Work Sharp Ken Onion Edition, looking on CCC this is an all time low price. Fantastic reviews, I have one and it works well, all though there is a learning curve so practice on some cheap knives first while you learn. Sorry can't get the link to embed on mobile.

That is JUST the grinding attachment that goes on the Ken Onion work sharp. Not the actual work sharp system. "For Use With Item# 41587"

Bought this a few weeks ago at a little bit higher price and this is the lowest I've seen it since I was tracking it. Great knife sharpening system that has a brief learning curve to it but once you figure it out(read instructions) it puts a nice edge on your knife, highly recommend.

There are attachments that can be purchased for this device, such as the grinding attachment, that may look like they include the work sharp system itself, however they do not. As Camelcamelcamel states this is an all time low price for this.

Also, if you are looking for an electric sharpening system, this is as good and versatile as it gets. If you are willing to go manual with a stone and an angle keeper, you can go crazy, but personally I just don't have the time to sit there and do that. If you follow the directions and are careful, you can get a brilliantly sharp edge in 10 minutes or less. Plus you can easily change the angle from kitchen to tactical to "scary sharp" for all different types of knives. Even the expensive electric sharpeners that sit on the bench are usually only for kitchen angles.

I have the regular version of this and love it. Really makes your knives sharp. As someone else put it scary sharp.

I would recommend practicing on some cheaper knives before you grind on your favorite. It doesn't take long to learn the pressure needed, but if you are using the coarser belts, you can take a gouge out of your knife in a split second by putting too much pressure. I used cruddy old knives for my first 3 - 4 trials.

This system is by far the best Electric sharpening system I have ever seen. I love it.

I've had the normal, non-ken onion version of this tool on my wish list for a while. Is there any reason why I should hold out for this one?

I've used both and own the Ken Onion version. The KO is a sturdier, more heavy-duty model. I believe the motor is a little more powerful, and the sharpening guides are more adjustable. The real reason to prefer it is all the attachments. The grinding attachment linked in an early comment doesn't include the motor as pointed out by other comments, but that attachment provides almost infinite flexibility for sharpening knives. I use that attachment more than the triangle shaped system that comes with the motor, and they don't make the extra attachments for the non-KO model. For future expandability the KO is the way to go and this is the best price I've seen.

I agree that this is a great sharpener and that the Ken Onion edition is worth it. I also echo the advice to try on some cheap knives first. Read the directions so that you know how to sharpen without rounding the point of your knife or dulling it instead of sharpening it (both common mistakes).

I have used several different sharpening systems and I know how to sharpen on a standard stone but this is the best solution for sharpening knives FAST and keeping them sharp.

You can get a better edge with stones, that being said it's very convenient to touch up your blade while skinning and de-boning a deer with one of these, just a quick 5sec touch up with the highest grit and you're back to slicing through even the warmest meat/fat.. it changed my view for sure and this year was another abnormally warm winter.

I won't buy one just because my friend brings his over during deer season laugh out loud
