Seriously. This sharpener will reset just about any blunted knife or axe to a finely honed edge.
It does just a good a job on a fine filleting knife as it does on my favorte chopping axe - I just have to remember to clean it before I switch uses.
Now if only they made a lawnmower that could julienne vegetables....
-Sharpens at 30 degree angle. Great for an axe, but for a knife, most people prefer a 20 or even a 10.
-Leaves black dust on the edge of cutlery
-Ok heres the big one: When sharpening, you press the axe into the sharpener and pull through the wheel. However, as you pull your axe out, it slices through the plastic in front of the wheel, there for somewhat dulling the axe. And sooner or later, you get deep cuts in the plastic, which really limits the sharpener's usefulness. Major design flaw.
Overall, the sharpener is great for axes, but for knives I tend to go back to the whetstone. And then there's the design flaw...
To address one common complaint: Yes, it cuts the plastic to either side of the "cutting" wheel. So what? The plastic will groove over time and it will stop doing that.
When I first took my Fiskar's to it, I had recently completed chopping about 1 cord of hardwood (axe, ironwood, maple). The blade had numerous dents in its edge and was fairly beat up, though still sharp overall.
After about 20 passes (1-2 minutes) back and forth through this sharpener, the edge had no dent and appeared quite sharp. Cut very well.
This may not make the best knife sharpener or be suitable for things with a bigger wedge before the edge, but it's a great sharpener for the fiskars axe!
I used a very dull hatchet that's used to split kindling wood, mainly 2x4 pieces.
It takes a lot, I mean, a lot of back and forth pulls but, you know what, my little hatchet started to develop an edge and was getting sharp.
I'll get back to it when I need to split more kindling and run the hatchet through a couple of dozen more times.
The more you run your az et al through the sharpener, the more it works for you. No need to worry about shaving off too much metal from a hatchet.
I would not use this sharpened for my kitchen knives, though. But I would use it for a cheap camping or outdoor knife that would get sharp with a crude edge.

Does a good job sharpening my axes - Fiskars x25 and x27. The build is a little flimsy. I wish they used sturdy material instead of cheap plastic.Published 1 day ago by R. Rao
We live on acreage in the NW. Lots of large cedar and fir cleanup this year. I use the Fiskar splitting, chopping and hand axes in my projects. Read morePublished 8 days ago by GWR
Better for a hand axe or hatchet... My axe heads were too big to fit in the guide, so it popped off, and had to use it that way.Published 10 days ago by William F. Rieck II
