Man JC you need to call them and get a pinch of each one ordered or at least get them to be a sponsor on Trad Gang! - I bet they are sold out in the next few days - I ordered too!

I see one that has two washers on it, looks different from the photo at the beginning of this thread.  It the same one?

Glad to see others have had success with this sharpener.Told my brother about using it to sharpen my  knife and BH's and he looked at me like I was stupid,so Ikept it under my hat.It puts the best edge on my magnus BH'S with least amount of work,just a few strokes and grab your skin sharp!Mine isn't a Simmons,came with a set of kitchen knives and laid in a drawer for years until I tried it.

Sorry guys been out playin all weekend.

Yes, it's the same one shown on the site, two washers.

Naw, I don't care anything about getting anything from them, but Terry and Rob, maybe ya'll should give them a holler about being sponsors?   :saywhat:  Mainly, I just wanted folks to have access to such a cheap, easy to use tool that works so well.

Yes, back to front, pulling through the washers. Play with the angle and you will get it right.

I'd like to hear back from ya'll after you try it to hear your results.

JC- got mine today and used it right away.  It got my eclipse heads that I had hand filed and then shot, razor sharp again in a few strokes with a heck of a lot less work.  Sharpened my pocket knife in three strokes. Can't wait to try it on a new broadhead.  Well worth it.  Thanks for the thread.  By the way, are those copperhead skins on your bow?

Vince, glad it works for you. Silly how good it works for $7, ain't it?

A wheel system like this will put a hollow grind edge on the blades.  There are similar systems out there, but not nearly as economical.  The trick is not to apply too much pressure. For practice, take a cheap nonserrated steak knife and practice peeling slivers of metal off the knife.

Holy Cow, Just got mine and I cannot believe how easy it is to use. A few strokes and every head I tried is hair poppin sharp. Easiest thing I have ever used. I thought the Accu sharp was good. This is much easier. This thing is da bomb.

Gotta get me one of those! (Got one of the paper wheel systems but STILL haven't got set up to use it yet - though I am working on my glory hole room again, even as we speak. However it is too close to deer season to hope I'll get it done.) Gotta get me one of those!!!   :p
