Ganzo Touch Pro Ultra

The Ganzo Touch Pro Ultra sharpener is a simple yet highly effective system for getting an edge back onto your blade. It is supplied with four sharpening stones of 120, 320, 600 and 1,500 grit which are all easily exchangeable into the main frame and stored in the nylon pouch when not in use.


A marker pen is also included enabling the user to mark the edge to ascertain whether the stone has come into contact with the steel.


The base uses suction to securely attach to a table to make sure the equipment is rock solid. The angle of the grind is determined by the rod at the back of the sharpener which is secured into place with a screw. For larger blades a hand held technique works well allowing the user the freedom to move the edge to the position required. For smaller pocket knives a clamp blade cam be employed to secure the blade into place.

    Basic but effective

    Posted by Elmo on 20th Jun 2019

    First be warned that all the instructions relating to this product are in Russian. It's not overly difficult to assemble but it would make life simpler if they printed in English. The blade stop is literally what it says it's a blade stop not a clamp so be wary of the fact that you need to hold the knife in place as you sharpen it. Like mentioned the stones do need flattening off first to be effective but they do what there meant to do. If your after a cheap basic knife sharpener that puts a decent edge on then give it a go. At this price what have you got to loose really

    Not perfect, but great for the price!

    For those unfamiliar with this style of sharpening system, this is basically a Chinese version of the American Edge Pro Professional sharpener. An equivalent Edge Pro would set you back between £425 and £450. Granted, the Edge Pro has a metal stand rather than the plastic used here. The stones are also flatter, denser (slower wear) and mounted on metal plates rather than plastic. The Edge Pro also comes supplied with a quality hard carry case. There's no doubt that the Edge Pro is of better quality, but £400 better? I guess that depends on how long each lasts, but if the Ganzo wears out, you could buy several before you reach the price of the Edge Pro. Unlike some guided systems (DMT and Lansky for instance), sharpening angle is fully adjustable. There is a quick release feature to change stones. The metal plate on the plinth isn't intended as a clamp (though this can work with thin blades) but is instead intended to be an adjustable back stop for the spine of the blade. To allow quick switching from one side of the blade to the other, the knife is always hand held. However, for those who prefer, a strong magnet can be glued under the front of the platform to hold the blade. Replacement stones for the Edge Pro cost £30 each, whereas basic stones for the Ganzo can be picked up for £2.50 - sometimes less. High grit natural stones are more expensive - up to £10 each. Diamond stones are available, as are both leather and balsa wood strops. To upgrade cheaper stones, blank aluminium plates are available to replace the stock plastic ones. Altogether, there are ceramic/natural stones from 60 grit to 10,000 grit, and diamond stones from 80 grit to 2000 grit. You can also use any official Edge Pro parts with the Ganzo. Long story short, overall quality aside, the Ganzo will function just as well as the Edge Pro Professional, though you may need to spend a little time levelling the stones first to get the best results. You can then build up a wide range of ceramic, natural and diamond stones, along with wood and leather strops, and still have only spent a third of the price. Goes without saying that the KME has a better swivel system, and has both a secure clamp AND quick blade reversal; the Wicked Edge is probably a better sharpener overall; however, for both the initial price, and ongoing costs (replacement stones etc.) there is a lot to like about the Ganzo!
