It definitely feels cheap when you get it, and maybe like you could break the thing with your big heavy axe one first use. I purchased this sharpener mainly for the fiskars axe and hatchet that I currently own – because, well – fiskars axe, fiskars sharpener. Must work well together, right? Made perfect sense. My axe was quite dull after a year’s worth of use without sharpening. Honestly after the first session with this thing, I didn’t think that my fingers would be in any danger if touching the blade to check for sharpness. I was wrong, as you can see from the photo. I can say with confidence, at least for fiskars axes and hatchets, that this sharpener definitely works. My tools are sharper than when I bought them, and back to cutting through wood like butter, and umm… my skin like water?

Holy crapsicle! (That’s a frozen turd on a stick). And that is exactly what you might think you bought when you remove this janky, Chinese-made piece of plastic from the box. It feels like a $2 item at best. Or maybe a child’s toy. Or… Idk. I’ve purchased tools that came in packaging less flimsy than this. All that being said, the little ceramic wheels contained within are amazing! Why four stars? I have no choice! While I wouldn’t want to accidentally sit on the darn thing for fear of breaking it, I have to respect it’s capability! I took my mildly dull axe and ran it back and forth on the wheels five or six times using only the weight of the axe for force. I then checked the blade and was amazed at how sharp it was. I promptly repeated this five-second process and checked again. Holy…! Being fully astonished I checked the blade against my arm hair. It shaves! Sharp! Very sharp! Not razor sharp. More like quality, American-made pocket knife with a factory edge sharp! Significantly more sharp than an axe needs to be, but I’m not complaining. Plasticky as it is. I see no reason it won’t last, as long as it isn’t treated like tools on a jobsite. Wet stones, diamond hones and files be damned! This thing has your angle and edge without effort. I recommend getting one if you are a lazy sharpener like I am!
I got a good sharp edge on the axe

I thought this was very flimsy and I could barely get the Fiskars X27 splitting axe head to roll through the sharpening wheel. Then I used some silicon lubricant spray to help clean resins off the axe head and used the sharpener afterward. With the added lubricant, the axe head rolled through the sharpening wheel with ease in both directions. I got a good sharp edge on the axe. My recommendation: place a small amount of lubricant on the axe head and this tool works well.
This thing works great, my fiskar axe got some dings in it …

This thing works great, my fiskar axe got some dings in it from a long session of whacking away at a tree, but ran it through this thing for about a minute and is sharp enough to shave with. One thing i will note though, it says its a axe sharpener, but i have 2 other axes (older ones) that are too wide to work with it, so keep that in mind if you are buying this by itself for any of your outdoor tools, if its kind of thick it may not work -_-.
Very nice little sharpener

I purchased this sharpener with my Fiskars Log splitter. The maul was a little dull when I first got it. I ran it thru this sharpener 4 or 5 times and it was very sharp! would cut paper. This is a must have for anyone with an axe to grind!
Good product, but don’t expect magic…

This is a fiskars product, so I gave it more credit than maybe I should have. I have bought other fiskar sharpeners in the past and they worked great. However, you can take several hours trying to sharpen your axe or large knives. It has two course wheels that look really aggressive and should eat metal away. This isn’t the case. After 20 minutes of going at it, you started to notice a change. After another 20, you were about happy with it. Maybe if the blades were already sharp this wouldn’t be such a problem. By the time I was done sharpening, I was to tired to split the wood. When I did get to the wood axe worked great with no issues at all.
