    "I bought this to revive our kitchen knives and pocket knives. The instructions were pretty easy to follow, and this knife sharpener is just amazing to use! I felt like I as already a professional. Although you just have to be careful when using this. Tape the sides of the blade to avoid scratching them on unnecessary areas. "

    "They can actually get a blade sharp enough to curl thru tomato skin without damaging any of it. It is smooth. But the sound it makes hurts the ears. and it does remove a huge amount of material from your knives. But eitherway, it is okay to use and i have been using it for a year now. "
