ASHLAND, Ore. (November 12, 2019) — Work Sharp Outdoor, the leading manufacturer of knife and tool sharpeners, launches three new compact, manual sharpeners, the EDC Pivot, EDC Pivot PLUS, and the EDC Pivot Pro Knife Sharpeners. All three sharpeners can easily be placed in your backpack, toolbox or tackle box, and are the perfect solution to sharpening and honing straight and serrated knives.

Work Sharp’s series of EDC Pivot knife sharpeners offer a true convex edge for superior retention and durability, while the fine-grit, ceramic rods hone the edge to factory level sharpness. The Pivot Response Technology follows the curve of the blade when sharpening, making it easier and more consistent.
Each sharpener has an additional medium-grit diamond sharpening surface for touching up knives and tools, while the Pivot PLUS Sharpener offers a tapered diamond rod for touching up serrations or fine edge tools, and the Pivot Sharpener has a groove for sharpening fish hooks.
