I've used it for a couple years now with no complaints (and actually back on Amazon to buy more). On dull blades it takes many pulls on the course side to re-set the edge - but that's a given with any dull blade. As the one review noted, it can get a little flippy if too much pressure is applied - but that's the case with any of these hand held styles. And once you've done a couple knives, you get the feel for the angle to hold it at based on how much pressure you need to apply. A couple pulls on the ceramic and that knife is good to go for a long time. Don't be afraid to repeat the steps many times - if its a hard steel, it's going to take a few cycles on any knife to set the edge
Buy one for you and a few for stocking stuffers - perfect guy present. I'd guess that any other knife sharpener in this style would preform about as well - but since this one is cheaper... couple extra coins for your pocket.
To operate the sharpener you must 1st flip down the guard (see picture above). This guard does not lock but there is a notch that it falls into once opened. Too much pressure and the guard will slip out of the notch and collapse the sharpener while in use. The sharpener is not free standing and requires a hand on it to keep it upright while sharpening. At best, this is somewhat ackward.
The angle at which to hold the knife while sharpening is a best guess. Although the sharpener's blade design is V-shaped(see picture above), which allows the knife to fit into the groove, there is still room for slippage while pulling the knife through which can scrape and scar the side of the knife.
The knife sharpener has a "course" side and a "fine" side (see picture above). Those with damaged and knicked blades use the course side then finish with the fine side. Those just "touching up" a blade that is already sharp with only use the fine.
Although I tried to sharpen a pair of right handed scissors using this sharpener, I did not notice any change after 2 or 3 pulls. I did have success sharpening knives. Although I found it ackward to bend over the sharpener trying to keep it steady while pulling the knife through.
Yes, the company succeeded in designing a knife sharpener. However, it is unsteady and it requires some skill to hold and operate at the same time.
