Mine does that with a little cutting stuff on a stone block thrown in.

Mine bangs hers on the edge of a metal colander to knock debris off. I've shown her that it takes chunks of metal out of the blade, but she keeps doing it. Because of this, I don't bother with good knives, nor do I spend a great deal of time on blade maintenance.

No where close man. The hardest thing for a non pro sharpener is the correct angle. And the Work Sharp makes that a slice of cake. A belt sander does not make it easy and also only puts a convex edge on a blade. The average non trained guy will have a lot better time at it with the very easy to use work sharp.

I'll agree with Snipey on this one. OTOH, I'll be damned if I can put an edge on a Victorinox with it.
