Product sharpens knives well. Like others my product came with unfinished wood which will allow any excess oil or any other moisture sources to penetrate the wood. The picture is false advertising and the manufacture should be forced to change it and to reflect the true condition of the product.

I don't know if this is a big deal to anyone else, but I was disappointed that my stone looked different. Instead of a nice cherry or walnut color with a gold logo and pretty looking stones, mine had a pine wood light colored base with a black logo and uniform color (boring looking) stones. I know it seems silly, but this was a gift for my husband and I paid a little extra for this one because I thought it looked nicer and it was a gift, so I wanted it to look pretty.

Functionally, it's fine. I don't think that you can mess that part up, since it has a fairly basic purpose. And he seems happy with it. But just be aware, that if you're ordering this one because you think that it looks pretty, you might be disappointed.

I bought this because I wanted to learn to sharpen on a flat stone rather than with a auto-sharpener. Upon opening it I was pleased to see it was made in America, I try to avoid products made in China so this was a serious plus for me. The fit and overall construction is very high. The stones were flat and level and the wood is of reasonable quality not overly soft or cheap feeling. I have been able to bring back horribly beat up blades to shaving sharp using this sharpener. I was also able to sharpen a old ax that was in need of serious love to the point where it was cutting through paper like a razor blade something it had not been able to do new so I was impressed. My only complaint was that it needs some rubber on the bottom as it could not grip my table, making it a little difficult while using a lot of pressure on the coarse stone.

Over all I am very happy and would encourage you to buy this over similar products based on my personal satisfaction with this sharpener.

The Arkansas Tri-Hone Sharpening System, 3 stones is an excellent free-style hand sharpening system. I would recommend it highly to anyone who wants their kitchen cutlery to be as sharp as required. The three stones progressively take you from coarse to medium to fine. They do get your knives razor sharp. I could easily slice through a sheet of paper without sawing the knife back and forth. The only draw-back is the size of the stones. They are six inches long and not very wide, so it takes a little practice to sharpen a large chef's knife on the stones. But patience and holding the knife at the same angle (22 degrees is recommended) at each stroke pays off with a really sharp knife that is a joy to use. Excellent value for the price.

I really like the way this system works. No, the wood is unfinished and oil will eventually change color or stain it. Who cares? It is not furniture, it is a knife sharpening tool. It is not prominently displayed on the mantle. It is however a pretty stable system and longer than what I have been using for the last 30 years. Would highly recommend. I read another review that said the stone loosened up. If I see a stone get loose, I will chip it off and glue it back down with T-88 and it will never come off again. ...but that hasn't happened yet.

I bought this to sharpen my scissors and knives but found that the finest finish stone ( white ) also does a good job of sharpening my expensive razors for a few extra shaves. There are probably even finer stones offered by the seller or others that may do even a better job for that purpose

This is a great stone. By going thru all 3 steps, my knives all went from dull and neglected to being able to shave the hair off my arms. Highly recommended.

I used this for the first time today and these are great stones. My knife was not overly dull, but it didn't take more than a few strokes and it was sharp enough to shave the hair off my arm with no effort.I am very impressed with it. I have used Gatco sharpeners for a while now and the reason I keep buying Gatco is the quality is great.
