The makers of the CarBee-Sharp, a small multi-surfaced sharpening tool, claim that it’ll sharpen, finish, and polish without any lubricants or cutting fluids. It looks like a tool that’ll either work very well, or be found at the big box checkout line right next to the gum and flashlight batteries.
The carbide multi-head of the CarBee-Sharp is always used dry. The sheer portability of this interests us — anytime you find yourself out and about with a dull blade, just fish one of these out of the nearest toolkit and it’ll get you on your way, in theory. With six different surfaces on its head, it can finish out a blade in a number of ways, from honing to polishing. But you’ll probably need to practice with it a bit to achieve the maximum effect.
We’re curious to know if anyone has gotten their hands on one and how it went. Are these a novelty, or a handy solution to dull blades? Let us know in comments.
