  2. There is a place near where i live called Smokey Mountain Knife Works and they were demoing these so i gave them my knife to sharpen (it is made of D2 tool steel it is very tough stuff) so the rep sharpened my knife and told me to be very careful it is very sharp so i took it and it shaved the hair on my arm with ease... so i bought one that day. i love it, i sharpen every kind of knife or blade with it and I'm pretty sure it comes with a couple of belts each of 80 grit 200 & 5000 the 200 and 5000 is what to sharpen knives with and the 80 for pretty much anything you could use a belt sander for in all very nice product i highly recommend it

    Them are great from what I here, BUT have you seen these, with S/S Replacement blades, I pack these during hunting season and talked to one Fish and game officer that swears by them. I also use them in my sausage making, been thinking about carrying the Havalon for a pocket knife. 

    I have both the outdoor edge one is way easier to change. and no more sharpening at all and replacement blades are fairly cheap

    I like this one also but be careful changing the blades they are on there pretty good.

    Looks like they have a blade remover now, that is pretty cool. 

    Good luck and let us know Tropics.

    I have the Ken Onion edition and concur with all the good things already said. I sharpened a butter knife just to see if I could and it came out as sharp as could be.

    Richie both BamaFan and I have one of them they are awesome. I have tried all kinds of sharpeners and hands down these are the best I've used. I haven't found a hunting, fishing or kitchen knife it doesn't work with. I got mine off Amazon 

    Joe you NEED one after you've had it for a little while you'll be trying to figure out why you didn't buy one sooner

    I use a cheap harbor freight 1 x 30 belt sander for my knives.

    Takes no tine at all to get hair shaving sharpness.  Buy some belts from some other knife sharpeners suppliers, and you'll save wear and tear on your arthritis.  My problem too.

    .

    No belt sander can ever match hundred of dollars of fine stones, but unless you're anal about, it will produce scary sharp in a hurry.  Just ask my wife and daughter!  LOL

    But for the cheap money, it's great!

    Sharpening knives is like the smoking people.  Thousands of ways to do it, and every one of them is the "ONLY WAY"!.  <grin>
