Sharpening jig for a Barry King swivel knife

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I recently bought a Barry King swivel knife and want to make sure that I keep the blade in the right condition. I'm new to the craft and I don't trust myself to manually hold a consistent angle on a stone. 

Previous posts I've seen recommend a Chuck Smith Big Red jig. Though, I'm having trouble finding a place selling these online. Does anyone know a good source for these? Or, is there an alternative jig that would work?

I have the big red, and its pretty nice and you can find it here or by contacting them.  https://chuck-smith-leather-tools.myshopify.com Also, maybe check out the new sharpener by Gordon Andrus.  Its fantastic.  you can find it here:  http://sagecreeksaddles.com/red-ox-brand-tools/  Alternatively, I made myself a wedge out of leather at the angle I want and just use high grit sand papers to sharpen, using the wedge to help me keep the angle.  After a while, I don't need the wedge anymore and can do it by hand.  Its a lot cheaper and works if you put the time in.

I took a tandy sharpening jig and drilled it out to fit the barry king blades I use.  Has done a good job and inexpensive.  HTH
