Does the job
I picked one of these up in meanandgreens shop in wolves. i've used it to sharpen about 3 of my knives and so far so good, i can't see much wear on the sharpener itself so shoudl be able to sharpen more blades yet.
Pros: Pocket sized, Cheap, Does the job
Would recommend: Yes

First one i had developed grooves in the ceramic plates it was actually blunting the blades.
Mean and green replaced it cos it has a 1 years warrenty.
Second 1 didn't last long just using it on my leatherman.
Now in the Bin
Pros: Nice idea
Cons: Ceramic plates too soft
Would recommend: No

Had an old, neglected blade (which to be honest I have been using only as a toothpick) sharper than when it was new within seconds (must remember not to use it as a toothpick any more). Not sure how long the ceramic bars will last before wearing out but I doubt if I have enough knives to hand to worry it (my desk is inexplicably covered in knives). I should clarify I am not a serial killer incidentally. Ha, should I even need to clarify that? Itís just with saying my desk was covered in knackered knives it kind of sounded dodgy.
Anyway, decent piece of kit even if it does mean I will undoubtedly end up cutting my gums to ribbons when I forget that all of my formerly blunt blades are now sparkly and new.
Pros: Lightweight, Warm, Named 'Jack', Green, Comfortable
Cons: Will lead to me bleeding
Would recommend: Yes
