GATCO Micro-X Double Duty Sharpener
The carbide shapeners are excellent, the ceramic posts are too short for easy use.

Great Sharpener For Price Extremely Easy To Use
I bought this sharpener about a year ago and am still using it on a regular basis. I have always been a knife guy but was never good at using any of the sharpening techniques with other methods. This sharpener is great for many types of knife steels. It puts a razor edge back on my swiss army knives, emersons and a very wicked edge on my esees. The key with this sharpener though is you do have to maintaing your knives with it. Meaning you cant let your blade get completely dull and expect this sharpener to get your edge back to factory sharpness. However, if you use this after a few sessions of using your knives it will put an extremely sharp edge on the blade. You don't have to use it every time your you use your knife just when you notice it starting to be a little duller than it was before. Most impressive is how it maintains my esee knives after batoning and shaving kindling with it for a couple fires I run my esee through this sharpener and the edge is back to being able to shave off my arm hair again.

Somewhat confussing
The carbide side puts a great edge on any knife I sharpen but the ceramic side is confusing as to how to use it even the directions are not very clear.
