Cool. Hope it helped.
Will do. Thanks.
Well, I said that, but I just found out I only planned to do that...because here I confessed to "jumping right in with the ZT0561" lol The WORK SHARP
Luckily I have several really cheap knives to try out. All of my EDC Kershaws were sharpened at the factory sale at the beginning of the month. My old Gerber Gator is one knife I would like to bring back from the dead. When you showed your 0561 done with this sharpener, I was settled on it being the right tool for me.
What have y'all found to be an excellent set of grits between 220 and 6000 to get the best results? What brand belts and where to get them at lowest price points?
I have had great success with the 5 grrit band set that Work Sharp sells for replacement. IDK the grits off the top of my head.
I have found a few dealers of aftermarket belts on fleabay. Lots cheaper than the work sharp brand . for original work sharp more grit options as well. I have found 3000 grit will produce a shiny polished edge that still is a little toothy.

Got my Ken Onion version today and practiced on a few cheap kitchen knives but will practice more before trying a good knife.
I love mine. In fact after using my zt 0350, a guy at work brought me a shoe box full of knives, and a replacement pack of belts.
I use mine mainly on the high grits counts. Ive seen many people jack up their knives with low grits. Do not pull it all the way through.....
Gonna revive this for a question....
I'm thinking about getting the Ken Onion version of this.
Does anyone know what the blade/grind angle is for a Spyderco Native 5?
I would recommend you not to get the worksharp, It's a pain in the to sharpen thicker blades that aren't very broad on it(at least while the Guide is on) and it can scratch your blades. Plus some knives (Otter Mercator is the first one that comes to my mind) can't be put in Far enough to sharpen completely from the Heel. That said it will produce nice convex edges and polish them pretty well

I personally would never use a belt sander type sharpening device.
If I wanted a photo worthy edge, I'd use a wicked edge pro 2.
I just need a sharp knife, and polishing an edge makes it smoother and looks pretty cool.
I use water stones, and for me it is quite pleasant and makes me relaxed (relaxed is better with sharpening freehand, trust me).
But I think this would be good for beginners or people who cannot sharpen freehand. Though it would be useless on the field...
