Took a bit of getting used to but eventually got the hang of it. Very good tool. Cheap plastic but then it's very light weight and easy to adjust when needed. Fits nicely in pockets or belt pouch. Added touch with a leather is the cherry on top. We need more like this in the UK.

We have used the stone sharpeners and this was a new one for us. It sharpens everything to just like new. It is easy to use too. Worth every penny.

Either I cannot perform a simple task like drawing a knife blade thru a gap in a tool, even after watching the video a dozen times, OR this does not work as advertised. Very disappointed.

I have previously used a small sharpener from Henkel along with a sharpening steel, and it took many, many swipes compared with just a few on this sharpening tool. I love it and would recommend to anyone.

Received quickly. Tried it on an old butcher knife I use in the garden. Worked just as advertised. Then used it on a axe that my son left outside after using. Again worked well. I am happy with the sharpener.

I've used other sharpeners that have twin carbide blades, set at an angle that hones carbon steel blades to the proper cutting angle, resulting is a sharpened edge. That's what caused me to purchase this item. Overall it's a decent knife & blade sharpener provided the knife edge is at the angle that allows this style sharpener to operate effectively. I don't feel that this is the only sharpener I could get by with, but as one of many sharpening devices it's quite a valuable addition to my sharpening tools. Well worth the price but it's a bit smaller when you hold it than I thought it would be, not a complaint simply stating this so you know better what to expect.

I must say, the other reviewers are right. Sharpens everything I have very quickly and easily. Kitchen knives, serrated knives, all my garden clippers and shears. I'm really liking it. USA made tool. Really recommend.

An excellent product; this sharpener does exactly what it says. I've sharpened all my knives and several pairs of scissors. They're all sharper now than when they were new. Very easy to use making it a great addition to any kitchen. Would make a great gift, too. Now, I think I'll go out and try it on the lawn-mower blade.

I purchased the SelecTool sharpener from Lehman's. WOW, was I surprised. It is great! Even I can sharpen shears and knives. I have not had sharp shears in years. Now I do. It is easy to use even for an old lady like me. If I had to choose between my husband and the SelecTool sharpener, well, I had best not go there!

Amazing product. Does exactly what a knife sharpener is supposed to do. NO MORE will I waste my time and frustration on stones and sticks that don't deliver what I'm looking for. Its pretty amazing how powerful it is, and yet works so easily. I sharpen each side of my knives SEPARATELY - not both at once, like so many pull-through tools do. I get an amazingly sharp edge in just a few strokes, and can quickly clean and deburr the edge with the little hone on the side. Great! But my scissors also sharpen just as easily. I pull it through the little slot and out they come, clean and sharp. (Same process for my hedge clippers.) Did you know it can sharpen a SERRATED knife? Yep. No problem at all. A few strokes on the side guide and my little teethy knives are good to go. Don't have time to explain how tools like my axe, hatchet, hoe, and machete sharpen up. Same process, only use just the one sharpening side, (tools normally have just one edge.) Did you say a REEL LAWN MOWER? Yep, sharpens it too, without taking the blades apart. Rotary mower blades, too. Leave it in, tip it over, sharpen both tips. And its USA made, too. If it breaks, they'll send me a new one. Nice! Love this product. Hope Lehman's sells a million. You really gotta try it to believe it.

Bought this sharpener and I have to say it does what it says it does. I have steak knives that are serrated but there's only one side to it. You can't sharpen both sides, that where this tool comes in handy because you can sharpen just one side of the knife with this too. My steak knifes are sharp again and so are all my other knifes too. Works great but you have to follow instructions carefully.

Wow. What an amazing tool. I had no idea sharpening a knife could be this fast - and fun! I haven't gotten so many knives sharp this quickly . . . ever. (I don't have the knack with a stone.) Has a Lifetime Warranty, so I can send it back if it ever breaks. I can sharpen my lawn mower blade IN THE MOWER. I can cut glass and tile. I can even sharpen those pesky scissors and shears that are forever getting dull. I really, really, (really) like this tool. Highly recommended at this excellent price.

Awesome tool. I bought mine at a Gun & Knife show for much more than listed in Lehman's. After buying our 1st I came home and spent 2 hours sharpening everything w/ a blade! It worked as demonstrated and beyond. Now I'm buying them from Lehman's for inclusion in our BOBs and as a gift to family and friends.

Looks good, but mine broke the first time I used it. Probably an exception.

An outstanding, easy to use, pretty much goof proof sharpener. Quickly dressed up the edge on camping hatchet; sharpened mower blade with no problem at all. Shaving sharp edge on fine heirloom Buck hunting knife. Instructions that included are easy to read and understand. This tool has an honored place in my tool belt. Then one day it wasn't there, snooped around a little, found it in wife's sewing-craft room. How it got there, was wise enough not to ask. She remarked at how incredably sharp her sissors had become. Next time the sharpener wandered off, found it on a shelf in the shed; thats where all the gardening and lawn tools call home. Hoe, shovel, shears, and prunner all had a nice shiney new edge on them. I highly recommend the Select Tool Master Sharpener.
