      does a good job, belts have a shortlife

      I use the knife and tool sharpener, and have been pleased with how sharp it gets my knifes. My disappointment is the belts especially P 220 Medium do not last very long. And when measured by the frequent cost of replacing. This is an EXPENSIVE piece of equipment. This is the best web-site for belts.

      WorkSharp works great!

      I've wanted to be able to sharpen knoves and scissors conviently for my wife and bought this tool recently. It does a great job, is easy to use, fast, and nice and compact. My wife couldn't be happier. A couple of caveats: Get some extra red and purple belts because they will wear out. Also, I find that you do not need to sharper the whole width of a scissors blade edge. Just sharpening the area near the leading edge of the blade will work fine.

      In my 60-plus years of knife sharpening I have never come across a better, easier way to put an edge on a tool. WORK SHARP has an absolute winner with this little sharpener. Combine this with the quickness of use and you have a sharpening system that literally can't be beat!

      one awsome sharpener

      i sharpened over 20 knives in less than 45 minutes. My electric fillet knife (i would say) is probablly sharper know than when it was new. This is a great little sharpener. it definetly will put a razors edge on 90% of you knives.

      Knife Sharpener that works

      I use the product to sharpen knives. It is fast, effective and easy for everyone to use. The only limitation is that the 6000 grit belt worn out faster than the other belts.

      Great Product

      This is simply an awesome product! It has sharpened every knife in the house to a razor sharpness. Our kitchen knives are so sharp I'm wondering if I need to put up a sharp knife warning. Also, my wife's pruning shears for the garden are sharper than they were new. The one drawback is that we need a greater assortment of belts available.

      Finally a sharpener that sharpens!

      In addition to doing a great job on my knives, those old sissors I had laying around are now useful again. No need to go buy more now!

      Incredible Product!

      I just purchased this product and I must say that it works miracles. I have never been able to get my kitchen knives this sharp this fast. The ONLY drawback is that it sharpens so fast that you must change belts often. They don't wear out, it is just that in less than a minute you are done with one grit and ready for the next one. This is one incredible product and I don't say that lightly.

      Finally a knife sharperner that works

      This knife sharpener will sharpen your knife if it has any integrity at all. I have used it to sharpen $5 knives and $100 knives to a razor sharp edge. If used correctly will not scratch the blade up and works only on the cutting edge of the knife. The belts hold up pretty well, but I feel they should be priced a little cheaper for what they are.

      How nice to have a great product

      Got right to sharpening kitchen knives, my pocket knife and garden tools. All were sharpend in a matter of minutes with no effort. This same task using my diamond bit hone took a huge amount of time with no asssurance the blades would be sharp. So far this sharpener does the job right the first time.

      Great sharpening tool.

      This is a tool that is easy to use, and seems to be very effective. I've only sharpened knives and scissors with it so far, but it should be just as effective on mower blades and axes. Really great tool!

      I love it!!

      Really does the job of sharpening kitchen knives and scissors. Now I easily slice tomatos as thinly as I want. Carving meat is a breeze now also. A few quick strokes on this sharpner and you get a very keen edge. Haven't tried it on other cutters yet, but am certain I will be just as pleased.

      A Timesaver

      Prior to using the Work Sharp, I used diamond stones which took longer to obtain results with. Now I sharpen quicker and can get my knives sharper than I could with stones.

      AWESOME PRODUCT!!!! I bought 4!!!!!!!!!

      My husband has been trying to get our knifes surgical sharp with diamond stones, and other similar type products that did a good job, but didn't get them as sharp as he wanted. We saw this in the handyman magazine and purchased 1 for us and 3 more as gifts. With-in 15 minutes of unpacking the sharpening system every knife in my kitchen was surgically sharp!!! Definitely recommend this product to EVERYONE!! It's worth every penny and then some!

      The best sharpener I have found

      This sharpener can sharpen a knife like it should be in much less time that I can on a stone and does it with very little effort. You don't have to be good at sharpening knives to use it and get great results. Thinking about giving them as Christmas gifts to those people that i have to sharpen knives for!

      One of the easyist to use tools I have

      It is one of the easyist to use tools I have ever used. A perfect edge every time. I even bought one for my son.

      PERFECTLY does the job.How rare is that?

      If you are looking for a knife/tool sharpener, don't hesitate. BUY THIS ONE! We almost bought a small, expensive sharpener at a kitchen store and I am so glad we found this instead. The accuracy, and the ability to use it just about any tool/knife/scissor makes it the PERFECT choice. I wish everything I bought was as well made and delivered the way this does.

      Simplicity come to life

      Bought very expensive cooking knives many years ago. Do a lot of home cooking for family and over the years all knives stunk. Wife was always complaining to me about them. Now they are the sharpest knives I have had since buying new. Can't get them this sharp any other way. Sure you can use other methods but it takes all guess work and error proofs the process. Even my wife can do it it's that simple. She's not dumb but most wouldn't want to do it. With this device she could do it. Great home device! I will be even recomming this device for my work. We currenty use a grinding stone to sharpen scissors but with many errors and even injuries. This device will improve life of equipment and lessen the potential for injury.

      Fantastic tool

      I found that I could sharpen 3 knives during 1 commercial break (about 1 minute per knife). That's fast.

      Works well

      I used it to sharpen all the kitchen knives. It worked well on the serrated knives also. One of the few sharpeners I have found that sharpen serrated knives.

      This product works

      This product performed as advertised. It made quick work of my cutlery and scissors. The price seems steep for sharpening knives but the convenience maybe worth it. I used it on both Forschner and J A Henkel knives. Each knife took only seconds to achieve an edge. I did not use the finest grit belt to hone the edge. The medium grit provided a satisfactory result. I like the ease of use and the size allows for kitchen drawer storage. This makes it even more convenient. I would highly recommend this product

      Great tool, worth the money.

      I seen this tool several times before I bought it. I have water stones that do ok but makes a mess. This tool is quick, easy, and my kitchen knives are sharper now than when I bought them brand new. I should have bought it when I seen it the first time.

      This tool is capable of sharpening most of my knives to a shaving sharp edge. I was even able to slice through paper with a full sized axe! Its fast and easy. Not a dull knife in the house. It does what it's designed to do excellently. Solid construction and smooth motor.
