    I use it on my larder knives and it seems fine it puts a mean edge on them.

    Yep puts an edge on fast but it just rips the steel off to make the edge. Puts an edge on an opinel but under inspection it has pulled chunks of steel from the edge. Just not the same edge as one ground on with a stone.

    It is a low pressure tool. Seems to do fine if you don't force it at all.

    that's what i find just a few light rubs. i use it on my victoryknox knives and it hasn't took any chunks out the blade. i did see a guy used it by rubbing the key ring down the knife thou

    Tears any blade to pieces and its visible, I wouldnt let one near my knives.

    Don't put it anywhere near a knife you want to use more than once. My blade tech shredded a victori Knox I was using in the lader.

    Learn to use a steel. A great steel is a ceramic +365 from ikea for 9.99.
