Had this one for a few years. It ate battery like Vicodin. The LED would feel dim a week after installing new batteries with limited use. This battery compartment get stuck and the included key is too thin, so it bent when I tried to use it to open the battery compartment.

  Checking the edge, October 8, 2020
Posted By: Harry Church - verified customer

I bought this little loupe to check check the edge on my straight razors after sharpening. The light on it helps immensely. A little hard to attain focus until you figure out the correct distance, but definitely worthwhile.

This is a great way to take your sharpening up a notch. Check your blade edge before, during and after. Find any areas that need special attention. And dial in your polishing.

Surprisingly good for the price, off-center distortion is low which is not true of most budget loupes. I doubt that it's really 30x though, 12-15x seems more like it, but plenty enough to see what you need to see. I'd buy another without hesitation, it's a bargain.

  Very Solid Magnification, October 26, 2017
Posted By: SM - verified customer

Although it is no substitute for an actual microscope, I'm still happy with this acquisition because it fills a need for pocket-sized, ultraportable viewing.I haven't yet analyzed large-sized burrs, but it's shown me some of the bigger microburr whiskers while uncomfortably close. Uncomfortable because my eyeball or face has to be adjacent, an inch or less away, from the sharp edges to get the best possible view with the LED's blinding and tiring blue-light bouncing off the grind textures. I could pair it with the phone camera, but that sort of setup isn't conducive for quick and easy checks; you also don't want to be staring at anything for too long and too close with the LED source switched on.Mild edge-warping aside, the unit's magnification power is definitely better than my trusted Belomo (so the x30 power designation seems about right), but the overall durability of this type of thing is no comparison. Unlike the impressive, heavy-duty Belomo construction, this is Made in China in all ways, so you can't attach it to a daily-use keychain and expect it to remain functioning, or even there, shortly after, i.e., so not designed for field work. The LED light flickers and dims on occasion depending on how you grip the unit, but when you find a sweet spot, it works very well.So far, I've even utilized it in quick electronics' repair, so no buyer's remorse in the least, and a decent additional item to toss into any order, too, if it ever breaks.

Nice quality and features for the price. Excellent magnification allows to see fine knife burr details. LED is very bright to assist viewing. Nice case for storage was included.

Gives a great close up of the blade. There somewhat of a learning curve getting the distance and light on the correct spot but you do get a good look at how well you did sharpening the blade.

This is a well made, extremely useful aid in knife sharpening. If you care about getting the best possible edge on your knife, you need this diagnostic tool. A great value as well!

For judging edges I like the 60x Mini Microscope (which Mark sold me and might be the same as the 45x) more than my 20x Belomo or my 20x illuminated loupe. Tiny, easy to use, lights not too bright, good field of view.

  Product Review, August 10, 2012
Posted By: Rob Babcock - verified customer

Man, if I could give this product 10 stars I would! No lie, I have 15 of them. Mine were purchased from Amazon years before Mark got them but I'm so glad he did! Now I have another source of them. I literally don't know how I'd sharpen without this scope. The true magnification is probably 30-ish; is seems like manufacturers of cheap scopes like t his just pull a number out of the air. But the optics are astonishingly clear, especially for the price. The real killer aspect of this is the LED light shining right where you need the it. Brilliant! You can easily see a burr and gauge the amount of polish you have. Do you use the Sharpie trick? This will allow you to see where you're hitting with a level of precision that will increase your diagnostic power exponentially.The downsides? It's kinda cheap feeling. I'd gladly pay $50 for an identical version built like a SureFire or Streamlight.As an FYI, I also keep one of these in my work knife case and at least one in every first aid kit. They're amazing for digging out spinters or seeing debris in someones' eye.Seriously, if you don't have one of these, YOU NEED ONE! This will revolutionize the way you think about your edges.

Great little product for the price. Really lets you get right in there and inspect your knife edge and assess the situation. People at work call me a nut for using a microscope on my knife, but none of theirs can slice through paper like tofu.
