I have one of those and its a fairly decent item.

200, 300, 400 and 600 grit.

I didn't like it to start with but after I broke it in it was fine

Got one of these from Aldi recently. It is excellent. Will pick up another this week.
Many thanks for bringing this up. I was kicking myself for not buying another at the time!

um, yeah, what that bloke said. normally i would recommend staying well away from cheap diamond sharpeners. they can be unevenly graded and put some big scoremarks on your blades. break them in with an old beater knife that you don't mind scratching up. when you've knocked all the big lumps off of the stone you can progress to normal knives. i got mine in B&Q too.

still wouldn't put any of my better knives on it, but it's good for reprofiling.

cheers, and.

will this be ok to sharpen up my mora???
It sharpened mine, its not pretty but its sharpened :)

Not got a lot of experience with knife sharpening so practising with a couple of Moras. I have also nearly got a decent edge on my machete with it, got to go down a couple of grits tomorrow, I was knackered after re-profiling it though.
