Pros: Durability, Ease of Use, Effectiveness, Overall Quality
Quality product, I may buy another.
At home I have whetstones, Lansky, diamond stones, ceramic, etc., but I hate waiting until I'm home to touch up an edge. As a consequence I have several pocket stones, rods, etc. Most are toys with plastic handles or are uncomfortable to carry. This is neither. The diamond is 600 grit which won't polish the edge but is good enough for a quick touch up. It's all brass so it should last decades. EZ lap makes quality diamond products, so the sharpening surface should last. It's as comfortable to carry as a pen. The sharpening rod is longer than in most similiar items, and it's solidly made of brass. What more do you want from a pocket sharpener? Don't buy a cheap copy - this one will last.
