anyone know where to buy a FURI knife sharpener?

heard this was a real good one, would like to buy local.

walmart is a doesn't carry them and i don't know where else to look.

unless i go into Chicago to this restaurant supply house near the Como Inn (to far of a drive though) there has to be some where close to me.

ive got wet stones and also have a nice jig type sharpening system for knifes with a wide blade (like hunting knifes) but i just wanted something simple with a prebuilt degree built in for sharping kitchen knifes.

In case you turn into a lazy bug or want to go cheap.

BTW, post up how it works after you get it. I wonder if it would work on my Katana?

Let me know how it works, Ihave never been able to sharpen a knife back to it's original sharpness. it drives me nuts.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

ill go to sears and pay the 35.00 bucks and if i think its horse shit, i can return it

not to mention i dont like buying off e-bay never know sometimes with these people.

also Bruce i would use a wet stone sharpener kit, like the sets they sell at Gander Mtn for a Katana. but if your going from a rounded edge demo Katana to a full sharp Katana, stone it.

+1. I use those metal sword looking jobs on my kitchen knives and no matter how proffesional I look sharpening I can't get em razor. I'd use a stone but I don't like messin with em. If that FURI works out for you I'm gonna get one too.

Yeah, I've got a wet wheel, a box of stones with clamps and regular wet stones, plus ceramic and diamond based steels. I'm just lazy too and can never have too many blades or sharpeners. You know I like my sharp toys. For $20 I may just pick one up to put in the kitchen just to mess around with. BTW, did you see the pro version of this?

I forgot to post pictures of the Katana after all the advise. I took some shots with my cell that I didn't like as it didn't show off the steel. I went with a folded damascus live blade Katana. Very neat steel with all the pattern in it. Not the best, but quite sharp and functional right out of the box. It cut cleanly through a thick 5-6" tube of tightly rolled up cardboard shipping box material free standing like it wasn't there the day I got it. I took my time and ended up getting it off Ebay dirt cheap as almost no one bid on it and it slipped through a less than 1/2 the buy it now price. Anyway, with the length of the blade, I didn't want to "risk" screwing it up with a slip of a stone and thought this might be good for touching it up.

ahh fuck it, i pulled out my Gatco knife sharpening kit

pulled out one of my Sabatier knifes and put a 19deg angle on it in 5 minutes and i shaved some hair off my arm.

plenty good to do my Chicago cutlery set when they need sharpening.
