Pros: Durability, Effectiveness, Ease of Use
Cons: Effectiveness, None
Great, but slightly flawed.
I use this product to get a quick usable edge on a blade and to remove small chips and imperfections. When I'm done with it the blade will take hair off of my arm. It is easy to use. The diamond plates cut quick. The fine plate is what most seasoned sharpeners would consider somewhat coarse. I doubt that I will ever have to use the coarse plate. The ceramic rod works very well but you have to pay close attention to what you're doing since it isn't flat. I don't use knives with serrated blades so I can't speak to the effectiveness of the small ceramic rod meant for serrations. The unit does what it was meant to do which is why I only took off one star for what I consider a couple of cons. The first con is that the angles aren't adjustable. Secondly, I don't find the strop very useful as I prefer a large area to strop on. In a pinch I can use newsprint or a belt if I need to strop. I would prefer an ultra fine ceramic or even a small steel for a chef's knife in its place. Overall, I'd recommend this for anyone who might need an edge quickly but finds it impractical to carry around their entire system. I would also recommend it to someone who might need to remove a chip or roll from a small blade but doesn't want to pony up the cash for a diamond bench stone. No one should buy this product with the expectation that it could serve as their entire system.

Darn thing actually works !
This self contained sharpening system is almost perfect for ALL of anyone's sharpening needs ! When I first got this unit I was very skeptical about it's advertising claims . After a few tries it turned out very very awesome ! During our outdoor activities my GF is famous for making excuses about leaving our sharpening gear at home . One time I was in a rascal mood and left her alone with the Work Sharp Field sharpener .I had treated the instruction sheet with a waterproof kit and left them in the unit . Soon she was sharpening everything that she could get her hands on ! I bought a dozen of them and gave them to people who appreciate and use gear . My nephew D really loved it ,the built in broad head "wrench" was better than his specialty one . My older brother got one and took the credit for introducing it to the family . What a guy ! My sister and I both had issues with the magnets that retain the diamond plates . My son had flipped the plates over for storage and lost one of them . Bummed out , I called the manufacturer to order a replacement , I was so surprised that they warranted it and express shipped me a replacement FREE of charge ! I immediately bought another six units . Out of all people that were given a unit we all agreed that adding a lanyard and increasing the overall size that a larger one would be the perfect field sharpener .

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.
