Benchmade Edge Maintenance Tool

The Edge Maintenance Tool is a collaboration between Benchmade and Work Sharp.

The tool incorporates a ceramic rod, which can be rotated 360 deg as it is worn down, as well as a leather strop to finish the edge.

The device incorporates built-in angle guides for a consistent bevel while using the ceramic hone.

It also features a pocket carry clip.

  1. This is a neat concept. Like it a lot.

    Too bad it’s Benchmade.

      Any elaboration on what you dislike about the brand?

        He’s probably referring to Benchmade helping a local PD dispose of seized firearms that were required to be destroyed according to local laws/procedures. Just ignorant flat earth type stuff… but about 2A.

          Most likely it is the political donations and not the cutting up of guns.

            Might be the people who don’t understand that if you don’t donate you don’t get to spend time with your reps to influence them.

            Bingo! The husband and wife owners of BM Knives gave contributions to democrats- two of whom are VERY anti-2A- Sen. Patty Murray, and Ron Wyden. There’s NO explaining that away.

              You really don’t want to go down this rabbit hole. Sometimes, ignorance is bliss.

              The very fact that you’re participating in the Internet means that you are funding Democrats. On multiple levels. It’s inescapable.

    This looks nice and I like the concept, but I have a word of caution depending on what kind of steel you intend to sharpen with it. I have a few ceramic rod sharpening systems and a fine ceramic won’t do too much to something really hard like a spyderco in S110V. It sharpens up my softer emerson 154cm steel very easily. Just something to keep in mind. I have spent a lot of time sharpening various steels and on some, it’s just better to use a diamond stone.

    Obviously, if your edge is still very nice and not all torn up, this would be fine for a touch up. If you have wrecked your edge, and need to regrind a fresh one, this probably is not the tool for that. Best of luck.
