Sharpen

Today we can swim in a multitude of sharpening devices. I recommend reading my pages under how it works with fast sharpener and sharpening.

Sharpening the Rangers:

I recommend to have the edge up to date and to sharpen it regularly. The best is to use a fine surface on a diamond stone or a regular stone. If you use a diamond surface then the absolute best is 600-800 grit. I use it like on the picture! Remember that the pressure you use when sharpening should be light but firm. It is the same with a stone and the pressure can make the edge finer with light pressure. When I slide the blade on the diamond stone it looks like I am cutting of small flakes of the stone. It is of course metal coming off.

Arkansas stone medium update

The Arkansas stones works very well and remember to use a light but firm pressure and to finsish with an even lighter pressure. Use water or oil. When using a small stone then i use it like on the picture or in the hand....

Round rod update

It is fully possible to use a round or a half round sharpening rod on a plain edge.. I recommend using a fine surface if so. Just slide the rod along the edge a few times or if you are skilled use the rod vertically and use the edge downwards.

The half round types can be used by sliding it along the edge or crossing it.

fast sharpener update

 

It is fully possible to use fast sharpeners on the Ranger knives. I would recommend to use them with care. The little green one on the picture with round ceramic rods should not be used on any knife because it folds the edge. The black Fiskars can be used if you do not have any other at the time. Not the best type.

Leather strop update

 

It is possible to improve the edge with leather. It is no need for any compound.

aluminum oxide update

 

Aluminum oxide stones can be used but with the fine surface + water.
