Keeping a knife in good working order requires a quality sharpener, and the Work Sharp Ken Onion edition is one such product that assures a consistent blade edge. But, like all good tools, the sharpener relies on original-equipment accessories—in this case replacement belts for specific tasks, whether for sharpening ceramic or steel blades. Included in the kit are five replacement belts to run the gamut of sharpening needs. Price: $18. Contact: Work Sharp; (800) 597-6170; worksharptools.com.
