    I have not used that particular sharpener but have used similar ones. Looks to be just a standard ceramic sharpener.
    IMHO, Belt sanders cant be beat.

    Except if you want to carry it with you, eh?

    ;-)

    I'd need a new backpack at the very least.

    Not to worry, It's on wheels. All you need is a long cord or generator...

    I'm interested in the A. G. Russell Ceramic Sharpener as well, anyone know what the angle of the rods is set at?

    I use the Spyderco Sharpmaker now and have for years but I like the looks of this one better and the fact that it has round rods. I have a few recurve blades so I'm use to using only the corners of the Sharpmaker and with the A. G. Russell Ceramic Sharpener I wouldn't have to turn the rods plus it looks nice so I'd probably leave it out in my kitchen.

    I'd be curious to know if Mr. Russell uses this sharpener to touch up his Acies. I've used the Acies for months now and I've touched it up on the Sharpmaker but truly the ZDP-189 has never been dull. I try to make a habit of not allowing any of my knives to become dull so I truly don't know if the cermaic rods would put a fine edge back on a semi-dull ZDP-189 blade or not. I would think that the ceramic would work fine but I'd love to hear from the man himself on this if possible.

    Thank you.

    I use the one in my kitchen when every one of the more than a dozen paring knives are dull, then I use3 it on everything.

    I use the one im the showroom every day to demonstrate for customers and once in a while on all four of the EDC knives, including the Acies.

    Mr. Russell,
    Great to hear your input, what angle is are the rods fixed at?

    Take care.
    By the way, I'm loving that Acies! It carries so nice in the front jeans pocket (set for tip up) and I love how much blade (and the shape of the blade) you managed to get inside that frame.
