- PHOTOS BY LARRY ATIL

A dull blade is not only a safety hazard, but it also makes simple tasks much more difficult and time consuming. Sharpeners keep a keen edge for all-around perfection.

WITH EVERY GREAT KNIFE, THERE IS A USEFUL ACCESSORY BEHIND IT KEEPING IT SHARP, CLEANED, AND PROPERLY CARRIED FOR SAFETY AND PROTECTION FROM THE ELEMENTS. Accessorie­s for knives and other bladed weapons and tools take the form of hand- or electric-powered sharpeners, oil, salves, and sheaths made from durable manufactur­ed materials or natural, rich leather. Remember, keeping your blades in top condition will give you year after year of reliable and trusty use.
