I saw one in a hardware/supply/everything under the sun store Friday. They had one set up on the counter to try but all I had was some utility knives I carry to work with me.

I assume they are easy to use?

What is the best model to buy for drop point folding hunting knives and fillet knives?



If I can use it, it's easy. As far as I know, they only have oneodel that does everything

They are so easy to use my Wife can do it and in fact she does.

My teen age boys are experts at it.

I have 4 or 5 Rapala Filet knives, the black bakelite ones blade is about 7 inches long, very flexible, pointy point. I have a bunch of drop point folders and fixed blades from Buck and others. It sharpens everything. If, like me, you think serrated blades are useless, it'll take the serrations away. And I have some cheap kitchen paring knives and really long bladed kitchen knives. Sharpens them all. Easy-peasy

This is what I bought

Good question. It is not set up for convex contour knives. You would have to have a very steady hand. It would be exceptionally easy- no, it positively would grind a flat on the blade. I been giving it thought for awhile and am sure your profile would be altered.


You would have to freehand it and the belts are moving at a pretty good rate. My skill level freehanding is at the minus level, that's why I have the lansky's. I got the Works two seasons ago and have abandoned Lansky's.

I know a guy in Wisconsin who took an old grinding wheel from a water-powered mill and uses that for his convex profile blades.

I couldn't sharpen a knife for crap with a stone or any other knife sharpening system.

Bought a Work Sharp and all my knives are razor sharp now.

Okay, true Work Sharp confessions:

I took a butter knife and put an edge on both sides just to see if I could do it. You can. But as a butter knife, maybe a bad choice.

I took a serrated blade knife and ground them off, put a real blade on it. Turns out this is what Wife used to cut homemade bread.

This is not recommended activity. My Wife got really really angry at me. I love it
