I have a couple of different sharpening sets, but I have to admit that I’ve come to respect the angle one can achieve with a paper wheel.  A friend led me through sharpening my kitchen knives using that technique, and I was blown away by the results.

On the other hand, this is a lot easier on the wallet at $75 — assuming you don’t have a spare grinder sitting around the shop — and looks pretty slick.  Hell, we found some even better deals on it via Froogle and Amazon, too.

    This is a great sharpener. Normally I prefer flat stones but when your serrated knives need a touchup, this is just the ticket. Plus this takes the guesswork out of what angle you’re sharpening at and the ceramic sticks work really well.

    I’d like to see one of these in person. I’ve seen several products like this but I’ve never been impressed with the quality.

    My friend Bob has one of these. He’s a former Marine armourer and swears by it and from the results I’ve seen I have to agree.

    He sharpened my dull Benchmade in very few strokes, giving it a nice new razor edge. I’m sure it takes a little bit of practice, but it’s a lot more versatile than fixed ceramic rods (like those little Fiskars keyrign sharpeners) or a rotating disc kind.
