SHARPENERS AND SHARPENING SYSTEMS
It is always important to keep your knives sharp. A well-honed edge doesn’t just mean better results with less hard yakka. It’s also important for hygiene when you’re out bush. The good news is, you don’t have to pay hundreds for a knife sharpener at an Auckland megastore. You can order one online for a great price right here at Top Gear.
Whether you're at home using your sharpening system or when you are out in the bush or elsewhere, you need a small knife sharpener to keep your knives sharp. Taking a few minutes to keep your blade razor-precise will save you time and effort in skinning, gutting, filleting and butchering. However, you don’t need to worry about feeling like you’re carrying the whole kitchen sink in your pack. Our range of knife sharpeners for NZ and wider Australasian hunters and fishers includes plenty of compact, relatively lightweight models. Some of these sharpeners even fit in your pocket. In addition to standard chef-style designs, there’s the Eze-Lap Diamond Pocket Sharpener that’s so light and compact, your biggest hassle will be making sure it’s actually in the bag. Accusharp also offer an interesting selection of contemporary designs such as the 2-Step Knife Sharpener which fits on a keychain or carabiner.
There are plenty of different surfaces and materials to try out as well, depending on your preferences and needs. Try our diamond, carbide, Arkansas, ceramic and other sharpeners. Industrial-grade diamond is well known for its toughness, whilst carbide is the high-tech option. If you have any questions or need help choosing the right one, you can contact us.
