At first I thought I’d regret paying “so much” money for a quality sharpening kit. In the end, though, I bought the KMFS system anyway, added the 200, 500 and 800 diamond whetstones and I’m totally satisfied. I sharpen everything with them at home, and I think I do rather well for an amateur. I sharpen small knives, as well as large kitchen ones made of RWL34 and Elmax. So my advice is: don’t repeat my mistakes and don’t waste money on imperfect systems – buy KMFS straight away, you won’t regret it. We’re not so rich as to buy cheap things.
