Let me guess your grandpa taught you 60 yrs ago how to use a wet stone and thats all you have ever used on a knife and anything anyone else does differently is wrong.

Thats just the basic kit, I have over double that invested with the additional stones. You get what you pay for, there's nothing that will compare to it.

I use these pull through methods but want to learn how to use a wet stone. My problem is the angle and keeping it. I use a spiderco tri-angle sharpmaker but I'm only mildly satisfied with it. I probably need to learn how to use it better.

I'm looking for an angle guide for a wet stone to help me with the muscle memory. I've seen some that clip on but I'd like the kind that do not.

Lets see some pictures of a knife sharpened by a Work Sharp. I bet where the work sharp first touches the blade it leaves a small divot! Pictures please! I have used a stone for over 60 yrs, and still do. But for a touch up on a knife or a 2 blade Eskimo, you can't beat it. Just my $.02!

The worksharp is a great tool if used properly. You can't just let it run and drop in the blade. The blade must be in the slot first. Also power must be turned off before hittiing the tip.

I'm curious too about the Worksharp Paul Onion version. I pick up used blades at shows and sales and it would be much cleaner to start the blade on the Worksharp and finish on a Lansky or similar diamond stone graduated down to a finer whet.

The Spyderco Sharpmaker is about the best I've found that doesn't require much skill. It's fairly easy to get great results. It helps to purchase the diamond and ultra fine rods but they aren't necessary.

You can get a knife shaving sharp with the Work Sharp Ken Onion very quickly, it comes with 5 belts ranging from Extra Course to Extra Fine and you can infinitely adjust the edge angle and adjust the belt speed. I can sharpen 20 knives in about 30 min and all will pop hairs.

A word of caution, don't pull the knife all the way off the belt or it will round the tip off. When the tip gets to the middle of the belt, lift straight up. Also, don't run it too fast, you'll overheat the blade, especially the tip, and loose its temper.

I have no problems at all using the worksharp on all my custom knives.

It's easy not to round off the tip. You just keep the knife LEVEL through the entire sharpening cycle. For some reason, people want to dip down the tip to the curve of the blade. That is not necessary to sharpen the blade to the tip. Just keep it level and pressure against the degree guide for the entire pull through the worksharp. It will sharpen to the tip without dipping the blade down. If you dip down at the curve it will round off the tip of the blade. They explain this clearly in the video instructions.

For those of you that think this is wrong to use on a custom knife, your kidding yourself if you think your custom knife was stone sharpened. It was sharpened on a belt very similar to the worksharp, just bigger and more expensive.
