Even with high quality steel and excellent craftsmanship, every knife must ultimately be sharpened. This triple diamond-plated design is durable and sharpens both serrated and fine edge blades.
The blades in Gerber knives and multi-tools are engineered from high quality stainless steel that excels at edge retention. Still there comes a time when proper sharpening is called for. For those occasions, we offer an extensive array of sharpening solutions.We're talking about everything from diamond to stone to ceramic to steel. The solution you choose depends on what you're sharpening, and which method you prefer. Whatever the case, Gerber's got you covered.
The coating is coming off in spots
Very dissatisfied... I just got home and tried it and the diamond grit started flaking off. I bought it at a Sports Authority that is closing so I can't even get a refund or exchange. I only paid $11.69+ tax but it being Gerber I expected a quality item... I probably would've faired better buying cheap made in China knock offs....
bought this 2 days ago and sharpened two knives. In the middle of the flat part the diamond material bubbled up and flaked off
I used this prodct once and the coating came off I can't believe it is on the shelves. Now I have to waste my time taking it back.
NOT happy at all! I expected better from Gerber! I used it one time and the surface is now smooth in spots! At this rate, it might last through about 3 sharpening's. What a waste of $10!
I sharpened 4 knives with this sharpener. I used the flat side exclusively. After those four knives were complete, the tool was worn out. All of the abrasive material had disappeared. I couldn't believe it. Very disappointed.
I'd like another one sent to me. I purchased mine at Cabelas in Minnesota.
Piece of junk. Diamond coating flaked off the first time I used it. Wish I saved the receipt and packaging. If there really is a "lifetime warranty", e-mail me how I take advantage of it. Sending it back would likely cost me more than I paid for it. Major disappointment. and sad commentary on Gerber product Quality.
This is not so great .it keeps flaking but it can work if you don't abuse it.
Got this sharpener in the kit with hatchet knife and saw. I sharpened the hatchet once and the flat part is now smooth. Figured It would last long enough that i could sharpen all 3 at least a few times.
i bought one of these a while back and it has never failed me.
got this a couple years ago and its been my primary sharpening tool. i have noticed that it has worn down and dosnt sharpen as good nowadays, but that is pretty much my only complaint. amazing. great job gerber
I bought this 2 days ago and sharpened 2 small pen knives. In the middle of the flat part the diamond material bubbled up and flaked off
Have used this sharpener in the field for 6-7 years. Recently lost mine on an archery hunt and replaced as soon as we got home. Essential gear
This is such an awesome sharpener. Its incredibly light and works extremely well. My Dad was so impressed he's going to buy himself one. I highly recommend this!
I bought one of these a couple of years ago and so far its been the best portable knife sharpener I've ever had. It takes the place of most stones, its light and small.
