Tru Hone sharpenersSince 1973, Tru Hone sharpeners have been the sharpener of choice for professional and commercial knife users. It all began in 1972 when Fred Gangelhoff was selling Chicago cutlery knives in Florida. He was shown a state of the art small knife sharpener which he wasnt too impressed with. He knew he could do better and so used his knowledge to develop the Tru Hone knife sharpener with the help of some retired machinists. Their HG3 hollow grinder and their HR8 honer are part of their designs. The Tru Hone knife sharpeners are made in Ocala, Florida, USA, still as a family owned business.
