3 people found this review helpfulI got this in mid November from Cody Paul in a trade he and I worked out.
I had an imitation model that I got from a website prior to owning this legitimate Edge Pro version. The difference(s) between the copy-cat and the real deal are amazing.
The Shapton Glass stones that are included in this kit will sharpen anything!
I've sharpened cheaper stainless knives, and a couple of better JK's with AS and R2 steels and hardness' of up to 64/65 HRC.
The 500 stone will set an edge, but not as rapidly as a 220/320 would, but it works well.
The 1k stone leaves a great toothy, working edge on the less expensive SS knives.
The 4k is used on my JK's and it leaves an awesome edge.
I usually strop on Balsa or leather after working to the 4k stone. The result after stropping is explainable.
Anyone can use the Edge Pro!!!
The set up only takes a few minutes,
Finding an existing angle is so simple with the felt tip marker trick.
This things keeps the angle consistent, and true throughout the length of the blade.
If you aren't good at freehand sharpening - Check out the EP, and seriously consider the Essential Set - only because of the EP stones (they total $110 if bought separately).
