Default Worksharp

Just got my worksharp knife sharpener yesterday. Took me a while to make up my mind to buy one but so glad I did. I don't have a dull knife in the house anymore!

Got me one after seeing all the good stuff I seen on here 4 or 5 months ago.
It is as good as y'all said . Well worth it . Makes everything else obsolete if you ask me. I can sharpen every knife I own in less than 15 mins. With stones or lansky it would take hours

Yea the worksharp is very exciting to have at first. Then it gets you upset more and more. Upset because you don't have anything else to use it on.

From the reading I've done it does sharpen ceramic with a different belt.

Its not the sportsmans but why the color of your knife sharpener matters I don't know. I think the only difference is it's green. My Secret Santa got me the Sportsman model, I would have been happy with the regular one.

How much life can I expect to get out of the belts? Just wondering how many I need to order when I order my sharpener.

Have not used mine enough to say 100 percent but I sharpened about 20 different knives and a friend borrowed it and did at least 10. I do not see any noticable wear in belts.. I think i got like 2 or 3 extra belts of each. They cheap, and easier to order them now when you place the order than come back later

I have sharpened around 40 knives. I wore out the fine purple belt on prob number 35. The other orange belt still looks new. My kit came with a belt cleaning block and if you clean after each knife the belts last longer.

just read some of the questions on the above site. Said it wont sharpen ceramic

Said the ceramic is much harder than the belt. I only have one boker knife that has a ceramic blade. Gets to be a pain to ship it off every time to have it sharpened.

Which kit did you order. I haven't seen one with a belt cleaning block. Also did not see as an accessory.
