Nice tool! I use something similar sometimes like a powerfile to refine my grind when I forge my knives, but I polish the blades by hand and finish the edge with a diamond stone and then a wet stone, sometimes a final on the fine bevel with a paper laminate. time and patience get the best edge. I cringe to see them pull through sharpeners tearing up good blades lol.

Nice toy... but isn't that way-aggressive for most knives?
(Unless you've been trying to cut rebar with it)
I could see using this for wood chisel and the likes.

Personally. I always try to use as smooth a stone as possible to do the job.

I mostly use medium and fine whetstones.
This will give you an idea on them.
I also have and have used the diamond block. Its much faster than the
others but does not give as smooth a finish, but they cut like crazy due to that.

Best Wishes

Depending on the knife I use whetstone son kitchen knives, and the spyderco or Lansky diamond or regular stones.

I use the spyderco, but would prefer to have traditional wet stones. I use a belt sander for the machete and lawnmower.
Sometimes I toy with the idea of getting that interesting Russian sharpener and offering a sharpening service.

1" x42" belt vertical belt sander. (big brother to op's)
I slowed it down to reduce heat by changing pulleys.
I have belts from 80 grit to 4000 grit, and a leather belt for power stropping.
I can put a shaving edge on almost anything, but I prefer an edge with a little tooth for cooking work, so I often stop around 400 for kitchen knives.
I've tried lots of different types, (lansky, etc). Once you learn the angles, nothing beats the moving belt.

12 springers and a couple of pumpers.
2 lathes and lots of scrap metal.

Too soon old too late smart.

Lawn mower/axe I just use a file. Tried a flap wheel, or my belt sander. But didn't get the results I liked.

For kitchen knives I got one of those ceramic pull thru ones. I got the rod one in the knife block, but haven't mastered it yet.

For my other EDC knives I just got a Lansky blade medic.
