After passing my knives through a few times, the sharpness was back. No fuss, no muss. Easy to hold when placed on the counter and no angle to figure out.
The only down side is that there are no instructions or advice included. I don't know if this should be used every time I want to sharpen my knives or just occasionally. Also, I question whether I am sharpening my scissors correctly since I had to figure it out on my own. Perhaps the Wusthof Web site has more information. Otherwise, it is great.
Downside is that it is a bit pricey. There are cheaper ones out there which I believe would work similarly but would probably lack the little quality touches here and there.
Well, that problem could be fixed with a bit of superglue. But I really shouldn't have to repair things right out of the box. And something with no moving parts (ignoring the floating rod in the scissor sharpener) should be easily made solid.
On the other hand, it seems to work now. My (previously incredibly dull) knives have a new lease on life, and seem moderately sharp. I haven't extensively used any other sharpener (my knives can attest to that), so I don't know how it compares.
I too was pleased at first. But after a couple of months of intermittent use this sharperner would no longer sharpen our knives. Putting the blade in at an angle brought some of the sharpening ability back but soon that also stopped sharpening. Looks like the sharpening elements get dull.
Poor quality product not meant to last.
PROS: I can confirm that my knives seem much sharper after use with this tool, they definitely cut better.
CONS: But I can also confirm this does NOT sharpen the blades in a professional manner and in fact this tool has actually RUINED THE BLADE EDGES with little nicks and chips along the entire lengthy out of the knife. You can clearly see this yourself, check out my photos.
Test this yourself. Take a close look at the cutting edge of your blade. Assuming it's smooth and un-chipped now run the blade through the fine sharpener a few times and inspect the resulting damage. You can run your blade through the sharpener all day long, it will continue to have various nicks and chips. On top of that, the blades noticeably dull extremely quickly. It does an extremely poor job at sharpening your knife.
I'm now on the hunt to learn how to properly sharpen my blades with a stone, or hire a professional to come in and sharpen all of my knives periodically.
Finally purchased a Spyderco Tri-Angle Sharpmaker http://www.amazon.com/Spyderco-Tri-Angle-Sharpmaker-Sharpener-204MF/dp/B000Q9C4AE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1358705030&sr=8-1&keywords=triangle+sharpmaker It's a little more tricky to use as you have to hold the knife perfectly vertical against one stone as opposed to the V shape of the Wüsthof.Read more ›

Excellent value in a knife sharpener. It does very well sharpening our expensive Henckels and Wusthof knives, and also works on our far less expensive Farberware. Read morePublished 11 months ago by JTC
