Yep, run the shears down each side of the breast bone at the joint of the ribs and it'll sail through like a knife through butter.

If you want to take the ribs whole to barbecue it works just as well along the spine.

The Work Sharp is by far the easiest and best one I have ever seen if your knife already has a bevel that is close to the guides you can make them shaving sharp in a few minutes. I sharpened all my hunting knives, my wifes kitchen knives and my pocket knives in less than 30 minutes and you can literally shave hair with everyone of them.

I am a general contractor by trade and appreciate commercial grade tools I was pretty skeptical of all the plastic on this one, but it works awesome. Hope that helps

ALL ABOVE ABOUT THE Work Sharp is exactly right!!!!!!!!!!!1

I learned to sharpen knives, axes, hoes, etc. using plain files and stones.

If you want to stop flirting with garbage and get real about sharpening this WS tool is THE TOOL! Just be careful, you will truly get a hair shaving edge.

Re: Electric knife sharpener????

yeah,ihad an electric sharpener once, cant remember the name,did a great job,but I noticed the blade on my good hunting knives slowly dissappearing after 12 months so I traded it on a lansky hand sharpener set, with five stones and a jig to get the bevels right.I would suggest that you only use em to grind a new bevel on your knife once in awhile and on new knives to start off with,unless of cause you like wearing out knives Cheers from Clarky

Re: Electric knife sharpener????

Well - when it comes to jerky recipes and knife sharpeners I have as many as most anyone.
Anyone know if this system will sharpen a gut hook. I've used a series of hand files but have had some issues in that by the time I get them touched up and razor sharp I've got too much of a bevel and there goes your durability.

I've pretty much went the havalon route for in the field in that we bone everything at the kill site but when it comes to the butcher room this sharpener just might be a plus.

Cowboy,

Yes it does, look at the 7:44 mark of the 1st video I posted.

I too have the Havalon Piranta for field use.
