Seen this for £6.75 with free delivery on that seller on Amazons website. Won't post link as not sure if allowed
The sharpening 'steels' on each side of this look to be at a rather wide angle and placing a blade in there is going result in it bearing down on the point where the two steels intersect. If anything, this will ruin the edge of a decent blade. It will no doubt give an edge to a tired old blade but I'd hate to see the result of a decent blade going through this thing. Might be ok if you haven't a clue how to keep a blade sharp but not something I'd run any of my blades through and that 'suction' thing worries me.

Got one from amazon for £5.99 last week. £7 aint a bad price for an average knife ****er upper though lol.
Suction cup actually works really well. With regards to the sharpening side of things this thing does take shavings off the blade of the knife so for expensive knives probably best to use a stone or something.
I've got cheap knives so this thing works brilliantly.
Blasphemous

They're actually pretty good for a rough sharpen, as in they leave the blade rough and sort of serrated lol. You can then tidy it with a steel if you want. Most people on here probably buy poundland blades anyway X)
good at any price:). Using it for years

Great thanks for the code! Great bargain.
Very effective (and quick) on soft metal blades (most knives). Soft isn't bad so don't see that as a criticism. Two of my favourite knives (John Lewis chefs knife and an Ikea santoku) are soft and sharpen up within a couple of swipes through this.

If your knives are particularly hard, you're going to need a harder sharpener. The AnySharp leaves them with a jagged edge, so it's better to skip this for proper, tiered whetstones. If you don't know what you're doing, you can do a lot worse than the Anolon Universal sharpener. Takes a bit longer (seconds, not minutes) but gives a great result.

If you've got ceramic-alloy knives, you need a diamond sharpener. They cost even more but by design, they're the only thing hard enough to work the blade.
Use a proper steel, these are hopeless IMO but good for noob chefs or cooks.
Get to the point.
just ordered one thanks for the code
If you are willing to spend a bit more (if you have higher quality knives) I would recommend either:
Lansky Lansky or Spyderco sharpmaker.

If the knife is sharp why would it need sharpening?
Was decent for about 6months now just grates the knife doesn't sharpen at all
I have one of these, and they are fine for sharpening blades that have completely lost their edge, then simply hone after using it with a steel/leather.
It's the kind of thing you wouldn't use very often, as it does take a fair amount of metal off the knife. In fact, if you take care of your knives you may never need to use it again.

cool
Just got my second one from Ebay, and it's obviously a cheaper copy of the original. My first one is better in all regards (build quality, sharpening ability, suction power). So make sure you get an original!

These are rubbish and you can see bits of metal on the unit after using it. It actually damages knives, it's almost too good I suppose. Unless you do perfect run with your knife through it you will be left with a very sharp knife, but the problem is it will become blunt again in a matter of a few uses.

Not sure how well it does on top quality knives, but that's how it's turned out on various mid range stuff for me.
Seriously, one dodgy run with a knife and you will have reduced it to a cheap piece of crap that simply won't stay sharp and you'll be using this constantly.

When you first use it you will be amazed "wow it's so good at sharpening that you can see bits of metal" you'll say in your head...That's NOT how sharpening should work and hence you'll have a "weak" knife after using it.

Great for murderers though as flesh is soft, not so good for general mutilation work on a chopping board.
these are rubbish..

These are great for sharpening cheap old knives and giving them a new lease of life. However, and as noted above, they will ruin better blades that need professional sharpening.
