👤I have had a similar one for 25 years. If you understand what you're getting, this is a great device. Chef's Choice is a product that corporate marketing departments hype. If you're foolish enough to think that this device will give you a better edge than a professional, then shame on you. This is the solution if you are looking for something that will give you an edge in under a minute. I was able to cut a turkey drumstick from the carcass with ease after sharpening my carving knife. Our hunting knives are the same. I've had sharper edges, but not as easily as this. To get a great edge, you must read the directions thoroughly and follow them exactly. You won't get a good edge if you pull through too quickly or don't use the right pressure. This is true when checking for the burr after stage 2. I'm hoping I get another 25 years of use out of this device.
👤I can't believe how good this sharpener is. I've always used a whetstone or the Spyderco sharpening system, so I never considered an electric sharpener. I was ready for technology and mechanization because I had 20 knives. Once you understand how it works, you can use it. I use it to touch-up the edge of a knife before I use it. I would have to spend a long time sharpening a knife to get the edge. The instructions say you can use the fine grinder tosharpen a knife. The serrations will only be sharpened by this sharpener. I don't recommend this as there are better ways to sharpen a knife. The back of the counter is where my Chef's Choice sharpener sits so it's easy to grab a knife and start using it. I wish I had purchased this one years ago. I recommend it to people who want to keep their knives sharp.
👤After paying fifteen dollars for each knife sharpening, I finally found a product that is really great. The second and third stage are what you need. The first stage is for dull knives. This was bought to make the carving knife sharper for Thanksgiving. We ended up sharpening our knives after working great. It worked well after being taken out for Christmas to be sharper for Prime Rib roast. The machine will pay for itself in a short period of time. It's no longer necessary to send out the knives or drive to wait for a person to sharpen them. Would definitely recommend.
👤We bought it for a restaurant. We have knives in different price ranges in our kitchen. We tried it on a knife that was over a thousand dollars. Had to return it. Maybe more for a home use.
👤This is the knife that you want. Don't buy knives that are serrated edge. If you follow the directions, you can shave with this knife's sharp edge. This is everything you need to prepare your everyday paring knife or your favorite sushi knife. It doesn't take long to breakeven on the purchase price if you have knives sharpened professionally at $18 each.

👤There is a significant gap between the positive and negative reviews of this knife sharpener. This thing is a piece of junk. The truth is, it's 100% both. The device seems to work miracles and will give you an edge on the dullest knife you own. It will shave the edge of a knife into the fixed taper, and compared to the dull piece of shit edge your knife used to have that will seem amazing. If you own cheap knives and don't want to invest time or energy in properly sharpening them, this thing is amazing. When your cheap knives get dull, resharpen them with this thing, and when they get ruined, just throw them out. This is a perfect product for that person. It's better to have a dull knife than a sharp one, so just sharpen it away until it's too damaged to keep fighting. The other crowd says this thing is a piece of junk. Those people are correct. This will use a dull knife and put an edge on it. It won't put an edge on it. It's too aggressive. If you drag a knife through this thing, you will do more harm than good. If you have nice knives, you must either learn how to sharpen them yourself or just send them out to be done. There's no shame in not having a pro do the work. You have it. You don't care about preserving the knife or long-term quality of the cheap knives? Use this. It does work. Do you have good knives? Don't use it. It will ruin a good blade and make you regret your investment.
👤I knew what to expect. I expected it to be cheap and done quickly. I didn't expect the sharpness I get with my KME Sharpening system. If you're in need of your cheap kitchen knives and pocket blades to be sharp again but don't care about how much metal you're taking off with each pass, then you're in the right place. Don't be specific with what angle your blades are set at. The AccuSharp sharpener is a great way to get er done. It is quick, simple, and easy. If you keep a consistant angle, you can. I would suggest you put the sharpener on the back of the hard surface and run the blade at a 90 degree angle across it, since you are guaranteed to wobble. You will have a dull end product if you wobble. I would recommend holding it. When you have your blue shield, pay attention to the illustration on it. I took a dull butterknife steak knife with just 2 passes of medium pressure and it was sharp enough to not rip cardboard. 40 passes later, it cut cardboard cleanly. The last 5 strokes of the last 25 passes are lighter, and it cuts about 60 percent as nicely and smoothly as my knives are sharpened with the KME system. And in a short time. We're talking a few minutes versus hours of work. You can't beat the AccuSharp. If you feel that this review helped you make an informed decision, please click theHelpful button.

👤A knife collector has used several sharpening systems over the years. The lansky and the wicked edge are included. I've used the Edge Pro as well. I've spent about 2 hours with the system on 2 different blades. As I gain more experience with the system, I will update this initial thoughts. Can you get a knife sharp with this system out of the box? Answer is mostly. It depends on what you mean by "sharp". A knife cutting printer paper is the minimum that I want. It's possible that dull knives do that as well. If you are someone who has no idea about knife sharpening, you would be happy with this system. Maybe you like to have your hunting knife cleaned before the season starts. My level of sharpness is at a high standard, having used the most superior system on the market. I didn't get the sharpness I wanted out of this system in 2 hours. I tried different angles and different steels. The edge was given a decent edge by hand stropping the knife. The edge of the paper is dull. There is a flat on the edge. I made sure the knives were clean. The question is, why is this happening? It is a bit cold. I didn't use an angle finder. The Wicked Edge is a better system, but I never used one. I winged it and used it as intended and I think there is a repeatability issue that is causing knives to be dull. I'm not sure how many people use their phones or an average sized angle finder. On one side of the clamp, it is not flat. Unless you have a small angle finder, it's not possible to accurately measure a small blade. A cell phone won't work. Period. It won't sit on the surface of the clamp. A phone is too large if it is only one side. The lack of repeatability wasn't really expressed on the edge, other than it being "dull". The edge width was constant. The edges looked the same width. I'm not sure what's going on, but if I can't get a knife razor sharp, something is up. The system seems to be geared towards fixed blades. It is. It will work for folders, but it will cause problems. The clamp is not designed for small folders. You can get clearance to work if you use the corner of the blade as a guide. This isn't a problem. It's fine, but could be smaller. The stones don't really do anything. They're fine. They get the job done. They struggle a bit for good knife steels. They can abraid and dust easily. They're also brittle. I broke the 120 grit when I put it into the system. It seems like a 1000 grit. It feels coarse. It's obvious that you won't be getting a mirror finish on this system, but it's worth noting. 99% of the time, mirror finishes are worse than a toothy edge. If you're new to the scene of sharpening, here are some basic tips to help you out. Light to modest pressure is what these are used for. No need to use high pressure. Going back and fourth is acceptable. Don't do circles, they just produce an awkward finish. A lubricant is used. The water can be used to keep the stones from getting stuck. That is one of the main points of using a lubricant. When a stone gets stuck, it's useless. You should clean the stones with a rag as you sharpen them. A better edge will produce more stone life. The downside to using a lubricant is that it can get into blade pivots. It is important that you know this. A knife will never be sharp if it isn't sharp in the profile stage. You should re-profiling the edge to meet the new angle you are honing at. All material should be cleaned up. From start to finish. Use a marker. The blade of a knife will never be sharp if it does not feel sharp during this stage. The edges from the Wicked Edge system were very toothy and coarse. I knew the system was malfunctioning. I spent most of the time with this system trying to get a sharp edge, but I didn't get there. I moved on to the rest of the stones and the result was the same: dull with a fine edge. Thats how she does it. I don't regret the purchase. A good starter system. The system is versatile and you can use any stone. Guys were using files with them. I want to get better stones and a small angle finder to try and sort out this issue. I considered trying to flip the blade instead of index it. I want to see if I have better results. Will update as soon as possible.

👤I think it's important to note that this stone is a standard item that is sold by a different company and branded with "sharp pebble" branding. If you know the right thing to look for on Amazon, you will find at least 20 more listings that are exactly the same product for a variety of prices, nearly all of them less than this one, which has a higher price. If you're interested in this stone, it's probably a better idea to get the exact same thing for less. I would recommend getting one that comes with the angle guide, which we will discuss later in the review. This is a really good sharpening stone. The angle guide is a game-changing accessory, it makes it easy to keep the angle consistent, and is the most difficult part of sharpening knives. I gave my mom one of these because she had neversharpened a knife before. She was up and running after spending about 5 minutes with it. She had neversharpened a knife before, so her knives were so dull that you couldn't hurt yourself if you tried. They can't cut through a tomato's skin even after sawing back and forth, because you have to pierce it with the point first. The difference was clear to everyone when we worked one of these completely dull knives with this stone for 45 minutes, and it took longer than that to get a knife from 100% dull to razor sharp. It was once again a knife that could cut vegetables. If you're not familiar with knife sharpening, this is a great introduction because of the angle guide and whetstones are more effective than stand sharpeners. You do if you're on the fence about sharpening your knives. If you get one of these, it will make cooking much easier and safer, since the chances of a knife slipping off something you're trying to cut and into your fingers is much lower when the knife is sharp enough that it bites instead of slipping. The package does not include instructions on how to use the angle guide, so I will add them here. The angle guide should be used to slide the knife's tip into the end, so that the tip protrudes from the other end. If you look at the guide from the side, you will see that the knife can rest against the top or bottom of the guide. It would be best to keep it resting against the bottom. The only way you can mess up is not holding the angle consistently, so make sure to keep an eye on this. As you hold the handle, make sure you put enough pressure on it to keep the knife in a straight line. Go for it, moving the knife back and forth across the stone. You can watch whetstone on the internet. One more thing. The knife and the stone are getting rid of their surfaces as you sharpen them. The surface of your whetstone will change over time from being flat to being even. It's important that your whetstone surface is flat in order to properly sharpen your knife. If you want to keep your knives sharp, you will need a flattening stone. If you want to experiment with flattening stones, go for the diamond plate, it has been shown that it will yield the best results, however, there are other options that cost less and have good reviews. There is another listing that sells the same stone for less than the price of this item.
You can simply draw your knife through the AnySharp sharpener. Sharpens a wide variety of knives. Serrated blade sharpener is fixed angle. Can be used to keep the edge of knives that are already sharp. The easy adjust knob allows sharpening at a wide range of angles. Replacement abrasive components, soft grip handle, and rubber feet.

👤I bought this knife sharpener for my son as a Christmas present a few years ago and recently used it on my utensils. I let my knives lose a bit of their edge because I was a little lazy. I borrowed my son's sharpener because I didn't feel like getting out my stones and oil to do a proper job. It works great, but it feels like a cheat as it is a fraction of what I spent on stones. I need to buy one for myself, so I looked around to see if there was anything better, but I could not see anything that looked better. I need this one to be adjusted. The knife edge chatters as the blade is pulled across, which is a common theme in the 1 star ratings. If you don't use it correctly, it can. If your blade is dull, you will need to pull with a very light, steady, and quick motion. You don't have to push down hard as you pull. Even pressure. Don't be a brute! Finesse is what is needed. I will buy another one for you.
👤Clever idea, but poorly made. Too much play in the adjustment mechanism causes the two stones to move around as the knife blade passes through, so you're never really getting a consistent edge on the blade. After a month, pieces started falling off.
👤I use this on my benchmade. You can draw a line across the full length of your blade with a sharpie and then use just the weight of the knife to make a few passes. If you want to find your angle, you can adjust it until the ink on the blade is gone. You can make 10 on each stone once you find it. Make sure the spine of your knife is straight and don't drag it or it will be unbalanced. This tool is great for sharpening knives that already have an edge. If you need a tool for the right job, look somewhere else. If you press on our blade too hard, you will ruin it.
👤The idea of three sharpeners adjusting to different angles on the blades made me happy. The reality is that when you drag your knife through the sharpener, the little blades pop out. They will no longer be in place once this happens. This happened to two different units. I sent the first one back. I threw the second one away. This sharpener is junk and I recommend you not to use it.
👤I love the idea that you can easily sharpen your knives with one device. They thought it would be ok to do only 2 degree intervals with a limited range, and completely miss the point. Most of my knives are 15, with some of them being 25. I have the same options as before, I can either break out the whetstone or buy a single-angle sharpener for each angle. It was not useless, but frustratingly shy of what it should have been.
The whetstone 1000/6000 sharpener kit is very durable. It can sharpen any blade, be it a chef knife, steak knife, sontoku knife, paring knife, sushi knife, cleaver knife, kitchen knives, Japanese knife, butcher knife, paring knife, BBQ knife, Hunting Knife, Pocket Knife, and so on. This is a simple yet unparalleled tool that can be used as a men's gift. works with all blades and axes.
👤This thing is amazing. Many of my employees don't know how to use a knife, and there are several knives that don't go to the sharpener every week. No matter what I do, they destroy the edges. I bought this puck to hold us over until knife sharpening day, as I hate using dull knives and I have to cut sometimes. I decided to test it on a butter knife. The result was impressive. There was nothing in the paper after a couple minutes. It was like butter. It was wonderful. BUY THIS PUCK. You won't regret it.
👤It was too coarse even on the "fine" side. It would be helpful to have an actual size in the description. If you need a "field stone" to do some serious shaping on an edge or to take a nick out, it will take a lot of time, but that's a job for home. This won't make a difference on your axe. If you want the kind of edge you want, this should work. It seems to be made as well as any decent manufactured stone I have. It's nostalgic, but it's not enough for the kind of work I'd do to an axe. If you want to finish your edge after using this, leave it on the bench and have a few fine grits.
👤I had this for 5 minutes. It makes a very packable trail clearing tool kit with my Estwing axe. I have been using my axe to break the trail. I am chopping a lot of trees down near the ground, and the dirt strikes and rock strikes wreak havoc on my edge. I stop to take a rest break and pull out a puck to make my axe edge look better. Works well. A sharp axe. The amount of strikes is reduced to chop down downed trees. Look at my photos. There are big wood chips with every swing of this small axe. The fine side brings the edge right back after a few passes. The coarse side is not coarse enough to remove the chips from the axe edge. Still need a file or disk to remove those. I use spit to wet the stone on the trail, and it works well to move away from the fine grindings to keep the stone clean. Use what works for you. I use oil at home, but it's for trail use. The little puck is great. Simple, cheap and effective.
👤This is a good stone. I like the dual grits because they don't need the same kind of edge or start from the same degree of dullness. You can use it wet or dry. My father taught me that water works best with a coarse stone, and I just verified what he told me over the years. It will not last as long if you dry it. Do you prefer honing oil or water? This stone is called a medium grit, but it is not as smooth and hard as an Arkansas stone or something of that nature. If you use oil on this stone, it will cause a problem with the pores and affect how well it does its job. The water does just as well or better than the other way around. The stone can stay clean if it washes out. I have not found that being messy to be a problem. A small amount of oil or water is all you need. Just enough to cover the surface of the stone is all that is needed when it rains or soaks in. It's not complicated. Get rid of metal particles that will collect after each use to keep the surface fresh.

Sharpal headquarters in CA, US with overseas branches in Germany and Australia aim to provide consumers with an easy and cost-effective way to obtain a sharp edge. It was manufactured and field-tested to the highest standards.
👤I know what I'm talking about and I'm not just expressing my opinion as a "knife guy", I sell and work on knives for a living. I picked this up because I have tried many pull throughs, including the most popular one on Amazon. If you can believe it, this little guy is better than either Lansky or Smith's current basic offerings. I shaved my inner left arm after I used it to sharpen a filter. It only took about 5 minutes, and it looks like it will be set at a 20 angle on both coarse and fine options. I haven't tried using the ferro rod combo, so I can't say for sure. The whistle works well, my beagle agrees. If you're looking for a good pull through that won't chew up your blade, I would recommend it. Good value for money too.
👤I've been a subscriber to the fixed angle sharpeners for a long time. I gave stones an honest shot, without oil, with water, different angles, and different strokes. I tried everything. It took forever and never left me with the sharpness I wanted. For me, the carbides are just plain work, not refined enough for some, but a brute force tactic. I'm ready to go after I get a sharp blade. They can easily oversharpen and take off too much metal if you want to make a blade that's not dull yet. The secondary fine edge sharpener built into this one will solve the problem. This one has a rounded diamond sharpener. The whistle and firestarter are just icing on the cake. The tool has a lot of functions. I was a bit skeptical but I'm glad I got it. I ordered their Multipurpose Sharpening tool on Amazon, which is high quality and has a fine honing edge that is made of carbide as well, which should be great for sharpening levels in between the ceramic and the rough carbide. The only negative I can think of is that it doesn't have rubber strips or feet to hold it on a flat surface while sharpening, but I never did that with my carbide sharpeners in the past. I held the knife in one hand and the sharpener in the other. The edge of this one is not flat, so you can still set it down.
👤The sharpener was well below my expectations, based on all of the glowing reviews. I tried it on multiple knives and it was dull. I tried different methods after that didn't work, and didn't get any better results. Hard pressure seemed to make no difference. I tried a different angle out of frustration, but it didn't make a difference. I spent over 30 minutes on one knife pulling it through and it did nothing but tear up my knife blade. I have had better luck with knives on the bottom of a mug. You can use the mug for two things, unlike this item. The firestarter is easy to get stuck in the holding slot if you push it in all the way. It is very difficult to get back out. The whistle was the only thing that worked. This item was beyond disappointing and I usually don't leave 1 star reviews. It felt like a rip off.

👤I use a wet stone to keep myself sharp, I'm an experienced chef. The electric sharpener is less messy and quicker. There is a Pull the knives slowly towards you, ending with the tip like you are slicing a pound cake. Light, slow and even. The quality is great and the price is right.
👤This is a professional sharpener. I was surprised by how heavy it was. While sharpening the knife, it stayed put. I used to have every knife in my kitchen sharpener. The housing for the sharpener is not cheap. The metal is collected in a compartment. I am happy with this product.
👤I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but the grinder inside seems to be off compared to the grooves on the device. I don't feel like I'm doing much grinding or that the motor would stall, so the instructions could be simpler. I've tried many different knives and made sure to run them through the recommended amount of times. I don't think the sharpener is doing a good job. I'd love to try another unit, but I'm probably the exception.
👤The first run felt a bit grabby, until you found the right angle and pressure to drag the blade. I might not be able to sketch it to run my Henckels through it, but it did a great job on my workhorse chefs knives. The magnetic shaving collector looks great on the counter with my other appliances and is sturdy enough to stay put when used. Will this replace a professional knife sharpening? This is as good as it gets for the average consumer.
👤I decided on this one because it was made in Austria and I felt it would give me more quality than a brand made in China. It is made in a number of ways but lacks power. It stalls out when it's under a load. If you want to do a number of knives in a row, it is not appropriate for light sharpening. You have to wait for the motor to cool down before you can resume using it after only sharpening a few knives, because there is a thermal override that turns the motor off to prevent overheating. I only recommend this sharpener for those who only want to do 3 or 4 knives at a time. I wish I had bought a heavier duty sharpener. I have used a sharpening stone by hand before, but this is the first electric one I own. I will have to train myself to only use a few knives at a time, because I will try to use this for awhile longer. The angle on each knife was better established in the second sharpening than it was in the first. The motor heats up way to fast, and the motor override is a pain.
👤I bought this to make my kitchen knives sharper. I tried sharpening them with a hand sharpener, but they were still dull. It would be worth a try if you paid the price. It's a little noisy when you power it up. It's personality. If your car sounded like this, you'd take it to the shop. It was sharpening the knives that were pulled through it. Keeping the blade at the same angle each time is the secret to sharpening. It will not hold an edge like that. Even though the unit has a proper angle, it takes some concentration to keep the blade against the side. I'm sure practice will make perfect. The more expensive units are set up to keep the knife blade against the side to make sure the angle is right. Don't think you pull the knife through and done. It will be perfect if you practice and wait. I tried it out and it got a little warm but never shut down on me. It's a keeper.

👤I was on the fence. I have a Lansky system, stones, and hones. I will still do it by hand when I need to. I have a large collection of tools. It is a chore to keep them sharp. The Work Sharp shines there. firewood is burned for 5 months a year. I split most by hand. This thing is great for axes. The axe is the most time consuming part. I will be clearing some of my hunting trails, a few passes on this and my machete ready to go as spring arrives. I wanted to re-profile a few of my knives. It took me less than 20 minutes to work through the various grits. I took my time and could have done it quicker. The re-profiled blade looks like a factory edge. If I took a few knives to my local shop, it would have cost me a lot more. I go to my shed now. If you are a woodsman, hunter, fisher, camper, then you are a DIYer. I would highly recommend this tool. It is very high quality. The system runs smoothly. I will be buying other work sharp products.
👤I've researched knife sharpening. I used to use a cheapo harbor freight 1x30 belt sander with angle attachment. It wasn't good. I sunk about $100 into the whole thing and now I'm afraid to throw it away. I am in love with the worksharp I just tried. The worksharp beats the wicked edge in terms of cost, labor intensity and speed. In terms of cost, setup, and speed, worksharp beats the tormek. Worksharp beats lansky/rod style systems in terms of labor intensity and speed. Oh. I haven't tried the scissor sharpening feature. I might get a maul in the future, if this thing can do the things that my kitchen knives can. I'm going to marry it. Buy a ring and propose to someone. The worksharp will get you a smooth and sharp edge in under 60 seconds, and it takes less than a minute to change belts. You only need 2 strokes on each side on the medium belt, and 5 on each side with the fine belt to achieve a working edge. The edge is sharp and I have to ease off because I notice I'm slicing into my plastic cutting board. Kitchen prep was twice as fast and half as hard as it was today. I don't need a mirror. I don't need a lot of diamond honing. I need a sharp knife almost every day in the kitchen, and I need a cheap way to maintain it. The worksharp is what it is. I'm in love. I'm going to leave bad reviews on other sharpening systems and leave good reviews for the worksharp. I'm a fanboi of WS.
👤This is the best knife sharpener I have ever owned. I've used wet stones, rods, and the like. This setup is perfect. I carry a razor sharp enough to shave. My tomahawk is sharp enough to cut paper cleanly. I've used it on everything from hunting knives to kitchen knives. I haven't had to replace a belt yet. My son's souvenir knife needed sharpening, and it put a great edge on it. I would probably be careful with cheap blades. A lot of metal will be lost. I sharpened a butter knife. There are 3 different bands. The edge profile is developed by heavy grinding. The red is medium for cutting. For honing, the grey is fine. If you want to shave, you may want to get a leather strop. I used my filet knife to slice through fish like a hot wire through butter. There is no need for $300 knife sharpeners. Get this one. There was a novelty hunting knife. The metal is bad and dull. It took just 5 minutes for the razor to be sharp. I am telling my friends to bring their knives because I have fun with it.
There is safety. The handle on your sharpening tool will not hurt your hand when you push the stone back and forth tosharp your knife. There is attention! Measure APP can be downloaded if your phone doesn't have a tool to set the angle. A sharp edge in seconds. It is important to quickly and safely sharpen your blades. Safety is secure. The handle protects fingers and the bottom is non-slip. Coarse and fine for both western and Asian-style blades are used. The sharpness of the blade will be restored if you pull through. It is not dishwasher safe to clean with a damp cloth.
👤The title and misrepresentation of the item made me give this item a low rating. This is not a four stage knife sharpener, it is a two stage one for Western and Asian knives, where both sides of the knife edge are sharpened. When it arrived, we opened it and realized it wasn't what it was advertised to be, so we never tried it out. If you have both style knives in your kitchen, this might be a decent option but, as advertised, it is a bit misleading.
👤I don't like sharpening knives. I like a sharp knife in the kitchen, it's nothing worse than trying to cut veggies or meat, and the knife requires too much elbow grease to cut. I've always been skeptical of these types of sharpeners, preferring a sharpening rod or stone system, but after using them on my kitchen knives, I'm sold. I would recommend this to anyone who cares about sharp knives, but hates the time it takes to use a rod or stone.
👤ZWILLING J.A. is a good quality product. I was looking for another ZWILLING J.A. knife sharpener. The manufacturer discontinued it. I need to switch to this one. It looks like it has a lot of plastic parts, which made me very concerned about its longevity. When I opened the package, I was surprised that it was much heavier than I thought. ZWILLING J.A. is always very reliable. It is easy to use and matches my knife perfectly. I use the Asian side of the kitchen knife. The blade is very sharp after pulling back and forth. Five stars for sure.
👤Have a set of knives but have neversharpened them. The tool did the trick. I don't want to be like some people who write bad reviews and think an at home tool designed for the novice will provide the same results as taking knives to a professional to have them sharpened. That is unfair to the manufacturers of this product who worked hard to make a sharpener that does a good job at sharpening knives and is safe for the home consumers. This is a great tool that I used tosharpen my Henckels and didn't cut my fingers off.
👤I can't get this thing to sharpen my knife. I tried to sharpen my Cutco chefs knife and my dalstrong chefs knife, but they don't do anything for them. I bought a whetstone.
👤We bought a Henckels single-stage sharpener after purchasing our knife set from Macy's. Did well. I bought this one because I wanted to sharpen a few of my Japanese knives. The set for the Standard blades and the sharpener we purchased was not as good as this one. I was so happy to go with this. It is more sturdy than the single-stage sharpener we had, and it sticks to the countertop a lot better.
👤I was very excited to get this in the mail because I needed to get my J.A. Henckels knife ready for sharpening. The instructions are very easy to understand and follow. I could shave my face with the knife because this sharpener took just a few moments to transform a dull blade into a scary-sharp razor. I had a chip break off of the coarse sharpening stone while I was sharpening the 7" santoku for the first time. The sharpener was at risk of dulling the next knife to be sharpened on it due to no longer having a consistent flat surface on the stone because I did not use excessive pressure while sharpening. It's true that nothing lasts forever and that sharpening stones do eventually wear out, but it's not very economical to put out so quickly. The style of sharpener makes it difficult to get the last inch of the knife sharp because you have to apply moderate pressure to make the knife move and then use the v-shape sharpening stones to make the knife move. If you want to prevent this from happening, you have to stop applying pressure to the knife at the end of the blade. I will be exchanging this in hopes that the chip that broke off the first time was due to a manufacturer defect.
Replacement abrasive components, soft grip handle, and rubber feet. Give your knife a few proper pulls at each slot in one direction and it will come out sharper. Most people will find the simple, foolproof sharpener to be satisfactory. That means you will always have knives that are sharp, safe, effective, and enjoyable. The Amesser Kitchen Sharpener has diamond, tungsten steel, and ceramic rods for fixing, coarse sharpening, and honing. The device eliminates the need for several stones and honing rods in the kitchen, saving space. Whether you are right or left-handed, the handle and mat offered a secure, stable, confidence-inspiring grip. They are providing a glove that is cut-resistant for added safety. The handle is made from solid plastic and is designed to last a lifetime. Kitchen knives are made with high quality materials. Amesser knife sharpener is packaged in a well-wrapped box to make sure it is undamaged.
👤The sharpener works well. I have had professional knives for years, but neversharpened them. I thought they would stay sharper over time, but realized they were not cutting anything without serious effort. It was dull. That's right. You slide the knife through the first, second and third slots. I went back to front to try and get a consistent light pressure so that I wouldn't grind the blade. My dull knives are now cutting through meat and vegetables. Why didn't I buy this 10 years ago? It's so easy. It was so satisfying. Someone probably tried to sharpen a cheap ceramic knife or something like that, and the comments about this cutter ruining somebody's knife is probably related to that. The knives don't chip. This is not as good a proof of a system as it gets. Don't put it off. You need this.
👤I have been using a cheap sharpener. The sharpener does not work anymore. The thin blades wear out fast in those slots. I bought this one to try it out. The first and third slots use rods at an angle while the second uses steel blades. Initially, it works well. It should last longer than the previous one. If it wears out fast, will update.
👤The knife set is in need of a good knife sharpener.
👤I wish I had chosen something different. The 1, 2, and 3 slots are difficult to understand and you have to refer back to directions if you haven't used them in a while. Taking a decent knife and running in order will leave you with a poor knife. If it's in bad shape, you do 1, then 3, or 2, then 3. I could have that mixed up. If you already have a decent edge, you'd want the ceramic of #3, even though the description for slot 1 doesn't make sense. Which slots to use is a problem to sort out. I have a set of Cangshan knives. These were very sharp when new. I mean shave hair off your arms as well as a razor blade. I don't open Amazon boxes with these knives, they are only used on a wood cutting board, and I baby them, wash them, and never let them bang around in the sink with other utensils. They were starting to look dull. It won't get them back to shaving their hair or cutting a sheet of paper. For a basic set of $50 knives, you'll like this because you don't have that reference of what a really sharp kitchen knife is and how nice it is using in that razor-sharp state. I didn't think it would get them back to razor sharp, but I was hoping it would. It doesn't get my good kitchen knives to where I want them so I am honing oil and breaking out the Lansky diamonds. I only want sharp pocket knives or generic kitchen knives that are not abused.
👤The grip is the most important part of a knife sharpener. The grip is easy to hold. There are 3 different types of sharpening that can be used on multiple knives. I used this with two knives. I'm going to sharpen my knife in a few days. This is a small and perfect design gadget that can fit in small spaces.
