"Slicing Edge Sharpening System" formerly known as Charlies Wheel of Fortune.

These make putting an edge on a knife blade quick business - if you know what you're doing (see warning below). One wheel is a type of grinding wheel and the kit comes with grease to dress it and keep it cool during use. The other wheel is a hard buffing wheel and some buffing compound is also included.

Contains sharpening wheel and polishing wheel made to fit any 1/2" shaft bench grinder. The shaft hole is 5/8" in diameter. We recommend a tapered shaft for the motor end. Use these wheels to put a professional quality, razor sharp, burr-free edge on your cutlery. Each 8" x 3/4" wheel will sharpen 300-400 knives before requiring reconditioning. Includes one CW-2 Reconditioning Kit. Easy to use. Bench grinder not included.

Please note: It is very easy to "over-sharpen" a knife and ruin it or to have a blade caught and pulled from your hand. Please don't try these wheels if you don't feel confident holding a sharp object on a fast turning wheel. The KnifeCenter assumes no responsibility for damage done to your knives or self with this tool. Please use carefully and at your own risk.

Pros: Effectiveness, Ease of Use
Cons: None
How dangerous can you get?
Great system, but even the PDF shows sharpening a knife by holding in on top of a wheel that IS TURNING TOWARD YOU WITH THE BLADE FACING YOU. If it slips, it's coming straight at you, and you just sharpened it. Use a little common sense and turn your grinder around so the wheel turns AWAY from you. Sharpen with the blade on top of the wheel, as expected. Yes, it can make the switch position awkward, but if you slip, the knife is going to fly away from you, not straight at you.

wheel sharpening system
Once you get the hang of its easy, but if dont know what your doing you WILL destroy your knifes. That being said if you know what your doing you can have shaving sharp mirror edges In seconds. the grit gums up and comes off pretty fast but that can be fixed. i would definitely buy these again

Pros: Effectiveness, None
Cons: Overall Quality
Slicing Edge quality control issues. No technical support.
I mounted the wheels on a new buffer and it vibrated so much that the machine walked around. A dial indicator registered 32 thousands inch runout on the wheel with the grit and 27 on the other. A knife skipped and bounced on both. I called the technical support number on the wheel and the answer I received was that it was the buffer not the wheels. So, I took a very coarse sanding sheet and resufaced both wheels and now they run true. The grit wheel was a problem as it was like rubbing two peices of sandpaper together. After all that the system runs very smoothly and does a great job on knives. The system would be a good value if you are willing to fix the poor quality control issues.
