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
  • Small, mobile and practical
  • Non-slip standing surface
  • Contoured holding surfaces

  Does a really good job of sharpening all my smaller knives, incredibly practical as it is easy to carry and stow away in backpack or pocket.

  In one word: Wow. To elaborate a little, Astonishment, has sadly been an infrequent visitor round these parts of late. That was until this little thing popped through the letterbox! It’s simply astonishing what it can do to your old blunties. Get one, (Gift one) You’ll not be sad you did. Just glad. And quite possibly, you’ll be fairly regularly astonished too. It turns Awful in Awesome!. Astonishingly good indeed. Thank you Ray.

  The product is small (about 3”) . It’s easy to use and quite effectively sharpens my knives.

  This is one of the few knife sharpeners that I've tried that actually works. It takes very little effort to get a good edge to a blade. I normally use a stone but this is a very good alternative. Highly recommended.

  A great and simple bit of kit that works well on sharpening dull blades. I purchased this to sharpen pen knives, but the kitchen knives are now very sharp too! Good delivered price, quick delivery and it's always nice to get post from Ray Mears.

  I have a number of knives, from a Condor Bushlore, to a couple of Moras, Swiss Army Knives and an old Leatherman. I am rubbish at sharpening them. The Moras and the Bushlore weren't too bad but the rest were dull. I had tried different methods of sharpening without much success. Enter the RWS Quick Sharp. A few strokes on the ceramic rods transformed each blade from dull to sharp in no time. These blades would not, prior to sharpening, cut paper. Afterwards, they breezed through it. I will say that a bit of honing and stropping will finish things off but the difference is astonishing. There is real bite to the blades now and they will again be properly useful. Even a very cheap, 40 year old souvenir penknife I bought on holiday as a boy now feels keener and is something I can use regularly. This sharpener is a terrific piece of kit and I have no hesitation in recommending it. Combined with free delivery and swift despatch time, I have to say that I am very pleased with my purchase.

  Thought I'd give this a shot for my Mercator K55K and based on the existing reviews for it, I tested it on all my kitchen knives. Amazing! Now they are all paper cutting sharp. What a different to smashing up tomatoes. Highly recommend.

  I bought one of these for myself, it was so good I bought another for a friend for Christmas. Pocket size and very good at what it does, which is to sharpen a normal blade, the ceramic part does this. To remove small nicks and breaks on the blade use the carbide part. It is small and light and very useful and handy.

  I didn't expect it to do what it says on the tin. Being a bit of a cynic. Silly me. A great piece of kit. Highly recommended. Every knife in my flat is now sharpened to a high standard.
