Woohoo!

I have never enjoyed sharpening knives but with this I find an excuse to do so.
It makes it easy and hair popping sharp in minimal time
Agreed! People can say what they want, but ease of use is sometimes more important.

Het julle manne al na die Tormek slypers gekyk.
Hulle kos n fortuin, maar lyk na terapie om mee te werk.

Anybody tried sharpening a knife on the bottom of a coffee cup/plate/mug?  I believe that the exposed ceramic ridge will sharpen a blade.

On ceramic it certainly does work, you just need to keep your angle consistent.

I've read that the exposed edge of a wound-down car window will also work.

I pay for the same work sharp model $55, just under R800
Why is it R400 more in SA…
But it makes sharpening knives only a pleasure

Tom, we pay more for everything here, a $50 knife here is R1k + on average just for example.

Excuse my ignorance, the Work sharp  looks like a larney Lansky?

In my honest and humble opinion a bit more than that altho the principle of honing is the same
I own both and my Lansky will probably become a gift to a friend since I am in a process of decluttering my life a bit

The worksharp does not have that  wonky steel rods that tend to bend when you remove them from the container nor the set up or the (in my opinion) annoying slots where the rod needs to have preside downward pressure to get the correct angle/edge

Yes Lansky also have diamond hones but stil on the same system.
The worksharp is precise, it stands on its own without any extra’s and to turn the knife around is simple hassle free.

I have the Lansky and a Warthog. Can't remember when last I used the Lansky as the Warthog is so easy to use.

Just to give you an example of the ease of use and how effective the Worksharp Precision Adjust is:
Knife: Civivi Elementum
Blade: D2
Weekend Tasks: Dismembering 40 boxes, some rope cutting, food prep and braai knife, use as lunch and dinner knife on ceramic plates and made 4 medium sized feather sticks.
Touch ups in between: None
Edge condition: less than a butter knife , no chips

10 min on the Worksharp through 320g, 600g and then the ceramic hone all at the indicated @20⁰ and the knife is silly sharp again.

My KME is used to fully restore a knifes edge but the Worksharp comes close and is quick and simple to use

I have a Lansky and a Worksharp and for me, both have their own uses. The Worksharp shines on my bigger blades like my Zero Tolerance and my Sheepdog..
 The Lansky is better suited for small blades like my Swiss Army Knife.
 The stones on the Worksharp are just something else though and I have to be careful I don't remove too much material. I have also used the Worksharp stones on the Lansky clamp. I just slide the bottom O-ring up securing the stones against the ball joint and slip the bottom end of the rod through the holes in the Lansky clamp..

Agree

Worksharp will release more option on diamond stones this month which will give you even more honing options
Looking fw to that

It's handy, I just need to get this for it https://www.worksharptools.com/shop/sharpeners/manual/precision-adjust-knife-sharpener-upgrade-kit/ but is not availible in SA yet(I think) and an angle cube as my phone is too big to use the protractor on it.

If you still have a Lansky kit, keep it but do get the Worksharp...You'll see what I mean about the clamp.
