Thread: Sharpening Mora knives

  1. #1

    Sharpening Mora knives


    I usually sharpen my pocket knives with a Spyderco Sharpmaker .

    I have 3 Mora knives that were razor sharp when new but now need a touch up.

    The trouble is they are skandi grind so not compatible with the 40 degree angle that the sharpmaker uses on the 'normal' flat grinds most knives have.

    How do you sharpen the Moras ?

    I can get most knives sharp with the Sharpmaker though not 'scary sharp' as shown on the Sal Glasser (CEO Spyderco) you tube video for Spyderco sharpeners - any tips on how to do this please ?

    Tried everything myself, just started using a 1000/3000 japanese water stone and leather strop. You can get any knife scary sharp with a bit of work.

    I always use a Diamond sharpening block (lidl under £10) and finish with a strip of card coated with Brasso.
    Place the card on a slightly damp work surface and strop the blade.
    I get an edge with a high polish comparable to a Scalpel.

    Check out several good options but expensive £200-£600, but you are ensured of a good job, you need Japanese water-stones but you also need the angle to be correct so a good angle guide is invaluable.

    Or try the Wicked Edge sharpener - I've had one for a couple of years and I'm delighted with it.

    People in the village now drop their kitchen knives round to be sharpened

    Is that the Wicked Edge sharpener at £200 (without stand) of the Wicked Edge Pro pack 2 kit at £778.95 ?

    I could buy 20 or 77 Mora knives for that and chuck them away when they get blunt...

    As they are cheap and easy to keep keen ,I use a blade tech another cheap item, No I would't use one on one of my hand made blades as they rip steel like wood shavings but work well enough for the great little knife like the mora.
