This sharpener is phenomenal. I was a die-hard SharpMaker user until I heard about this on the USN. After considering the Wicked Edge or the Edge Pro, I decided to go with the Wicked Edge and I am happy I did. It is extremely simple to use and it's much faster and more precise than anything else I've used to date. My knives are sharper than they have ever been and that's in half the time that it usually takes. The only reason I am giving this four stars instead of five is that the thumb screws seem to loosen sometimes. That is just as much user error as anything else because I need to be checking the angle constantly, but I sometimes forget to and I will look down and see that the sharpening angle is about ten degrees different than what I started with.
Overall, the best sharpening system out there. Really, nothing beats it.
