I’ve had a WorkSharp 3000 for several years but I use it very seldom. I prefer the scary sharp method also. My sandpaper goes to 2000 grit and I finish with a 6000 grit Japanese wet stone. I also use a honing guide.

It does not take very long to get a super sharp chisel or iron this way and the process is quite satisfying, even enjoyable.

I only use the WorkSharp when I want to change a bevel angle (which is quite seldom) now. It used to be my primary sharpening method, but I believe I get better results with my scary sharp method.
