Good knife sharpener.

Verified purchase

I am using this device to sharpen all my knifes from pocket to kitchen. Depending on how dull my knife is I run it through the carbide side 10 or 20 rimes. Then I run it through the ceramic side about the same amount of times. t fits in my pocket so when I don't have much else to do I sharpen whatever knifes I can find.

Class act field sharpener for your relished knives

Best Pocket Carry. gentle use for touch up on your good knives. we used the serrated point for two of our spendy 5 star henkle bread and veg knives. Smiths PP1 made them almost razor sharp with light touch and very few passes. btw, the fine touch up rods are best we have ever used. PP1 is not best for large poorly made cheap knives. use a common stone for those. Walmart sells several inexpensive stones for coarse restoring apex work. we attached knotted loop of paracord to lanyard hole for convenience.

Easy to carry and sharpens well

Verified purchase

This can be carried where ever is convenient. Is small enough and sharpens very well. I have several of these in various places. I purchased a knife, as a gift for trucking. This will come in handy.

Does great on all knives. Serrated edges just a good. Small enough to go in my pocket when I camp with the Scouts. Great tool to have. This is my second one.

I was a bit skeptical...bought one and love it!

I'm sort of an old-school kinda guy when it comes to sharpening/straightening knives. I used to be a firm believer that steels and wet-stones were the best method for knife-care. I slowly started to cross-over to newer technologies and broke down and purchased a 4" pocket-size round/rod diamond-hone sharpener about 25 years ago, and I really liked that I could take it with me any where because of it's compact size, but this Smith's Pocket Pal is really sweet. I've sharpened several larger fixed-blade hunting knives and 4 lock-backs (2 being partial-serrated blades) with it so far. If the edge of a fine blade is damaged at all, I draw through the carbide until it slides through easily and smoothly, then go for the ceramic...razor-sharp in 30-60 seconds vs 3-4 minutes with a diamond hone. The tapered diamond hone works nicely on my serrated blades as well. I bought this just a few weeks ago in-store, and it has already replaced my old diamond-hone sharpener (which still works quite well) for daily carry. The tapered diamond hone has a detent to help hold it in the open and closed positions, though it doesn't actually lock in place. The case is plastic, but should stand up to some minor abuse. The sharpeners are replaceable by removing a small Phillips screw on the side panel/cover...I will need to find a source for them, though I think they will last quite some time. One word of caution is with hollow-ground knife blade edges...you may find it difficult to keep an edge very long using this sharpening system, as the sharpener is not a tapered-V shape, like the knife edge would be. No complaints here...nice compact and light-weight sharpener for use on most any knife.

Use as directed.

Obviously you can't expect this to be the best product in the world, as the price would reflect. However, failing to follow the directions may be the culprit for the poor reviews. If you use the Carbide side FIRST to SET the edge, prior to using the Ceramic side to FINISH the blade. I think it will provide satisfactory results. I've restored virtually every blade in my home to an excellent condition. Time will only tell if my results are legit. So far, so good.

Great, versatile product.

This is a great little product. It's small enough to fit in a pocket, but will sharpen straight as well as serrated blades. For the price, it can't be beat.

Nice light weight sharpener. What I love is the small rod can be used to touch up serrated blades.
