The RWS Quick-Sharp Knife Sharpener is a one-stop sharpening kit, ideal for use both in the field and at home. It features both carbide and ceramic shears, allowing you to take your knife from dull to razor sharp in just minutes.

Simple, quick and very effective, the RWS Sharpener features two proven sharpening systems, meaning that even badly damaged blades can be made sharp again. The carbide set of shears can be used first for basic sharpening, while the ceramic shears are used for finishing. Its compact and ultra-light design makes it easy to pop into your rucksack or belt pouch when heading out for the day. Additionally, it can of course be used around the home for kitchen knives and other tools.

Please note that the instructions provided with your sharpener will be written in German only. Therefore, we have translated the instructions for you here. To use, position the Quick-Sharp on a flat, firm surface and pull your knife through the Carbide shears at a 90 degree angle to the sharpener, maintaining a light pressure as you go. Once the required result is achieved, turn the Quick-Sharp over and pass the blade through the ceramic shears to put a fine, finishing edge to your knife. Non-slip rubber inserts on the top and bottom panels help to keep the sharpener in place.

  • Carbide shears for coarse grinding
  • Ceramic shears for fine grinding
  • Weight: 52 g

  Pretty nifty, put a new edge on a blunt blade with a nicks in it in about 5 minutes, the carbide fair rips metal off in no time and the ceramic cleans the edge nicely. While you can hold it with your hand I found it way more effective clamped to a bench, but just for quickly using the ceramic on an already sharp knife it's fine holding it.

  This is an excellent little tool. It's very compact, robust and does the job. Like others I suspect, I sharpened every kitchen knife I could lay my hands on and I was really surprised at how quickly it brought them back to a decent sharp edge. It'll be my go to knife sharpening tool from now on. Others may want an even finer edge so stropping but my knives tend to be somewhat used and abused so this will do the job for me.

  Great sharpener! I typically like to sharpen my knives with a series of wet stones but sometimes you just don't have the time. Run your blade through this a few times and run it over a small high grit stone a few times and your edge is back to razor sharp in less than a few minutes.

  Great little sharpener! The ceramic side creates a scalpel sharp edge with just a few strokes.

  Never knew these things existed. Tested it on my Carbon Hultafors Bushcraft knife. Got rid of all the niggles, on the Carbide slot. Took a good 60 strokes though, as I had about three tiny chips on my blade edge. Then moved onto the ceramic side for a fine finish. The tip edge can also be done with relative ease. You just smoothly and consistently continue as You would on the straight part of the blade, but with slight more care and attention to the pressure you apply. Perfect. Super fast delivery time also. Will be getting lots of use.
