Can't think of anything to have issue with
on April 3, 2015
First off I really like the build quality of this. I can't stand things that feel flimsy or cheap, and while this isn't made out of anything high-grade (it's like $13) it has a decent bit of heft and sturdiness which I appreciated right off the bat. The rubber padding at the bottom of the sharpener also gives it some friction against your counter so it doesn't move or slide while sharpening.
Aside from the general build, it worked great. I did exactly as the instructions said, just run the knife over the two sharpening grooves 3-4 times each without applying additional pressure and I instantly noticed an improvement. I had a slightly ripe tomato that I tried cutting before and after sharpening and the difference was night and day.
I also used this on a decent nice knife, some Global Santoku pieces I own, and noticed no scratching/blemishes on the metal after use, which I was a little worried about. I will definitely keep this with me for a long time!
