Ultimate Knife Sharpener – The Camillus Glide (Review)

The ultimate knife sharpener! The Camillus Glide is now our favorite knife sharpener for the price! For $15, you can’t beat it!


Camillus makes high value knives with excellent designs and some of the best materials for the money we carry. But they have yet to produce a sharpener, until now. The Glide is their first compact, multi-use sharpener and it is a well thought-out design and really has some nice features. It’s got three separate angles for shear sharpening, two grits for easy pull-through sharpening, and a small ceramic rod for free-hand sharpening. This rod has a groove in the middle which makes sharpening fish hooks a cinch. What sets this tool apart from others is that is also has 4 torx drivers (T6, T8, T9, and T10) to tighten up any loose screws so you’re tool is ready to go once again. They look plastic but I assure you they’re hardened steel but as always, are subject to stripping so tighten with care. This is a great, lightweight tool you should keep in a pack or go-bag so you have a simple tool that can do loads for you without being obtrusive.
