Assembly / Disassembly (Drivers / Bits):
I STAND BY WIHA! WIHA provides hardened steel bits – and for those of you who are new to this – hardened steel bits are critical to ensure you don’t strip bits and get in a nasty situation where your knife is half-disassembled and your bit no longer works! Do NOT buy those cheap 50-piece kits that come with “everything” for like $10. They will not last you, you will regret it.

Blade Sharpening / Polishing:
The KME sharpening kit might seem a bit pricey at first, but in my opinion it is 1) Much more affordable that its competitors, 2) Insanely simple to use, and 3) A small price to pay for nearly-indefinite self-sharpening for all of your knives. You can also create your own “stones” using balsa wood and diamond compound to give yourself a mirror edge at a fraction of the KME polishing accessories prices.
