Swing and a miss Massdrop. These things destroy knives. If you have a knife enthusiast on the staff... Maybe leave the knife drops to them.
I see that many are in agreement with me about the wisdom of using a pull-thru. There's a line in a Kinky Friedman song about pull-ahead cafes. And there are crazy drivers guilty of pull-outs.........in front of me. There should be a law against pull-outs. Hmmm. Shotgun shells for hunting chickens- pellets for pullets. But, I digest. There are much better choices for knife sharpening than this. The portable Lansky that was offered recently is way better.
TACTICAL!!!!
PP1? 😁 I'll wait for KK2... maybe after coffee

Wouldn’t qq2 be next
Interesting that it comes with a pocket clip and glass breaker. I doubt I would actually ever pocket carry it though - it would take up my actual knife spot. For field carry, I prefer the Lansky PS-MED01 BladeMedic. The diamond rod is good for touch ups on a machete and there's a section of flat ceramic for a finer edge.
You can't be serious selling a pull thorough sharpener with tungsten carbide. Are you trying to ruin people's knives here? Unless you have dollar store knives do not use this piece of garbage. You really should be ashamed of yourselves for even trying to push this type of sharpener on a high end knife site.

High end knife site??? What? Where? Who? When? Why? I do hope you aren't implying MD is a high end knife site, most of the knives they sell are on the lower end of the market, even their expensive ones are still generally affordable and under the $300 mark. That being said, you do raise a good point. Nobody should ever use a pull thru sharpener unless they really hate the knife they're carrying or it's incredibly cheap. A pocket stone is easier to carry then this and won't obliterate the lifespan of your blade., if you hunt and need to field sharpen.
This looks like something that would be good for your camp/hiking bag. I'm not dragging my stones out into the wilderness, but I would pack this to fix up my machate or camp knife.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000O8OTNC/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza $8.95, with Prime shipping. This would be a good listing for "Mass Drop International", for benefit of customers who cannot access Amazon, and are in need of a moderately priced method to mess their knives up.
The diamond rod scratched up a nice blade of mine - never again!

It pissed me off no end - I like to keep my things REALLY nice. If it had been one of my William Henry knives...you know what they say about a moments carelessness.

The consequences appear nine months later???????????
Looking for input on quality of these? Do they give a good sharpen? Maybe good for the EDC that is cheap and just need a decent edge put on it?

There are pictures of highly magnified knife edges that have been abused with these devices that can be found on the internet. One could likely get a sharp edge on a knife with these, but I would not call it good.

In a nutshell, no. I bought one at Cabella's and I'm pretty sure the only reason nobody laughed at me was because the lovely clerk who checked me out was a lady in her 60s, who probably sharpens kitchen knives with something similar. It ruined a blade, but luckily it was a cheap swiss army knife. I need advice on a sharpener that will work with a Ferum Forge Crux.
I would never use one of these pull - through sharpeners, unless it was an absolutely last resort. They are terrible for your blades.

I'll go with that, def never put one of my nice blades through one though!

Agreed 👍
Does anyone know the sharpening angle of the hones? I'm assuming 20 degrees each side, 40 degrees total angle..

You are correct. I just called Smith's and asked about this. Smith's volunteered that this particular model has not been released yet.
I like the Lansky system - relatively inexpensive and provides a professionally uniform edge - razor sharp. I've been using for years. (I do have the sharpmaker, but nothing beats the Lansky)
