1.It is expensive, but it’s a great tool. It does a remarkable job at sharpening kitchen knives–and they stay sharp. No more hiding the one good sharp knife (laboriously sharpened with a stone) that I need, and then my wife finds it and begins to use it and somehow dulls it. All the knives that I sharpened are still sharp! I have sharpened a few chisels, but no plane blades yet. Flattening the back of a chisel is easily done on the side of the wheel. I knew that I could change the apparent grit on the wheel from 220 to about 1000 by using the abrader block that comes with the tool, but I had not realized that I could use the honing wheel to polish the entire bevel to a fine finish. (Use the included angle setup tool on the smaller honing wheel to accomplish this step.) I think I prefer to use a fine water or diamond stone to remove the wire edge after the other sharpening steps are done. I have used the honing wheel for this purpose, as suggested by the manual, but it is a bit difficult to get the back of the chisel exactly tangential to the honing wheel at the contact point. I inadvertently put a small reverse bevel on the back of a few chisels before I realized my mistake. They would still shave, however.

2.Easy set up & east to use. For the naysayers- it’s a tool, learn how to use it with patience & open eyes & ears, read the instructions or pay attention when watching the video.
