I didn't want the tines really sharp, as that's asking to get poked. Rather tapered to a slightly dull rounded point, then the ground metal polished smooth. This made it much easier to insert into a muffin. I split a dozen or more at a time, then freeze them for storage. If I was only splitting one or two muffins, this might be marginally better than a fork, though not by much.
Sharpening is not quick and easy/ Unfortunately, the tines look to be cast into the plastic or pressed in and not removable without risking damage. Removing them would make grinding a point much easier. I used a small bench belt sander followed with a rotary tool buff to polish. They should be made this way.
The English muffin splitter works well with one issue. There were burrs on the edges of some of the tines. These seem to have to do with the way the tines were cut. Without too much trouble, I was able to file the burrs off with improved the ease of putting the tines through the muffin.
If not for this issue, I'd have given 5 stars. IMO, this is a manufacturing technique issue. The splitter still worked with the burrs on, but it caused a noticeable amount of muffin to catch and remain on the tines and required more cleaning effort.
Using the splitter certainly gives a better effect than using a knife.
