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.
ease of use, great edge, simple instructions
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!
This product is a great sharpener, it is very versatile and easy to use - a must have for every household!
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.
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 am a professional sharpener. This did an excellent job in sharpening some chisels. I would also use it on knives and axes.
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.
