Note: It's important to understand the limitations of a sharpening tool such as this. I think that if one is expecting a "razor edge" then it all depends on how thick and how sharp the edge was on the tool *to begin with*, ie, as shipped from the factory. For instance, pruners could be re-honed to a sharp edge, but a garden hoe or shovel - which may be 1/8" thick steel and never started out "razor sharp" - would take a long time for this tool to whittle it down to a fine edge.
PROS: Easy to use, cheap, effective. Unlike a bench grinder, this tool does not remove a lot of metal, which is probably the reason that both blades were almost perfectly balanced after sharpening. Also, the blades should last longer, since so little metal is actually being removed.
CONS: May not be robust enough to sharpen an extremely dull blade or one with significant denting or pitting.
UPDATE - ONE YEAR LATER: In general, the "cons" (above) turned out to be true, and I have found that extended heavy use of this item takes a toll. I still like it, but in sharpening heavier items, e.g., scythes, hatchets, it is possible to apply too much pressure, and after awhile the two plastic handle halves will start to separate (can be fixed, by tightening the screws in the handle). Also, after heavy use both sharpening edges appear to be the same size-- remember, the bigger of the two sharpening edges is supposed to face the beveled edge of what you are sharpening.
If you're going to routinely sharpen lawnmower blades, axes, hatchets, and scythes, you might want to get something more robust. But for light work, and occasional heavy use, this item is recommended.
But to keep it well dressed, this is perfect. Works well, fast and easy to carry to the field/garden in your pocket. Keeping your shovel good and sharp to chop out roots is the greatest!
I highly recommend this gadget to gardeners who prefer traditional tools rather than power equipment.
GardenSharp is also a very safe product, and the concealed blades and finger guard make it difficult to hurt oneself, even for the most accident-prone.
This tool is also a very good value. For just under $8 you can get a tool that sharpens just about any garden tool, from loppers and trimmers to mower blades to shovels and hoes.
I highly recommend this product.
