1K King Stones for the Edge Pro, Hapstone, and TSPROF Sharpeners

September 17, 2017

Jende Industries is now carrying a 1″ x 6″ King Stone 1K grit for the Edge Pro, Hapstone, and TSPROF Sharpeners! One of the beautiful things about the guided systems such as the Edge Pro, Hapstone, and TS Prof, is that they all utilize 1″ x 6″ stones, which is our specialty!

The 1K King Stone is an old warhorse stone that is prized for its overall quality at a very economical price. It acts as an aoto stone, removing more aggressive scratches left by diamond plates, and coarser scratches left by coarser stones, leaving a very good working edge. It also has some cutting power, and can be used for minor repairs and general maintenance.

The King 1K stone measures 1″ x 6″ x 1/4″ thick and comes mounted to a standard aluminum blank that will affix into any Edge Pro, Hapstone, or TS Prof sharpener. They do require a pre soak before use, and are used with water.

KME Sharpener Diamond Films by Jende 1″x4″

September 14, 2017

The KME Diamond Films by Jende bring yet another level of ability to the KME Sharpener! With the mainstream use of more abrasion resistant steels and ceramic blades, comes the need for something that will cut through everything. That would be diamonds. We’ve custom made the 1″x4″ Jende Diamond Films to fit the KME Sharpener with a 1/4″ acrylic base to create the proper thickness. These films can also be used for slip stones, wrapping around dowels for serrations, and whatever else you can think of!

The KME Diamond Films by Jende come in a wide range of grits, including 80, 60, 45, 30, 15, 9, 6, 3, 1, and 0.5 microns (from 220 grit to 30,000 grit!) with or without PSA backing. They are also available in 6 grit variety packs, or single grits of 5 pieces.

You can see our full line of KME Sharpener stones, strops, and films here.

Some New Japanese Knives at Jende Industries

November 23, 2016

We’ve been slowly adding to our knife line, and have recently added several Japanese knives, including some Gyutos, Santokus, Yanagis, Debas, and Tacobikis. These are all high quality blades, using Aogami Super Blue, Shirogami White, and VG-10 Steels, and come with and without damascus patterns. Our favorite to look at, by far is the Sakimarutako by Tanaka Kazuyuki, which is an octopus knife with a rounded samurai sword tip instead of the usual squared off tip of conventional takobiki blades. It features a Damascus Clad VG-10 core with  and ebony octagon handle and horn ferrule. kiritsukegata-takohiki-6

We also have a traditional Santoku by Maruyoshi, featuring Aogami Super Blue steel with a walnut octagon handle.
