Nice!

Gritomatic has another upgrade definitely worth having....4 inch and 6 inch generic stone holders! It opens up a whole new world.

Well, that escalated quickly...

Unit arrived today, looks like a solid bit of kit for the money.

I‘ll add it to the corner with the Work Sharp and Drill Doctor, lol.

Please forgive the iPotato pics. Buck 110 for scale.





May I ask, are you happy with this still? How many bales have you done? Thanks 🤨

I am so impressed that they are releasing the upgrade kit so that owners of the original (like me) are able to get the whole Elite product without buying redundant parts.
Way to go, Work Sharp!!!

I purchased one also and it’s great. The only flaw is on small slipjoints is I had to set the angle to 25 degrees and higher or else I was sharpening the end of the clamp. I wanted a 20 bevel but with skinny blades the edge is so close to the jaws I just couldn’t get there. Any tips for that would be great if anyone has any yet.

Keep an eye out, or maybe contact Gritomatic to find out if they have stock of their Hapstone lite clamps or their KakBritva central wide clamp and related Gearconnect clamp adapter for the Work Sharp Precision Adjust. With those clamps & related Gearconnect adapter you can get a very low sharpening angle.

Basically, you unscrew and remove the original clamp, and replace it with one of these clamps + adapter.

Just make sure not to refer to the angle markings on the Precision Adjust when you use a slightly longer clamp than the original. Your angles will be a lot lower than indicated on the scale. Use your phone or an angle cube to check the angle if you use these clamps.

Like one of these -

Thanks for tip. I also just sharpened a 3/16 thick blade and the jaws also seem maxed out. I have a lot of 1/4 inch thick knives and worry the jaws won’t hold onto them. We will see. Great kit but it isn’t the be all end all I hoped it to be. But for the money it’s awesome and will do 90% of “normal” knives I’m sure.
