When you use the Scary Sharp Knife Sharpening Kit to sharpen your knife, you will get a scary sharp edge, sharper than you’ll ever get using ceramic stones. At less than half the cost of a ceramic stone set, this is definitely the way to go.
Here’s what Doug says about this Sharpening Kit, “Marty. Just finished using your sharpening kit. WOW! What a difference and so easy. Took all the guess work out of it.”
Included in this kit:
4 sets of abrasive strips (4-1200 grit, 4-1800 grit, 4-4500 grit, 4-8000 grit) This abrasive paper is very hard to find. Take my word for it!
Aluminum Stick with 2 end caps
Strop compound (White Gold)
The video below will show you exactly what to do to get a razor, SCARY sharp edge on your knife!

I purchased the knife sharpening kit. For a long time I have been overwhelmed with all types of systems on the market. After reviewing the helpful video and began, I have never had a dull moment. I would highly recommend this product. For the price it is well worth it.
Shari Ferguson –
I love this sharpening kit. It creates a wonderful edge on my chip carving knives. I do wish there was a kit for sharpening my larger carving tools, but for smaller knives this is the ticket!
Gerald Habecker –
WOW! How can anything so simple be so good. I read the article, tried to find supplies but wasn’t successful. Called 866-444-6996 and ordered. I’m learning lots of things, how much pressure to put on the knife,, the correct angle to hold them, etc. My knives immediately improved and I’m still learning.
Louis Capaldi –
Easy to use process. Used the process on other tools and it works great.

I’m glad I ordered extra strips at the time I order the Kit. I’m not sure how many knifes I have ( a lots, but don’t tell my wife). I’ve got all the knives I use all the time put through the process & almost the rest of them. I’ve almost got as much sharping gear as I have knives & this kit ranks right up there at the top. . .JoeB

Bill Lacy: I have been carving for many years and I am always looking for ways to sharpen my tools, knives, gauges, both small hand as well as larger mallet tools.I find that your sharpening kit works just as described and really does gives you a scary sharp edge, on the first try.

Finally I have a system (tools & methodology) that allows me to get consistent results…super sharp knives. And, it’s super easy to do. Definitely 5 stars!
John Thompson –
Originally wanted to get the two ceramic stones. But after watching the video honestly it made sense.I just used them for the first time, and I’m literally stunned. i have never gotten an edge anywhere near this clean and sharp.unreal!
Lynn Miller –
I was skeptical after watching the video. I ordered the kit anyway to see for myself. I couldn’t believe the edge it put on my chip carving knives. I also used it to sharpen my lathe tools, my other woodcarving tools and my pocket knife. I got an unbelievable sharp edge on all of them. I have oil stones, ceramic stones and this system puts a better edge on them than any of the other methods.

I’VE BEEN CHIP CARVING FOR 7 YEARS AND MY BIGGEST PROBLEM WAS SHARPENING. NO LONGER DO I HAVE THIS IRRATATION. YOUR NEW SCARY SHARP KIT IS SUPER. I SHARPENED ALL MY KNIVES AND IT WAS AMAZING HOW SHARP THEY WERE. NOW BEFORE I START CARVING I RUN MY KNIVES 3 TO 5 TIMES ON THE SCARY AND I CAN BEGIN CARVING WITHOUT MY KNFE DRAGGING. AS TO THE MODIFIED KNIFE I CAN’T BELIEVE HOW MY CARVING HAS IMPROVED. WHAT A GREAT PRODUCT. KEEP UP WITH THE YOUR GOOD IDEAS AND TEACHING. YOU ARE ON TO BUY LIST WHEN IN NEED. I OWN 2 MODIFIED KNIVES AND I ORDERED ANOTHER SET OF SCARY STRIPS FOR BACK UP. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRODUCTS.

Sam Stewart –
This sharpening kit I bought is by far the best of any other sharpeners that I have purchased in the past , some were much more expensive. I would highly recommend this sharpening kit.
Kathy Lauwagie –
This system is awesome. It is very easy to use and gives you a very sharp knife. Well worth the money.
Charley Partridge –
I have been carving for several years. The sharpening kit is one of the best investments I have made! It is such a pleasure to carve with a really sharp knife . It is easy to obtain with the kit and the simple / easy directions!
Andrei Gotia –
Dear Marty, what a difference it made to sharpen my knives with your system and materials. Until now I did not know what a scary-sharp knife was. :o) There is a big difference between ceramic stone sharpening and your system. Even the sound of the knife cutting the fibres is different. Thank you very much!
Guy Wells –
Just received the kit it all looks great and works great
August Calderaro –
I have been using ceramic stones as per the instructions of Marty and other instructors. So when Marty opened the door to sand paper sharpening I immediately purchased the product and gave it a try. WOW, what can I say, scary sharp is a great way to describe what are the end results and I’m extremely pleased with my chip carving results. Thanks again, Marty.Augie, Colorado Springs, Co

This is by far the best sharpening method I’ve used. I have another abrasive sharpening kit but they aren’t as fine as the ones included in this system. For chip carving you really need this sharpening method to achieve the “scary sharpe” for clean cuts. I was becoming frustrated with my chip carving and decided it had to be the sharpeners of my knives. I have the platinum edition cutting knife & modified knife so I knew it wasn’t the knife quality as initially they worked wonderfully. Using my abrasives to sharpen helped but I wasn’t achieving my best carving. I determined the abrasive grit was much higher on these than what I was using so purchased this kit. It’s worth every penny. I have gouged one of the strips when running my knife over it so be cautious as it’s fairly easy to do. Also be cautious when using the leather strop. I just barely touched my thumb with the tip of my modified knife as I was finishing honing, the cut on the back of my thumb was fairly deep but with the sharpness of the knife I never even felt it. I keep band aids handy & rarely cut myself but this cut, over a knuckle was bad, I use super glue on the bad ones once I get the bleeding stopped. It’s not medical grade but it works. So “scary sharpe” was achieved.

The kit arrived promptly and was very easy setting up. I’m still learning to use the sharpening system to keep my knives sharp. With a little practice I’m confident that I can get my knives sharp. Great product and simple to use.
Ted Johnson –
An excellent sharping technique! I’ve been using ceramic stones and this does a far better job.
This is awesome! I can’t believe the difference a scary sharp edge makes. Thank you for providing such great tools in our hands and the instructions to use them properly.
Hugh O’Connor –
I am not good at sharping knives. Not until I received this sharping kit. I was able to get my knife scary sharp the first time I used the kit.
I am very pleased with the way this worked. I bought this to sharping my carving knives. However I am now thinking of starting chip carving.

I have been carving for over 20 years (chip carving for the past 4 – 5 years) and I have used many different sharpening systems. Water stones, Arkansas stones, ceramic stones and diamond plates, plus I have four (4) power sharpening machines but, I have never been able to get a knife as sharp as I can with the “Scary Sharp Sharpening Kit”.
Using a black sharpie I draw a mark on the edge to be sharpened so I can see where I am touching the blade.
I place the sharpening board on a table so my hand is free from any obstruction. I then sharpen one side of the blade on the 1200 grit strip using 10 strokes , then turn the knife over and repeat this process, turn the knife back to the first side and count down 9 stokes, turn the knife back to the second side and repeat 9 strokes. I continue until I have counted down from 10 strokes to 1 on each side. At the end of this phase I make sure that I have created a burr on the edge of the blade. I repeat this process on the 1800, 4000,and 8000 strips. Finally I apply sharpening compound to the strop and use the same process as I did for sharpening.
Believe me after using this process you will have a “SCARY SHARP KNIFE”

Marty I recently purchased your “scarey sharp kit”. I thought I was keeping my knives sharp, but not scarey sharp! WOW! Chips are much cleaner with less effort. Highly recommend the sharpening kit to other carvers.
