    i got this on ebay for about $20. it takes a few tries to get used to, but after that it is so simple and does a great job. im really impressed with its ease of use and it will put an edge on anything. i have used it on 3 different pocket knives, all my henckels, and some gardening shears as well.

    wow, that thing is really cool. I like the video, but i've never seen a sharpener like that. What is the guide made out of and how does the rod effect the knife? I didnt see how that changed anything in the video.

    theres two different rods, a coarse and a fine. if its dull, run it through the coarse then the fine. if its still pretty sharp, you can just use the fine. there are two guides made of molded plastic and each is slotted at a different angle. one is for utility type blades and one for pocket knives and kitchen knives and such that need a finer edge. ive only used it 10-15 times, and im not great with it, but i can see where it will become easier with use.

    Isn't that set restricted to one angle of edge? Every knife, especially different styles, have a different angle. I feel like a whetstone gives you more flexibility and control over what kind of edge you have as every knife is different.

    of course you have more flexibility with a whetstone, it is free hand.

    due to the two differnet angled guides, you are essentially covered on anything you need to sharpen. the benefit of this is it is virtually foolproof.

    Interesting....

    Another concern is that, isn't it just a honing steel as opposed to an actual stone?

    Personally if someone isn't going to use proper sharpening techniques at home, just send your knives out to get properly sharpened,

    All it is are sharpening rods (which are no nos) with a guide. Theres no way you can properly deburr if you needed to and you are locked into one angle.

    A friend of mine who is a big chef (who does everything, including fine, or decorative knife work, to butchering) gets his knives sharpened professionally for 3 dollars a piece.

    He uses a Mac for a chefs knife..

    Dont forget your sharpening steel!

    I sharpen/straighten mine before nearly every use w/ my Wusthof sharpening steel.


    Just hacked a nice slice into my finger last night with this knife cleaning/trimming some baby back ribs.

    I already have a honing steel and whet stone. Hopefully I'll update my old ass honing steel later on down the line. I've been spending too much money lately
