Knock off EdgPro.

I bought one and it's good. Pretty idiot proof...just take your time as you learn the technique.
At that price it's a no brainer. Here is Paul's finest http://www.paulsfinest.com/Edge-Pro-Ape ... Kit-2.html
Did you notice the number of penis plugs they sell?

That's for honing, not sharpening.

I 2nd Knife. I just had my chef and santoku sharpened a couple of weeks ago - great service, even though busy said too about an hour (there's a nice coffee shop across the street).

I tried Tosho last year and had to wait 3 hours with no one in the store AND they put a nick in my Santoku and didn't notice until I got home! I think Tosho appeals more to the "yuppy", so to speak.

Why would you wait 3 hours with nobody in the store? Thats a really weird thing to do. Tosho def'n isn't a "yuppy" thing, whatever that means. They both know their stuff.

If you're using inexpensive knives like my parents does - the bottom of a ceramic mug.

Mine arrived today, and I tried it out.
A very good sharpener. My CCK cleaver , always sharp, is now lethal.
It's a bargain priced sharpener. Replacement stones are hopefully available. Edge pro stones are $18, if they fit.
The instructions were hard to decipher, but it is easy to use.
Gr8dlr, what kind of grinding motion do you use? I like a circular motion but don't know what stroke is best.

If your knife has a wide heel like Henckel's this will do more harm than good because you can't run your entire blade thru these mechanical sharpeners...it will leave a void and your knife will never be the same. As well the mechanical sharpeners tend to take off more steel. If you value your knife, do not use these sharpeners.

Stick to Lansky, Edgepro, Spyderco or other similar system...if you're budget concious, buy the clone which I posted a link to. It works really well.
