  • All basic parts made of metal. Hapstone knife sharpener is built to last forever.
  • Universal stone holder suitable for the installation of sharpening stones up to 20 cm.
  • Full compatibility with Edge Pro stones mounted on blanks with 45 degree bevel.
  • Thickness compensator allowing for sharpening stones of different thicknesses to be used while maintaining the chosen angle.
  • Rubber covered blade table to protect your knives from scratches.
