  1. The other day someone thought that me saying that I don’t use the Work Sharp belt sharpeners as much anymore meant that I didn’t like them anymore. That’s not it at all. They are amazing machines. But I’ve just increased my skill at hand sharpening and usually I just use them now for when I need an edge reprofiled because I don’t like what came out of the factory. Or the occasional edge polishing. If you aren’t good at hand sharpening, the Ken Onion with Blade Grinder Attachments is still the one to beat. And it’s what I use on the BIG knives (JX5, SXB, M18, Bravo Machete, etc etc). I RARELY use it on small knives and pocket knives.

    1. I like the field sharpener…I think this pocket sharpener would sell much better if they removed the diamond stone and put a leather strop instead…

    2. PREPAREDMIND101 I find hand sharpening to be quite therapeutic. In my opinion, I would rather this be the ceramic rod and strop, instead of the diamond plate.

  2. Feeling sharp and being sharp – two different things, Mike Stewart said it himself. I wouldn’t call a sharpener reliable after a few passes on just two knives and just trying one of them for half a featherstick. Be more thorough, otherwise it’s just a “buy it” review.

  3. If this has already been explained or stated, I apologize for the repeat. But I always recommend that all new diamond sharpeners be scrapped across a big dull blade at first, like an old machete or axe, just to get all that roughness off the block. In time, a well used diamond stone gives amazing results. Fine grit is all that is needed. I have an EZ-Lap in fine grit that’s about 18 years old and feels as smooth as any natural stone, but it will re-profile an edge or just as easily and gently hone an edge for simple touch ups.

  4. I could be wrong but I feel that the diamond side is for resetting an edge like if you get a chip or roll in the edge as it’s intended as a field maintenance tool it’s just to get you through till you get home and fix it on your better system. I actually really like it it’s kind of like a fallkniven DC4 but cheaper. Side note I don’t know if you read all the comments Chris but dose the rod rotate?
