Another Pull Through Sharpener That Doesn't Work
on July 12, 2013
After reading lots of glowing reviews, I was still skeptical from my poor experiences with pull through sharpeners but I decided against my better judgement and purchased this. Well, I should have used my judgement and not purchased this. I have not been impressed with this style sharpener and was looking for a quick alternative to my other knife sharpening systems, but I thought that being from Henckels it would be top notch like their cutlery. I was mistaken; it is nothing impressive. All it is is an overpriced pull through sharpener. No more, no less. Granted, it will put a mediocre edge on an extremely dull knife, but does not return knives to anywhere close to their potential. I believe I have reasonable expectations and I am not expecting it to put a flawless razor edge on the knives, but I have had similar results from the cheapo pull though sharpeners purchased at any big chain store.
All in all, if you really just want to get your knives usable again, opt for a cheaper pull through; it will do the same job for considerably cheaper. If you want your knives like they were new, buy a good sharpening system or have them professionally sharpened.
