I have one and it's awesome. I have used other sharpening tools but nothing that is as fast as the worksharp.

Just got one. I got the base model. It has the kitchen knife guide and the hunting knife/scissors/serrated blade guide also.

It takes longer to change out the belts than to sharpen the knife. And it is quick and easy to change out the belt. I looked at the Ken Onion. It does a lot of neat things, but none that I need. The original does everything I need.

I also have the Ken Onion, and love it. My wife loves that the kitchen knives are sharp too.
Thanks for the belt link.

I have the old model 2000, a garage sale find for $15. I use it to freehand sharpen lathe chisels, it rotates a little to fast, but it serves it purpose at a great price.

I recently got curious and bought a Ken Onion edition. It's OK and does almost as well as my stones do.

If you don't know how to sharpen a knife by hand, these ought to do nicely. I don't mean this in a negative manner but I have friends who just don't get it when it comes to sharpening. That's OK. I have to get my Grandkids to straighten out my PC.

But, you can also buy the motor and wheels like the guys at the Gun Shows use. They work great and I prefer that when I start on a blade that has been abused. The price is about the same.

Actually, I don't think that a high quality knife should be sharpened electronically unless it is at very low speed. Maybe not even then.

They will roll the bevel at the point unless you know what you are doing and are extremely careful. Buddy has one, I don't like them.

I bought my Father in law one and he loves it. I get him new belts every 3 years. I don't use one because I have benchmade knives and need the diamond sharpening tools.

Have one and love it. When skinning pigs knife dulls fast quick to sharpen. I just haven't figured how to use on the serrated part, so I use a chain saw file then use the Work Sharp.
I keep the wife happy with her knives.
