My wife bought me this system for Christmas...and I must say it works pretty damn good. Now, every knife, pair of scissors, axe, shovel blade, ...anything that has an edge ...is now razor sharp !!

The Work Sharp Knife & Tool Sharpener uses flexible abrasive belts, and is able to sharpen not just straight bladed knives, but also curved knives, tanto blades, filet knives, serrated knives, gut hooks and virtually any other shape of knife blade. Using precision angle sharpening guides to ensure that you get the proper angle every time...there are two guides included: a 50° guide for hunting and outdoor knives (25° per bevel) and a 40° guide for thinner blades and kitchen knives (20° per bevel).

Good call

I picked up one of those at the Phoenix Gun Show right after they came out. After several months it developed a high pitched whine like a bearing was going in it. I called their Customer Service about it, and they sent me a replacement arm (the upright post in the triangle configuration). When that didn't solve the problem, they sent me a new one (I had to kill the old one and send a pic first).
So, a great product with excellent customer support. And they have a Ken Onion model for heavier work that I have my eye on.

I always wondered about the durability of the belts. Is there a tension adjustment for them? Do they stretch? Looks like a great idea. If they support it as well, it's a heck of a deal!

Hehe... so how's that work exactly? Do you spin it around your neck like a hoolahoop and hold the knife against the outside edge?...Or maybe you just get a big stick for an axle, climb a hill, hop on and sharpen as you're rolling downhill?...Simplicity in design, flexibility in use... What's not to love?
