Glad we bought it!
That being said there is ONE MAJOR TURNOFF. To those who want to keep their knives looking pristine and shiny, this sharpener WILL cause small lateral scratches on both sides of ANY knife you put through it. My $160 10 inch chefs knife has 20-30 scratches running along the entire side of it. DO NOT FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS IT COMES WITH. If you do follow the directions and draw the knife flat through the sharpener, it will scratch the sides the worst. I found out after trial and error with my mothers worn down Henckels Classic set (I didn't want to cause more cosmetic damage to the new Wusthof's) that the knife must be drawn back so it engages the grinding wheels but the handle is kept at a steep angle well below the horizontal grinding plane. This minimizes the contact of the sides of the knives with the grinding wheels and minimizes scratching. Remember to always start near the handle and draw towards you so the tip is the last part to touch the grinding plane.
I really only use the stropping wheels to maintain the edge. Maybe once every other week I run the knives through stage two.
My mother's Henckels knives needed to be ground in stage 1, 2, and 3 and I must say the magnetic insert to catch the metal filings is ingenious. Too bad they didn't apply some felt in the areas where the knife drags through the plastic to further minimize scratches.
If your goal is to keep your pricey knives scratch free and looking brand new THIS IS NOT THE SHARPENER FOR YOU.
I understand that my knives are essentially tools for the kitchen. Tools will take a beating from time to time. I am not so concerned with the look but rather the function, and when it comes to function I have never used sharper, better knives. This sharpener barely made the 4 star rating.
