Know nothing about knife sharpening. Can you sharpen ceramic knives with these?

No. Ceramic is extremely hard and brittle. You could probably do it with some care and a diamond sharpening stone.

The cheap generic Chinese stones are great for learning.
That being said there's a lot of junk in this package.

The bamboo base is useless, they slip and are just worse than placing the stone in rubber ridge on a solid flat surface.

Sharpening guides are garbage. They limit you and scratch your knifes, learn how to hold and angle yourself.

Ive used these 400/1000 generics before, they do the job just fine, but the 400 is a bit "soft" and will wear relatively fast. But is pretty much perfect for a learner IMO.

I see no reason why anyone would ever use a generic 3000 or 8000 grit stone, get a strop block and green compound, it will just work better for polishing your edges.

Both of those "flatteners" are garbage. Either get a real sharpener, a flat paver stone, or some 150 grit sandpaper and a flat surface, any of those will work better for stone flattening.

TLDR/My 2 cents: Get a generic 400/1000 with rubber grip from amazon for $10 instead Only use the 400 grit if there's serious damage to your edge (easily visible chipping), and the 1000 for maintenance, get yourself a strop block (or a piece of fullgrain leather you glue to something hard and flat) with some green compound.

I know regular whetstone users will scoff at me, but I started on those as well. Learned how to sharpen when I was 10. As much as I like keeping a knife sharp so no one gets hurt in the kitchen, there is nothing I have found that does it as fast as the ken onion knife sharpener from Work Sharp. The whetstone will always be better, but this thing makes short work of a kitchen knife and keeps us with a great edge on our blades.

As was pointed out earlier, don't even try to sharpen a ceramic blade. I have the right equipment to do it and even I only attempt it on ones that are otherwise pretty far gone and that's just for the challenge. It's not worth the time, effort, or cost of equipment.

Quote from timeracer :
A knife sharpener is different than a strop or steel. One actually removes material the other straightens the edge. If you've been only using a piece of ceramic for years your knife isn't all that sharp, might be sharp enough for your use but could definitely use a real sharpening if it's a decent knife. As the blade edge is worn down through use and needs a regrind to get that edge back and no reasonable amount of stropping will fix that.
I was being a little sarcastic of course. I do occasionally strop with my belt. I have a diamond sharpener for when I really need to nail it, but I've found the bottom of a coffee mug actually does a reasonable touch-up most of the time.

Quote from 91LT250R :
Thanks guys! Which sharpener or stones would be good to help me learn the correct angle(s)?
Stones themselves won't help you with angles. Only guides of some kind (whether built in to a sharpener or ones you attach) can help you learn that. Many people are against them because they can cause damage to the stones and blades. But if you're new enough to sharpening that you need them, you shouldn't be sharpening $100 knifes yet anyway. So I say get some to help you learn.

There are many styles, from just a wedge that attaches to the end of the stone, to the kind the clip on the the spine. The ones that attach to the knife move with the knife, but the wedges are good for when you just need help starting the angle. But by all means get some of your choice and put a piece of electricians or thin duct tape on the outside where they'll make contact with the stone; that will prevent damage. Spend some time practicing on different knives and you'll build up muscle memory. But start with some knives you don't care about that much.

You'll just need to decide on the degree angle; smaller angle = more fragile edge. You can get any knife razor sharp*, it becomes a question of what kind of abuse you're going to subject it to. So kitchen knives sit somewhere in the 16-22 degree range (16ish for Japanese style that are closer to a razor, 20 for a general western style that won't be maintained on a daily basis). Pocket & outdoor knives tend to take more abuse so need a wider angle for strength, so they sit around 22-30 degrees. I typically do about 25 for my main pocket knife.

*any knife can be made razor sharp; the thinner the angle the crazier sharp you can get it but at the expense of fragility. a straight razor is incredibly narrow angle but will chip & shatter if you subject it to wood carving. conversely a pocket knife can be made sharp enough to shave for awhile but won't stay that way long. so you have to find the appropriate balance.

Personally tried these and dmt diamond stones and the dmt knife butterfly knife looking sharpener.

For knives, I end up using the DMT double sided diafold. It just works better and is more ergonomic to just ride the stone back n forth. For woodworking, dmt diamond stones are a must have. I don't think I'll ever go back to wet stones.

I have the non Ken Onion version and love it.

Took your advice, cancelled the order that I placed earlier today and bough this one [amazon.com] for $10 instead.

I don't understand about this deal though. There is 40+ thumb up but zero positive comments about the product. I check the fakespot and it got a grade B (hence the reason I orignally placed the order). Is this product really that bad or most commenters here are sharpener snoob/expert?

most likely, all the wetstones in amazon is made in china.$20 is good price for this set. Even you buy from aliexpress, you have to the similar price.

I'd recommend skipping the cheap off brand, and just get the stone that has been sold for over 150 years.

If you want an angle guide and just want to sharpen kitchen knives and a few pocket knives, then I'd recommend this kit:

I tried oil stones and DMT too. I got about half way sharpening with the DMT when I realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves.
