This angle guide clips on to the spine of any knife. The guide rests against the surface of the whetstone while sharpening, ensuring that a constant optimum angle is maintained during the process. The portion of the guide that rests against the stone is a narrow-diameter ceramic rod, ensuring that no damage or premature wear is done to the stone.

Sharpening straight-edged knives like santoku and usuba/nikiri is very easy. With curved blades, adjust the guide angle to keep it parallel to the edge, as shown in the pic. Tips can be tricky because the guide will tend to bottom out and the blade will float above the stone. Pull the guide back, off the spine, and you will be able to get the tip onto the stone and sharpen it. This is one aspect that makes it a real incentive to learn how to sharpen freehand without a guide. It goes so much quicker than having to keep repositioning a guide and it's so much easier to achieve critical sharpening at the tip. Plus, the OCD in me likes the idea of one continuous sharpening motion across the entire edge than constant stopping and starting. But of course this is a skill that takes a good deal of patience and personal investment and it's nice to have one of these around to build your confidence.
On the positive side the ceramic contacts keep your stone more even.
cleavers and high angle meat and veg cutting knifes
not a good product for carving.
It's worthwhile having one if you will be doing this on a regular basis.
