Work Sharp Knife & Tool Sharpener
I have had this type of sharpener for about 5 years.And have used extensively, to sharpen my hunting knives, and our kitchen knives, not to forget my wifes sizzors.I have tried many kinds of sharpeners in my past and I will never go back to them. I bought this one as a CHRISTMAS gift for my son.We were on an elk hunt in Wyoming, and I had my sharpener along and ,we used it to keep our Knives sharp as we butchered two elk.We deboned them completly as you can imagine that is a lot of cutting, but our knives were easily kept sharp ,by using the work sharp sharpener .I would highly recomend to anyone.My son was very impressed with it, that is why he got one for CHRISTMAS.

I have gone to the Bass Pro Shops many times. Every time I go I get my pocket knife sharpened there. The machine they use always did a very good job. So I bought one for home use. I like it. So I bought one for my brother.

For years I've used Smith and Lansky stones to sharpen knives and it did a great job. I bought the WorkSharp sharpener and belt kit after Christmas. After watching the video, my first sharpening attempts were scary....scary sharp! Knives I thought were trash will now slice paper with ease. The sharpener is quick, quiet, easy to use, and mostly clean. It does create a little grinding dust if you do a pile of knives at a time like I did. The belts held up extremely well, although I'm already planning to buy more so I never run out. If you want sharp knives, machetes, hatchets, and scissors (did those, too) this tool is incredible!!

Out of the Stone Age
I never mastered the use of sharpening stones. The ceramic sticks or any of the other sharping tools I used never seemed to do the job. I bought this on the advice of a friend that had one. It works great! The only flaw if you can call it that is that there is no support when you get to the tip of the blade. The belts are easy to change out and no tracking problems. The belts run true on the wheels with no adjustment. So simple a cave man can do it. I got all of my hunting knives (6) back to shave shap in 25 min. start to finish. Considering the price of good stones this is worth the price.
