I use a 'Steel' for large knives such as a kitchen knife (like any other professional - butcher, chef etc) and/or an Oil Stone for smaller blades such as a Swiss Army Knife. Not sure I'd trust this. Sorry!

Any one used one of these and can give us an opinion?

I agree, far too many gadgets out there, a good steel will last a long time.

need to know how to use a steel though, Chantry sharpeners are pretty good, 2 steels at the correct angle, and good price at the moment, £23

This is the same as the "anysharp" one, which I purchasd from amazon a while back for ~£5.

It gets mixed reviews - while it can sharpen knives ok, its very difficult to get an even sharpness.

I certainly wouldnt recommend using with expensive knives, as this thing actually cuts away more metal than normal sharpening would, and can even take chunks out, leaving you with a nicked edged knife!!

Its ok if youre looking for a quick solution to sharpen cheapo knives though.
#6
I bought this a while ago from Amazon, think i paid about a tenner and for the price am well happy,
more importantly the wife is happy.
Just dont forget to clear up the swarf and wash the knife after sharpening

Just had a look at the Chantry and to me it looks like like the same idea only more expensive.
#7
Bought one a while ago from amazon for about £8 to sharpen up my blunt knives. It's fantastic, really really great for sharpening knives.. I tried them on a cheapo backup set that I have too and it got them from blunt to razor sharp with just a couple of strokes. I don't reccommended using it frequently, once your knives are sharp with this use a steel to maintain it.

+1.

I've got one of these too and it's brought my cheap-ish knives back from the dead, even a knackered old sheath knife that's been sat in the drawer for 30 years! It does take quite a lot of metal off the knives though so, as above, if you've got expensive knives then probably best to leave it alone. Mind you, if you've gone to the expense of buying great knives then you've probably thought about it and bought a decent steel though haven't you?

The noise really puts your teeth on edge when you're using it though. It's not quite as bad as finger nails down a blackboard but not far off!
#9
These are fantastic. Please don't listen to the anyone that says you should use a steel. They are only for people who really know how to use them. For the non-professional it will just round your cutting edge.

This devise is easy to use and it will give you an extremely sharp edge. It will however take quite a bit of metal of the knife which over many many years will 'shrink' your knife.

its not that hard

but you could use this item on lawn mower blades or something
#11
I've got this and the Chantry. The Chantry is a much better product, with this you can see the swarf coming off with each stroke. If you have an inexpensive blade which is very dull then you can use this to quickly get an edge on it but I would not recommend it for serious users.

I've got one - it certainly works.

I got it because I can't use steel properly to sharpen my knives, I find this takes the risk of slicing my hand off away.:thumbsup:

Unlike the present generation, as an Environmental Health Officer who has done more than his fair share of Meat Inspection work months upon months at a time over 20 years in an Export Slaughterhouse (and others) with a throughput in the thousands of cattle units per day I too can use a steel, and oil stone, (although I don't profess to be a real star at knife sharpening, I have met some who can get a superb edge in a quarter of the time it would take me to get only a good one!) but I use an Anysharp.

I have spent a bit of time looking for a post I made some months back, to save the effort, but typically with the search engine on here, I can't find it, so I am going to make some of the points I made there.

Learning to sharpen a knife using traditional means, even passably well takes time.
Using an oil stone (well, I have a diamond stone now, oil stones are just too much bother now better technology exists!) takes space, time and learning to use at all!
A steel only keeps a sharp knife honed, it does nothing for a blunt knife. It also requires time to learn to use well, and safely.
However sharp your knives are, other family members will blunt them in minutes.
Other family members won't be able to sharpen the knives, and blunt knives are deadly dangerous.

So... unless you lock you household knives in a safe, or live alone, you need a sharpening method anyone can use, and after trying many, the Anysharp works brilliantly.
It removes a bit of metal, but you knife isn't going to turn into wire wool anytime soon, but maybe it is not for a knife costing 100 quid a time though! (and some of the Orienta\l steel knives are ground to a different angel anyway!)
The edge is a little "crude" as in it is sharp but not finely honed, but is still very usable.

One problem with this item though.. This is NOT an Anysharp, it's just a look-alike, so the gamble here is - will it work as well as the Anysharp? Well, there are other "copies" eg this Draper one -http://www.amazon.co.uk/DRAPER-ULTI-MATE-SHARPENER-KNIVES-SCISSORS/dp/B001TPPJDS/ref=sr_1_31?ie=UTF8&s=kitchen&qid=1264850957&sr=8-31
Only ONE review... but it's slated! Is this any different I wonder?

Seeing the Anysharp is only a few quid more, I would personally stick with that - see 9 quid at Amazon, however as it is only a cheap item anyway, it's not a big risk to try!

Never known it to be as low as 5 quid at Amazon, although not particularly cheap at the moment; but it doesn't get mixed reviews at all.... I have seen few products as universally highly rated!

It does take a bit more metal out than an oil stone, yes, but it most certainly does NOT take chunks out.

As it is VERY easy to use, I can't even begin to imagine what you are doing to damage a knife with it! A couple of strokes more, and the edge is restored even if there is a nick!

I don't suggest using it with expensive knives either, but that's more based on the fact the grinding angle is usually different on Oriental or layered knives, so it doesn't replicate that angle and as such isn't going to do them any favours. I have a set of Sabatier knives that it gets used on without problems, and I suspect they will be still well usable after I am long gone!

Thousands of cattle units a day, where was this in the UK? The biggest cattle abattoir I can remember was Midland Meat Packers, which was about 800 per day.
I am still working as a MHS Meat Hygiene Inspector.
Everything else you say is correct though.
#16
I have of these and am thinking of getting this as a back-up. Quite easily the best knife sharpener I have owned.

HOT!

I had one. It was rubbish and took chunks out of my knives. Easy to use though.

blunt knives are deadly dangerous.

In all the posts that I have read of yours and I have read lots, this is the very first that I 100% agree with and heartily endorse.:thumbsup:

I am still fascinated by the number of folk who prefer not to sharpen their knives because sharp knives are dangerous. What they will not grasp is that blunt knives are even more dangerous.

Anyone on here who wet shaves will confirm that, I'm sure.[/SIZE]

Did I say day... I meant Month!:oops:
God, that would be some activity, the days were long enough.

It wasn't in the Midlands, anyway, (without wanting to give too much away!)

Actual "cattle," in it's day... something like 200 to 230 per day, (plus pigs & sheep, which were all domestic trade) more on occasions. Never could get the number of AMI's so 3 to 6 months at a time was pretty usual, as well as short term relief, (A little before that, NO AMIs were employed at all, it was full-time staffed by EHOs!) and back then it was the younger lads who got the whole lot of the burden of providing the cover, which of course now none have any but the minimum experience during training!

Going back as much as 33 years ago and like so much of UK industry it's been gone for many years now, and clearly so is my brain - all those specified offals, so little time! :whistling:

I brought one of these off Amazon a few months ago.

It is an awful knife sharpener and just scraped shards of metal off the knife. It's far too harsh.

In the end I got a proper Lansky knife sharpener which actually works. [FONT=Calibri]http://www.lanskysharpeners.com/[/FONT]
#21
I've had mine for a couple of months-good bit of kit suggest users just stroke their knife blade gently through the sharpener on a weekly basis will keep all your everyday knives sharp-I use it on the large carver and the kitchen fruit and general use knives-keeps them sharp and safe.

That's an element of the job you just can't get enough experience in these days - you spend 1/2 a day at an abattoir during practical training if you're lucky.

Still, I'd rather be out in the field than the aforementioned.:thumbsup:
#23
So people who have these and say they are rubbish, are you talking about this "prosharp" or the original "anysharp" which I have and think it's great for normal household use.
Be aware though it's no good for Kitchen Devil type knives with the very fine serrated blades.
#24
My understanding of these is they don't sharpen the edge, but 'shave' a whole chunk out, so great if you need a new edge but not if you want your knifes to last or become razor sharp.

Me too!
I liked Meat Inspection, but it could end up being a bit like painting by numbers! With my disability, I would have had to give it up years sooner too - 8 hours a day on my feet with barely a break wasn't an option!

The people who tried the Anysharp seem to of had a positive experience and it seems a more reputable brand so I have bought one from digyourhome.com for £7.99 and there is a 10% off voucher code and a possible 6% quidco which will make it about the same price as the Pro-sharp with a little more peice of mind. Hope it helps someone.

Not heard of that site before.
It looks as though they have the Anysharp as cheap as anyone then!

i have one of these, superb. for all those that take chunks out of there knives, try sliding it a bit faster, as thats the only way you can take chunks out if you do it slowy, swift rapid movement, my knifes are super sharp.

also i suppose it depends a bit on the knives, i have a set of kitchen devils not the most expensive in the world, and it sharpens them fine, ...................



well worth the money/.

trying to take a gable but the stupid website is taking its dear sweet time to register me.

This looks the same as an 'Anysharp' which I bought about 6 months ago. Great for a busy household, sharpens blunt knives, yes, removes a lot of metal from the knife blade, BUT, I only have mid price knives in my kitchen drawer . I'm an average cook on, an average income and this sharpening does the job that I couldn't manage with a steel.
#31
Thanks to OP and recommendation for anysharp from digyourhome. Another thing I've bought I didn't even know I needed!

Don't do it like that :w00t:
Ramsey makes such a b*lls up of sharpening that knife you wouldn't be able to cut jelly with it by the time he has finished!

He is such a fake. Does anyone still actually believe he is competent in a kitchen?

he is probably an excellent chef but that was horrible...he probably blunted that knife far more than it already was.
