KnifeMasters - The World's Best Sharpener?

The Tuna Valley Cutlery Company was an old Pennsylvania brand that was resurrected by Perry Miller in 2007. Perry had several patterns produced by GEC under this name in the later 2000s. In 2012, Daniels Family Knives purchased the Tuna Valley Cutlery name & working stock. Production has since resumed under the direction of Ken Daniels (co-founder of Great Eastern Cutlery) and his son Ryan Daniels.

KnifeMasters - The World's Best Sharpener?

Postby bestgear » Thu Dec 17, 2015 3:24 pm

Does anyone have any experience with this outfit:

For $200 you get a 3400 RPM belt sander, 80, 600, 800, & 1,000 grit belts, a leather stropping belt, stropping compound, a diamond serration file, safety glasses and on-line instructional videos.

Is this a good deal? I don't see any brand name on the sander. They also offer a business opportunity for those who are looking for a part-time or full-time income which "gives you everything you need to start a successful home-based business".

Any thoughts?

The machine looks an awful lot like the $30 chicom machine I bought at Harbor Freight a couple years ago. I bet it's the same thing. Belts can be bought cheap from jantz.

It looks like someone has packages easy to source parts and is charging you a premium for the packaging.

I do use mine a lot to set bevels/fix chips or bad sharpening jobs. I'd rather have a bit nicer smoother running machine, but these are cheap, and disposable.
