Buck Knives has introduced a new 100% diamond-coated EdgeTek sharpening line, in a partnership with Hewlett Manufacturing, bringing USA-made sharpeners, backed by Buck’s Forever Warranty, to the market.
There are 12 new sharpeners, including Buck’s EdgeTek FlipStiks, Bench Stones, Pocket Stones and Sharpening Steels. They provide fine, medium and coarse grits, along with offering single, dual and even three-sided sharpeners of various shapes and sizes.
From all these, the most innovative are the EdgeTek FlipStiks. So easy to carry, in your pocket or bag, the 5-inch handle doubles as a sheath to protect the 4-inch sharpener. Locked open they are 9” long. They come in a range of grits to suit individual preferences.
While Buck’s FlipStiks provide new options and convenience, the whole EdgeTek line offers sharpeners for every preference. In addition to the three FlipStiks there are four EdgeTek Steels with a choice of lengths and surfaces; plus five honing stones for your pocket or bench.
“We have offered sharpeners in the past, but always maintained the goal of providing an elite USA-made line to help our customers keep the edge on,” said Phil Duckett, COO of Buck Knives. “Teaming up with Hewlett Manufacturing is a great way for us to accomplish this. They are a family owned business that manufacture their products in the USA.”
