Pros: Effectiveness, Durability, Overall Quality
For Bladesmen who know what they're about
There are sticks and stones, hones and dog-bones but a small, finely made piece of Tungsten Carbide mounted in an index finger and thumb grip is the sharpening tool I want with me. There's a key chain ring on the grip and a pocket clip on the firmly mounted cap. If you don't know squat about steel, or know the difference between a bevel and and edge,you should probably NOT use this sharpener It is not "easy" to use, nor is it difficult. It takes a little practice. and devotion to the art, science and craft of making edges sharp. One more thing -keep your mind on your work. The quality seems fine. I think it will hold up but I've only had the CarBee Sharp for a few weeks. But with a section of the tool designed for sharpening, another for refining and a third for burnishing, the 3 1/4 inch long by 1 inch wide and 1/2 inch deep CarBee Sharp can't be beat.
