Save the money. If you only have a few items to sharpen…use a ceramic or diamond stone and a leather strop. I’ve done this for years and I have a lot of items I have to sharpen. A ceramic or diamond stone holds it’s shape and will laste a long time….I have made small wood triangles that I use to get the feel of the tool at the right angle on the stone …I use a course stone on a dull tool….but mostly I use a fine stone to refresh the edge….then a few strops….walla…a very sharp and useful tool.
