Firstly though it looks obvious on how to use, instructions wouldn’t have gone astray. Upon using the first time, the sharpening of a knife can be felt. As time of use, the blades are not as useful. They become blunt. I have learnt to use in sharpening a knife to pull on a 45 degree angle both left and right side or angle on one side and then turn around and sharpen the other way. This may work for a while then go back to normal sharpening. There also is no suction to hold down the mouse, so fingers beware. Though it may look great, needs many improvements and modifications to reach a higher review for me.
Unfortunately, would not recommend this item. Look around for better sharpener.
Not Interested At All
i am not the least bit interested in this product or any other product from Global Shop Direct. I have been bitten 3 times with their gear. One would think I would have learned after the the first time. But after reading these reviews on this item I am not the least bit tempted. The only way I would consider it if it was sent to me free to try and no postage charges and no charges to send it back. Many Thanks to those who bothered to send in a review.
Rubbish. Wrecks knives.
Wanted a quick and easy sharpener to use in between proper wet-stone sharpening. The tungsten edge tore huge shreds of metal off my Mundial and the ceramic section did nothing to put a final edge on the knife. 5 light quick swipes took off great shards of steel.
It finally took about 20 swipes to get any kind of edge on it, but that was easily a year or more of steel off the blade.
If you sharpen your knives to a single fine edge this restores it to a broad double. A well handled wet stone does a much better job.
Wouldn't be so worried if...it simply didn't work (it was an experiment) but it also took lots of precious metal off my edge with one sharpening. If you want a proper sharpen, use a proper tool, not this toy. Rubbish. Easy to hold while you ruin your knives. It doesn't work. not even a bit.
