    I have the KO, I bought it because of the optional diamond belts to touch up the ceramic kitchen knives. (Wife manages to dull them too )
    I have no experience with the "standard" model

    I got mine off of amazon for $127.30 with free prime shipping

    edited to add: just looked and actually it's slightly cheaper now than when I bought mine back last October. the 127.30 is the current price

    Thanks for that, Paul.

    I've been loathe to go mechanized, but I'm rapidly tiring of dragging beat to crap $15 knives over $150 stones.

    No problem, my friend

    As CPJ has mentioned there IS a pretty steep learning curve. Cheap kitchen knives made good practice fodder for me. Only boogered up the tips on a couple before I got the hang of it

    FIFY,

    As I said, my wife routinely dulls CERAMIC knives. There ain't a steel that's ever been made into a blade she can't dull

    She once got mad at me because she was helping , now ex, daughter-in-law fix a holiday meal and wanted to use my benchmade 710 (Linefinder;s favorite) to slice vegetables ON A TILE COUNTER TOP and I told her HELL NO!!

    her: "But I need a sharp knife"

    me: then you ought to not dull every one you get

    her: why do you carry that knife if you're not going to use it?

    me: so I have it when I need to cut something

    her: but I need to cut something

    me: then you ought to start carrying a pocket knife

    Re: Forschner knife sharpening?

    I've got a diamond stone which gives a quick initial edge on a blade. Perfectly competent for most kitchen needs. I've also got a Japanese waterstone for sharpening plane blades and it's like 3000 grit and will finish off a kitchen blade so it's really sharp. After that, a crock stick will keep it sharp for a long time.

    I like sharp knives for cooking. I've got a good set, and while they're more difficult to sharpen, they hold the edge longer. Cheaper knives, like Old Hickory get very sharp but don't stay that way for a long time. However, they're easy to resharpen. And they're relatively inexpensive.

    Same one I fall under every time I go to the inlaws. However, I'm being told I can stay home more and more. My persistence has paid off.
