Cindy - I would imagine if it's made by the company that makes the knives it would be a fine sharpener. Everyone has their own preference. I resort to my stone - if not the stone then I have an electric sharpener with 3 slots, then I will use my steel with each use.

I'm sure it does a great job.

Ok, let's all take a trip to MN and have Beerco do our knives!!! LoL <picks Beerco up off the floor after he faints!!> hehe

Hey Beerco I'm down here in Madison Heights Mn. & thought I'd say hi. I use a smooth steel from this company which is located in...You guessed it Mn.!!!
http://www.razoredgesystems.com/

I bought his book 20 years ago & still think it's one of the best sharpening guides out there. My smooth steel will "fix" suprisingly bent edges, I rarely use my honing steel any more. After using the guides for years I can do a pretty good job by hand & hone now. Go Vikings!

Run away! Your better off learning to use a stone, your friends will envy you. Heck they'll bring their knives over for you to sharpen.
