Anybody Use A "WARTHOG" Sharpener?

Does anyone here ever use a Warthog Sharpener? I saw some at the gun show last weekend for $95. Are they worth it? I'm in need of some serious knife sharpening tools.

I bought a Lansky system for one of my kids years ago but haven't been able to locate it among all the piles of junk around here.

All help is deeply appreciated.

No experience with a "warthog" sharpener. I use a work sharp after accumulating a bunch of sharpeners....this one gets traction with me!

They are “alright” as long as edges are similar angles, certainly not gonna be able to regrind one. And fat knives have issues.

For around same price. ken onion worksharp. Just practice on goodwill knives to ensure you don’t eat the tips.

If you’re ever on Northshore, I’m in Ponchatoula, I’ll show you how easy they are.
