I have owned two of these sharpeners. The first one wore out after years of use and I liked it so much I was happy to learn that it was still available. This sharpener is great for Japanese knives because of the angle the blade is held at. I use the diamond wheel when I really need to sharpen my knife and I use the ceramic wheel after the diamond wheel but I also use the ceramic wheel between uses just to keep a keen edge. I bought this sharpener for my son-in-law who also owns Japanese knives.

It worked perfectly. I had a high-carbon steel set of knives that were so hard to get sharpened properly. They actually had a 12 degree pitch instead of 10 degree, but a previous sharpener (I mean a person) had ruined them anyway, so nothing to lose. It took very many strokes through both stages (mostly through the diamond stage), but they ended up with a great 10-degree edge (10 degrees per side, or 20 total), flat and straight and sharp. The knives went from squashing celery to cutting into celery just on their own weight without pushing. Very important not to press too hard when sharpening or you might break the ceramic, and don't use it on traditional German steel knives intended for 15 to 20 degrees per side. I completely reshaped four knives with it, and it still seems to work; it was not designed for such heavy use, so it should be great for normal resharpening for many years.
