    I ordered a Block Knife Sharpener about 3 days ago and I have not been more impressed or satisified with a purchase in a long time. I have owned and used many high profile sharpening systems such as Lansky, KME, Wicked Edge, Ken Onion (electrical), Spyderco guided rails, a ton of pull throughs such as the Blade Medic by Lansky and of course Traditional whetstones and strops. This is AMAZING at creating WICKED burrs that in turn make SCARY SHARP APEXES which results in… SCARY SHARP BLADES! The fact it conforms to the angle of your blade is just icing on the cake… Way to go Paul Block. It tears me up when you sharpen someones knife and they just walk on, those heartless heathens… Or when you ask for someone, ANYONE to hand them a knife to sharpen and no one answers. If I were there I would volunteer my EDC blade. I carry some of the finest blades you can buy, at least within my budget. I have used your sharpener to put a combat worthy edge on my Benchmade Infidel 3300BK (EDC), Microtech Combat Troodon and my combat blade when I know something is going down or i’m expecting tangos’ Gerber Mark II. I trusted all three of them with this puppy. Keep up the good work sir! -Mike from Texas
