I guess you pay for the convienence of it. Just like buying a $20 steak at a restaurant.
I'm still deciding if it's worth $80 for the setup. I could probably use my old iron at home, get most of the items from the hardware store and buy the edge tuner, ptex, stone and wax at REI or something. I would probably a little money. I would probably spend a little less, but get more wax and ptex for the money.
It turns out I'll just need the edge tuner, wax scraper, ptex, stone and wax since I have everything else in my garage. BTW, Zumiez.com is having a sale on their Alibi edge tuners and wax scrapers, $4 each.
