    Does it at least come with different grit stone wheels? sounds like hes just grinding away on a coarse stone, which is an easy way to shorten the lifespan of your knife.

    Honestly, I know a LOT of people who don't care enough to learn how to hand sharpen. This kind of a thing is something they would do and it would help them keep their knives sharp. Just because it's not the best way to do something doesn't mean it isn't good enough for the average cook who just wants their knife to not suck.

    Plus it needs damn lot of patience in the beginning stage, no one will **** with it, as discussed before, only 1% of humans on this planet can actually sharpen with bare hands. This machine is good for the ordinary human species, hand sharpening is not for everyone.

    I think that it being a brand new knife he probably just made it blunt how bad was it when it went through the paper

    They already are. I've seen some pretty terrible stuff, including a kitchen lead taking a serrated knife to a grinding wheel. There were no serrations when he finished.

    LOL

    Seriously, every time I pass by and see someone using a kitchen knife, be it for cutting vegetables or peeling fruits on the street, I'm 100% sure their knives are blunt as hell. I really wish to ask "can I sharpen your knives?" Every time I see a knife lying around, even box-cutters, I'll instinctively pick it up and finger test for sharpness, just can't help it.

    I actually prefer an old cordless black and decker drill with one of those grinding wheel thingies. It's cheaper and I can usually pick up parts at garage sales. Now that wire brush wheel is just the thing for deburring. I can find them all over.
