South African Warthog Sharpeners was started with the simple goal of allowing people to sharpen their knives to a professional level without having to go to an expert. The company was established in 1999 and has produced and exported their patented high quality diamond cutters for almost 20 years.

Sharpening a knife in the correct way and preserving it for many years, is a skill that is primarily reserved for expert craftsmen. It is from their expert knowledge that Warthog has developed their knife grinders.

Many use knife sharpeners with a clamping device to hold the blade to maintain a constant angle. But this is unmanageable and time consuming.

Warthog Sharpeners saw that there were no products on the market that could grind knives professionally and quickly.

In 2000, the V-Sharp Classic model was introduced, and it has been a huge sales success ever since.

Wathog knife sharpeners are the perfect choice for professional users and private households due to its compact size and ease of use. The slider is easy to carry in your bag or car so you always have it handy with your knife.
