Pros: Overall Quality, Durability, None
Cons: Ease of Use, Effectiveness
Gatco used to make this item from plastic and aluminum, and other than being slightly flexible, did not cause any usage issues and performed just fine. Fast fwd to today and now Gatco has a newly designed, but very robust clamp made 100% from aluminum.......but they also changed the machining of the tip of this new clamp which is now pretty useless in holding most EDC knife blades for sharpening. Your knife blade when chucked up in the clamp will not hold the knife blade tight enough, so the blade moves and there goes your carefully selected sharpening angle. I think Gatco changed the clamp design to pacify those that complained about the older plastic/aluminum clamp "scratching" their knife blades. Gatco should have told them to put some masking tape on the clamp jaws which would have solved the scratching problem, but no, had to redesign the entire clamp. Now they have a high tech "cigar holder". If you have lots of Gatco stuff (like me) and need this clamp then fine, a good clamp other than aforementioned issues, just be prepared to do some machining on the tip or lots of tape in order to hold your blade securely. Rock on Gatco!

Far better than the standard composite clamp
This is far better than the aluminum-ABS composite clamp that comes with Gatco sets. I have been using my broken composite clamp held together with JB Weld for long enough, time for a replacement. One thing that really surprised me- when held back-to-back with the composite clamp, the angle guides don't line up- so I looked closer, and saw that the composite clamp is 1/2 slot off symmetry! WTF? The new aluminum clamp, by design, is absolutely symmetric. It holds well and I'm not afraid to clamp down with the screws. Mounted in a bench vise, it's a poor-man's Wicked.
