4.0 out of 5 stars Good but Not Great Sharpener 28 Nov 2008
By NY Packer Fan - Published on Amazon.com
I've only used it a few times but it worked well. Its made of several interleaved spring fingers about 3/8" wide with diamond grit on them. It takes a few tries to get the hang of using it. If my memory serves it creates a 35 degree edge. The gerber knifes I tried all sharpened easily and I'm guessing they already start with this angle on their edge. The chinese knives I tried took 8 or 9 swipes before the edge really started to form. Short knives, 1 1/2 " or less, don't work well with this sharpener.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for a portable sharpener 20 Feb 2009
By William Polm - Published on Amazon.com

This little sharpener is good for on the go sharpening, in that it is small, compact and light. I sketch and paint outdoors, at times in wilderness areas, so I keep it in my art bag in case I need to sharpen a knife on the spot. It would also fit in a pocket. It does a good job of putting a workable edge of a knife, provided the knife does not need grinding. By "grinding" I mean the knife is really dull and you need to start from scratch to achieve an edge that can be sharpened with a little hand-held device. You can use this sharpener on really dull knives, but I think you'll be in for a long sharpening session. But for knives in reasonable shape, with a serviceable edge on them, this sharpener will hone them to a usable sharpness and pretty quickly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not for a small knife 21 Dec 2008
By Kevin W - Published on Amazon.com

This sharpener is well made and sharpens a knife blade well but for small knifes it has a big flaw. You can't seem to get the last 1/2 inch or so against the handle sharpened. For a long blade that wouldn't matter but I mostly use small pocket knives and missing a quarter of the blade is isn't good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for Hunting/Outdoor Knives 16 Nov 2009
By Chris Virgin - Published on Amazon.com

This sharpener is about what I expected. I was looking for something to take along hunting and camping so I could sharpen my knife when needed (skinning a deer, etc.). An electric sharpener was out of the question, and I've used diamond stones before, and they aren't feasible for "in situ" sharpening. This sharpener works great for hunting-sized and larger knives (4" blade and longer).

I let a "friend" use my hunting knife and he mistook it for a hatchet and took some chips out of the edge trying to hack thru a deer pelvis... After 7-8 swipes with this sharpener, the edge was definitely more uniform, and the chips are definitely smoothed out.

My one gripe is that you're supposed to push the knife down thru the spring fingers and then pull back. After a few swipes, you end up with the finger pattern showing up on the knife edge. I can't tell that it hurts the knife at all, but it is slightly disconcerting.

Obviously, outdoor knives are stout cutlery and are meant for spirited and reliable use (aside from hacking at deer pelvis'), but I would definitely not recommend this for kitchen cutlery.

2.0 out of 5 stars I expected more from Gerber 13 Aug 2009
By D. Rodriguez - Published on Amazon.com

Small and compact and relatively easy to use but just didn't give a quality edge to any of my blades. Definately not for smaller pocket knife as previous reviewers have mentioned. From a company like Gerber I expected this sharpener to produce razor edge effects.
