👤We had some smaller paring knife types that had gotten dull over the years. Even though I tried a manual sharpener, it didn't change the sharpness for long. The knives of ours were nearly razor sharp, thanks to the electric sharpener. If you can hold the knife steady and use a steady, no pressure added, pull, then this product will razor sharpen all your knives. If you don't pay attention to what you're doing, the sharpening angles won't work, and you can damage a blade if you put too much pressure on it. I used some sharpening oil on a cloth to clean the blades before sharpening them, and noticed that the blades weren't so rough after using the oil.
👤The first stage of the knife is taken out by the wheels inside the sharpener, like the pictures show. I had knives that were useless, and you couldn't cut yourself with them. It worked very well because it was done through all stages three times. You now have a noticeable dip from the heel, it is easy to remove like 1-2mm of blade width. The first stage does this. I had other knives that were dull but not useless, and I ran them through the 2nd and 3rd stages and they are back to normal. Very nice. If you haven't done it before, you'll ruin the edge of a couple of knives, and this works and I will likely use it with some regularity. I got pretty good at it, but it's just a pain. If you've never used a stone, you can learn to grind a knife in 2 minutes, but you won't get that nice polished edge from this grinder. This works, it's easy, and the blade is sharp, could the edge be sharper? This works.
👤I ordered this for my mom over a month ago and just got to see it. Even on the smallest setting, the closing setting is too large. This is not the same as the one I have from Chef's Choice. The final wheel is the worst part. It is a hard grinding wheel, like the first two. Do not buy. Go get a chef's choice for quality.
👤I decided to try an electric sharpener after looking at a very daunting task of sharpening 20 kitchen and steak knives that I had let degrade over the last 4-5 years with a wet stone and steel. I am very happy that I did. The machine made quick work of dull, round, nicked up blades that were so dull I could see them without fear of a scratch. I started with the stage 2 slots. I didn't want my knives to be ground down quickly. This was enough to reedge the knives and then a few passes through stage three, followed by a series of passes on a ceramic hone, and I was the owner of sharp knives. Make sure you hold the blade steady with little down pressure and a constant rate of draw to get the best results. To finish off the edge, follow the directions and have a hone or steel. This machine is a great addition to my kitchen and I would not hesitate to buy it again. I ran my knives through the stage 3 a few times, hit those with my ceramic hone, and marveled at how much sharper the blade was. If you're not sure if the machine is worth the money, or if you're not sure if it will work, stop now and order it. It is very good. If you want to enjoy the new edge on your old blades, you should get this machine, it will save you hours of work and allow you to wet grind all of your knives.

👤I think this product is worth five stars. I was worried that this would be a poor quality product, but it turned out to be very good. The flat surface has a very strong suction cup. When you use it, I will give you some advice. It will suck better if you add liquid. I use a spray to clean it. Good results! If you have good skills, you can use it in a vertical position. It has 3 stations that are incomparable to other similar products. It has a grooves of the metal. Excess metal can be removed from your knife with the help of a hard metal. You can use a very blunt knife. This product has a ceramic edge. The texture of the ceramic is very delicate. The ceramic slot won't hurt your knife, you can use it to grind your knife. I like the function of its sharpening scissors. The function of this grinding scissors is not found in any of the sharpeners I have. My scissors become very blunt when I use them in the kitchen. It has become even sharper.
👤This is a great product. I have one arm. It's difficult to sharpen a knife with only one arm because you can't hold it down without something, and this one works great because it's cups to the counter or smooth surface, and it's saved me from many accidents.
👤They only use ceramic rods to edge scissors when I look at a scissor sharpener. Don't cut it with leather shears or kitchen scissors. The cutting edge on scissors is put on by this sharpener. It has a ceramic edger and a rough repair tool for knives. It's a great tool for the money, but not an electric sharpener, it's just a one horses rear end power. It does its job.
👤I am an activity director at a senior living facility and a craft nerd. I own a lot of scissors. At least 20. I am on a tight budget and they get dull over time. A few months ago, I tried another brand. This one is far superior to that one. I like the control I have on the blade to make it sharp. It only took me a few minutes. I'm curious to see if anyone comments on the cutting ease at our next class.
👤What a shock. I didn't think it would do the job when I received it. It was a surprise. The counter was getting cluttered. I had to twist it a bit to get it off. I have a lot of things. Everything I threw at it was sharpened in a very short time. I was blown away. The little sharpener is small and it took me several hours to sharpen everything in the house, but it did an outstanding job and I have lots of places to store it.
👤I already have 3 knife sharpeners, but none of them do a good job at sharpening scissors. I saw this product and thought I would try it. I'm impressed. They worked on my scissors after I followed the online instructions. I'm very pleased with the results of sharpening 4 pairs of scissors. I didn't try this product on hair shears or sewing shears, but I would give it a "B+" for regular everyday scissors. I now have sharp scissors. I will have to wait and see how long this product lasts. Hopefully, this product will keep sharpening my scissors.

The base is made of aluminum.
👤It is called Wicked Edge. Over the years, I've used other methods to sharpen my blades. I've made a belt grinder and a whetstone system. I wanted the results from the whetstones, but they weren't able to get them. Lansky kit had issues with the way it was used, and I messed up the screws that were used. Since I heard so many good things about the products, I thought it was time to give it a try. The Pro Pack 1 arrived a day earlier than expected. Kitting the pocket knives in need of help was started after it was set up. It was easy to put the edge back onto these, most had never beensharpened. They're very sharp now. It's crazy sharp because it was used on my utility knife. It's sharp at the point because of blade flex. Picked up a case to hold the system so that I could take it with me. I used it at my sister's place. On Sunday, I shaved two for mom and three for my sister. Sister's knives were dull. They are now very sharp. Or sharp. I took care of my sister's ones last night after taking three more home. I had to put them in folded cardboard so that mom wouldn't take them back. I'll be touching up my knives next. I only have to sharpen the larger blades once in the last 18 years. They will be much easier to maintain once I use this system. Some people want the granite base with the system. I don't see what the point is. The aluminum base is large enough to hold it's mass. It can happen with granite, so I won't worry about that. I wouldn't want the whole system to weigh more than it is now. I cut the foam to fit the setup and left the base on the system inside the case. I put the leather stones into plastic bags and into the case after I use them. I will end up with the scissor attachment since I have a set that needs some work. I can see getting some stones with higher levels of grit. If you're considering getting one of these systems. Just do it. I was only on the fence to get one. The kitchen blades have a 16 degree edge. The Pro Pack 2 wouldn't benefit me. My pocket knives are done at a higher temperature. If you need to apply the blades at a certain angle, get the setup. I'm picky about how my blades are treated. I don't want anyone else to sharpen them. I don't have cheap knives, but I do have one of the 9 Kaji slicers. I can now get anything to a razor edge in 30 minutes or less.
👤I couldn't get a kitchen knife that sharp in a long time. It's not cheap, but it's worth the extra cash. I have a set of knives. I determined the angle was 18 degrees, which is a degree higher than the stated 15 degrees. I just sharpened the knife with the 100, 200, 400, 600, 800 and 1000 grit. I was able to see the performance of the stones with a cheap PC microscope that I found online for 25 bucks. The repeatability is what makes it nice. I only took a few minutes to set up each knife. Highly recommended.
Email customer service is available in the USA. During office hours, you can call them for urgent service. Made in the USA. Since 2007, Wicked Edge has produced the highest quality knife sharpening systems. There is a limited LIFETIME WARRANTY. They stand behind their products and are proud of their sharpening systems. The hard carrying case has a foam insert. The pack contains 100, 200, and 400 diamond stones. A pack of diamond stones. Extra Fine 800 Grit and Ultra Fine 1000 Grit Diamond Stones Pack are included. It's quicker and easier to use a Wicked Edge sharpener. The angle is changed on both sides of the sharpener with a lever. The one-step knife clamping requires no additional tools. Sharpens can be up to 15 feet long. The angle range is from 13 to 27 degrees. Main angle adjustment in 0.50 degree and micro angle adjustment in 0.05 degree.
👤This machine is amazing. It facilitates the duplication of excellent results. The weight and materials used compliment the user's control. The poor functioning of the screws designed to maintain the user's set angle for sharpening blades has caused me great frustration. During the sharpening operation, they come loose and change the angle of the blocks. The tie waster is necessary to correct the bad honing. It is a shame that this machine has a $5 part that can be easily designed better. I hope that the manufacturer will retrofit the parts so that we can all be happy with them. If that happens, I will write another review.
👤The device is amazing. Clay and the team at Wicked Edge have to continually visualize improvements to stay at the top of the pack. The micro angle adjustment knobs may loosen after working the blade. I'm thinking about getting some reverse thread nuts to stop this from happening. The angle profile will not be congruent if it happens while not being noticed.
👤I bought this because I have more money. There are many sharper tools that work equally, but I have money and want to be flashing. I don't know the brand, but I like the case. It seems to be of the same quality as a pelican case. It's a fancy apparatus to show people how good a knife sharpener you have. The jaws that lock the blade in place seem undersized, and that's the complaint I have. This was made with 2 - 6 knives in mind. The only way to get a good sharpening angle is to use a chef's knife with a 8 - 12 inch blade, as the only way to hold the knife in a 8 - 12 inch is by using a clamps. It would be a lot easier to use a 6 jaw. The blade front to back needs to be aligned to get the correct angle across the arch. It seems like the engineers just gave up and needed to put a "good enough - ship it" stamp on the product for such a fancy tool with all these things to keep perfect alignment. If you don't get one of the cheaper ones, then you should too.
👤If you want your knives so sharp they are scary, this kit is worth every penny. The bomb is a learning curve and a break-in period for the stones. Break in the stones with a cheap $10 kitchen knife. I took a few tries to get everything right, but once I did, I was able to sharpen everything. The 1200/1600 ceramic stones and the leather strops should be added. You can see your reflection in my knives that have a mirror finish. They glide through anything with no effort.
👤I wondered if my money was well spent. It was easy to set up. I spent the holiday sharpening my kitchen knives after watching a video. All of my kitchen knives pass the hair and paper cutting tests. I had a Buck knife when I was in the Army. The old Buck Knife is sharper than it has ever been. It was dull as a butter knife and now it is razor sharp and can cut hair and paper. It takes practice and a Sharpie marker. You can master it after you watch the video. I am happy that I bought this system. If you have a lot of dull knives, I highly recommend this.

👤It takes a lot of time and patience to hone. This set is easy to use, but you need to read up on how to do it right or you will spend a lot of time with very little practical results. The additional flattening stone is useful, but I don't think the blade support is ideal because it would change the angle of the knife. Since I use this stone for woodworking tools, it's not a big deal, but I know that there are better angle guides for knives. Water stones like this are soft. It is important to not chip out sections when sharpening chisels. Don't ask me how I came up with that.
👤I haven't used one in a while, but it was easy to use. It came with instructions that helped remind me how to use a sharpening stone. The stone has a rubber case that can be removed. It helps keep the stone in place if you use it on either green or white. The rubber holder stays in place even if the surface gets wet. The stone is heavy but works well. The green and white are the same size and the white is 2000 grit. I found that the knives that I had that were dull were sharp almost immediately after sharpening one size. I found that the white side helps keep my knives sharp. I use the green side for dull knives and the white side for dull knives. The stone doesn't chip or crack easily.
👤This novice is now capable of having my knifes so sharp that I can slice paper with ease in testing, because of the honing stone and sharpening videos. I tried to sharpen them with a belt sander and bench grinder, but they didn't work very well and I lost a lot of metal from the blades. The rubber base beneath the bamboo holder was very useful in keeping the stone from sliding around my kitchen counter during the sharpening process.
👤I have a lot of knives that need sharpening, so I bought this. I am one of those handheld ones that are used for quick sharpening. It wasn't doing the job for damage knives. I was able to get most of the damage out of my knives. I remembered that I have a hatchet that I like to use. The hand held hatchet was sharper than the hatchet it was sharpened. I had a sword that I accidentally dinged the crap out of, and I used a whetstone tosharpen it. It took out the ding and made it sharper. It is definitely worth the investment. The fix-it stone is nice at shaving down the sides when you're done, but not much else, and the non-slip works well on wood surfaces, but not much else.
👤This is the first whetstone I have used. The product is well packaged and manufactured. You should soak the stone for at least 30 minutes. You can place the baking sheet on the stone since it will fall around it as you use the knife. You should watch a video on how to use a whetstone. One titled "Beginner's Guide to Whetstone Sharpening" was very informative. He shows how to sharpen a knife by stropping it.
Work Sharp Knife and tool sharpener is a new and improved product. The new features of the Original Work Sharp Knife and tool sharpener make it easier and faster tosharpen. Flexible belts can be used in your home or shop to put a razor sharp edge on your blades.

Sharpening guide increases precision and repeatability to get the proper edge angle every time and provides a scratch resistant leather lining. Change from 25 outdoor knives to 20 kitchen knives in a single guide. The two speed motor provides all the power you need for heavier sharpening and grinding tasks on tools like lawnmower blades, axes and other common lawn and garden tools. The edge guide supports the knife all the way to the tip. It can be flipped out of the way to make sure you get the full length of the blade on certain knives.
👤I was on the fence. I have a Lansky system, stones, and hones. I will still do it by hand when I need to. I have a large collection of tools. It is a chore to keep them sharp. The Work Sharp shines there. firewood is burned for 5 months a year. I split most by hand. This thing is great for axes. The axe is the most time consuming part. I will be clearing some of my hunting trails, a few passes on this and my machete ready to go as spring arrives. I wanted to re-profile a few of my knives. It took me less than 20 minutes to work through the various grits. I took my time and could have done it quicker. The re-profiled blade looks like a factory edge. If I took a few knives to my local shop, it would have cost me a lot more. I go to my shed now. If you are a woodsman, hunter, fisher, camper, then you are a DIYer. I would highly recommend this tool. It is very high quality. The system runs smoothly. I will be buying other work sharp products.
👤I've researched knife sharpening. I used to use a cheapo harbor freight 1x30 belt sander with angle attachment. It wasn't good. I sunk about $100 into the whole thing and now I'm afraid to throw it away. I am in love with the worksharp I just tried. The worksharp beats the wicked edge in terms of cost, labor intensity and speed. In terms of cost, setup, and speed, worksharp beats the tormek. Worksharp beats lansky/rod style systems in terms of labor intensity and speed. Oh. I haven't tried the scissor sharpening feature. I might get a maul in the future, if this thing can do the things that my kitchen knives can. I'm going to marry it. Buy a ring and propose to someone. The worksharp will get you a smooth and sharp edge in under 60 seconds, and it takes less than a minute to change belts. You only need 2 strokes on each side on the medium belt, and 5 on each side with the fine belt to achieve a working edge. The edge is sharp and I have to ease off because I notice I'm slicing into my plastic cutting board. Kitchen prep was twice as fast and half as hard as it was today. I don't need a mirror. I don't need a lot of diamond honing. I need a sharp knife almost every day in the kitchen, and I need a cheap way to maintain it. The worksharp is what it is. I'm in love. I'm going to leave bad reviews on other sharpening systems and leave good reviews for the worksharp. I'm a fanboi of WS.
👤This is the best knife sharpener I have ever owned. I've used wet stones, rods, and the like. This setup is perfect. I carry a razor sharp enough to shave. My tomahawk is sharp enough to cut paper cleanly. I've used it on everything from hunting knives to kitchen knives. I haven't had to replace a belt yet. My son's souvenir knife needed sharpening, and it put a great edge on it. I would probably be careful with cheap blades. A lot of metal will be lost. I sharpened a butter knife. There are 3 different bands. The edge profile is developed by heavy grinding. The red is medium for cutting. For honing, the grey is fine. If you want to shave, you may want to get a leather strop. I used my filet knife to slice through fish like a hot wire through butter. There is no need for $300 knife sharpeners. Get this one. There was a novelty hunting knife. The metal is bad and dull. It took just 5 minutes for the razor to be sharp. I am telling my friends to bring their knives because I have fun with it.

👤I can assure you that this will make your knives sharp. The picture is of the instructions the ER sent me home with after stopping the bleeding and patching me up. That is not what I had in mind when I was talking about Thanksgiving tips. knives will slide through spinach and go through finger and fingernail like a hot knife through butter after being sharpened by this whetstone Straight cut, very clean. Impressive. Don't be a moron, just take it slow.
👤I've been using this stone for months and have started to find that the fine side does provide a nice sharp edge, but the 400gr side is wearing my knives unevenly, which causes me to be unable to finely sharpen the entire length of the blade when moving to the fine side. The logo in the middle of the blade is causing more material to be removed than the rest of the blade when I sweep across it. I verified this by going down the length of the fine side and seeing the wear pattern on the stone. At home and at work, I've verified that the edge is not straight and curves inward towards the spine before the tip starts, which is where my knife typically stops traveling over the logo. I'm going to throw the stone away. It was nice at first, and I used tosharpen many knives in my kitchen. I've found a wear pattern in 3 knives that are maintained using this stone. This is not acceptable.
👤This whetstone is great to practice on and a good entry level whetstone. The 400/1000 grits seem to be correct. If the blades are in bad shape, the 400 is not valid. The 1000 is enough to get you to shave hair. It doesn't come with a booklet or anything like that. The lighter side is 1000.
👤I wasn't impressed at first. I only used it for a short time on each side. I watched a video online with a master chef using his stone, and he prepared his knife for 10 minutes on each stone before moving up to a better level. I used a sharp knife on each side of the stone for 10 minutes, and it was perfect. I never used a traditional sharpening steel or rod because the knife I have from 2008 is so dull and impossible to sharpen. The hard German steel sat in my knife block for a long time. I spent 20 minutes with this stone this morning and it was back to being sharp. Highly recommended.
👤What are you doing? You sold me a product that can cause harm? This product contacts food. I didn't bother opening it. Everyone, please don't buy this unless you're comfortable with the possibility of cancer entering your food from here.
👤This coarse whetstone is great for sharpening knives that are dull and old. One of my knives edges looked like someone tried to cut barbed wire. The edge of the stone was smooth and free of flaws after ten minutes. I was cutting onions and apples with a knife after it hit the fine stone. I would soak this stone for at least 12 hours. It sucks water. The surface needs to be dry.

👤I'm new to knife sharpening. I had to unlearn what my grandpa taught me. I've had mixed results so far. I use a cheap tool stone from harbor freight for cutting a bevel when the blade has been damaged or does not have a proper bevel. The stone in this kit is soft. Very soft. I have taken it out many times. Keeping a steady angle is difficult. The stones at this price point are meant for learning. I've been playing with knives. I know my technique is way off, but I have been able to get sharper edges on the knives I've put on the stones. Consistency in pressure and blade angle is something I'm trying to work on. The bowling out of the 400 makes it difficult, but I can still get a decent edge. I think they are worth the money. Go for it. I took a blunted Pampered Chef kitchen knife, which was dull to the touch, and had it sharp in about an hour. If you have a damaged blade, you can get a stone from Harbor Freight. The stones will work well from there.
👤Do not order! These are simply clay blocks and will buy an oil stone. You should drag your blades through the dirt. I have been sharpening knives for 45 years and this is a waste of money. If someone pays you to take their money and throw it away, you should do it! The rating is too high.
👤The best purchase I ever made. When I purchased it, it was as good as it was because my knife didn't cut a fine layer of tomato without touching it. I would recommend users to learn how to sharpen their knife. It took me about 30 minutes to get the knife to what it is today. The knife is sharp. The surface gets even with use. You should draw a grid in pencil and then use the grinder stone to file it. The surface stays flat during all use.
👤Why 5 stars? I will let you know. The amount of reviews for this product would wash out my actual rating, which would be 0. You should know that the two stones are the same color and are painted to look different. I own other high quality water stones by Shun and bought these to sharpen wood working tools, dumb on my part, but there is no difference in texture or grit. I couldn't tell you what the actual grit was because the stones are painted with the same. The 8000 is laughable and the 400 is a way to smooth it out. It's not as smooth as my 1000. The whole thing is a joke and should cost $20 For $20, who cares if it's the right type? You think you are getting a deal for $50-60. You are not. Take $55 and buy a combo stone from a reliable source. It is one less stone. Tell you what. The package includes a second stone that seems to be worth it. If you buy this, I was fooled so you don't have to be. Thank you. We can get drunk and discuss our stupidity.

👤The stone arrived with a significant curve. I am providing an update on my order after being pressured by the seller to remove my review. I requested a replacement after I received a faulty stone. The new stone was slightly warped, but everything else is okay. Despite this, the stone functions well despite not being obvious. My knives are sharper than they used to be, so I'll give them that. Since Amazon was able to provide a timely replacement, I would have given 3 stars, however I deducted an additional star for each time I was asked to remove my review for compensation, which I will not accept based on principal.

👤You get a lot of stuff for not a lot of money. You get what you paid for. The bamboo base and the flattening stones are both useful. I am not a fan of the angle guide. The main problem with the stones is that the grain size distribution is wide and the scratch pattern on the stones matches the courser pattern. The 3000/8000 stone's size is overstated. I think it's around 800/2000 grit, based on the feel of it and the scratch pattern. You won't get close to the polished edge using this stone. You will get a lot of stone and accessories that are good for sharpening tools. Stay away if you want to do more. I returned the other one.
👤I know how important it is to keep your knives sharp, as I work as a meat cutter. I keep my work knives sharp with an oil tri-stone at the store, but my set at home has been dull for months now. I decided to invest in a good set of whetstone as they are functionally the same as oil stones and this set proved to be phenomenal. After soaking the stones for 20 minutes, I went to work and used knives that were even sharper than the ones I use at my job. I keep the knife at a good angle and it cuts hair and cuts paper without a problem. It's easy to use for anyone who wants to sharpen knives, and the guide makes it fool-proof for beginners. Highly recommended.
👤The Bob Kramer knife sharpening video is a good place to start. I used to have access to whetstones when I was hunting. A Buck and Skinner are outdoors. Since then, I have used steel on my cheap kitchen knives. There are various German and French makers. Very useful. I decided I needed a decent set of knives. I bought some of the new Chinese style knives and wanted to keep them in tip top shape. I soaked the 400 and 1000 combo, watched several sharpening videos, and settled on Bob Kramer's to start sharpening. I was able to restore the edge on the old knife, and take a chip out a Zwilling Kiritsuke style knife, a cheap slicer, and an old favorite paring knife. If you have good eye hand control and are an artist, you can use Bob Kramer's style tosharpen a knife. It isn't rocket science. Control and muscle memory. If you can't replicate the movements Bob makes in the video, then you should take a pass on sharpening and have someone else do it. And make a mess. The challenge was that the blade was hard cheap and had been abused for too long. The edge was dull and chippy. It took me about 20 minutes to get the edge geometry back with the 400 and I was able to get a decent edge back on it. The fat beg chef's knife has been one of my favorite veggie knives for a long time until someone wrecked it with a steel. My partner. I don't think so... I was able to use it. The water is something to think about. Dribble water frequently and dunk it in water to wash it. I put a towel under the wood holder to keep it from slipping. The set is good for learning to maintain knives. If you are like me, you have a bunch of knives that you can use for practice before you have to sharpen your new sexy knife set.

👤This is my first decent whetstone kit. My comparison is with cheap whetstones that you buy at grocery stores. Why was my knives being put against cheap whetstones? I upgraded to diamond sharpeners of various kinds and need to review them again. If you can master the art of sharpening, there are still actual whetstones out there. I've always thought of getting a fancy whetstone set. This one is budget friendly, looks great, and has a lot of extras which make it a great value. You are getting 4 different grits, 2 different levelers, an angle guide, 2 whetstone holders, and a wooden base. I used the leveler to fix my parent's whetstone. The kit is hard to master. I had mixed results without the angle guide. Sometimes I would get very sharp, sometimes not. I did well with the angle guide. The corner chip came slightly damaged. I thought about reducing a star for that, but the reality is that it was probably an accident and doesn't affect usage so it's probably harsh. If I get good at this, I might add other whetstones of different types. If you are a beginner like me, it is advisable to watch and rewatch multiple sharpening videos.
👤This is my first set of water stones and, while it is a great bargain, there are some challenges to using it. I am still learning but I have found this so far. Water stones are supposed to be grinded and polished by a slurry of loose particles. The higher the grits, the less particles come off the stone. Rather than creating a fine particles, they rub off metal filings which fill the pores of the stone, which requires frequent work with the leveling stones to expose the grit. As I get more experience with the set, I might find the trick. I will add to this post if that is the case. If that makes any difference, I am sharpening planes and chisels instead of knives. They give you a bamboo stand, so seal it. It has a good no slip base but bamboo is very porous and mine started to rot. I soaked it with oil that seals and is mold resistant. The back of the flattening stone is a rough grinding stone and I use it often to reset the tool angle. The cleaning stone is a great addition to the set of tools to maintain the stones.
👤I've been using a 1000/4000 whetstone for a year or so on my kitchen knives and chisels. I don't sharpen often enough to keep my stone flattening setup. I make a new one every time I go to sharpen. I got this set for flattening stone. I don't know how to check the accuracy of the stated grits, but I do know how to rub my fingers on them. I can tell that the 8000 grit is higher than my stone. I might buy a leather strop in the future. The product sharpens my utensils. It's safest to cut armhairs off. Don't ask.
Also included: The WE 100 is a precision sharpener. The pack contains 100 and 200 diamond stones. Medium 400 Grit. There is a diamond and leather pack. The base is made of aluminum. There is an 8-inch leather-stropping wheel. The flip of a switch can reverse the direction of the rotation. The maximum precision is provided by 115 RPM. The WEN 42704B Sharpening Kit is compatible with a wide variety of accessories. Includes an onboard carrying handle, an angle guide, honing compound, and jig for sharpening chisels and planer blades. Includes an onboard carrying handle, an angle guide, honing compound, and jig for sharpening chisels and planer blades.
👤I wish it had a knife jig, but I can see how that could raise the price. I have a decent eye and steady hand. I kept every knife in the kitchen, including pocket and skinning knives. For all, mirror polish and shaving edge. I haven't tried the provided paste. A very fast sharpening from a very slow stone throws a lot of water. Have a towel with you. The stone is very heavy and it will soak up a quart of water.
👤I bought this grinder from WEN because it was supposed to have a adjustability, but it turned out to be a lie. The angle guide is adjusted but you have to manually change the angle while holding it in the other hand. I was not enthusiastic about this as I thought the arm had graduated adjustments. I was disappointed to learn that the chisels and knives that are included with the unit are not for knives, but for chisels, and that they must be purchased separately for an additional 45 dollars. I am going to return the unit completely unused because it doesn't fulfill my purpose.
👤I bought this to sharpen my tools. Even without the jigs, this works great. The tools and knives are sharp. You need to make sure you get a wheel dresser as the wheel will wear and need to be flat to sharpen correctly.
👤I had no way of sharpening chisels in my shop, so I bought this. The included tool rest makes it possible to get the same angle on your chisels over and over. The water bath for the stone keeps your blades nice and cool, and the leather stroping wheel on the other side will finish that razor sharp edge for you. Win.
👤The motor froze after a few uses and was very noisy from the beginning. I returned the machine after I sold my boat. It was easy to return to Amazon.
👤I have used it on tools. It works well for honing them. This won't change the blade, but it will make it stronger. You still need a grinder.
👤It worked well for a few weeks. It started making a loud noise. I contacted tech support. They were very helpful and I got a new unit.
👤I bought my first WEN in December. It ran smoothly and gave good service for about 3 weeks. The motor wouldn't run in either direction. I bought a second WEN after returning it. The second WEN motor was not up to par. As soon as the bearings were started, they would emit a high pitched whine. There is excessive play in the bearings. I don't know what to think because I didn't read about it from other users.
👤No tiene nada, pedirle a otros super caros, funciona para lo, ya he afilado varioscuchillos y los deja...solo es cuestin. Sin embargo, tanto la piedra, pues se ven de mediana calidad. Un accesorio para emparejar la piedra tal, pero un vende la marca Sueca.
