The Block Sharpener started off as a small family business. My Grandpa Paul Block Sr. and my Dad Paul Block Jr. in Capac, MI started our business in the early 1970’s. They are the original manufacturers and designers of this style sharpener. They had sold lots of their sharpeners to meat packing plants, butcher houses, and the Detroit Eastern Market, Gun and Knife shows, car shows, sport shows, and flea markets in Michigan. In 1988 Grandpa and Dad had added our last name Block as a Trademark and had that stamped in the handle of every sharpener made, just like Case and Buck and any other PROUD American Made Business owner should do. Now the Block sharpener business is ran by My Wife Billie Jo Block and I Paul Block III. I had worked with my Dad and Grandpa as a kid selling our sharpeners for extra money on the weekends. In 2004 My Wife and I took our family sharpeners to florida on our family vacation to make a little extra money to help pay for our trip. We had ended up in the Orlando Gun and Knife show, In 2 days we had sold out selling over 400 sharpeners, So we had more sharpeners shipped down from Michigan and ended up staying here in the Beautiful Sunshine State. Since 2004 My Wife and I been going around the Country pitching and selling our sharpeners, Every weekend We attend different sports shows and gun shows giving us the chance of meeting lots of famous people and making lots of new friends on our travels. At our shows we demonstrate how our sharpener works and all the different types of knives and tools that we are able to sharpen. I Paul Block III have sharpened easily over 1000’s of different style knives and tools for free to prove that our sharpener really does work. My Wife and I had been to 16 different states and over 130 different Cities where sport shows are held. Now our sharpener has been recognized world wide. Over the Years i had come to realize the we do make the best sharpener by far. The only problem for some people was the flat slippery handle , The Original Sharpener was made to be bolted down or pressed down firmly. After 10 years of saving for a new mold to be made My Wife and I knew what we could do to make the best sharpener even better. I had worked on the flex in the sharpener handle for different angles and for the pressure points that allows the pins to flex, we changed the sharpening rods from a course to a finer rod, I had felt the new changes would be better than the original sharpener making it easier and faster to get your knife razor sharp. My Wife Billie Jo Block added the safety features, such as adding new over shot of soft rubber over the hard handle makes it stick to any surface great, Making our sharpener safer to use on the table, kitchen counter, tailgate, wood stump or even on the side of your boat. The new patented thumb guide gives you great control when sharpening outdoor tools or when you may not have a flat surface to work off of. Block sharpener will never sell out at any cost, WE will remain American made for long as I own it and will be Pasted down to the Next generation that’s in the family tree.
