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 used it on everything from my knife collection to my bench chisels, turning tools and planes. It was easy to use and gave a superior edge without the mess that my oilstones make.
Ability to use without oil was great. Clean up is easy and fast. Puts a good edge on knives, even for a novice sharpener.
Over the course of many years I have obtained and used a variety of knife sharpeners. The DMT 6" diamond whetstone sharpener is far superior to any other I have used. There is no substitute for sharp knives and there is no substitute for a great sharpener. Just a few quick strokes maintains a great edge. What more can you ask?
I was impressed at how fine an edge it put on my filet knife in such an easy way.
If I would have known how easy it was to have a sharp knife, i would have bought one of these a long time ago. Highly recommended.
I would recommend this to anyone who use knifes on a regular basis. I do a lot of hunting and having a sharp knife is key. I like that the sharpening stone only uses water to lubricate it. The instruction were very simple and to the point. It took me seconds compared to other sharpeners I have.
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!
