This 20X Loupe is a must have when you want to see your sharpening work. I've tried multiple loupes since I started sharpening and this 20X Jewelers Loupe is my favorite. It has a really nice and clear magnifying glass as well as a good LED light to make viewing your edges easy. It comes with an extra battery and a small case for storage. This item belongs in every sharpeners tool box. Dr. Matt Recommended!

4  A very nice tool, April 22, 2017
Posted By: Pierre-Andre - verified customer

I really love this tool, it is small and easy to carry. The lens also makes it very big to be able to see all the details on a knives or mostly after sharpening this one. The reason why I give a 4/5 instead of 5/5 is because I find it annoying that the button to start the light is too small to find without looking right at it. Problem is that the leds are right next to this button so the moment you turn it on, you get flashed in the face and this thing is VERY bright.

But, overall it is a very nice product and I recommend it for the ones who wants to have a better look onto their work.

I got this loupe with my sharpening stone set. I really wasn't expecting much. As an artist I have a drawer full of loupes...and none come even close to this one. Super clear lens. The led's are bright and well aimed. I use this for everything from checking my knife edges to my fine art prints and photographs. Perfect for checking my hifi turntable stylus too! An easy recommendation.

Nice to see the continuity of the burr up close when wet hands can sometimes deceive us. Helps me minimize the size of the burr created therein extending the life of the knife's material. Helpful and interesting but obviously not necessary.

This was recommended by Mark/forum and it works well and feels sturdy. However, 20x is just enough magnification to let you see your edge, I would strongly recommend getting a higher magnification. You can see big picture problems and grind differences but definitely not subtleties.

I like this loupe for judging knife edges better than my 20x Belomo (which has better optics but really lacks built in illumination making it very hard to use on edges). But I like it less than the 60x Mini microscope that Mark sold me. My main concern with the 20x loupe is a very bright LED that leaves me partially blinded after use.

Great loupe! Very bright light. You can really see your knife edge! Every knife sharpener should own one.

this is a great product. It has a lot of uses other than for sharpening. I also use it for things like seeing slivers to remove them, inspecting 0-rings for cracks, as well as looking at knife edges. This has been the best tool I have to provide feedback so that I can improve my sharpening ability.

This little guy has improved my sharpening skills incredibly.

Examine the edge, notice rough spots... and concentrate on those areas. Repeat as needed - as simple as that.

Bargain price for how much it'll improve your ability to develop a better, sharper edge.

Good product. Allows you to view the edge closer to see what kind of work you are doing.

This is a nice loupe that does the job. I have a 10x loupe without light, and it does not work well on knives. Illumunation in a loupe is DEFINITELY a must to examine knives' edges. I gave 4 stars, becuase it is my first illunated loupe, I don't know any better for comparison. But, it does the job, and at that price, it is a very good buy.

Everyone needs one of these. You'll know how your edge looks with this. 20X is great, can't see a need for more.

This loupe is my favorite as well. Not only does it have a great clear picture under 20X magnification, the LED light really enhances the picture. It's great for looking at your straight razor edges. This loupe is great!
