Although I love DMT products & have all of their Diamond Diafold stones & a ceramic sharpening stick, I am extremely diappointed with this product. Although a great concept, the actual product is very cheaply made & it broke when clamping my first heavy blade (Navy Seal Knife)the angle settings are not marked with numbers, so every time you use it you have refer back to the written instructions to determine which markings refer to what degree angles you are setting. Making it out of metal would be a big improvement. I would not recommend this product.

I had no problem assembling the device; nor did I have a problem
using the knife clamp. Was very straightforward.
I used a not very sharp kitchen knife and set it to a 25 degree
angle (covered in the instructions). It took more than 5 or 6 swipes,
more like 15 or 20, but using a coarse stone the knife became very sharp.

Using a fine and extra fine stone I produced an edge that shaves hair off
my arms in just a few minutes. The big advantage is that the guide arms
guarantee an even edge on both sides which is the trick to sharp edges.
If you use a stone much thicker than that shown in the instructions you have to
compensate for the difference.

If you are looking for a scary sharp edge, you can sharpen your knife at a
lower angle (10 or 15 degrees) and then use an even finer stone. After
which you should hone the edge on a piece of leather or kraft paper. I have
done so and you can really get a razor sharp edge.

The only reason that I downgraded it to 4 stars is that it is somewhat flimsy.
With care it will last a long time, but I can see that aggressive use will
eventually break the guide arms.

This Item worked great. Built better then it looked on the video. I ordered two so I can sharpen longer and heavier knives. This should teach me the correct angle very fast. No markings, but investing in a cheap plastic protractor gives me the correct angles. Watch the video and you can see how large it is and how easy it is to use. You don't need to torque down the adjusting screws with a 120 lb torque wrench. A little common sense goes a long way. When in doubt read the instructions.

This blade guide is sturdy, easy to assemble and use, and overall well worth the price. It's particularly useful for beginner knife sharpeners who want to do a lot in a short period of time.

I'm giving it only three stars because the product description is a bit misleading. This guide really only works with a DMT Aligner system that includes the Aligner base and alignment rod. It really *won't* work as a blade angle guide by itself on a regular sharpening stone. If you don't have any sharpening gear at all, I suggest you look at the complete DMT Aligner system, which includes several diamond sharpening stones. I've used diamond stones to do many other sharpening tasks, even including sharpening my ski edges! Diamond stones are easy to use, stand up to lots of punishment, and in general are easier to use for amateur sharpeners.

Good concept to help those new to sharpening but too bad the execution is just not there. Cheap material means it breaks quite easily. It's not just about how much force is used but also the angle at which you turn the guide. I would have gladly paid another $10 just to have it made in a stronger material.

This product give my knife the perfect angle when sharpening with DMT diamond sharpening stones. I've sharpened knives, kitchen knives, my combat knife, a 28 1/2 katana, and more with this product w/ DMT diamond stones and get an extremely razor sharp edge, you cam even sharpen razor blades & exacto knife blades back to their perfect sharp edge.

I have used this for four years. I wish I had better news:

Pathetic design. As you can see from the picture, the aligner has a nice large thumb-screw for tightening the clamp on the knife blade.

BUT, the thumbscrew gets in the way of the rod for small sharpening angles. This causes the stones to drag across the aligner and not touch the knife blade. I really like the material that the aligner is made from, it won't scratch blades.

Recently, I replaced the DMT aligner which came with my set with the GATCO aligner (about 12 dollars at Amazon) , and I couldn't be happier. DMT makes the best stones that I have used; but this item is poorly engineered in my opinion.

ALSO, in the picture, you can see a brass screw at the fulcrum, which screws into a brass nut on the other side. The nut on the other side pulls out and must be epoxied back into the black polymer holder.

One last point is that the aligner is designed to be used with a rod system OR on a bench-stone. GREAT idea, but poor results.

It's only fair to mention that I own SEVERAL DMT products and will continue to purchase them. This is the only DMT product I own that I would not rate as excellent. The DMT company is a class-act.

This device is O.K. It guides your knife at the right angle for sharpening. It is a little flimsy in structure and I treat it with kid gloves as I mount and sharpen the knives. I think, with time, a guy can sharpen without the device, once he gets used to the angles, etc. I'd buy one again after using this one.
