Hunters, outdoor enthusiasts, and military and law enforcement personnel depend on DMT’s Guided Sharpening Systems to safely and quickly achieve a razor-sharp edge with consistent angle control. Take it from retired from Army Special Forces officer turned knife-maker, Curtis Iovito.

“As a soldier, when you need a sharp knife and don’t have one, it can be a life-altering event, like when you have to cut yourself out of a stuck parachute. And portability is key. It’s easy to carry a DMT sharpener on a mission and keep a guided sharpening kit in the barracks or at the forward operating base,” says Iovito, co-founder of Spartan Blades in North Carolina. “We recommend DMT because it will sharpen any knife. With a few swipes, you’ll have a sharp blade and you won’t have to re-create that edge again.”

Professionals like Iovito and everyday consumers alike understand that keeping knives sharp in the field and at “home base” is essential, even a matter of survival. DMT’s new Magna-Guide Kit (MAGKIT-4) comes in a compact carrying case and features DMT’s celebrated next generation—and totally portable—Double-Sided Diafold Sharpeners. The kit’s rugged molded case neatly and securely holds all contents and, since it’s completely self-contained, it’s a “greener” choice, too. Smaller in size than other kits, it can stand upright on a shelf or hang by its integral handle for convenient retail display and consumer storage.

The Magna-Guide Kit accommodates grit changes in seconds simply by flipping the patented Magnetic Angle Guide (MAG) to the opposite side of the sharpener.  See just how easy it is in this demo video. No other guided sharpening system on the market provides an attachment like the MAG. In addition, DMT’s unique Aligner Blade Guide offers seven-step angle choices to match virtually any bevel from pocket and hunting knives to filet knives and cleavers, and beyond. Its new deep clamp design incorporates an adjustable center hinge to securely hold knives up to 3/8 of an inch thick. The clamp’s glass-reinforced engineering polymer achieves an extremely strong hold while preventing knife damage from metal clamps.

The Magna Guide Kit also includes two Double-Sided Diafold Sharpeners—one in the Extra-Extra Fine (3 micron)/Extra-Fine (9 micron) grit combination, one in the Fine (25 micron)/Coarse (45 micron) grit combination. Each DMT Double-Sided Diamond Diafold Sharpener offers two-stage sharpening in one convenient, lightweight tool. Transparent handles feature a butterfly folding design to increase portability and protect the sharpener when not in use, while also making it easy to immediately identify the grit combination.

“By using DMT’s guided sharpening systems, you get tools that can sharpen any edge as well as the confidence to sharpen freehand. And you protect your knife from harsher methods that can ruin the blade,” Iovito says. “It’s simple, if you’ve got a high quality knife, you want a high quality sharpening kit. And that means DMT.”

Hunters, outdoor enthusiasts, and military and law enforcement personnel rely on DMT’s innovative products to ensure peak performance from their knives, multi-tools, fishhooks and other gear. They know that all DMT products are proudly Made in the USA, so they’re built to last with the highest quality materials and workmanship, and achieve the ultimate in convenience and reliability on the water, on the trail or at the camp.
