The KME Broadhead Sharpener is now angle adjustable!
We up-graded our original fixed angle broadhead sharpener with an easily adjustable sliding roller bracket.
Use the KME wrench (included) as a screwdriver to loosen and tighten the locking screw on the bottom of the unit. Use a Sharpie or other felt tip marker on your blade bevels to assist in accurately finding the correct angle for your particular broadhead, then lock the bracket down in place and sharpen as usual.
Finding the correct angle for the blade you’re sharpening:
1.) Clamp the broadhead or blade in the jaws.
2.) Color the factory bevel with a sharpie or felt tip marker
3.) Run the broadhead over the stone briefly.
4.) Look closely at the bevel to see exactly where the ink has been removed by the stone.
In this picture we can see that the stone is removing ink from only the very cutting edge of the blade. The majority of the ink is still on the bevel. This means we have the angle set too high.
Note: There’s really no problem with sharpening at an angle which is higher than the original factory grind. In fact, all we’re doing is creating a secondary micro-bevel (also known as duplex bevel geometry) which greatly increases the cutting edge durability. Cutting edge durability is even more important with broadheads than it is with knives, so adding a micro-bevel to your broadheads isn’t necessarily a bad idea.
5.) To adjust the sharpening angle, loosen the screw on the roller bracket and slide the bracket further back. Retighten the screw and run the broadhead over the stone again. (The wrench that comes with the broadhead sharpener doubles as a screw driver for this).
This picture shows that the angle is set to match the original factory bevel angle. Note that the ink has been removed from the cutting edge and from the entire face of the bevel as well.
By sliding the roller bracket forward or backward as needed, we can match just about any factory bevel angle.
