Agree with elena, lots and lots of metal shaved off the knives each time they are sharpened... not sure how this can be good for any knife, especially an expensive one! I sometimes use the sharpener on cheap knives, but honestly I use my lansky on my expensive knives.
P.S. I also bought the Kleva sharpener at a Toronto show.
No such thing as a knife which doesn't need sharpening
I believe the biggest problem with the Kleva range is James shouting about how great things are. People tend to believe things more when it's shouted at them. They knives are ok, but nothing liked claimed. I run mine over a stone every 2nd time I use them with the exception of the bread knife which is essentially a saw.
A friend bought the sharpener and one of the screws on top was missing straight out of the packet! Poor assembly not to notice that!
Kleva Products are Krap.
I've had these knifes for over 12 months now and they've needed sharpening after every use. I now know why they give you 2 sharpeners for the price of one, The sharpener is now crap and I need to start using the spare one.
Do your self a favour, Be Kleva and don't by Kleva.

Broke in a few uses
I was very happy with this product until pin fell out. I bought this at a winter fair here in Toronto. Not sure how to contact vendor so I contacted Kleva. They said I could not get a replacement pin and in order to get item replaced I would have to track down the Vendor. Ya right. These guys peddle Kleva products for cash at fairs never to be found again. Sad that this item will be put in trash because of a small pin. lessons here. Don t buy from vendors as company will not honour product warranty and don t buy Kleva products again
Was Fantastic but now doesn't work!
I purchased 10 as gifts. Mine stopped working after 20 uses. That's ok they are guaranteed. BUT check out the process of getting it to them and the associated hassles and postage both ways. I suggest they must have a lot of returns for them to make it not worth while sending back under warranty. Just my opinion.
If you want your good knifes ruined Buy Kleva Sharp....
Tried to use once or twice on home knifes...it literally takes off slices of metal of your knifes....and it hardly made a difference Wusthof to sharpness of the knifes. Pure waist of money. Had to through away and asked a local knife sharpener ...to do a proper job...support your local business or local butcher who can get the job done properly....

Great set of knives for all different uses.
Great set of knives. Even my husband is impressed and has switched from his old set of trusty knives to these. Took over two weeks to deliver - but guess it was the Xmas/New Year backlog. Sliced tomato and cheese with the greatest of ease. Like, also, that they don't have separate handles which invariably wear loose or get discoloured and old.
The Kleva Sharp Pruning Shears!
Very disappointed with the first 2 pairs of shears I have tried since receiving my order. They work OK for a while but after a couple of hours of not heavy work, the ratchet closing mechanism fails to operate effectively now and again and I find this frustrating for the supposedly worlds best pruning shears. I am also extremely disappointed that Kleva Sharp Products has not had the courtesy to respond to an email I sent through with feedback that they requested from me. Not the follow up I was expecting from such a well advertised product brand. Ray S. N'th Q'ld.
The shears l received were not the ones advertised. They didn't have the finger guard. The advertised one's bottom cutting deck looked like metal. It seems the only metal in it are the screws holding it together and the top cutting blade which is quite thin. So thin I've already broken one Lucky i got the 4 for 1 deal. The handles also pinch your hand when gripping tightly. I still use them , I'm just not as impressed as I'd hoped
I purchased the 5 klevasharp knives with bonus can opener and micro slicer and ks pro knife sharpener, wow the knives are super sharp, nearly cut my finger the first day, I recommend the knife set if anyone is sick of blunt knives. Keep up the great products.

Purchased the shears and on the 3rd use - pruning rose bushes- the connecting pin dropped out making the shears inoperable.
Tried the second pair and the same thing happened on first use..Not Happy Jan!!
Will be making a claim for refund as paid via Paypal

Did nothing to sharpen my knives. I have great knives, am on a disability pension, so hard physically, to do it the old way, with steel. So i bought one of these and crap, what a waste of money, it will sharpen a new knive but the old one in back of drawer, umn nup..

Questions & Answers
Who owns the voice that does the kleva sharp ads. I am sure he is a nice person but his voice gives nightmares while I am awake. Lay off the shouting advertising please
Hi, one of my kevlar knives has the weight loose in the handle, is this common or can it be replaced and where can I get it replaced if I have to please? cheers
I think this question was intended for someone else. I have the sharpener but do not have knives. Sorry
Can you sharpen scissors with this?
Depends on the scissors. I used it to sharpen my scanpan shears/scissors and it ruined them. Several pairs of expensive dress making scissors were also ruined - they only cut or chew paper now. I did successfully sharpen a thin bladed scanpan knife, so if your scissors are normal thin bladed ones it could possibly work. If they are serrated or have a slight beveled edge to the blade then I wouldn't risk it.
