Great sharpening set

This is a top notch sharpening set that will do about any knife or axe that needs a razor edge.

Good ol' Whetstone beats this...hands down

I used to think I wasn't very good with a whetstone until I used this product...I'm thinking a bit different now. I'm betting this sharpener does just fine with soft steel or itty bitty pocket or kitchen knives...but it sure as heck did -nothing- for my Marine Ka-bar, my Puma Hunter or my folding Buck Hunter. The clamp scratched the heck out of my Ka-Bar, which is fine...it needed a bit more "patina" anyway, it pretty much dulled what had been a razor edge on my Puma (despite researching and using the correct angle of attack) and it did -nothing- for the super hard steel on my Buck...All that and it's just plain awkward to use. It's a rare day when I have to take something back to Cabela's but this sharpener IS going back tomorrow and my good ol' whetstone is coming back out of the closet.

Junk

The clamp will not hold the knives firmly for more than a minute, you have to constantly stop and tighten the clamp. The longer the knife the worse it gets. One of the stones fell out of its plastic holder. The final result will not slice paper as a test cut. I like the idea of a device holding a constant sharpening angle but this sharpener fails miserably. Piece of junk.

Good Knife Sharpener

If you have trouble with holding edge angle on regular sharpening stones, the is a pretty good sharpener.
I can't get a "hair cutting" edge on knives with the sharpener, but the edge does hold sharpness well. One trick - For knives with large bending radius - don't use the supplied directions of honing perpendicular to the blade edge - its best to hone in direction of blade in order not to get "flat spots" on the curved section. If you know geometry, you should understand.
Cons -1. for very narrow filet type knives, its diffcult to hold the knife with the device and use the 15 degree or less setting, because the diamond cutting stone will bottom out on the holder.
A good knife sharpener once you work with it a bit.
