Was this the sale price last time? I remember the thread but not the price.

Those of you that bought it... Worth it?

Good price, a similar model is $198 on amazon
You can give a person knowledge, but you can't make them think. Some people want to remain fools because the truth requires change.

same price, but $100 less than Amazon, and around $30 less than a third party seller on Amazon that popped up once i think. It was sold out last time and someone posted 100+ stock at one point.

Ok thanks for info. Decided to pick one up. Now need a knife that won't break the bank. I remember there was a knife thread around same time as back then but I was too cheap. Now I regret it. At least this sharpener will hopefully make my crappy knives decent.

I have global and henkel knives. Would this be good to sharpen them? I know, I should be sharpening them more. *facepalm*

They work fine, but for the extra $80 this thing won't disappoint. Honestly one sharpening and regular honing suffices. The one sharpening may take a while with the manual sharpeners is all. I have a 1520 and do not regret the purchase at all, despite about 40 minutes of use a year over 10 knives.

For those that have this, how do you know which stage to use? Does the tool help you understand what the difference is between 15 and 20 degree knives?

It definitely works well even on crappy knives - I got one the last time around. I have a random bunch of knives, none of which are "good" and they are all stupid sharp now.
I accidentally sliced off a small piece of finger slicing some potatoes and it was like a surgical cut.
I also jumped on the 2 pc set of Global knives at the same time, and while they haven't had to be sharpened yet, the crappy knives are almost as sharp as the factory Global edge.

If it's a standard knife, it's likely a 20° edge, if it's a Japanese style, it could be a 15° edge. I sharpened my santuko style knife through the 15° sharpener even though it might not have come from the factory that way and it is very nice.

Coming for a guy with a Lanski system and some wetstones, this thing is just a breeze to get a sharp knife. I've sharpened some Henckels, Shuns and others on here already with great results. I like doing it the manual way sometimes but other times it's just so damned easy to pull them through here and have a really nice edge in literally 2 minutes versus 30+ doing it by hand with different stones. It's not as sharp as I can get them the manual way, but the time savings are huge. No brainer price for $99 and it won't last if last time is any indication.

Thanks op. I hesitated the last time this deal was here and it went OOS. Grabbing it this time for my low to medium end knives; will still do my high end ones by whetstone but I just don't have the time to do them all proper.

Agreed. I use a combination of lansky and whetstone depending on which knife/blade I am working on but sometimes, especially on 'lower' end knives, I'd just like quick and easy, scuffing be damned.
