Hook-eye knife grinder

Hello I'm new to this, just inharated a 1.5x24 Hook-Eye knife grinder, couldn't find any info with my search. Has anybody used one of these for knife making? I need something portable so I hope somebody has done experience with this, thanks for your time

It might work for small items, but it is basically a knife sharpener not a grinder. It was designed to dress and maintain an already existing edge on a blade and not for grinding a blade out of bar stock. Need to look at machines that are designed for knifemakers if you plan to grind blades from scratch.
