When I first received it I got out my pocket knife to sharpen, only a few swipes and it was back to its original sharpness. I also sharpened every knife in the house, and my wife couldn't believe it, and my chisels never been sharper.
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?
This product is a great sharpener, it is very versatile and easy to use - a must have for every household!
It is quick and easy to use and produces a very sharp, clean edge. Requires much less work than standard whetstone. Tested it on knives, chisels and gravers and it produced excellent results.
The sharpener is extremely easy to use, and works quite well. I used to have a professional hone my blades, but now I can do just as good a job.
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.
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.
Very handy sharpener and easy to use. Puts a nice edge on my knives.
