Pocket Knives are 20 degrees per side. Hunting Knives are 22 degrees per side. Tactical Knives are 22 degrees per side.
I was a little skeptical at first, but it formed perfectly. I am NOT a knife sharpening expert but I can do a really good job with this sharpener.Published 1 month ago by Kim K.
Tried this sharpened at a friend's house and had to have one. It will never replace a stone for a carbon steel blade but for the stainless steel knives we all have in our kitchens... Read morePublished 1 month ago by John R. Jenicek
Not really impresses. Its ok to keep serrated blades sharp, but the stones dont cut enought for a serverly dull blade..... diamond stones are better by a long shot.Published 1 month ago by mike
Nicely made. We use it to sharpen, and also to find angles on knives to sharpen in the powered version.Published 2 months ago by Don L. Jewett
