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.
