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 65 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 belt 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!!

Work Sharp Kinfe Sharpener
Great buy and product.Very easy to use;It sharpens every thing that I use from knifes,tools,blades,bush-hog blades,axes, and anything that needs an edge on it. The instructions are easy to understand and the DVD helps to understand how it works also. It is the best sharpener I've ever owned. I would recommend it to anyone.

A lot of hype, but not much force
I read a lot of hype about this product, prior to buying it. However, I have gotten much sharper results from an oiled wetstone. I should have saved the money. I can only hope that with a lot of trial and error it can at least make a start to sharpening my knives.

good product but with a slight learning curve imo buy a cheap set of knives from dollar store to practice on before sharpening your pro set of knives

When I first tried to use this I did 3 kitchen knives and was very pleased with it. The next time the spring loaded wheel would move slightly to the right and would rip the belts. Also, the little wheel for adjusting the belts is very hard, if not impossible to move. I toyed with it for a while and every time I thought it was ok it would revert back to being off. So I am very disappointed.

Almost a Must Buy
I had wanted one of these since my brother sharpened my knife with his, several years ago. It always seemed like whenever I thought about it, I just didn't have the extra money. When Northern put it on sale and I had a $10 discount, it was finally time to get it. I carry a knife every single day and have been for the last 30 years or so. One thing I never got very good at was keeping my knives sharp. I found it tedious and not always rewarding. I've recently forced myself to learn proper sharpening and care techniques because I was tired of not always having a sharp knife on me. A knife is like any other tool - take care of it and it will take care of you. The Work Sharp Knife system is a great starting point. Like every other method of sharpening, it takes a little time and practice to get the most out of it. So, if you think you can buy this product and be a sharpening wiz right away, forget it. It is, however, worth the time to get it right. Working with curved blades can be tricky until you learn how to use this thing properly. The guide falls short of allowing you to finish a curved blade, so you have to finish drawing the blade through on your own. It doesn't take long to learn how to do it and is worth the effort. I strop my blades after using the Work Sharp and between uses to really get a fine edge. The Fine Grit Honing Belt doesn't really do the job. It's amazing what a piece of leather can do for you. Other than these things, I'm very happy with the Work Sharp system.
