Diamond Sharpner That Works!
I have used this brand for almost 20 years and found it does an excellent job on kitchen knives, pocket knives, utility blades and larger blades. Results on the steel are very similar(as seen under magnification) to the results of a good Soft Arkansas Oil Stone. The secret is to use LIGHT pressure and let the diamonds do the work. If you bear down, you will fill up the matrix of the sharpener and ruin the diamond sharpener. Also, this is a light duty tool, not suitable for sharpening axes, garden tool or machete. Garden tools are better served with a flat bastard mill file. For my high grade kitchen knives I use a few light strokes of the Ultimate Edge Sharpener and follow up with a medium steel. Knives will last a very long time and offer superb performance. For pocket knives a few strokes will bring back a nice edge. Also use on utility knives, sharpening the razor blade after cutting up cardboard boxes. This is a tool that really works....Always let the diamonds do the work and use very light pressure when sharpening.

Through it in the pack
Perfect size for your hunting backpack. Its makes short work of maintaining a skinning or boning knife.

Ultimate Sharpening
Don't use much pressure. Gently will give the blade paper cutting edge. Sharpens straight and curved blades, with ease.I have never used a sharpener that was this easy to use.

Great Sharpner
Diamond sharpeners are the best. This one is perfect for the kitchen because of its size. The only thing I would change is to make the handle not so bulky. It would fit in my drawer better. I assume they make it this way for safety as to not cut your hand when sharpening your knifes. Great product. First time I ordered from KnifeCenter.com and it was easy & smooth.

Seems to work pretty well
It might take me a bit of time, but it seems like it can be mastered with a little practice.
