    New knife sharpening tool

    Well, last time I posted Ken Onion's new kitchen knives, it turned into bashing the tools as well as the man. That was not my intention, and it is not my intention now, I am just curious what you guys think:

    It's better than a dull knife.

    Nice job getting batman to do the commentary.
    I wonder what kind of kasumi finish it leaves though...
    It looks good for utility / EDC type knives, especially recurved blades which are so popular now.

    Ken must have done something right to be able to sell his name. After owning one of his Shun chef knives; I would not use his stuff in my kitchen.

    I was looking at that a couple of months back. It is not Ken Onion's machine there is the regular version of it for sale and the Ken Onion (Eddie Bauer?) Edition.
    It only hurts til the pain goes away........

    The standard version has two fixed sharpening angles - 25 degrees for "outdoor" knives and 20 degrees for kitchen knives. The Ken Onion version appears to be adjustable from 15 to 30. It also uses 3/4" belts rather than the 1/2" belts of the original. Oh, and it's more than twice the price.

    gotta pay for that big ol' name, i guess.

    there are nice upgrades to the work sharp machine ( i meant, what ken did with the thing was pretty good, considering). and then there's more accessories and choices of other belts as well.

    It's a step up from a Chef's Choice but for the $$ it's not worth it when you consider that a 1x30 sander is a fraction of the price..... but without angle guides of course.
