The Benchmade Edge Maintenance Tool 50030 is a practical sharpening system you can use to maintain your knives on the road. Developed by Benchmade in cooperation with the sharpening experts from Work Sharp.
The Benchmade Edge Maintenance Tool is enhanced with a 6.8 cm ceramic sharpening steel. Both sides are enhanced with 'guides' that help you maintain the right sharpening angle. As a result you can sharpen all your knives with a 20 degree angle per side. If you have sharpened the entire edge you continue with the strop. Here you can also find these guides, but exactly the other way around. After all, you strop the other way. Benchmade does not list a grain size, but the ceramic sharpening steel is very nice.
You use the Benchmade Edge Maintenance Tool to sharpen Benchmade pocket knives, but also other knives. You can hold it in your hand to sharpen it as such, but you can also open it and place it flat on the table. The Benchmade Edge Maintenance is enhanced with a pocket clip. As such you can carry it in your pocket, even though you can also hang it from a backpack. In a MOLLE loop, for instance.
