Pros: Big punch for a small piece and great value for money. Amazing sharpener with diamond edges is a simple must have for anybody who love their blades razor sharp but doesn't want to spend hundreds to have that. Sturdy, compact and comes with a practical pouch. Overall, a great product.

Cons: Some of the customers don't like the look of this piece. I personally am not a fan of the parts that have a plastic finish, but after using it for a while I have to say that this is not really a con because the plastic actually allows you a better grip.

My review resume of Smith’s PP1 Pocket Pal:

Smith's PP1 Sharpener in actionBefore I get into the quality rating, let me point out that this things costs the same as few latt├ęs. And to see people saying that it does the job of much more expensive home sharpeners, it makes it a no-brainer. I am a multitool collector and I’ve got one of these babies. I wouldn’t go as far as saying that is completely replacing my home expensive sharpener, but that’s not it’s purpose in the first place.

After seeing a diamond sharpener in a piece that is priced that low, my first thought was where was the profit margin of the company making it. I got it on a discounted price and that was even more unbelievable to me.

All this made me suspicious that it might be of poor quality and that it might be falsely advertised, but for that price it was worth the risk. I ordered it and was surprised at how well this thing is made. Sure, it has plastic parts in the finish, but is a budget solution that does exactly what it was meant to do. And for that price, I am not expecting titanium finish. That’s why I must be frank and even blatant here and admit that I was smiling while reading some of the negative reviews.

Overall, for that price, this little piece is a true steal and I am giving it 4.5 stars.

Simply because it does exactly what it’s meant for and does it well.
