Pros: Durability, Ease of Use, Effectiveness, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Enables you to get a consistent sharp edge every time!
The build in guides work great to give a a consistent angle and razor edge especially using the on board leather strop. Knives that I hadn't had an razor sharp edge in years, with some work and time (no its not a magic wand that you can pull the knife though once and have a razor edge instantaneously), where shaving sharp and beyond. I like the fact that has ceramic hone course and fine with fishhook grove, separate ceramic serration hone , course and fine diamond and leather strop sharpeners. The diamond panels lift off to reveal a small "compartment" with built in 3 or 4 blade broad "wrench". Its a lot of tool for the money and It now is really is the only hand sharpener that I use now because it just that "foolproof"! Now one "downside" is the guides are built for a 20 degree angle use on most outdoor knives. I have learned to compensate for this for kitchen knives with 17 degree by starting further down the guide ramp.

Pros: Effectiveness, Ease of Use
Cons: None
Excellent tool for knives up to 15cm/6" or so with a 20 degree edge.
This is a very well designed and executed sharpening gadget. I used it to sharpen some completely blunt (new, never sharpened) work knives and it was easy and fast to sharpen each one to shaving sharp. The only limitations are its length, which limits its easy use to knives up to 15cm/6" long. I have sharpened a 25cm/10" chef's knife on it in stages which worked well but was a little awkward. The instructions are clear and simple and the design and build quality are both very good. The device is easy to clean after use and the diamond panels are removable. The only niggle I had with it was that the leather strop was rougher and less covered with honing compound than I'd have liked. I replaced it with my preferred leather and compound from Lee Valley, which too a couple of minutes, using a small bit of of double sided tape. Replacing the strop with a strip of aluminium and 3M micro finishing abrasive would make it most excellent. I recommend this tool to anyone who needs a simple, effective, portable solution for smaller knives.

Pros: Durability, Ease of Use, Effectiveness, Overall Quality
Cons: None
No need for anything more.
This is amazingly easy to use, can produce a razor edge from extremely rough edges in mere minutes. I would recommend to anyone as a one tool option for all sharpening needs, from axes to scissors. the only other sharpening option that i believe my be slightly better but not as field usable is the Spyderco sharp maker
