    I used a Lansky for years, and still do but it's sometimes hard on large bladed knives. I've been use a Spyderco Sharmaker for the past few months with good (for me) results.

    I don't think you can get the steel hot enough with the Worksharp to ruin the temper, A grinder is another matter.

    I just sharpened an 18” blade machete with one. You just have to move the blade a lot. It took me about 75 minutes to get to a razor edge. It will cut down a 3” tree with one or two whacks.

    I've had a Work Sharp for a couple of months. I bought mine used on flea bay for under $50 and I'm liking it pretty well. i started with some of the redheads crappy old kitchen knives and then worked up to the better stuff. You do have to watch what you're doing or you will take the point off the blade pretty quickly, but it does get a knife really sharp.

    Believe you've made an excellent choice.

    I'm kind of a knife nut and have fooled with many different products over the years. Although I never tried this one, my "go to sharpener" is now the Darex hand held Field Sharpener made by the same company.

    I've got some ceramic rods that fit into a block of wood, at 15 degree angles each, made by Smith's. I bought two....one coarse, one fine. You sort of run the blade straight down these, while drawing the knife towards you. You alternate from side to side. They work pretty good ....once you get the hang of it! I got the others, that I mentioned before, on the first page, mainly for 'touch ups' in the field. I keep it in my Knapsack, along with emergency stuff, when I go for my day hikes. I seem to have varying luck with it though. I try to keep the blade straight when I pull it through......but sometimes I don't. Sometimes things don't work like they're supposed to! Bob

    Not cheap at $89. But it flat works, and deserves the 5 star reviews.

    What I failed to mention in my original comment is Darex makes the worksharp and they also make twist drill grinders. I have one of the professional models. Not cheap (500 bucks) but works well for 90% of the HSS twist drills I need to resharpen. The rest I sharpen offhand. All Darex products are good American made tools.

    I saw a fascinating and cheap method to sharprn using a bench grinder on youtube.

    The guy repurposed a bench grinder. Cut a thick piece of plywood in a circle, with hole for grinder shaft.

    Put it on grinder, and used a lathe gouge to true it up so no inbalance. He turned the grinder away from himself, so his knife blade did not cut into the wood. A metal polishing compound was applied to the outer edge of the plywood. It produced a rapid high gloss polished edge on a knife blade which was literally razor sharp. Cut paper with multiple slow slashes.

    He claimed it removed very little metal. Little pressure was applied.
