    Wow! I received my new Apex system as a gift and I've been working with it for a couple of days. After watching Ben's video over and over and over I finally dove right in with a knife that had not been sharpened in a while. I'm amazed at how easy the system is to use but more amazed at how well it works! I am a culinary student and have lots of old and new knives. I have a long way to go before I am 100% confident in what I am doing, but so far I am really impressed. I will be recommending this to my school and my chef instructors. Once I get better at it I will take it to school and do a demo for them. Thanks Ben for a great product!

    After a long journey of making knifes worthless and many "This is the one" sharpening systems I found Apex 4. The unit allows me to put the ind of edge on my knifes I have always wanted to. Easy to use and well made. I now hand out band aids with the knifes I sharpen for people. Enough research on the internet and you will find a great system

    This is a close to perfect for sharpening kitchen knives that I have used! I have a fairly large set of Wusthof chefs knives , carvers, slicers, paring, utility and steak knives. I started sharpening these freehand and realized I would have limited success not being able to hold the angle consistently. I also tried a couple of higher end knife sharpening systems which clamp the knife in place. I had inconsistent results with those because I had to constantly clamp and unclamp my 6 to 12" chefs knives. The burr was inconsistent and it was a lot of work just clamping and unclamping. It also left a mark after a while where I clamped. I figured there must be a better way. I found and purchased the Edge Pro Apex and I couldn't be happier! This system allows me to move the knife freely as I sharpen creating a consistent bur along the edge. I can alternate from side to side sharpening both sides without clamping. I have found it is much faster and is much more consistent. I modified my profile to use a dual angle 20/15 degrees per Ben's instructions and it works perfectly and is considerably sharper than the Wusthof factory edge. Now when I re-sharpen there is a much smaller edge to sharpen. It is also easier to hone with the steel and keep sharp between sharpenings. I highly recommend!

    I wanted the Edge Pro sharpener for a long time but just couldn't justify the expense. Then my wife bought it for me as a christmas gift. A week later I've sharpened all our knives and some for firends. the polishing tapes were something I never thought I'd use. But they put such a lovely mirror finish on the blades of my expensive folding knives that I really like them. There is a "Zen" aspect to sharpening knives that appeals to me. It's hard t explain, but it makes me happy to have a keen edge on the blade; and to know that I can maintain it myself. Now I want the round glass and silicon carbide sand to resurface the sharpening stones. I know I will need them. My one regret is that the Apex system won't sharpen scissors. (You'll need the Pro system for that). But I love this tool. Scary sharp knives on every blade.

    After doing mediocre sharpening for a long time I decided I wanted something better. This kit is absolutely excellent. In 45 minutes I took two average knives and put an outstanding edge on them. Not cheap but the results are worth every penny.

    I thought there would be more of learning curve, but it is not that bad. A little like rubbing your tummy while patting your head at first, But after a little practice you get used to it. I practiced with "cheap" knives at first.(and even those came out pretty good.) Then I moved to my more expensive knives, Some with "super steels". M390, CPM-M4, ZDP-189, S35VN, VG-10, D2 and so on. They all came out unbelievably sharp! Not only sharp, But beautifully polished and even. Perfect! I have used other guided systems with great success, But this one is the best by far. It can do all knives of all sizes, all blade shapes and all grinds. With 2 small C-clamps and some imagination you can even sharpen scissors! Thanks Ben!

    I bought this system because I live in the middle of nowhere and could not find a place to get my cooking knives sharp. I have been sharpening knives with hand stones for 30 years and do a good job at it, but I am used to having that perfect edge that can only be obtained by a professional sharpener. I researched for a while and finally decided on the edge pro system. I watched the videos, practiced on a couple of old knives I had in the garage, and then tackled my cooking knives. My cooking knives now have incredible edges and so do the knives of all my friends. I generally get a bottle of wine for my efforts, but if the demand keeps up, I am going to start charging folks. I didn't plan on becoming a professional knife sharpener, but word is getting out. If you want to get a really great edge on your knives, spring for this system. What good is having a $200 chef's knife if it has a $2 edge?

    Holy Smokes. Just put a wicked edge on two Shun kitchen knives, and promptly cut myself. (my fault, used to having to push too hard with the old edges). I sent the knives out to be sharpened previously. It cost $25 per session, took two weeks, and the job was no where near as good. I have also just deposited my gatco Sharpening system into the garbage for good - good riddance! Very seldom do you get what you pay for in this economy, but the Edge Pro delivers.

    I have had this a few years now and this sharpens like no other. Once I set the angles resharpening is quick and easy. The edges hold longer then ever too. The more I have used it, the faster I am a sharpening. It is not easier, but this works much better then the diamond grinders.
