Does the sharpener make dull knives sharper? It certainly does, in just a few minutes. Does it make them sharp enough for routine use? I would say yes; I am not a professional chef, but I find that I am much happier with the performance of my knives after sharpening. Does it return them to their factory degree of razor sharpness? Unfortunatley, no. I think there is no question that my knives were sharper out of the box than I can achieve with this hand sharpener. But that does not mean that this was a bad purchase. It has restored my knives from being a bit dull to being perfectly adequate for the use they get in my kitchen.
If you want to achieve like-brand-new razor sharpness, this sharpener will not do that for you. If you want to bring your dull knives back to a degree of sharpness that will be adequate for 99% of home cooks, this would be a good item to have.
Henckels Pro S Series (German Ice Hardened Steel) - 3 years
Henckels International (Spanish Carbon Steel) - 10 years
Oxford Hall Stainless (Japanese High Carbon Steel) Chef's Knife - >40 years
These knives have seen a lot of use. The Oxford Hall is practically an heirloom. In any case, I used the standard sharpening steel for years, which did little to get the knives sharper - just re-orient the edge it seems. I bought this after reading reviews and was pleased with the results. A couple of things:
1) Hardened knives need more pulls than 5 to get them to sharpness. I use "1" until I hear and feel no more drag on the blade. I then repeat with "2." This may take 10-25 pulls the first time, but I only have to do this once a week with hardened steel blades cooking every day, and it takes 3-5 pulls now.
2) Check your knives first. Do not use this if your knives have chips in it; it will only make it worse. At that point, either send it to the manufacturer or a knife sharpening service or get a whetstone. You have to grind it down and re-hone the blade. This is not the use for this or any other sharpener.
3) It would be difficult to get the knives to factory honed sharpness (many use lasers to get the edge that sharp - just as a reference). It would take a Master Knife Sharpener to do this, or many passes on different whetstones of varying grit, so $19 to get a useful edge back on your knife is pretty good...
4) If you want your edges to last, cut on wood rather than plastic, ceramic, or glass (shudder).

Both my husband and I have found this to be an extremely difficult sharpener to use, it's hard to find the correct angle and correct amount of pressure.Published 9 days ago by Tjdanwald
This thing works really well. Easy to use. I got one for my dad, too. It gets my chef's knife and pairing knife sharper than just by using a sharpening steel.Published 17 days ago by D. Osborne
Not worth the money. Does no better than cheaper cheaper sharpeners. It is convenient to use and store, but who cares when the purpose is to sharpen good knives.Published 23 days ago by Old-always learning
Sharpener works very well, but the rubber feet on the bottom were not glued correctly (feet would slide and smear glue and not stick in place).Published 1 month ago by Ryan Beechey
