Simple and dependable, Smith's Jiffy-Pro handheld sharpener is quick, safe, and easy to use in the field, back at camp, or in your home. Its knife sharpening slots incorporate crossed carbide blades used to set the edge on your blade and crossed ceramic rods used for honing the final edge to razor sharpness. These fixed abrasive components create a preset sharpening angle that guarantees results every time.
Ideal for sharpening skinning/filet knives, the Jiffy-Pro also includes a scissors sharpener integrated into the handle. It uses a patented "floating" carbide rod that adjusts to fit the precise bevel of the blades, and it's been specifically enlarged to accommodate game shears.
The crossed carbide blades used in the head of the Jiffy-Pro are precision ground to provide smoother, more consistent metal removal when setting the edge on a very dull or damaged straight edge blade. The extra-fine, crossed ceramic rods on the side of the sharpener are designed to finish and polish the edge to razor sharpness. They are also excellent to use for maintaining an already sharp cutting edge by pulling the blade through the sharpening slot three or four times before each use and as soon as you notice it’s not working as well as it should during use.
The Jiffy-Pro has a soft grip, rubber handle for a firm, comfortable grip in all conditions and is made of lightweight, durable plastic. It fits in your pocket or backpack, or can easily be attached to your belt or pack because of the uniquely designed finger guard, which is open on one end.

You have the standard Carbide v-sharpener at a fixed angle in the head. The carbide looks and feels like it's high grade, but a distructive test would be required to actually test the grade. This should really work well for blades that are not regularly maintained. An extra feature with this model is that the carbide blades can be removed and replaced (providing you can find replacements at the time). In addition to inserting replacements, you can reverse them which will allow you to get more usage out of them if you are a heavy user or need to fix a few really bad edges. In addition one might be able to replair them with a diamond stone sharpener for extra long life. This is a very nice feature for the heavy knowledgable user.
The best way to keep a knife sharp and in great condition is to never let it get dull... this simple tip can not be over stressed. To help with that, this sharpener also includes second sharpener; a set of Ceramic Rods in a fixed angled V configuration that can be used to put an even finer edge on a blade. The real advantage to having this option is that once your knives are sharp, you can use this sharpener to regularly maintain a very sharp edge without removing much metal at all and thus keep them almost like new. This addtion really allows this style of sharpener to reach closer to a true all-in-one sharpener for regular kitchen knives and the general user.
Making this sharpener even more versatile, it includes a scissors/shears sharper.Read more ›
Keep in mind this sharpener is only for straight edge knives with a flat grind on both sides of the blade.
That being said, this is a good-decent tool for use with household knives, scissors/shears, and smaller straight edge knives. It wont get your items "razor" sharp but pretty close to it.
It's lightweight and easy to handle. For the price I paid, (10.00 with free shipping) its a good deal.
