    Hello, I bought this Spevorix cleaver:



    It is everything as stated in the description, great chopper. What I need now is a good sharpener which will work specifically with this type of cleaver or steel. I have arthritic hands so manual sharpening is very difficult for me there I am seeking a sharpening tool like this below but something under $100 if possible. If not for that price then would this sharpener work for this spevorix cleaver or any other referrals please? Thanks

    Those pull throughs rip off metal instead of making a clean edge. If you're not using stones, get a belt system like the work sharp. It's $50 on amazon

    Thanks, at 70% 5 star reviews and pricing looks like something for me. My main concern with this and any sharpener will be if myself will need to have knife sharpening skills:
    "the fixed sharpening guide & flexible abrasive belt create a precision cutting edge every time"

    I am wondering if the fixed sharpening guide it's referring to means I will not need to have knife sharpening skills?
