Look on worksharp website. They sale a diamond belt said to be for ceramic.

I know this is a very old thread but have any of y'all tried the 6000 grit silicon carbide abrasive belts versus the regular 6000 grit purple ones that it comes with? They cost a good bit more but if they work better and last longer I don't mind the extra cost.

I almost bought one of these sharpeners the other day. Had it in my hand but put it back on the shelf.

Are y'all still happy with this sharpener ?

I love mine also but seems like the 6000 grit belts that came with it wear out in 1 or two knives tops. That's why I was asking if anybody has tried the silicon carbide abrasive ones.

I still use the regular belts. The 6000 does appear to wear quick but I use them for a while. Just takes a few extra passes.

I love it. Heven't got into the high grit belts though. I like to hand sharpen but after a while you loose that precise angle. I use the worksharp to get it back. It worth the money I promise.

Default Worksharp

If you haven't already bought one, amazon has the worksharp ken onion edition for $39.99 with free shipping, but it may be a typo.

That's a sweet deal! I'm tempted to order one just for a spare

I found the belt replacement packs at Field and Stream here in Lafayette yesterday. Picked up two boxes of the 6000 grit for $10 apiece.

I bought one several weeks ago. I like it. Puts a nice edge and angle.

Quick and easy.....

After reading this thread, I bought one on Amazon. This thing is awesome! I've sharpen every knife in the house. Even cheap Walmart knifes that have been sitting around for years can be razor sharp in about 2 minutes.
