I really like this set up and I'm really trying to get the hang of it. So far it really sharpens whatever blade I put to it.
I love the products
Great product and service.
I want to thank Amy as well as everyone involved in getting my replacement order shipped out to me.
I immediately started sharpening the kitchen knives and steak knives and also my pocket knife. It will take me some time to master the technique but the knives are sharper now. Next time I will get the diamond sharpener.
Thanks again for a wonderful product.

I love my sharper but i still learning
My knives came out sharper than they’ve ever been. My only complaint is the soft gasket on the clamp makes it hard to secure the apparatus. I’m constantly having to turn the whole thing back to center. Solve that issue and then the rating goes up to 5 stars.
Extremely easy to use and my knives have never been sharper
I love the system !!
On the next model can you put a level on the side to adjust angels
The sharpening system was very easy to use and worked very well! I watched several YouTube videos beforehand.
Great product and service
In addition to being a lifelong woodworker who owns more sharpening systems that I care to admit, I also sharpen my wife’s kitchen knives. Without a doubt this is the best system I’ve ever owned for sharpening knives. I also purchased the diamond stones and the combination is unbeatable.
This system is the BEST to provide you with the sharpest knives you’ve ever used. Other systems I’ve used cannot compete.
Simple setup, easier to sharpen knives with this setup!
Easy to operate. Hardest part of setup is the angle setup. Otherwise it works really well. Knives are really sharp after using this sharpener.
Live this! Works super well- hot all my kitchen and fishing knives sharper than the have ever been. Definitely the best sharpening set up I’ve ever used!
Remarkably easy to use with fabulous results. Takes the guesswork out of maintaining the correct sharpening angle.
The system works great and what you see in the videos is truly what you get. I've used it twice now since I've bought it about a month ish ago. The first time using it was just getting the hang of the motion and and how much pressure I should use. Second time using it the knife became amazingly sharp in a short period of time. I have a similar type of knife sharpener system name brand in the business and this one blows it out of the water.
The sharpener worked as advertised on all our knives!
Only one issue was one of the whetstones was cracked.
Works as expected. After getting to know my way around it, I sharpened every knife I could get my hands on. I also ordered the diamond inserts.
My husband is so pleased with his new knife sharpening kit. He is devoted to keeping all our sharp tools and kitchen knives in top shape and this set of tools really helps. Than you for all your great customer service too!
I read all the reviews prior to ordering. Some of them were stellar, others less than. One of the complaints I read was that the sharpener came with substandard parts. I don’t know where they ordered there from, but the quality of my sharpener was extremely good. I feel that it will hold up to years of use. The only negative I can offer, is that I suggest you upgrade the stones to the Diamond stones. The stones that came with the unit were good, but the Diamond stones are superior. I am extremely happy with my purchase.
Quite a creative approach to sharpening. I sharpen much more than standard kitchen knives, so I found the versatility of angle adjustment very advantageous. As a test of both the device and me I chose a "wall hanger" that was gifted to me by my father. It is a northern European designed hunting/fishing knife, so the angles are NOTHING like a kitchen knife. This knife was extremely well worn with rolls, chips, just plain YEARS of wear and tear. Did Wasabi restore the condition to new . . . no. Did it make this old knife useable again? ABSOLUTELY! I also tested one of my EDC folding knives that was also well worn. Although I had semi-retired this particular EDC knife due to wear, I'm proud to say it is back in regular rotation. Just like everything in life you want to be good at, there will be growing pains to your success. Practice, go slow, make mistakes but learn from them, have patience and Wasabi will make you a better sharpener and save you money. I also bought one for my brother!
My son was delighted with his knife sharpener. Right away he sharpened every knife in his kitchen.
Very nice quality, I am a beginner so found the instructions to have no use to me. Practice on a cheap knife first to get the hang of it.
Works well. convenient set up.
Really nice probably the best sharpening system on the market. I'm very pleased how easy it operates I've never gotten my knifes this sharp. I love it!! I'd definitely recommend it to a friend.
I was sceptical but this device totally works as advertised. I’ve used all kinds of devices but this tool sharpens the blades to a razors edge. The best and last sharpener you’ll ever need. Fantastic!
Pleased with the product! It did take a little bit of time to set the angle to get the 15 degree edge I was after. Knowing what I now know I would definitely purchase this again.
I bought this for my son-in-law for Christmas. I was at their home shortly after the holidays and he was sharpening the knives for my daughter, and I was watching. Of course, he started to explain what everything did and why you needed to do it, which I intently listened to without understanding a word of it. I will say, her knives are now amazing, and I am definitely going to purchase one for my husband!
Works as advertised! I can now replicate the exact angle needed for all of my knives.
This was a gift for my husband, who has sharpened my kitchen knives for decades. He was really impressed (not an easy achievement), and said it took a lot less time and got great results.
Would highly recommend this product
It is a great product
It's awesome! All my knives and barbers scissors are now sharp.
Very satisfied. I have tried so many knife sharpeners, and i now have one that actually really does the job.
Works precisely as advertised... One must actually do what the directions say to do in order to get the results one seeks, despite some of the negative reviews.
Overall this is a great product and works well for me. I sharpened all my kitchen knives and my EDC knife with ease. My only complaint is the clamp that mounts the sharpener to a table top. I wish there were more options for how to mount this. My workbench in the garage has a 1" overhang so I can't mount this to workbench properly, I had to put a piece of wood in my bench vice and mount it to that wood which is inconvenient but gets the job done.
A bit fiddly to set up and to get the angles correct, but once you get it right you get great results
The sharpener was easy to set up and use. It did a great job on our knives.
Great product. Easy to set up, and easy to use. Put an unbelievable edge on my favorite knife.
Very easy to use and they do an excellent job sharpening the knives
High quality excellent product, very easy to set up and use. Works perfectly
Based on your quality of metals I’m sure it will work for many years, thank you so much, it’s ben a pleasure!!
Thank you again,
I bought two of your sharpeners for my friends and they love them.
Came just as described, takes a little practice to get a routine but end result is a great cutting edge.
Works a treat, wish I'd had one years ago!
As advertised, great way to restore an edge and keep knives sharp!
It is a great product
The unit performed as advertised. I now have a full collection of sharp knives.
Was Christina gift for husband, he absolutely loved everything about it.
The system works great. Takes practice to get it to work properly. I just got the Diamond stones for it and have not tried them yet. The recommended angle of 18 degrees is a little steep I think for my knives a 12 to 15 degree angle would be more desirable.
So far hubby loves it
Once I received my Wasabi I was like a fat kid eating a donut. Happy as can be. I opened my package and realized that I didn’t receive the additional 4 stones that I ordered. So I gave it a few more days. I contacted customer care and they were Johnny on the spot. I took photos of what I had and the Bart next day they responded and stated that they would ship my stones ASAP. Super easy to set up and use. I highly recommend the Wasabi knife sharpener.
Had a bad shipping experience and my sharpener was lost in shipment. The customer service I received getting a replacement sharpener was exceptional. Quality product and a great company to deal with giving A+++ service. Thanks again, Tim
For someone who for years have sharpened knives using wet stones this is quite the tool. It is faster and much more accurate and repetable.
It is also easier to use on some of the longer knives that I use.
I've already shown it to several of my friends and we took a suntoku blade which was very dull and brought it to its "base" shape then proceed to sharpen it.
It didvery well taking off the massive amounts of metal to even out the base shape.
I have already ordered some extra stones in anticipation of sharpening knives for some of my non-sharpening friends.
While it takes a bit to get it set up (watch the video and search online for the other questions you will have), it works pretty well and you can create a sharp edge with the included wet stones. I bought some of the higher grit stones as well, but didn't have oil on hand to further hone the blades. They are very sharp now and should become scary sharp once I use the additional stones.
The table I have it installed on doesn't have a lip on the bottom and I do worry it might slide off when rotating the knife. As such, I hold the base with one hand and rotate with the other. Can be a bit tricky with a chef's knife or larger, but isn't an issue with the smaller blades.
Overall, this puts an edge on the knives which is better than when they were new. Just sorry I wasted money on other kits, gadgets, etc prior to getting this.
Works wonderfully! Easier to use than the smaller sharpeners that I have. Very stable and very well built. Would definitely buy again if I needed another one!
Maybe instructions explaining the way to get the angel better. I have another sharpener so I was able to finally figure it out. Have the stones marked better, after a while you do have a problem with a couple of the stones. It took me a little while to get to where I was getting a good edge. Now I find it much easier to use. I find it is good on full size knives rather than pocket knives. But over all it does the trick.
Took a minute to fuss with the angle for sharpening. I had to adjust the angle between a chef's knife and a paring knife. The black marker on the edge is a handy trick to be sure you're getting the proper angle. Also took a while to go from 800 to 1500 to 2000, etc., grit and develop a rhythm to handle the stones. In the end I found this sharpener to be quite excellent. By the time I sharpened my 4th knife, I had learned how to maximize my efficiency. GREAT sharpener.
Works as it should and my knives are as sharp as they guarantee.
I really enjoy my knife sharpener works very well good quality workmanship and fast shipping I have told my friends about it hopefully they purchase one
It's everything it is advertised to do. Easy setup and simple to use. I have recommended it to several of my friends that are knife fanatics. I've used lansky in the past, but this tool is the bomb.
This item fulfills all the advertised capabilities admirably...
My treasured Miyabi knives are functioning at their optimum.
An excellent mechanism!
The Iki Ruixin Pro™ Sharpener is very easy to use and set up
and love the final result when sharpening.
Excellent Sharpener. Does what it should!
The tool it’s self and stone are great.
Now the storage of the tool and stones are beyond subpar. Especially for what was spent to obtain the tool and stones.
The extra stones came wrapped in bubble wrap.
ALL these stones should have a case that has a pocket for each stone.
Very disappointed in the total storage and safety
Consistant results of very sharp knives. Contacted for additional sharpening manual that is much better than what was included in the sharpener package.
Great customer service
Great sharpening kit. Easy to set up, use, and clean, now every knife in the house is razor sharp. I enjoy using it so much that I brought it to work and had my team bring in their personal knives for me to sharpen. A definite must-have for every household!!
With the video it was easy to setup and use. A little difficult for pocket knives but it is manageable. The diamond stones are a plus.
Really happy with the purchase, easy to assemble and after a bit of practice notice a signficant difference in the sharpness of my knives. I wasn't using them on our kitchen knives yet, but instead on my fishing knives and they came up a treat. I worked through the various grades of stone and finished them off with a steel. i now have sharp knives everywhere, and it was very therapeutic getting them there due tot he rhythmical nature of the set up.
Took awhile in the mail but was to Australia so makes sense. Good product, nice quality.
Overall the Wasabi sharpener lived up to expectations. It has produced commendable results.
It took some time to master the device, due primarily to a paucity of instructions for use; eg. Care and use of stones etc.
My knives are significantly sharper with the use of the Wasabi sharpener.
Works well,happy with the support and product.
Quick shipping and item arrived well packed with all instructions. Sharpener has been a dream to use, plenty of videos online to guide.
So much better than just a stone. Well made and very easy to use.
I was able to quickly set this unit up for sharpening larger carving/prep knives. Be sure to have as much blade exposed as possible while still ensuring a firm grip on the blade. If you set the knife too far into the clamp, you will not be able to touch the blade with the stones. I have a digital angle gage for setting up my table saw that I used to set the blade angle. I sharpened a U.S. made knife to the Japanese knife angle of 15º. It took a while with the course stone to get it to that angle but the final result was an edge that has lasted longer and cuts finer.
My one suggestion for improvement would be to make the ball joint out of Delrin (TM) to make lubrication unnecessary and improve the smoothness of operation.
Works well, even on knives I thought were not salvageable.
A little fussy to set up the first time but well worth the effort. Easy to use and knives are now as sharp ad they were out if the box, if not sharper.
Great sharpening system. Easy to maintain angle of your choice on blade. I added the finer grit set of three stones as well as the Diamond stones. You could sharpen a razor blade with these. I highly recommend this sharpening system if you want sharp knives.
I really enjoy using the sharpener it does well with keeping me on a specific angle. We went through the house and sharpened all the hunting knives and kitchen knives and it has been wonderful using them.
Never had a sharper knife after using this thing!
It's a learning curve for me because I se different way of sharpening knives, but solid good made product
Love it I wish I had gotten the diamond stones!
I had a problem with my original purchase, they fully replaced everything. Great customer service.
well made . The diamond hones are better / more durable. Fast shipping . Satisfied with product . Thanks

I love this devise, it keeps the perfect angle of sharpening every time. Easy to set up and operate. My knives have never been so sharp!
Great and easy to use sharpener. Only used a few times so far but seems to do a great job!!
I am very happy with the sharpening set up, it works really well. And, saves time and money having to take my knives in to a shop to be sharpened.
The device was easily assembled and easy to operate, so high marks there. I did have trouble following the instructions for setting up a sharpening angle, and I'm still not sure I have it right since the author of the instruction booklet changes terminology as the instructions progress. To compound the problem I can find nothing in the booklet that tells me what sharpening angle to use. Two suggestions: 1) improve the instruction manual; and 2) don't send inferior whetstones. I was dismayed that the 320 grit whetstone that came with the device disintegrated after about 20 strokes. The grit came off the plastic backing. Before using it, I wet it as instructed. The other three whetstones are fine. I am sending you a picture by e-mail of what's left of the 320 grit whetstone so you can make your quality control person aware of this defect. If you are interested, I can send you the stone in the photograph.
The sharpener is made pretty well but the stones that come with it are junk. The stones fall apart when you use them. I will be looking for some better stones in the future. I also so ordered the diamond stone set at the same time while they are better I would just use that money to purchase better stones.
A great sharpener! Well made, excellent fit and finish. But to get that super-sharp, paper shredding, wafer-thin tomato slicing results, you will need to buy additional stones with finer grit. The “stock” stones won’t get you there. Plus, there are very fragile - a drop from even a lot height broke one of mine. You should label the grit number on the back of them, as the markings wear off the front right away.
As an individual who lost his dominant arm 15 years ago, keeping my knives razor sharp has been a huge pain in the ass! Over use issues with my only hand has also caused major issues keeping my blades at the correct angle. I have nearly had a sharp edge and the next swipe, I have to start over again. Wasabi has made my sharpening life a dream!
