A Good System

Pros:
Cons:
Think this is my fourth or fifth sharpening system. The other's I've tried all work too, but there is just something about using a wet stone that is cool. One thing I noticed on mine is that after a few times of washing it off with soap and water after I used it, the next time I did you had to use a lot less honing oil then before the stones get seasoned up a bit. This could be the only sharpening system you would need if you happened to get it first instead of near the end of your collection.

Amazingly good for the money

Pros:
  • Price is GREAT!
  • The quality of the system is really good
Cons:
  • Synthetic stone is not flat at the edge
I had a friend sharpen my chisels on his $500 sharpening grinder. It burnt the corners and the edge did not last. I used the 6" tri-hone to resharpen them last night and they are RAZOR sharp and the edge is smooth and tough. My only recommendation is that you buy extra sharpening fluid at the same time as it goes pretty fast on the new stones, but once they are loaded up it goes much more slowly.

Awesome Sharpening System!

This was just what i was looking for! I like using 600 and 1,000 grit stones and this has both! I used it for my new Benchmade Griptilian and it put a shaving sharp edge on in just a few minutes! Im very happy with this system!

Great Product

The other day while we were pulling up carpet in the house for new floors, my wife grabbed one of my fine wood chisels and used it to pry and cut carpet nailing strips from our concrete slab floors. Needles to say the fine edge was destroyed with bad nicks along the edge. I do not have a bench grinder and my old-school sharpening stones were not effective at grinding a new edge, considering the damage. I bought the Tri-6 product and am really pleased. With a little patience I was able to quickly restore an even edge with the coarse stone. The honing solution that came with the kit was very effective. Then I finished the edge with the medium and the fine stone, bringing it to a smooth polished sharp edge. I am now able to shave across wood grain resulting in shavings smaller than angel hair with minimal effort. The little angle wedge that comes with the kit is of little use, but I found that the stable base that holds the stones makes it easy to keep the tools at the right angle with a little practice. I have since gone on-line and ordered two bottles of the honing solution- it is so effective and easier to use than water or oil.

Had This For Over 10 Years

I originally bought this at lowes when I was 10 years old I always never got any sharp edges out of it so I automatically assumed it was crap. Through the years or acquiring and owning knives I collected a whole host of sharpeners like their precision guide sharpening system and learned how to sharpen knives proficiently through that and learned the fundamentals of getting a burr and removing it and polishing it and stropping it. I am now 21 years old I have the Wicked edge pro pack 2 which was 795$, The Edge Pro Apex 4 which was 290$, The worksharp ken onion edition with blade grinder that's 260$, And a whole host of Japanese water stones. At the end I come back to this it's fast it's very very good and it's affordable learn how to sharpen knives and you can get razor edges with this system. Another thing when you buy this you support the fundamentals of supporting the American economy.
