Did you know?
Contrary to common belief, sharp knives are safer than dull ones. Dull knives require more force to cut, increasing the risk of slips and accidents. Sharp knives, on the other hand, cut smoothly and are less likely to cause injuries.

One more thing!
A knife that is regularly sharpened will last longer than a knife that doesn't receive the necessary TLC. Don't believe us? Google it!

Gustav Piek from Braaiholics - avid foodie, braai enthusiast and regular contributor to Khakibush magazine recently wrote an independent long-term review on one of our products, the V-Sharp Classic II.

This is what he had to say!

You wouldn't buy a car without a warranty or after-sales service, so why would you for your knife sharpener?

Imagine you buy a new vehicle and one day when it breaks the manufacturer tells you, sorry we don’t sell replacement parts, you will have to buy a new one. Now why would you be satisfied with no after-sales service for your knife sharpener?

We sell all the replacement parts and can service your old Warthog sharpeners - even the very first model we launched over 20 years ago.

It doesn't matter what you are cutting, always make sure you wash your knives, before you sharpen them.

Food and other particles, transferred from a dirty knife, will over time clog the microscopic grooves between the diamond stones and render your sharpening efforts useless.

So to get the longest possible lifespan from your diamond rods, always clean your knives before you sharpen them. To clean the diamond stones, wash them with hot water, an old toothbrush and dishwashing liquid.

If you need new rods, get them here!

The Curve is an incredibly easy-to-use, high-quality sharpener for quick action. With non-adjustable rods, all you need to do is keep your blade flat against the Guide and let the sharpener do the rest.

The unique curve in the Diamond Rods maintains a 25° angle throughout the entire blade. Spring-loaded Diamond Rods keep equal pressure on each side while pulling the blade through.

Most knife sharpeners don’t allow you to adjust the angle at which you sharpen a knife. With a Warthog A4, Classic II or Xtreme Edge, you decide the angle at which you want your knife to be sharpened.

Remember, the smaller the angle, the sharper the knife, but it will go blunt quicker than when you select a wider angle.

Did you know?
When a knife is sharp, it causes minimal damage to the cell walls of fruits, vegetables, and meats. This helps maintain the integrity of the ingredients, preserving their freshness, flavour, and texture.

Sharp knives also produce clean and neat cuts, leading to a more professional appearance in the presentation of dishes. And lastly, you're less likely to crush or mangle ingredients with a sharp knife, reducing the chances of producing uneven or unusable portions. This can help minimise food waste.

The angle at which a knife is sharpened is crucial for achieving the desired cutting performance. That’s why our V-Sharp Extreme Edge, Classic II and A4 offer quick angle adjustment to sharpen your knives specifically for your needs.

Shallow angles (15-20° degrees) are typically found on knives that require a very sharp edge, such as chef's knives and Japanese thin-blade cooking knives. The lower the angle, the sharper the edge, but it is more prone to dulling quickly.

Steep Angles (25° + degrees) are often more durable and suitable for tasks that put more stress on the blade when working on hard surfaces such as cutting boards. These knives may not achieve the razor-sharp edge of shallower angles but offer more resilience and stay sharp for longer.

⭐ Our range of sharpeners offer the following angles;
V-Sharp Extreme Edge: 17° , 20° , 25° and 30°
V-Sharp Classic II: 20°, 25° and 30°
V-Sharp A4: 15°, 20°, 25° and 30°
Multi edge 220: Any angle between 10° and 90°
V-Sharp Curve: Fixed 25°

The Timeless Tradition of Knife Sharpening, shared by Peter Meyer

As an enthusiastic fisherman with a lineage deeply rooted in the same passion, I find solace in the timeless practice of knife sharpening, a tradition passed down through generations. My father, much like his father, instilled in me the importance of maintaining a sharp fishing knife. Even though I never had the opportunity to know my grandfather, the echoes of his love for fishing resonate through the shared ritual of knife preparation.

I vividly recall the days when my father would diligently sharpen his fishing knife before embarking on a boat trip with his friends. The presence of the sharpening stone on our stoep, positioned close to the front door, became a symbol of their imminent journey to the sea. It was a subtle yet poignant reminder that etched itself into my after-school routine.

Several years ago, my wife gifted me a V-Sharp Curve, a knife sharpener that has since become an indispensable part of my fishing gear. Nestled in my fishing bag, it stands ready to serve whenever I need to cut bait or fillet the day's catch. However, amidst the modern convenience of the V-Sharp Curve, I find myself holding onto a sentimental relic - the old sharpening stone my father used. While it may have retired from its primary role, it now serves as a steadfast doorstop for my back door. An enduring testament to the cherished memories associated with the tradition of knife sharpening, I cannot bring myself to part with it.

Congratulations to Andrew Cooper, who just won himself a Warthog V-Sharp Curve! In response to our question, "Do you have a special braai trick, tip, hint, recipe, or skill you'd like to share with the rest of us?" Andrew shared a valuable and timeless tip.

His advice may not be new or groundbreaking, but it is undeniably essential. Andrew suggests, "When braaiing steaks, let them rest for at least the same amount of time you took to cook them. Those juices will stay in the meat for longer." This tried and tested tip is particularly crucial when it comes to braaing steaks.

Andrew Cooper, please direct message us your contact details, and your well-deserved Warthog V-Sharp Curve will be on its way to you soon.

The frequency of sharpening depends on the knife's usage, the type of blade, and the cutting surface. Knives used for heavy-duty tasks may require sharpening more often, while those used for lighter tasks may need less frequent sharpening.

In essence, if you've spent the afternoon cutting all kinds of ingredients for your Sunday lunch, remember to pull those knives a few times through your Warthog sharpener after you've washed them. Now, they're ready for the next time.

About Warthog Sharpeners

Sharper Faster

Warthog Blade Sharpeners was started with the simple aim of creating a better knife sharpener. We wanted to give people the ability to sharpen their knives to a professional level without having to send them to an expert. We began operating in 1999 and have been manufacturing and exporting our patented high quality diamond knife sharpeners for more than 10 years.

Sharpening a blade correctly, in a way that preserves the knife for years to come is a skill that has largely remained with expert craftsmen. It is from the expert knowledge of these craftsmen that Warthog has based the design of its patented sharpeners. Most home systems use a clamping device to hold the blade to maintain a constant angle. But this is unwieldy and time consuming.
