What is a Handy Sharp and why are they here on Unique3phase?
My wife and I have been selling them for years and have decided to cross advertise on the two different sites, here and on Handysharp.com
Let’s face it, everyone needs to be able to sharpen a knife, because everyone has a knife. It could be a knife with a 10 inch blade that you wear on your hip, a steak knife, or serrated blade in the kitchen. But in all cases you need to at some time sharpen them.
So what is so great about the Handy Sharp line?
They are small and portable and don’t take up a lot of room in a drawer or pocket.
I know that my wife loves hers. She has it in the kitchen drawer and uses it a couple of times a month. She use to ask me to sharpen her knives, and because I was busy watching the game, she would just let it go until the knives were seriously dull. Then it takes a bit more to bring them back, plus she suffered with a dull blade longer then she should have. Now she sharpens her own and keeps a keen edge on them all the time.
I must confess I am not a knife person. I don’t have a favorite knife, I don’t have a knife collection, and I don’t really get into sharpening them. But I am a believer in the Handy Sharp product because of the experience with my wife, and my association with Chad Ruseler who we sell them for. My wife and I sell them on the internet and Chad travels around to gun shows, survival/prepper shows, and home shows. Any where he can get a table and demonstrate the products. I have heard plenty of happy testimonies from satisfied customers. They have a life time warranty so if the people come back it is to buy more.
There are six models of the Handy Sharp line.
There are the original three; Long handle, Rectangle, and the Mini poker chip. They all have the same size carbide piece but the size of the handle is varied.
Then Handy Sharp added two more models. These are geared to the outdoors/survival market. They are called the Sharp-n-spark full size and the Sharp-n-spark mini with bottle opener. The unique thing about these is not only do they have the ability to sharpen tools and knifes but they have a built in fire starter. There is a ferrocerium rod built into the handle. Unscrew the rod and use the carbide to shave off a few bits of the ferrocerium, and then give it good fast scrap to make some ferocious ferrocerium sparks. And you have a fire started even with wet tinder.
Just recently the company has also added what they call the Survival Spark. It has the tool and knife sharpener, a built in whistle, the sparking rod, and a small compartment inside to store tinder or pills or what ever you might want to hide from the authorities.
As you can see there is a tool and knife sharpener for just about everyone.
Have any doubts about whether these work or not just watch this video here and see Chad take a dull knife and make it sharp. We also talk about cutting paper which seems to be the standard way product demonstrators use to show how sharp the knife is and the pitfalls with that tactic.
They make Christmas or birthday gifts for that hard to buy for person on your list.
