Do not use this on real knives. This literally shaves the blade off leaving it sharp.

Yes it is. The product has respectable number of reviews. The one you suggested also seems to be a good alternative.

How do you think sharpening works?

I have one of these. Different no name China brand. Paid about $3. It works ok. I find that because there's a thick piece of plastic that keeps the sharpening element in place, you don't get to sharpen the whole knife depending on it's design. I also didn't notice any benefit when using in ceramic knives.

Just ok overall IMHO

I agree great for getting dull knives that you want/need a quick edge-on and it leaves them plenty sharp without a ton of work...

These are made for steel knives. They might work on ceramic but I'd honestly be terrified to try. Could break a ceramic knife or create ceramic dust (which you shouldn't inhale).

We use this exact one all the time. We have a steel and a good quality quick sharpener, but this is the one we use regularly. It's so simple to use and it's worth having to sharpen a little more frequently.

I have to agree with the first poster, even though I think he was being sarcastic.

The way sharpeners like this work, it ends up leaving micro-serrations and burrs in the blade edge as you pull it through. Those serrations get bigger over time after repeated sharpening, and cause the blade to not be able to "hold an edge" for very long, or at all in severe cases.

I had used a well-rated sharpener like this(8x the price though) until it almost ruined a paring knife I frequently used. I had to get a diamond sharpening stone (about $15 IIRC) to get the nicks out of it, and from then on I used a proper whetstone ($15-20). The whetstone takes longer, but it holds an edge much MUCH longer than even the best results I ever had from the V-style sharpener.

There is a massive rabbit hole you can dive into when it comes to knife sharpening, and I try to stay out of it because it can get expensive and time consuming. However, one thing that those people who argue over stropping and precise angles all agree on is that these "Drag-Through" style sharpeners are only for people who hate their knives.

Similar whetstone to what I use:

Similar Diamond whetstone I used (only for restoring really dull or damaged edges, can also be used for resurfacing other whetstones)

I keep one in the kitchen drawer. Works great. The steel side is good for most old or cheap knives that can use an aggressive sharpening, but the ceramic side is actually very easy on steel. It hones the blade. I've tried all the different quick sharpeners out there and I've settled on this one. You won't find a better sharpener of this type for the price. Read the reviews, most people like it.
