"Work Sharp knife and tool sharpener"

My brother has NEVER been able to sharpen a knife, until I got him a work sharp! Worked so well for him, I had to get myself one. Works as advertised! Only word of warning is to be careful and not overheat the blade or you can damage it.

Not only do I get fast results with all my hunting knives, but my wife loves that all of her kitchen knives are sharp again!

I've never been much good sharpening blades. I've got a work sharp and it does the trick for me. I have to pay attention so as to not round off the tip.

These things are amazing. After I did all my hunting knives, I went through the kitchen knives too.

I bought one a year ago and still have not tried it out on some old knives and for sure not on the wifes kitchen knives. Why you ask; "she might either cut her fingers off or turn against me". Dull is better as she cuts veggies backwards and for sure would get hunt.

Besides, we use the Havalon Knife now. Gets dull, pop off the dull blade and put a new one on...presto, back in business.

I like the Havalons too - even if I do average 3 blades per elk. I'm thinking of trying the new Outdoor Edge replaceable this year. I can't ever see going entirely to Havalon style knives so the Work Sharp will see a lot of use at my place. There is no way I would want my wife using Havalon in the kitchen.

+++ on the Worksharp. One of the best products I've ever had period! Sharpened about 10 different tools as soon as I opened it and just couldn't stop looking for other things to sharpen!

Practically fool-proof sharpening.
Very fast, with great results.
Best $60 I have spent in a long time.

I keep the kitchen knives to include steak knives sharp now as they used to dull the fastest at my house. Take about 15 knives to the work bench in the garage and in about ten minutes they are very sharp and it's pretty fool proof as well. Works great on pocket knives and hunt knives however I still like the Havalon for big game.

Still on the first belt and well worth the $70, but I bought it for more some how at $90!

Best knife sharpening system I have tried. I really like that you can remove the knife guide and than rotate the housing to sharpen shovels and pruning shears. Stellar product.

I hate to WEAR down a knife like the Work Sharp does to a blade. they do sharpen the blade good but I still cringe a little when I use this sharpening machine. It will wear the blade down (off) on any knife. I carry an Outdoor Edge replaceable knife blade while hunting Colorado.

I have a Work Sharp and it certainly does work. My only concern is that it may be taking a lot of steel off the blades I sharpen with it.
