Excellent knife sharpener. Bought one of these recently when £8, but now has an extra 25% off. Also got Quidco on my purchase, so should be available on this too.

Thanks to whoever posted the picture by the way!

Sausage fingers and touchscreen were making a hash of it.

Total £8.95 including delivery if you don't live near a store.

If I had a £ for every time I saw this knife ruining device advertised...it shaves metal of the cutting edge and please, please don't use this on any decent knife such as global knives

Global knifes are overpriced and overrated tat and myself and others have had rust issues and yes even following the care instructions

Good deal if you want to ruin your knives.
Takes far too much metal off.

Avoid.

Here's a great tip, do you use stanley knives etc,? ever since I owned a knife sharpener I sharpen my stanley utility blades with it, never bought another spare blade since, and used the same blade over and over and over and over again. (_;)

brilliant sharpener

Dreadful "sharpener".

Should really be called a "gouger" because that is all that it does to blades. I bought one, used it a couple of times and shoved it in the drawer where it probably still remains after it hacked great big ragged chunks out of my kitchen knives.

If you want to get your knives properly sharp without damaging them, there are a range of decent and inexpensive products out there, but the one I use is the Lansky Turn Box, made by a company that specialise in sharpeners.

amazon.co.uk/Lan…W0E

One of these should last a lifetime, can be used to make a compound (stronger) bevel on your knives and gives a clean, consistent edge without compromising the life of your blade.

It takes just a couple of minutes on a blunt knife using the turnbox to get it back to a decent level of sharpness. If you put a few more minutes in you can quite reasonably expect to get a knife to the point where it will shave. Plus, if you use a compound bevel the edge will stay true a lot longer.

Absolute rubbish about removing too much metal and ruining knives. I've used one of these for over seven years on a medium quality set of knives and also a quality Prestige Sabatier.

None show any signs of abnormal wear, and they all get used and sharpened regularly.

This is an excellent sharpener for everything but the most expensive chef's knives. All other talk is just knife snobbery. Most people wouldn't know how to use a sharpening steel properly anyway.

I concur with peoples comments about the sharpener being too aggressive. Removes too much material in one pass to get a smooth, sharp edge & ruins good knives. I bought myself a decent oilstone & never looked back.

Yep brilliant sharpener, well worth the money. Actually i need to get it out now!!

Brilliant sharpener.

Heat.

Nearly bought one of these a year or so ago but after reading how they ruin knives I got a sharpening steel for the same price, no great skill needed to use it and fantastic results!

Great little item, keeps my knifes nice and sharp, very easy to use HOT

I's rather just buy new knives when old ones go blunt - which isn't very often as far as I can tell.

It costs appr 2 pounds in China including delivery- cold

It would be cheaper and more effective to sharpen your knife with tepid custard than this

Out of stock.

Click & Collect at my Asda (Wallington store) is a nightmare and because it is primarily the entertainment desk it takes forever to be served and then the sole staff needs to go to the opposite corner of the store to reach the store room and usually takes 10 minutes to return for each customer collection. If there are a few collections ahead of you then it's going to be a long wait.
