Knife Sharpening for Dummies!
Simple, quick and with great results! The Work Sharp system got my used kitchen knife set (21pc.-20 deg.) and various "well used" pocket and hunting knives (14 total-25deg.) all easily cutting newspaper in under 2 hours. Now to me, they are not razor sharp (able to safely cut facial hair), but plenty sharp enough to shave arm hair! I've used stones, sharpening steels, diamond plates and ceramics in the past, but none gave me the consistent and fast edge results as the WS! Then I tried out the 45 degree scissor sharpening feature. Have 10 cheap well used sets hanging around the shop and house for the past 25 years, 6 very nice and expensive sewing\quilting\fabric sets that my spouse uses daily and 4 kitchen heavy duty bone crunching tools. Some had gotten to the point of not even being usable. Using just the medium 220 belt (same I used on the above 30+ knives), I made just 3 light passes on each edge and...WOW, what a remarkable improvement in effortless cutting and trimming. The edge on the cheaper scissors are better than when new and the quality material and kitchen sets are returned to their new factory cutting abilities...Thanks WS!

Overall, the design is very easy to get use to and I can see the sharpening process going even faster for future touch-ups. I can't comment on the long term durability of the sharpener (just got it ), but it runs smooth and quiet and appears to be well made. After 35 Knife, 40 Scissor edges and over 2 hrs. of sharpening, I wore out just one each of the 220 medium grit and 6000 fine grit belts (not bad for total reshaping all of those cutting tools).

My main issues in trying to achieve sharp edges in the past 40 years were "extreme time spent" and "keeping consistent angles". The WS cures both and currently, receives high recommendations from me!!

Pros
Easy To Use
Works Great
Sharpened every knife in the house. Works great, belt life is good after sharpening 20+ high carbon knives, I changed the belts which by the way is a snap. I would highly recommend this product. Kitchen, hunting, machete, all sharpened to a hair shaving polished edge.

Good product, quick shipping
There is a slight learning curve using the Work Sharp. Even though I had read all the instructions, and watched a number of You Tube videos, I did round the point on some knives. Since I am not an assassin this does not really matter - except to my pride. In less than two hours I sharpened all our kitchen knives, all our work knives, a machete, an ax, and a shovel. Ready to hit all the garden tools and the lawn mower when the weather warms.

Just the Best
This is the easiest tool I've ever used. Easy to change guides or to rotate belt to sharpen everything. Belt changes and tracking take about 10 seconds. Everything comes out extra sharp.

Nice Product
Enjoyed using the knife sharpener as soon as it arrived. It did a good job on my kitchen and pocket knives, which varried in metal quality. I tried it on some chisels and found it only OK, since the larger blades are wider than the belt on the sharpener. I sharpened a scissor that I was going to throw away because it no longer could cut, but the sharpener made it function again. It has cheap metal but can now cut well. Nice product but cost a bit. I have other sharpening tools but this has been my "goto" tool for sharpening... the others are not used because they are a bit more clumsy.
