by fromdestroys your knife The carbide wedge will turn your edge into splinters. Don't buy this unless you think it's a perfect fit for your B.O.B. because you won't be able to use a sharpening stone because of some injury in the wild. The carbide wedge will eat your knifes edge. Just forget wedge type sharpeners all together.

by fromDoes What it Says! I got this for my camping knives and EDC knife. Puts a nice sharp edge on and having the diamond rod is nice for the serrated edges. Easy to clean, as I use an old toothbrush to get in and around the stones. I have not sharpened gut hooks, but believe it would do a good job with those as well. One thing I recommend, check the screw that holds the stones in once in a while. I have not had it come loose, but it is a screw, so there is always that chance. Overall, this a nice affordable and small sharpener you can carry pretty easily.

by fromI'm impressed You definitely get your money's worth with this product. I was impressed how easy this item is to use and how lighweight it is. The only downfall is that you can sharpen larger knives.

by fromExcellent little sharpener... I have the kitchen version of this sharpener and now I always have sharp kitchen knives. I was so impressed with the edge on these knives that I bought three of these for christmas and sent one of them to my Son in Iraq. I am sure that it will work well on his Ka-Bar combat knife. Mine will be used on my pocket folder to ensure that I am always carrying a razor sharp knife. The third one is for my future son-in-law the Federal Policeman for use on his Tactical Folder. This is the sharpening system for anyone who wants a razor edge in Ten Strokes or less...

by fromSharp product This thing is soooo easy to use. No oil is required. It's easy to clean. My blades come out sharp enough to shave. Great for the trail... weighs next to nothing and is tiny too. The only thing it's missing is a built in bottle opener!
