If you have very simple blade geometry this can be a very nice no-nonsense sharpneing kit for the cash involved. It's uncomplicated enough a novice blade sharpener can produce good results on most types of steel.
Where this blade sharpening kit seems to have some issues with is the blades that have some or lots of variability in the curvature or grind of the blade from grip to tip.
Some guessing is still needed to ensure that sharpening angles are accurate.
Overall, for modestly sized knives it's a good value and very compact.
