I love this product! It is made in the USA and it is well made. Easy to use and comes with a DVD that explains how to use it in just a few minutes. I sharpened all my kitchen knives and they work really well now.

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!!
SHOCKED !!!! CAN NOT BELIEVE IT DOES WHAT THEY SAY!!! AS I AM WRITING THIS, I 'M LOOK AT MY LEFT ARM AT ALL THE PATCHES OF MISSING HAIR!!!!!!!!!! IT MADE ALL MY KITCHEN AND HUNTING KNIVES "RAZOR SHARP"!!! I JUST BOUGHT EXTRA STIPS !!! A MUST BUY!!! THROW ALL THE OTHER IN THE GARBAGE! EASY AND SIMPLE TO USE! I CAN NOT RAT AND RAVE MORE!!!!
First, this is no reflection on Walmart. The sharpener was as advertised. The shipping time was more than fine. As far as the sharpener goes, the one I bought must have been the first generation model. It does work. But, and there is always a "but" I was somewhat disappointed in the overall operation of the unit. The motor bogs down if any pressure is applied. There is no way one could sharpen a lawnmower blade with this sharpener. It will sharpen a knife that started out reasonably sharp in the first place. Think of it as a more expensive chefs steel.
