Patented Uniform-Parallel Point™
It has come to our attention that other brand
sharpeners besides the Lindsay sharpener are being used to reproduce the
Lindsay patented parallel point. If you have been taught to grind,
make and use this point without being made aware that the point is patented or
that the license is necessary, you are infringing on the patent. If this
is the case, please fill out the license agreement at this time.

for the point license agreement, review this article by attorney Michael Artemis

The Steve Lindsay template based sharpener is
made specifically to reproduce the Lindsay patented point easily. It is quick
and less expensive than other sharpeners on the market. The basic sharpener with
a Universal 116 degree template is $89. Additional templates for other V angles
as well as other various points are around $23 a set.
