"Good idea, badly executed. Dangerous to use."
A stone holder/sink bridge should hold the stone stable both on the counter and over the sink. This one doesn't do either.

It is difficult to adjust because two hands are required to tighten it. One must hold the screw with a screwdriver while turning the wing-nut with the other hand. A ""captive"" screw would easily solve this problem.

As a sink bridge it is unstable. It needs some non-slip rubber pads at the ends to help stabilize it. The ""two-hand"" problem described above makes it difficult to adjust it tightly enough against the walls of the sink.

As a stone holder used on the counter it is unstable if there is any moisture at all on the counter. It is difficult to avoid moisture on the counter, even when using a ceramic waterstone. A better non-slip solution, better rubber feet or a small non-slip mat, should be provided.

A box to store it in would also be nice.

I do love the concept and overall design of the product, but is not engineered for its intended use

Kramer Sink Bridge
I disagree with the other reviewer strongly. I use this all the time and it works perfectly. It's very easy to adjust and is very stable. I only use it over the sink. I wouldn't change anything.

"good product, ordered despite negative reviews"
I just spent three hours sharpening my knives with the bob kramer adjustable sink bridge. I can understand the complaint about the broken piece after two years of use (find a machinist to make a replacement piece out of plastic!), but do not be afraid to order this sink bridge for fear of it being difficult or dangerous to use. I have several waterstones that I purchased before Shun started selling their own, and I did not use them as much as I should have because I did not have a convenient way to hold them. This sink bridge solves a problem that I had been looking to fix for quite a while. There are other methods for holding waterstones, but this is the most convenient (and most affordable) I have found so far. If either screw becomes loose you can always retighten it and use a small shim of rubber or even a wet paper towel to take up any empty space between the bridge and the sink or the waterstone and the bridge. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a convenient way to hold their waterstone during sharpening

"Works, but not perfect"
I have two of these which I use a lot in two different locations. The bridge feature works fine over the sink, but this is not a perfectly engineered product, and the moveable adjustment piece of bamboo on one of mine just broke after about 2 years. I'm going to figure out a way to replace that little part, but if I can't, I think I still got my money's worth. I'll probably do some more research and try to find that perfect sink bridge next time, but, all in all, I'm a big fan of Kramer products
