    Thumbs up Knife Sharpener review

    I received a Work Sharp knife and tool sharpener for Christmas. They were back ordered and just received it. It rocks. In a couple minutes, you can sharpen your abused/dull knife, to a razor edge. You can shave with them. I highly recommend.

    The advancement in sharpening tools in recent years, has made it much easier for the average person to bring a keen edge to their bladed tools.

    I've been considering this sharpener but all my knives have very very small flats and I'm worried about my ability to freehand. Unfortunately the more precise option I like is the much more expensive and slower wicked edge.

    I've recently gotten onto the belt sander bandwagon for sharpening my bladed objects. So far, it's been the easiest and fastest method and has given me the best results of anything I've tried.

    This looks like pretty much the same thing, just condensed into a hand-held tool and with some preset guides. I only saw one thing I don't like: the sanding belt rotates in one direction, but the way the guides are set up, you have to alternate between putting the blade in front of the tensioner pulley and putting it behind the pulley, in order to sharpen both bevels. This means that on one side, the belt is running towards the edge, and therefore creating a proper burr, but on the other side, the belt runs away from the edge, which will prematurely break off whatever burr has formed and prevent the knife from getting as sharp as it could.

    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    Is this sharpener for a beginner or do you need to have some skill to use this. I am looking for an effective but simple sharpener.

    This actually looks very interesting. Do you know how it handles chisel grinds and serrated edges?

    Serrated edges, works great. Most of my pocket knives are half/half. They are razor sharp now. As are my steak knifes. It even sharpens gut hooks on hunting knifes. I highly recommend this sharpener.
    I have not used for chisel grinding and do not plan on it. That is not what I got it for.

    I must be below a caveman then because that thing was a PITB!!!

    Took forever to get the correct bevel on my knife. In fact I never did get it, I gave up after many, many times trying and went back to using a stone

    I agree. I'd also offer that it doesn't allow for multiple sharpening angles for varying uses and/or types of knives/tools. Having said that, if it works for you, is easy to use and as a result you keep your knives properly sharpened, that's great!

    My personal favorite is Apex's EdgePro.

    A properly set up sander used by someone who knows what they're doing is fantastic though.

    +1, on that. A truly excellent product. Though I got the EdgePro Professional, well worth the few extra bucks IMHO.

    Im not much into knives, let alone sharpening them, lol but Ive had a few sharpening items, about 4 years ago at a boat show I seen this thing called the Warthog V-sharp, seemed pretty cool and very easy, but dont they all "look easy to use" lol the thing was $80 but I went ahead and grabbed one..
    This is by far, the best sharpener Ive ever tried, so easy, so fast, and yes, it gets knives sharp enough to shave, everyone knows when I sharpen my kinves, cause I have bald stops on my legs, lol
