I like top quality when it comes my cookware, knives etc. It has always made things easier to cook a quality meal. Having top quality knives, I have always simply used a steel, being a bit hesitant to use anything else. I bought this to TRY it. WOW, nice choice. What a superb choice. It is used all the time now......away with my steel. This takes away very little metal on your edge IF your knives are in good shape to begin with. As such I have always used the finer side of the tool. It is safe and easy.
This product is amazing. My knives which were very dull, are now great after just a few seconds of sharpening. So easy to use. I never liked the idea of the sharpening rods because I thought I could wind up cutting myself. No worries with that here! It even worked great on my serrated knives which I never thought could be sharpened. Compact and very nice looking design. Great gift idea. Too bad I didn't know about this earlier.since I have thrown many dull serrated knives out over the years.
Up until yesterday, I was using a small handheld sharpener that was not getting the job done for our kitchen knives. When I saw this as one of the daily deals, I took the chance and bought it. Glad I did!
My wife was using a knife yesterday that could hardly cut through a tomato without having to saw it. After 5 pulls on both the course and fine side of this sharpener, it cut through a tomato like butter! The knife is as sharp, if not sharper, than when the knife was new.
With a non slip bottom and good handle to hold, this sharpener cannot be beat.
Quick service and EXCELLENT item! Easiest knife sharpener I've ever seen/used. Works as promised. Highly recommend this to others like me who hate to sharpen knives with the old traditional stone method.
I used my knife sharpener for the first time while making dinner, I was amazed at how well it sharpened the knife I was using. So amazed that I temporarily abandoned dinner so I could sharpen the other knives in the drawer. This sharpener is a must have for every kitchen, you will not be disappointed.
