    This is one I've not seen before. I know many of us are buying from Harbor Freight now, but this sharpener looks promising, I think. Anyone own it?

    I would love also to hear some feedback..I've been watching it for about a year..but want to hear how it works. I have the little sandpaper disks but they are about worthless. I also came across this one...

    but would really like some feedback before investing.

    Pretty expensive. For that price let's hope it works.

    All of the sharpener's on the market have one thing in common, they are made to be used often. These are not made to put a new edge on a blade, but to "keep the edge sharpened." So the key is to use them frequently before they get dull :wink: :D:D:D

    I have this!!! It is more expensive, but it has worked for me, much much better than that little blue ring thing. The thing is, its a new discipline for me to remember to do before I start slicing and dicing! :shock: So hasn't happened everytime! LOL But did definitely make a difference.

    This is a brand know in plants and industries to have quality cutting blades. I have the Grace Tru Cut sharpener that is manual and it works great. You have to sharpen a sharp blade to keep it sharp. Most try using a blade sharpener on dull blades then complain the sharpener doesn't work.

    $60 is a chunk of change, but it won't buy too many new blades. Might be worth a try.
