Has anyone used this before?

Has anyone used this before?



Yep ! I have one ...works superb...:thumbsup:

I wouldn't use it on expensive knives though.

blumming heck I paid £15 a few weeks ago for one of these frm the Grand Design show. Really good, simple to use.

Banned

always gets rave reviews and usually costs no less than 10 quid so hot deal

Has anyone used this before?



Yes.
Great for cheap or medium price knives, not for ceramic or anything very expensive, YES it will wear the knife a bit, but that won't matter on more everyday knives.

Any idiot can use it, so ideal if like me you hate it when other family members RUIN the edge you spent ages getting right on your favourite knife, a couple of drags through this, and it's sharp enough to use, and be safe as it will not need excess pressure to cut with! :-)

To save a lot of waffle here, (someone will want to run it down and describe it as the worst thing since child-murder!) it would be worth digging out the old threads as everything has been discussed in detail, more than once!

Perfect Fathers Day present.

No seriously.

Are you trying to suggest he's not the sharpest knife in the drawer :prop:

Yup. About 90 mins ago to put a razor edge on a keyring penknife.

I use mine ffor every knife in the gaff.

good for getting a blunt knife a sharper - but its VERY agressive ... suggest a good steel is better for keeping knives honed

As said, very aggressive. Leaves a very toothy edge on the knife too. Useful for quickly adding a new edge to a knife, but I wouldn't say it's a one-stop shop really. At minimum adding a steel would be sensible, it'll tidy the edge up a bit and keep the knife sharp so you won't need to use this so much (it strips a fair bit of metal off your knife so not good to use it often really).

These are blinding at getting knives sharp..5 strokes and you'll be able to peel rotten tomatoes!!

I've had my cheapo ethos knives that cost £30 from TKMaxx for 12 years and since getting one of these they are permo-sharp! It's this gadget that stopped me buying some Global's. My knives may not keep their edge for long but it takes 5 seconds to get them like razors again.....

That's because you're not pulling the knife straight through in a firm and manly way.

And before you start saying 'that's because I am a lady', get a bloke in if you're not up to the tasks of everyday living.

The reason this item was designed is because countless members of the great unwashed have blunted their best knife thinking they could use a steel.

Listen, kitchen knives are so fecking cheap these days that unless you're Heston Bloomingwotsits it's best to buy 'em knew, keep 'em sharp' and chuck 'em once they can't be sharpened anymore.

:-Dgot one last time they were on offer, well pleased with it:-D

used to be cheaper on 7 day shop, but they've replaced it with a metal version, which is a rip off!

I have a set of Global knives. They aren't all that, I have snapped two and the wife snapped one dropping it. Use the minosharp for them which works well. Got one replaced in full by John Lewis and a discount on the other two. Overpriced IMO.....

what's the difference between this and the pro version?

Ive got one of these, If your useless with a sharpening hone get this.

got one of these months ago - works great.

These are the best sharpener I have tried, better than a steel any day!

Diamond deal, thanks.

That's like suggesting a handkerchief makes a good bath towel.

For a different job.

Ordered, thanks.

These genuinley ARE superb. I tried a steel and am useless at it. Spent ages trying to get anywhere whereas with this, razor sharp in seconds. Makes a HUGE difference to cutting food and actually safer as a result.

Thanks just ordered one

Ace, just ordered my dad one for father's day... can't wait to use it myself! *geek*

I have one of these, and I think they are completely duff....or I used to. I bought on the strength of the reviews on Amazon, and seeing the comments here as well, makes me think that my specific sharpener is duff, rather than the brand. I used it on my global knives, and it certainly left loads of filings, but not a sharp edge. A steel worked better.

I'll stick to my oil stone and a leather belt. That's how you sharpen a knife :thumbsup: .
(well actually my leather belt is a dog lead, but it does a great job).]

But this thing is good for a quick fix, so voted hot.

yup this was my experience also, I was starting to think it was the way I was using it, however I did work in a butchers shop and I do know a little about sharpening knives, it has rendered most of the knives, scissors etc useless, I even tried it on some of the kitchen devil knives we have and yes you've guessed it they now find it difficult to cut bread buns , my wife has gone apeshit, and yes it seemed to grind excessive steel shavings off, in fact I think after not to many visits the knife would only be a handle :(, please if there are others to experince this let me know as I am contemplating returning this one

Usually at least £14.99, Ordered this - Thanks OP. H+R added!

Saves me getting a set of Global's for the time being!

Clearly little, very little! (Then again I once worked in a Hospital, but it never quite qualified me to do Open Heart surgery either!)

For one thing Kitchen Devil knives are not sharpened in the conventional way they have what is effectively an extra serrated edge, so yes, I dare say it will strip that off! Should work better once that is completely stripped away and used like a conventional knife, but as much as they remove metal, that would take a bit of effort!

This is an ALTERNATIVE simple method of sharpening knives, at the cost of being a bit heavy on the knife, but can be done by anyone. God help those who can't do this, in that case I would suggest microwave ready meals as an alternative, as NOTHING is simpler.

Proper sharpening is FAR better, but few people will ever spend the time and effort it takes to produce a good edge, and now I no longer work with knives, even I would take a bit of getting back into it; this gives a good edge, if a little rougher than perfect, but ideal for most domestic purposes, and sharp knifes are invariably safer to use because they require so much less pressure and so allow for fine control

Fantastic bit of kit !!!

Thank you!!! Ordered, H+H added

Just don't want people to think he's a knife maniac!

its a bit cheeky they use the name "Global" as there's no way i'd ruin my Global knives with this to save a few quid. ill stick with the proper water sharpener i think

I find this very easy to use too and as other previous posts on here have stated this does leave a slightly rough edge on your knife, if you really want to go the full distance try getting one of these ......

ikea.com/gb/…296

Just give it a few glides through this after using the anysharp and it removes the sharp edges to give razor sharp finish, I had one of these first and thought it was useles but combining the two gives a proffesional edge to my cheap knives. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Got mine on Friday, really happy with it. The smoothness of the edge depends on the competency of the user, my first knife was a little rough but then subsequent knifes were really smooth, as I got more experienced with it.

Knife now chops through onions like they were butter.

Heat added - bought one to help knacker my peasant quality £80 knife set.
