can be sharpened at the middle of the three settings.

Setting the "V"

Use the “V” adjustment knobs a & b to align the intersection of the hone rods. For wedge blades this intersection should be adjacent to the Blade Guide. Setting for parallel blades should be a small distance from the Blade Guide depending on the thickness of the blade.



Most home sharpeners actually destroy your knives. It may seem like you are giving the blade a fine edge but in reality you are tearing it to pieces. A well-made knife is a long-term investment for many people, and, whether you are in the kitchen, fishing or hunting, you want to protect that blade for as long as possible. Using normal home sharpening systems often tear, shred and maul the fine edge of a knife.


To truly sharpen a blade correctly, and hone it to a razor edge, is a skill that has been best left to the experts in the field for many years. Warthog wanted to give people at home the ability to give their knives a professional edge without having to take it to an expert. Taking the skills from these craftsmen, Warthog has created something truly exceptional: a range of patented diamond sharpeners that give your knives an unmatched edge.



The secret to getting a perfect knife edge is to maintain a constant angle between the blade and the sharpener. This is almost impossible to do by hand and most sharpeners try to solve this problem with clamping devices. But setting up the sharpener and clamping the blade in place takes a lot of time.

Warthog’s patented system ensures that your knives get the same fine edge, every time and without a time consuming set up.


For over 10 years Warthog Blade Sharpeners has been manufacturing and exporting high quality diamond knife sharpeners. Warthog was established in 1999 with the goal of creating an innovative world-first knife sharpener that delivered better results than any competitor on the market..

Treat your blades with the respect and care they deserve. We have conducted extensive research into various types of blade sharpeners and the results may shock you. Microscopic photos of edges show just how much damage traditional sharpeners can do. If term care and blade maintenance is your priority, only have one choice – Warthog.

 The Warthog difference

The blade edge, and only the blade edge, is honed with a Warthog Sharpener. You get a consistent edge with no damage to the edge itself or the transition between the edge and blade-body. Your sharp edge lasts much longer and there is no deterioration of the blade; this means you can count on that blade for many years to come.
