Knife sharpening has never been easier. Perfected from 20 years of sharpening over 100,000 knives, Ben Dale manufactures the world's most accurate knife sharpening system designed with the end user in mind. Whether you are a chef, butcher, hunter or simply someone that just likes knife sharpening, the Apex Edge Pro Sharpener is the tool for you.

The Edge Pro Apex offers a wide array of abrasive grits and sharpening angles, making it much more flexible in that regard than most clamp and v-rod systems. The cutting speed is also high with the very abrasive nature of the coarse hone and the ability to apply heavy pressure.

The sharpener allows for smooth variation of angle from 10 to 35 degrees per side. Several degree increments are marked out clearly (10,15,18,21,24), but you are not fixed at using these set angles. The five aluminum oxide water stones included in this kit are one inch wide and six inches long. They are mounted securely on the guide rod with the use of clamps between plastic molded grips. These clamps also serve as protection from the stone slipping off the knife and damaging the edge. As the blanks are not permanently fixed to the guide rod they can easily be used for field freehand honing if desired. The hones can also be reversed to slow down hollowing.

This “ultimate” kit includes everything you will need to sharpen and maintain your knives with a quick, safe and repeatability that will make you smile every time you use it.

      Great product, great service, December 13, 2022

    I received this product as a gift from a family member, and I was extremely impressed with how CKtG handled issues that arose during the process of international shipping. Very prompt service and attention to customer need.

    The product itself lives up to the reputation. The consistency of the bevel you can achieve is precise, and the general ease of use is remarkable. I'd suggest anyone who decides to purchase check out an associated instructional video provided by Edge Pro on YouTube. It took me maybe ten minutes to figure out what I was doing.

    Had this for several years, easy setup with just a bit of practice. Does what it says, I find it is excellent for setting or correcting bevels especially when alternated with my tormek-style grinder to acheive accurate and symmetrical major corrections like thinning of bolsters. Very good for infrequent sharpening, a bit fiddley for daily touchup sharpening. I recommend avoiding fancy triple bevel grinds and such on working knives because when you return for the resharpen you will forget which knife had what set of angles or avoid resharpening for too long because of the extra time you spent on the first round. I have managed to put on full mirror polished bevels with a bit of time but very little fuss.The stock stones and polishing tape grits are very servicable but kind of a wonky match up, I don't know what grading system they use(JIS PEMA FEMA ANSI etc) or the letter hardness. The low grits are on the soft side but very effective up through 400; the 600 and 1000 stones(mine are the same color, the new photos show them as different so this may have changed) are very hard and haven't worn at all so the grit has rounded smooth and they now polish rather than sharpen, get something aftermarket for this range maybe a 1000 or 2000 nubatama/chosera/shapton. The polishing tapes work well enough but you will cut a few in practice, again not sure which grit system is used, the stock 1000 stone is finer than the 2000 tape. When you nick them just continue the nick right back out to the edge of the tape in a nice smooth cresent, if you just leave it hang it will catch and tear more. The better route is to ignore the tapes and just get a couple fancy finer stones. I have not tried the strop options but I can see free hand stropping as more practical/quicker.

      Finally, a sharpening system that works as advertised, July 8, 2016

    There's a bit of a learning curve, but once you get it, there's no going back to freehand sharpening. My kitchen knives (most of which are Japanese) have never been this sharp, even out of the box. I'd recommend this to anyone who is serious about keeping their kitchen knives sharp.

    The Edge Pro Apex 4 is awesome and really easy to use. Cheaper than buying 4 or 5 different stone. Should get one sooner!!!

    I love my Edgepro Apex 4. It comes with everything needed to put razor sharp edges on my pocket and kitchen knives. It is easy and intuitive to use. The only negative that I could possibly find with it is that I wish it were made of aluminum or another longer wearing metal, but that is just nit-picking.

    Definitely watch the video as it clearly demonstrates exactly what this product does, which is sharpen your knife in minutes. The product isn't foolproof and it takes some technique, but most people should be able to sharpen very successfully.

    Love it. Near mirror polished blades and almost perfect re-profiles (even S30v!) in record time (both of which are my limited by my ability, not the system). Truly scary sharp results.Easy to use, very sturdy, well engineered/built, good instructions. Almost feels like cheating.Used other angle guide systems for years, while gnashing my teeth about spending so much on a sharpening system. I should have just bought the Apex in the first place.chefsknivestogo had my order out right away, well packaged, and order went very smoothly

    The entire CKTG buying experience was superb. Mark clearly answered my questions (he picked up the phone on the first ring, old school, I like it)and the Edge Pro was shipped the same day I bought it. As for the Edge Pro itself, it works even better than I thought; I put a shaving-sharp edge on all my knives on the first try.

    I wish I had stumbled across this years ago. I have only been moderately successful as a hand sharpener, and have been hesitant to buy other kits (Gatco or Lansky). It does take a little practice to get going, but the same is true for any system. Go ahead an buy another 120 grit stone if you order a system, because you are going to want to reprofile a bunch of blades after you start using this. I just put a scary (to me) sharp edge on a kit knife that has been a piece of pretty but useless of junk. This was my second knife to sharpen on the kit, and I feel confident enough now to tackle my Randall
