This sharpener will put a sharp, if technically inferior, edge on your blade. What does that mean? To use it you drag your knife through the sharpener a couple of times and the carbide scrapes a new edge onto your knife. The job is done in about 10 seconds and off you go to slice your tomatoes. However since this is not a carefully honed edge it will not last as long as one that is. The sharpener is so easy to use that I don't mind having to resharpen more frequently, as opposed to my other sharpeners that put a nice edge on a blade but are a huge pain to use.

I haven't had much success or ambition when it comes to sharpening knives on stones or sandpaper. I've read numerous articles and watched numerous videos on how to sharpen knives, and I've made a few attempts, but I still haven't got the knack. I've even heard conflicting advice. One master chef says it's easy to sharpen your own knives on a stone, and another says that chefs send their cutlery to a professional for sharpening.

I often find myself fresh out of time and patience for all this fuss, and so I have resorted to various cheap gizmos to do the work for me. This one actually works. As you run it over your knife blade, you can feel the resistance as it hogs off steel and forms a new edge. When the resistance is gone, typically after 5-10 light strokes, that's your signal that the carbide V has done all the shaping it's going to do for now. There is no guesswork.

It puts a nice utility edge on a blade. How sharp and durable that edge may be depends on several things, such as the blade's hardness and edge geometry. It's nowhere near glassy smooth, but that's OK, because the nearly invisible snaggletoothed "micro-serrations" help the knife bite into most materials.

The downside is that it does hog off material. It'll eventually wear out any knife you use and sharpen constantly. If you do happen to be a chef, for example, using this thing means that your favorite knife is not going to last for years. But most chefs probably figure out how to keep their knives in good shape fairly early in their careers. And I'm not a chef. Even my favorite knives get relatively light use, and one of those is an $8 Old Hickory butcher knife. So I'm not too worried about the loss of steel.

I do have knives that I like too much to run through this thing.

While this thing will put an edge on a knife, it will also really gouge the blade if you use too much pressure on it. You really have to be careful and use a very light stroke so as not to gouge the blade.

I have owned this sharpener for over a year. I tried to find one for our camper and couldn't locate it anywhere. I was browsing on the kitchen site and found the identical item. This made my day and I was so pleased at finding it, I ordered 4 more. I have bought 3 or 4 different types of knife sharpeners and did not like the results from them. This is the best I have ever used and it only takes two or three swipes to get a very sharp blade.
Just make sure after using the sharpener, to wash or wipe the knife blade as there is a bit of metal residue left on the blade. The shipping has been a little slow on this item, which is unusual but I do have the original sharpener so there is no urgency to get my order.

It looks like you can buy this product with other upscale names at more money. Mine works fine, sharpens quickly, and is safe.
Works well on scissors too.

The knife sharpener really takes quite a bit of metal off, and puts a pretty shallow edge on whatever you use it on. I wouldn't recommend using this on any knives that aren't cheap and essentially disposable. I have used this to set a functional edge on knives that were extremely dull and then used a flat diamond sharpener to give it a real edge. Also, if you have a knife that has small chips in it, this takes off so much metal that you can smooth it out relatively quickly.

I've had limited success with the scissor sharpener. It doesn't seem to really get quite the right angle to match the angle any of my scissors' blades are at. You'll, at best, put a shallow and short-lived angle on seemingly most scissors.

This does a pretty good job on kitchen knives and I even use it to put the initial edge on my straight-bladed hand sickle that I use for weed trimming. It does not work very well on another sickle with a curved blade because it is too big to maneuver inside the tight curve. The sharpening "stones" are fairly coarse, and I wish there was an identical sharpener with ceramic stones to finish putting on a fine edge. I use the Smith's CCKS 2-Step Knife Sharpener to finish the sharpening because one side of it has the fine ceramic, but that one is not quite so convenient to use. If I was using two-hundred-dollar knives I would probably use a different sharpening system, but this does well for a low-skill person like me with inexpensive knives. I used the scissor sharpener for the first time today and was very surprised with how well it worked -- just insert both blades in the two slots with the scissors wide open, then close them as if you were cutting something while smoothly drawing the blades out as they close.
