I love how fast the speedy sharp sharpens my pruners, hori-hori, and other gardening tools. After using a file to sharpen, which is harder to do and takes a couple minutes, using the Speedy Sharp was a revelation - just a few strokes put a fresh edge on my blade and kept me pruning away happily with cleaner cuts and less effort.

My favorite thing is that the Speedy Sharp fits in my pocket, so for marathon days of pruning, I can sharpen every hour or so and keep a good edge on my pruning shears and lopper. It works on everything, scissors, knives, garden tools.

And it's made of some material that is supposedly so strong that only a diamond can scratch it. They have a lifetime guarantee, so if you do manage to nick it with your giant diamond ring (yeah, like that's gonna happen), you'll be all set to pick up a freshie from the company.

Seriously - this is an awesome tool. Every gardener should have one.

This is a _must have_ for the outdoorsman or survivalist type. It's rock-simple with no moving parts. Those in the metalworking industry will immediately recognize this as a disposable carbide lathe bit, albeit a little thinner. The uses I've found so far:
1. Sharpening - yes indeed. It does the trick, and fast. It works best on longer straighter blades (lawnmower blades, machetes, etc), won't sharpen serrated blades. No biggie, tho. Will shave mild steel so effectively it actually makes a curl ("swarf") of steel, you're actually whittling the steel. WARNING-steel swarf is very flammable. I noticed that harder steels and cast iron make more of a fine powder residue. Will also sharpen shovels for ease of use in the garden. It's best for touching up edges, but not for a fine, keen edge or initial sharpening. For razor-sharp edges, angular control is essential. The DMT sharpening kit worked far better for this purpose. Also, as in machining-watch out for "chattering". This is mechanical oscillations during material removal. The speedy sharp does this as other industrial carbide bits, resulting in an irregular, bumpy edge. When sharpening, I frequently change the horizontal axis (not the edge angle) to reduce this. For best results, correct it early. It seems most frequent on stainless steels, least frequent on mild steel.
2. Firestarting - more like fire *hazard*. The recent proliferation of ferrocerium ("mischmetal") based firesteels illustrates the limiting factor -- a good scraping surface. Knives are okay, but a finer edge won't be sharp very long. Also, the approach angle is important. The speedy sharp is the missing link -- it turns firestarting efforts into fire-inevitability.

I sharpen knives as a part-time job, and as a professional sharpener, I will say that all carbide sharpeners do is jack up your blade. They are horrible for your knife. They remove way too much metal by literally shearing metal from the edge of your knife instead of gently grinding it away as a sharpening stone would, leaving you with a ragged edge that doesn't cut worth a damn, and is going to get dull again extremely quickly. I would avoid any tungsten carbide sharpener at all costs! A quick look at any of the current books on sharpening will usually yield a comparison of pictures between the ragged edge left by these carbide sharpeners as viewed under a microscope, and a properly polished edge sharpened with a stone.

Some books I can recall that show these pictures are:

Sharpening Made Easy: A Primer on Sharpening Knives and Other Edged Tools

and

Knife Sharpening Made Easy

I also believe pictures are available on DMT's website as well. DMTSHARP(dot)com

Wow, sharpens quick or hones just as quickly. Lightweight, takes up little space and really works well. If you get a tad too aggressive with your sharpening it will take off more steel quicker than you might think, go easy. I bought several for gifts and all my knife carrying friends are ecstatic.

This thing works exactly as advertised - it quickly and easily sharpens and/or hones any steel blade you can throw at it.

I tested it only over a dozen different blades and it had no problem cleaning up their edges. I even used it to put a scary-sharp edge on a Cold Steel machete that came almost as dull as a steel knife blank (after I gave it a basic grind with a Dremel tool).

It's fairly simple to use, but I feel that the instructions could be a little more detailed in order to prevent over-sharpening and the like.

Also, one totally minor nitpick is that this thing is clearly cheaply mass-produced somewhere overseas and isn't of the highest build quality. Since it's carbide, the actual business end should last forever, but the rest of it ain't super high-quality. Again, that's just a totally minor comment as the thing wonderfully performs its intended function...

This is a great sharpener. I used it on some duck bill tin snips that needed sharpening and it sharpened them as slick and fast as possible. I am very pleased to have such a handy little sharpener like this, and it sharpens metal very easily with its carbide tip. Excellent product and will find so many uses for it. I hear it makes a good fire starting tool for scraping magnesium rods and striking flint also.
