I think it's a great little device. For serious sharpening I use water stones but the Edgemaker Pro is great for touchups. And I've used them to bring very dull knives up to the point where they'll shave. Highly recommended for people that want sharp knives but don't want to fuss with complicated sharpening gear.

My Edgemaker sharpens my 30 year old Sharpman's Dream serrated kitchen knife very well. It's worth buying for that ability alone.

I have one and I use it all the time with my Sanelli knives, they came with it. I love it, it sharpen my knives, Serrated edges and my scissors. Anything that sharpens my scissors is a welcome guest in my home!

I was going to ask where you got them, since you are in Canada too. All the ones I've seen online are soooo much more expensive in Canada.

Mine is a manual one, not the electric one. I have been assured that both are excellent. Mine was $14.95 at Stokes. It fits against the counter and is rather like a comb... I know that Edgemaker designed an electric one, I haven't seen one, really not interested anyway, as mine is really efficient and easy to use. By the way it doesn't scratch you little knives either, which the cheaper Henkel does.

Wow! Thanks. I would never have thought of looking at Stokes. I checked their website, and yes it really is an Edgemaker. I have a Stokes less than 2 km from my home. Gonna check them out.

They also sell Sanelli Knives and they are $199.99 right now instead of $399.99. Great knives!

But, I have a perfectly nice set of Henckels, so I'm not looking for knives.

I think you'll really like the Edgemaker Pro. For most purposes just the Yellow Handy Honer is enough. Occasionally you might need to use a coarser one but not often. It really is an innovating and effective product. Everyone I know that's tried them has liked them.
