Gets the job done well at an affordable price. Perfect size for pocket knives and small fixed blades...you'll have problems though with larger blades i.e. culinary knives, but I like how compact it is. Considering how affordable it is I gave it 4 stars, would have gotten 5 if it could accommodate larger blades.

I was a bit skeptical to begin with, but I soon found that this is a great stone system to take with me on trips. I'm the guy that all the relatives call to sharpen their knives that look like they've been cutting cinder blocks with the year before. Unless you're starting with a knife with a very bad edge you'll only need to use the medium and fine sides.

best one i've seen. works well if know what you are doing. that's where dan sadly sucks. instructions to use this contraption are more impt than the sharpener itself. instructions enclosed are an embarrassement. now that i consider, i think a 4 star instead of 5 may be the only way to get pointy-headed arkansas dan to correct the problem. you can make a mediocre knife exceptional with masterful sharpening, or you can completely destroy the blade if you attempt to adhere to dan's present shoddy instructions (which had to have been written in mainland china). the honing oil is wn the roadtotally inadequate volume-wise. may need to buy a separate container, but i'm sure ole dan realizes that. if run out, use baby oil, nothing of thick consistency as it will "gum up" the sharpening stone. disappointing thing is that dan has a really great and unique product, but he will get few return buyers with his less than poor efforts on instruction. i'd be in much distress if it were not for the most noble illiterate red neck down the road who can weld, plumb, run a dozer, fix electrical circuits, make central air come to life, and also sharpen a knife to cut SINGLE sheets of paper (cause he can't read dan's abysmal instructions. thank the LORD for illiterate rednecks who seem capable of doing anything !!
