A ‘full monty’ is a British slang phrase that means "everything which is necessary, appropriate, or possible." Or to put it another way, "The Works!"

We have assembled an exclusive CKTG set that includes everything you could possibly need to sharpen your knives. We recently upgraded this package to include our top of the line Shapton Glass stones. These are some of our most favorite stones and regularly receive high praise and recommendations from our many customers. Shapton Glass stones are thicker, are true splash and go and very long wearing.

The stones included run the gamut of abrasiveness from a super course 320 grit to the ultra fine 6000 grit polishing stone. We also include a leather strop for that final finish or daily touch up. We have assembled all the extra bits and pieces you will need to get up and running with this system including a water bottle, platform magnet, drill stop collar and of course a powerful 20x loupe.

The Apex patented knife guide system does not clamp the blade, so you can sharpen any length or shape blade up to 3 ˝" wide. Adjustable sharpening angles, from 10, 15, 18, 21, and 24 degrees and infinitely in between.

Buy this set and you have everything you will need to become a master sharpener in no time at all. PS we are substituting the Shapton Pro 320 in this set since we ran out of the 320 Glass.

    4  Functionally Good, Build is average, October 3, 2016
    Posted By: Sean

    I've been eyeing one of these since my first hand forged japanese gyuto in 2012. Pulled the pin last month and bought the Full Monty.

    Apex Pro Edge system - very intuitive idea and well executed general design, however, a the build quality is a slight let down. The unit is primarily made of plastic, which at this price point is forgivable. Other design oversights such as screw type fasteners, choice of metal finish on vertical rod... there's a fair bit. The most important thing is it holds an angle well. The rest is up to the stones and the user.

    Shapton Glass - I've used a range of synthetic whetstones through the years. These stones cut quickly and wears slowly. Scary at first but perfect for the EP. The stone combination in this set (320, 500, 1k, 4k, 6k) is a little strange. The jump from 1k to 4k leaves marks that are hard to polish. I will be ordering a 2k to fill the void. Finishing at 6k isn't bad but would have loved to have a 0.5/0.25micron paste/spray to finish.

    The loupes and angle cube felt unnecessary but I ended up using it a lot. That's what I love about kits - gives me incentive to learn something new.

    No regrets.

    The Edge Pro Custom Full Monty was just the tool I needed to bring my knives to the sharpness level I have been wanting. Easy to use, precise, and gives reproducible results on knife after knife. I highly recommend this system.

    I got this because it was recommended to me as a good way to learn how to sharpen knives and I find it way more frustrating than using normal stones. I find it is harder to get a good consistent edge. Also mine has trouble sticking to any surface making it hard to sharpen a knife when the whole thing moves. I personally do not think it was worth the $400, if you are looking to spend that much get a set of stones and an angle guide I think you will be better off.

    Great product, and here is the 'but'. You need to be aware the setup if very important for repeatable results, otherwise you will be re-profiling every time you sharpen. I suggest keeping a log, and using the angle cube. Write down the exact angle you used for each knife and as your stones wear use both the angle cube and the old 'black marker' trick.

    Worth every penny. This sharpener redefines what sharp used to mean to me. Once you get used to how to sharpen with it, it is hands down the best sharpener I've used. Better than my spyderco and lansky

    I've sharpened 20 knives using this kit now and I am extremely pleased!

    First off I am extremely glad I didn't start off using the stock EP stones but got this upgraded Chosera kit. The 400 Chosera is comparable to the 320 EP as far as micron size goes but it works 20x faster, I'm not kidding. It also leaves a great finish. The downside is that the Choseras also wear down faster. I've worn my 400 stone about 1/3 now after 20 knives.

    The diamond plate that comes with the kit is sort of like a plate with a sandpaper (diamondpaper...) glued on. It worked very well for the first couple of knives but after doing a knife with a lot of chipped areas that required some grinding the plate was worn down and pretty much useless. If I have a knife that requires a bit of thinning, reprofiling or fixing a chipped edge I now spend way too much time doing this with the 400 stone (like I mentioned before the 220 would take even longer...). I strongly suggest getting the Atoma 140 in addition to this kit. I also don't like the width of the diamondpaper plate. For kitchen knives it works OK but for other knives with more curved shapes it is too wide.

    The drill stop collar is also very neat, once the stones start to wear down and get various thickness it ensures that you maintain the correct angle.

    The jewellers loupe is also great quality. I do however prefer something with a bit more magnification. You can get 60-100x microscopes from ebay for less than $6 including shipping, in my oppinion a better option.

    In addition to the items mentioned I would definitely get the Atoma 140, something to level the stones (silicon carbide or an XXC diamond stone). Another good option is of course some compound like CrO but thats not required (which I consider the two items above to be).

    Excellent set to get everything you need for a mirror polished, hair whittle edge. The only thing I would want to add is a ceramic hone and a bag of silicon carbide for stone leveling.
