Work Sharp as part of Darex - a family focuses on sharpening
Work Sharp is the division of Darex that specialises in the grinding and sharpening of outdoor knives and tools. Darex is already managed by the 4th generation of the family and has a company history of over 45 years. Based in Ashland, Oregon, USA, the company specializes in industry-leading grinding tools and exceptional customer service.
Darex was founded in 1973 in Beecher, Illinois, USA. The letters D, A and R from the company name stand for the initials of the three generations (then) of the founding Bernard family: David, Arthur and Richard. Son David and his father Richard founded Darex, grandfather Arthur supported them with his energy and expertise from his own Bernard Welding Company. In 1978 the company moved to Ashland, where it still has its headquarters today. In 2012 the 4th generation, Matthew Bernard, joined the family business. Today he is CEO of the company.
Darex is proud that all tools and equipment are manufactured in the USA. "We are committed to developing high quality tools with high quality components." After all, the purchase of such a tool is an investment, which is worthwhile thanks to the high performance and reliable stability of the products.
The company develops, designs and assembles knife sharpeners and sharpening machines under one roof. As far as possible, the majority of components are sourced from North American manufacturers. If components come from overseas, they must meet strict quality requirements.
Work Sharp - everything for sharp knives & tools
Work Sharp offers a complete line of manual and electronic knife sharpeners to facilitate and accelerate the process. The automatic knife sharpeners offer a performance that knife manufacturers also offer their customers. The manual devices ensure that manual sharpening becomes a professional process.
In our online shop, for example, you will find the Sharp Ken Onion Edition knife sharpener tool, which enables simple and reliable sharpening of the blade. One of the reasons for this is the infinitely variable adjustment of the grinding angle and the speed of the grinding belt. This allows the knife sharpener to be used for a wide variety of purposes and knife types. Even the highest quality outdoor knives can be sharpened with the Sharp knife sharpener tool. This is guaranteed not least by the name of Ken Onion, the famous knife smith from Hawaii.
