I'm an engineer, not a cook, so I'm probably looking at this product in a different light. After one use on my (inexpensive) KitchenAid santoku small and medium knives, I was able to slice a tomato just by lightly passing the knife edge along the skin--impressive! I had no trouble getting a second slice that was less than 1 mm thick--equally impressive! Given that I don't own an expensive set of Global knives (the best I ever had was a set of Chicago knives back in the 80s that I had sharpened once, then honed with a ceramic rod periodically), I can't compare this to how a professionally-sharpened Global would slice, but it's definitely the sharpest edge I've ever experienced. Again, that was after a single use on each knife (20 passes on each wheel, per the instructions).

One obvious compromise in the design (to my engineer's eye) is that the wheels can't be re-oriented to the opposing angle. Consequently, the last 1/2 inch or so of each end of the blade is going to get sharpened on only one side (as opposed to all the blade surface in between, which comes into contact with both sides of each wheel). Over time (a long time?) this may result in the tip and the butt of the blade not quite being in line with the rest of the blade. While possibly of less concern for a chef's knife (or other long-bladed knife), it may affect the use of smaller knives, in time. If the manufacturer had designed the sharpener so that each wheel had two sets of mounting posts (instead of just the one set), with one set for each orientation, then the wheels could have been changed back and forth between the two orientations in between sharpening sessions, balancing out the sharpening on the tip and butt of the knife's blade.

This sharpener fixed our dull globals and they were pretty bad after several years of neglect. We tried the sharpener with several other knives, both cheap and expensive. It consistently left a razor sharp edge on all of them. A bit expensive but worth it.

The Minosharp 3 stage knife sharpener is a fantastic tool that perfectly compliments my Global knives. A few passes on each stone and my knife is dangerously sharp. I would not trust a no name branded knife sharpener with my expensive Global knives. Highly recommended.

Was initially skeptical but was very impressed. I first tried it on one of my smaller Global knife. I used it to slice a tomato the next day and it just glided through like hot knife through butter. Although it's not as sharp as when I got it brand new, it definitely restored most of the sharpeness of the knives. Definitely a great product to!

So I just got the sharpener today, but upon the first couple uses, it puts a nice edge on knives. It took me about a minute to get the hand position and pressure down, but I got it. Don't worry, if it falls apart soon, I'll re-review.

Didn't get my Globals sharp enough.
I ended up getting the mino sharp guides and some sharpening stones.
The learning curve is fast and those provide a REAL edge for your expensive Japanese knives.

This is a nice little gadget, it's easy to use, and will get your Global knives relatively sharp. After a couple of minutes work my three easily sliced through fresh tomatoes. You won't get as fine an edge as you would be using a whetstone, but this tool is foolproof, and there's no learning curve or worrying that you're not doing it right. It's plenty sharp enough for me, but if you want a razor sharp edge buy a whetstone and guides.

I checked on the Global homepage, and it has the exact same model number as the Global 3 Stage Sharpener Minosharp Plus - Gray/Black, so buy this one and save yourself fifteen dollars.

I understand 3/21/11 review comments about blade scratches. He/she didn't seem overly concerned. I find them troublesome. Problem is dirt build up along edge of plastic grooves. Watch for it, clean with solvent or household cleaner, and no scratches.
