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

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.

Great loupe! Very bright light. You can really see your knife edge! Every knife sharpener should own one.
This Loupe is my first one and i like it. only wish the on/off switch where on top and not under.
love being able to get a close up view of my edge - great buy!
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.
