KME Hewlett JewelStik 1-2-3 Diamond Hone
Here's an awesome accessory for your knives and broadheads.
KME's Hewlett JewelStik 1-2-3 Diamond Hone is particularly well suited for sharpening recurve blades, Karambits, Kukris, or any other knife or broadhead with a concave blade design.
Custom made in the USA for KME by Hewlett MFG, this hone has 3 oval shaped sharpening surfaces making it perfect for sharpening even the most extreme concave blade designs.
- Three grits on one hone: coarse (270), medium (600), and fine (1800)
- 5" long, with three 1/2" wide sides
- Includes a KME 11" x 5/32" diameter guide rod which attaches to the hone with a close tolerance friction fit. Just push the rod a few inches into the hone. The rod can be installed in the knife sharpening system.
About using rounded hones
When using rounded hones, care must be taken not to round over the tips of your knives. This is becuase unlike a wide flat stone, a rounded rod has a very small area of blade contact. It is easy to go just a bit too far and slip pass the tip which will cause the point or tip to be deformed or rounded over slightly. You can be fairly aggressive throughout the lenght of the blade but be very careful when you sharpen the tip section.
Note - accessory base and sharpening system not included.
