Edge Pro Apex 4 Knife Sharpening System
The video provided give great examples of how to use the sharpening system, much better than just reading the literature. The fact that you can sharpen your largest knife is a real plus.

Best thing sense sliced bread!
I would like to start off by saying I'm impressed. Hands down the best sharpening system I've owned to date. This system is easy to use and with short time anyone (almost anyone) can become highly proficient at making a polished edge, hair popping, scalpel comparable scary sharp edge. I wanted this system for a while but was on the fence over the price. $200+ is quite an initial investment but well worth every penny once you've owned the EPA ( edge pro apex) for a short period of time. The quality of the edge you can apply to most if not any knife is well worth it. If your like my self, I truly love a HIGH quality tactical or edc folder in my pocket at all times. The catch to that is what's a $180 s30v blade steal tactical folder worth if its dull, Nothing! I own a moderate collection of nice, high end, hard use, custom and collectible knives, this system works to perfectly sharpen all of them. My biggest concerns or apprehensions before purchasing this unit was the base is constructed of plastic and stones I've used before clog and loose effectiveness rapidly. I'm happily surprised that the base is strong and quit steady, no problems or complaints there. The stones are also of great quality, as long as you are for them properly your golden. Just wash with warm water and dish soap and like new. Replacement parts are readily available and reasonably priced if you do end up with an issue. This kit (apex 4) comes well stocked with everything you need. The apex also comes with an instructional booklet and DVD witch is extremely helpful. I recommend watching it before getting started. All in all I would recommend this product to a person who's considering the purchase. I'm sure you'll appreciate the extended use you'll get out of your knives. # 1 tip!! Don't show your friends the results from this sharpener. You will have a pile of knives big and small on your table. Good luck and stay sharp my friends!!

Apex Edge Pro
The Apex Edge Pro is a solid, well built sharpening system. Despite having a plastic body the main unit does not flex, bend, or feel cheap in any way. The stones that come with this system are excellent. The 120 grit stone is very useful for re-profiling edges. Soaking the stones in warm water with a couple drops of dish soap mixed in aids in preventing the stones from loading up during sharpening. Running the stones wet with the included water bottle keeps them cutting smooth and sharp. Working up to 1000 grit and then lightly using the ceramic rod will easily pop hairs. Polishing the edge with the provided 3000 and 5000 grit polishing tapes will create a screaming sharp edge. The instructions included are also excellent. The one downfall of this system is that in order to sharpen short blades with an aggressive re-curve requires purchasing additional narrow stones. After re-profiling and sharpening my daily carry folder with a very hard s30v blade to 18 degrees per side I was able to achieve a level of sharpness which other systems, stones, and improvised methods could not. The edge is polished and insanely sharp and holds up excellently to daily use. This system, to me, is the perfect way for the project oriented consumer to sharpen their knives with repeatable results.
