Posted By: BrianTo preface this review, it is important to say that, for what this guide is, it seems to work perfectly fine. The problem is not with the item, but with the description of the item by the seller.
First, the seller does not specify that this guide is set to only one angle, and they do not specify what angle that is (it is specified on the packaging you'll get). Second, the description does not say that the manufacturer explicitly says to not use the angle guide on single bevel knives - this would have been very useful information pre-purchase, as my primary knife is single-bevel. Pretty much the only things the seller gets correct in the description is that using tape is a good idea, the ceramic bumper makes use with a stone smooth and easy, and that it is, in fact, some type of angle guide.
Again, I think the item itself is perfectly fine. If you are sharpening a double-bevel knife with a generic 22 degree angle, then this will fit your needs perfectly. However, if you have a variable collection, maybe not so much. I am extremely disappointed with the description by the seller, and felt incredibly mislead when my package arrived.
