Great product, excellent at getting a dull knife or tool back to razor sharp. Free hand sharpening can be difficult; it is sometimes hard to maintain the consistent angle you are looking for on your edge bevel. With this product, all you need to do is keep the knife straight up and down. One suggestion, while the two sets of ceramic rods that come in this set are sufficient for most of your sharpening needs, you may want to consider purchasing some additional rods compatible with this device. For major re-profiling or restoring a significantly damaged edge, you may want to pick up the diamond rods. These are more aggressive than the coarse ceramic stones and will cut down on the sharpening time significantly. For a truly polished edge, you may want to pick up the ultra fine stones.
I can't say enough good things about this sharpener. The price was steep but the reviews were very good so I took a chance. After the first few knives I was getting the hang of it and was able get my knives razor sharp. Sharp enough to shave with. I recommend watching the video a few times and keep the booklet handy. You will need to work with it several times to get the hang of it, but once you do, you will be sharpening every knife in your house and maybe even your neighbors! It's really easy and kind of fun. This is one great knife sharpener. It is well worth the money and I highly recommend it to anyone.
Can't say enough about this product. Does exactly what it's suppose to do, maintain your edge. Where it excels is its ability to take a sharpening challenged person like myself and make you feel like you know a thing or two. If you're trying to create a new bevel you will need to get the more aggressive stones. Other than that, I highly recommend this product.
I've been looking for an economical way to sharpen the household knives and after reading reviews decided on the Spyderco system. It's simple to use and I really like the fact that it all fits in a compact storage container. I like this over electric sharpeners because it takes off a minimal amount of material to get the job done, extending the life of the knives.
This is an excellent sharpening system that brings a very fine edge to all types of knives, and does so very quickly and easily. I collect a lot knives, but am not very good at keeping their edges maintained as every time I try to use a sharpening stone, I can't seem to get the right angle and end up making the edges dull. Electric sharpeners don't seem to get the edges as sharp as I would like either, so I've been been very frustrated in all of my sharpening efforts until I found this great sharpener by Spyderco. The design of this tool pretty much eliminates the need to set your knife at the right angel. All you need to do is to hold the blade like you would to slice a tomato and the sharpener does the rest. I've been able to put excellent edges on nearly all of my knives. I'm told that this also does a great job on serrated edges, but I haven't attempted those yet. But for straight edged knives, I highly recommend.
The Spyderco Sharpening is great. It is well made, easy to use and works like a charm. The price for this item through Wal-Mart is excellent, since the manufacturer sells it for $99 on their site as the recommended price. Some buyers at other sites bought apparent "knock offs" that looked like this product, but were just cheap copies so make sure you are buying from a reputable business.
Walmart cut everyone's price by LOTS. I took the free shipping and it was on my doorstep in 3 days..... Now that is EXCELLENT service! As for the knife sharpening kit...I Love it!
Cant say enough about the edge this product delivers. Booklet and video are very informative. I used to use flat stone for sharpening before, never again, gets my knife from dull to arm hair shaving in 15 min roughly. Simple product, easy to use, excellent value for price point.
Its the easiest way to get your knives scary sharp, from dull to shaving sharp in about 15 minutes, the dvd its very good, step by step guide and product instructions make this system very complete.
Most of my knives are already sharpened but one was not. My wife instantly noticed how sharp it was and I had not told her I had done.
Easy to understand DVD product is good quality! Works great!
This is my second Spyderco Sharpener. As I liked it that much. A fantastic tool for all your cutting needs.
Im a beginner and this thing is fun! Practice with your inexpensive blades, kitchen knives etc. Take your time watch Sal's video a few times and learn what and how what you are doing because this thing works. Read the forums and understand the SM is not really made to re-profile but to maintain a knifes edge or in finishing stages, this thing makes a sharp edge especially on my Spydies. Great product, made in USA and inexpensive.
Everything is great! Like the item very much. Cheapest price around and fast delivery!
I could tell that this was a quality product the minute I started reading the instuctions. They were very user friendly and understandable. The included DVD was great and explained all the functions of the product. The actual sharpener was amazing as well and did everything I expected. I had this product recommended from a friend and I would definitely do the same. Great product for someone who needs a sharp knife on a daily basis.
This is the simplest and best Sharpener out there under 100 bucks. The triangular rods really make it like 4 different grit stones. An average person can use it since holding the blade vertically solves the whole blade angle problem. It is simple and fast. I highly recommend it!
This makes knife sharpening a no brainier. Just follow simple instructions.
I bought this knife sharpener for my boyfriend and he loves it!!! He uses this almost everyday! He says its the best knife sharpener he's ever had... We went to bass pro shops and compared the price there and their price was $79.99!!! I would definitely buy this product at Walmart!!
This knife sharpener by Spyderco was my choice for a birthday gift to a family member. It is a very useful product that can be used to sharpen not only knves but many other cutting tools as well, and it arrived quickly and in good condition. The person that I gave it to, my son, was very pleased, and I feel that I made an excellent choice!
This is without a doubt the best knife sharpener I have ever owned. The rest of my many whetstones, clamp on sharpeners, etc. are now history at my house. The only down side is that the stones sharp edges will nick if you drop them in the sink while washing them. All in all I am very happy with this purchase. Walmart had the best price by 20 or more dollars.
