    I will give it a go. I had an old one, never got the hang of it, but it did not come with a DVD. Looking for a sharpening system for my Moras and such, debating between chosera stones, lansky system and I guess I will give this a second go.

    These have been on another passaround. If still interested in a few weeks, shoot me a PM or email.

    Could I give it a shot? I'm trying to pick between this and the Edge Pro Apex..

    My info should still be your PM box from the other pass-around.

    Yes indeed

    From my experience, I can say that the Edge Pro is best for establishing a bevel, and the spyderco sharpener is best for maintaining it.

    I use my Edge Pro once in a great while, and the Spyderco sharpener multiple times per week.

    I will locate and send the sharpener soon.

    I hope i'm not getting off topic, but I thought I saw mention of 15-20 deg bevel?
    What's the norm for Spyderco?
    I have a Lansky setup & I had to go 25 deg for my Spyderco Byrd before it even attempted to get somewhat of an edge (but still not to my standards).

    In the Spyderco SharpMaker DVD, Sal says that the factory strives to get you a 15 degree edge. However, they are done by hand, so figure a 1 degree margin.

    I ALWAYS use the 40 degree angle, or 20 degrees per side.

    In fact, I actually prefer the older 203 model that only has one set of angles.

    I worked w/that Byrd for over an hour with my Lansky using 15 deg. per side to no avail. Went to 20 & got somewhat of an edge. Not arm-hair shaving, but it'll cut semi-solid butter.
    I guess the Chinese Spyderco's aren't up to par w/US made ones?

    The Chinese Spydercos generally have inferior blade steel, but they should surely take an edge. The inferior aspect is that they generally will not keep the edge as long as a premium steel.

    Have been interested in this, perhaps maybe a idiot like me can use this well. Count me in if possible
