Tony Roberts of Diamond, Missouri invented the sharpener out of necessity in 1995….“I wanted a sharpener that was light and accessible for the field when I hunted”. Sold mostly through word of mouth and the Sportsman Show circuit, Tony’s Sharpener has found its place in hundreds of thousands tackle boxes, backpacks and knife sheaths.
Today the Ray family has carried on Tony’s dream. Production was moved to Chicago and with some modifications and improvements Tony’s sharpener continues to be the best compact sharpener made in the USA.
… a must have tool for your EDC collection. Tony’s sharpeners are by far the best pocket size knife sharpener I have ever had the pleasure of using. As an avid north florida outdoorsman from hunting to fishing and all in between. I’m never without my knife or my Tony’s sharpener. Lightweight, tough and reliable, I’ve sharpened 440 straight edge blades, serrated blades, broadheads, damascus steel blades, tru-sharp surgical steel blades (CASEXX) and my leatherman’s blades and scissors with razor sharp results. Thanks to the built-in lanyard hole it fits right on my keychain and its slim enough to fit in a wallet. Made in the U.S.A. and available in a wide range of colors there no excuse for having a dull knife.
