Warthog Blade Sharpeners was started with the simple aim of creating a better knife sharpener. We wanted to give people the ability to sharpen their knives to a professional level without having to send them to an expert. We began operating in 1999 and have been manufacturing and exporting our patented high quality diamond knife sharpeners for more than 10 years.

Sharpening a blade correctly, in a way that preserves the knife for years to come is a skill that has largely remained with expert craftsmen. It is from the expert knowledge of these craftsmen that Warthog has based the design of its patented sharpeners. Most home systems use a clamping device to hold the blade to maintain a constant angle. But this is unwieldy and time consuming.

We saw there was nothing on the market that sharpened blades expertly and quickly while still being easy to use. We put our heads together and, in 2000, we designed and manufactured the first V-Sharp™ (now called the “V-Sharp Classic™”).
