Now that I have the Goldenstone, I use the sharpmaker half as much as I used to, maybe less. I can do a touch up on the fine goldenstone in less than a minute, including the time to find it in my cluttered drawer. A slick little gadget.
If you think a bit, you will realize that you can hold the goldenstone firmly on the table and get any angle from 10 to 20 by varying the angle you hold the knife at, iin the horizontal plane. With a sharpie you can get as precise as you want doing this. Yeah, I know I should draw a picture, but some clever folks will "get it".
I also like the fact that you can use the leather sheath for the GOLDENSTONE as a non-skid base for working on hard, slick surfaces. Even if I had 3 different grit selections of the GOLDENSTONE i.e. FINE, Medium & Ultra-Fine that would make a great travel kit. However I'm going to get the CBN GOLDENSTONE ASAP. My DUCKFOOT which is the older, discontinued diamond version of the GOLDENSTONE just didn't have the grit I needed for it to do me much good.
It's almost once a week I say to myself " IF I Just Had An ULTRA-FINE Version OF The GOLDENSTONE I Wouldn't Need The Sharpmaker Kit Nearly As Often"
