This is by far one of the most useful tools to have in any shop. The ease of use is such that even a complete novice can sharpen knives like a pro.
I had several tools that needed sharpening and was able to quickly sharpen the tools to like new condition. This is an essential tool, for my toolbox. I wish I had purchased one years ago as I have been able to restore a lot of tools to new condition.
I would highly recommend this product. We sharpened every thing in the house. It was easy to use and worked excellent.
Made in the USA means a lot! It sharpens quickly, whether you need to remove a lot or just a "tune up" on the blade edges. Because it's manufactured flat, it is excellent for planer blades and chisels. The ability to sharpen dry or with only water creates less of a mess than other types of sharpening stones. The no-hassle guarantee is a definite plus, though I would be surprised if you ever needed it.
Just a few light strokes across the sharpener and I restored several knives that I thought would not hold a edge any longer. Well worth the price. This sharpener pays for itself.
Ability to use without oil was great. Clean up is easy and fast. Puts a good edge on knives, even for a novice sharpener.
I found this product to do exactly what was advertised. The convienence of the wood box casing was an added attraction to this product. The sharpening ability was second to none. Best I've ever used!
Upon receiving your product I immediately went to my knife drawer and proceeded to put a very fine edge on my knives. Not having to get out my oil stones and the mess involved with that was a HUGE benefit!
