Puts a quick edge on knives, scrapers, drawknives, and turning tools. Touches up chisels and plane blades. Even works superbly on gardening/agricultural tools and axes.

One side of the Sharpener is a 1-3/16" long carbide piece with an internal 75° "V". Simply stroke using modest pressure,and you'll feel it producing a sharp edge immediately. The other side is a round carbide piece, diamond-ground in a faceted helicoidal pattern. This pares off any tiny burr for a super-finished edge. The cast aluminum handle is a reference edge, and keeps your fingers safe.

Covering the complete range of burnishing work, the Burnisher has a round, specially polished smooth carbide on one side, and a round-radius triangular profile on the other, which will turn a cutting burr ultra-fast. Works on HSS turning tools. Comes in a synthetic leather case with complete instructions included for both. Made in France.

  • Solid Carbide Sharpener and Burnisher

    Richard, 6/13/2016 I bought the combo two piece set containing a double insert carbide sharpener (CS) and a separate carbide burnisher (CB, also called "CARBUR 2" in its instruction sheet ). The website describes both tools and their carbide inserts. Additional clear instructions are included in the plastic envelope package with each device. The carbide sharpener (CS) had a 7.5 inch x 14 inch two sided professionally done fold out brochure with instructions and pictures. For the carbide burnisher (CB) the instructions were an 8 1/2" x 11 1/2" B&W mostly legible but poor quality, distorted, xerox type copy of a copy of a copy...., text only. The CB/ CARBUR 2 instructions deal principally with its use to precisely create and maintain the fine lateral burred edges on a woodworker's "card scraper", typically used instead of sandpaper. The CS came with a TAN leather open ended pouch where as the CB came in a DARK BROWN leather pouch. With some practice you will develop techniques for using the CS to sharpen and de-burr edges. You can feel the CS carbide cutting off the knife's edge steel and see the small steel tiny fragments removed. The CS's round carbide piece, diamond-ground in a faceted helicoidal pattern is then used to remove the thin burr remaining on the knife edge. Instructions say to move the rounded cutter over the fixed knife but I found moving the steak knife over the faceted helicoidal round cutter to be more effective in some cases. Read and understand the instructions to avoid damaging your knifes. I sharpened a set of stainless steak knives (with serrated edge on distal 1/3 of blade). Sequentially using both carbide insert sides of this CS, I was able to re-sharpen and de-burr a fine edge (single side bevel ) on the knives in a few minutes each. The CS cutting edge followed the serrated contours sufficiently to sharpen their knife edges as well. The CARBUR 2 contains two carbide inserts. One is a polished round insert and one is a rounded edge triangular insert. They are used to creat burred edges where as the CS round insert is used to remove burrs.
  • Good Choice w./Question

    Carl Guzowsky, 1/21/2014 The sharpener works very well once you learn the proper angle to hold it at. The burnisher is the question. I'm not sure what/how to use it. I tried it on a couple knives but could detect no difference.
  • Great Handy Sharpening Burnishing

  • Outdoor tools best friend!

    CJ, 3/16/2013 Sharpener is perfect to use on cutting tools with tightly curved edges; i.e. loppers, pruners and brush hooks. It is light in weight, and will remove material faster than coarse whetstones. Very convenient for sharpening while working outdoors.
  • Best Sharpener

    Rufus Turner, 6/29/2011 I bought this tool to clean up the bevels on my copper and zinc etching plates. I start the process with a file. This tool works great, and I am using the file a lot less. My Son got it and sharpened every knife in the house. He has all sorts of things to sharpen knifes with but says this is the best. I now use it on my knifes. I am an artist and I use and cut a lot of carboard in my art. So my knife blades get dull real fast. This sharpener makes easy work of getting a deadly sharp knife in just moments.
  • Very sharp sharpener!

    LenK, 1/1/2011 Bought two sets of these carbide sharpeners for Christmas presents (and one for yours truly). They work great! I've sharpened all our kitchen and pocket knives quickly and easily. Haven't used the burnisher yet. Mildly disappointed in the size of the tools, they look bigger in the photos.
  • Best Sharpener Period!

    Dave Berger, 12/9/2009 I also bought the Carbee (pocket sharpener) at same time. Seems that the tools are pretty much identical, with the difference being the carbee is easy to carry, but a little less versatile due to its size. I love the Carbee, and I look forward to using this larger one on my shop chisels. I think its longer handle will provide more leverage, and work like the carbee on larger tools! Top notch tool worth every cent! So much easier than draging out my waterstones!
  • Handy tools

    JimT., 4/19/2009 Effective and efficient - not something often said about sharpening systems, but these really work, and are handy to keep near at hand with their sheaths. Good buy from my perspective.
  • Carbide Sharpener

    Margaret, 4/13/2009 This is my favorite tool of all. I use it to sharpen everything, the hatchet, kitchen knives,even a little cupon tool. It's easy to use and fast.
