Good in the Kitchen
The Work Sharp Ken Onion is very good at larger kitchen knives, but I don't think it is particularly good for high quality pocket knives and hunting knives. Additionally it isn't very easy to use for axes and hatchets. However, the motor part is very good, you just need to add the Ken Onion Blade Grinder. This provides a much better platform for sharpening pocket knives and hunting knives in my opinion. It is a little slower in that you have to be more careful when holding the blade parallel to the work bench, as the guide isn't right against the belt, but the angles are easier to adjust and the belts for this attachment are longer but otherwise the same as for the basic sharpener attachment, but the longer belt seems to last a bit longer also. And the blade grinder attachment seems to be more robustly constructed and easier/faster to change belts. Changing back and forth is easy and straight forward. With the blade grinder attached I would give this 5 plus stars!

Work Sharp Ken Onion Edition Knife & Tool Sharpen (update)
After using this sharping system for less than a month on everything from small folding knives to large kitchen knives made one thing very clear. It sharpens knives faster than any other sharpener I have owned. The belts last longer than I expected. Once I found a good technique for drawing the knife thru the guide and using the proper belt speed. I was very pleased with the results. The Quick Start guide that is included with the sharpener is very helpful and easy to understand. The only issue to using the sharpener is changing belts. It takes as much time to change belts as it takes to sharpen the knife. The more knives you sharpen in groups reduces belt changes. The three belts I use the most are (X22) medium, (X4) fine, and (6000) extra-fine. Keep a close eye on maintaining an equal ground edge reduces grinding strokes. This sharpener will make anyone that can follow directions able to put a good edge on their knives.
