In order for a budding knife to deliver outstanding results on a continuous basis it needs to be kept sharp.
Use the Bahco SHARP-X sharpening tool to keep the blade in good condition. The tool is equipped with 2 Tungsten carbide bits that will give many years of use.
The 2 component handle makes it comfortable to use. You no longer need to add a liquid such as oil, water or diesel so the sharpening of knife blades is a pleasure.
