YMMV

I was in Lowe's for the dryer deal and checked over the clearance pile. Saw a bunch of the Work Sharp WSKTS knife sharpeners for $41. Seems to be in person only and not online.

I know there was a recent thread with the Ken Onion version of this with great reviews. There is a former butcher on the forums (sorry bud, I can't remember your name) that I hope will see this and comment. Amazon reviews look good.

I don't get the opportunity to post new threads often, so, hope this is all right.

Site shows $69 but brickseek does reflect 41.99

3Camel says lowest amazon price is $47.57

Thanks for posting, OP, and giving the Brickseek link. Interesting about the in-store price versus online. I know Lowe's has been going through many changes, but have they done away with reflecting the in-store price on their website? Three in-stock locally, where, as you stated, online is different than Brickseek. It has traditionally been that Lowe's online would reflect the in-store price for the selected store.

I've been sharpening knives for 20 years. I use Japanese waterstones exclusively for knife sharpening. I would never use a belt for knife sharpening especially expensive knives because you can remove way too much metal. If you take your knives to a typical professional shop to sharpen they will most likely use a belt sharpener because it's fast but they over sharpen. You won't notice because the end result is that it's sharp. My number one rule of sharpening is NEVER over sharpen. That said, I use a belt sander that I flip over for my workshop to sharpen tools and it works great. The belt sander belts are cheap and much wider so they are better for tools. You can also get a lot of mileage out of one belt. I suspect that the belts for this device are a lot more than belts for belt sanders. The price for a decent belt sander that I bought on Amazon is about the same.

I've been wondering this myself -- seems new. The web site used to accurately reflect in-store price for me as well.
