Block knife sharpener
#1




I think it would have better results if it had been finished with stropping.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention Sharpco. Yes, it would seem a little stropping would have likely gone a long way toward further improvement in the edge. We don't know this gentleman, but it's clear that he is selling sharpeners and not sharpeners and strops. Regardless of how you may feel about the edge produced, how could there be a more effective, simple, and straight forward way to get his message across?

You're right EOU. 

But he often uses leather strop. Check this video.

So I think it would be better if the edge testing had been carried out once more. After sharpening, and after stropping. 

Anyway, that sharpener doesn't seem bad to use in an emergency Smile
