Looks good .. but bad review from one customer.

:thumbsup:I've bought 2 of these (I have 2 properties) and they are great little tools, really put a sharp edge on knives. Hot

Is the AnySharp Global Knife Sharpener better?

Good price. was going to buy one until I read the review. Don't want to knacker my knives.

AnySharp ones are fantastic, bought 1 for me and one for my parents when they were on offer as Amazon (about £6 each i think).. Would recommend them.

Not sure whether or not these Draper ones are as good?

I have the AnySharp one too, excellent - I have bought them as gifts even, unfortunately not got the draper one to compare with - and in the past, I find just because something looks similar means nothing!

Bit dangerous for me, wife has a bit of a temper so i like to keep ours as blunt as possible.

One like this (not Draper, however looks identical)... made a couple of my globals blunt, to the point it ruined them. Binned it after it done it to the second knife. If thats anything to go by, I wouldnt buy it.

Whetstone please.

Yeah, really good..

good price and i ordered one last time they were cheap........

HOWEVER>.... i don't rate this and the clamp is rubbish when sticking it on any surface, i found it slipped away with any sort of stroke/froce which is a worry when running a blade! it's ok but fairly small and not really aimed at doing your big veggie knifes

How on earth can you "ruin" a knife unless you are removing huge chucks of metal from it or trying to carve a granite worktop? These sharpeners are all a bit crude compared to traditional sharpening, but they are sill manually "powered!"

The AnySharp device removes a lot more metal more quickly than using a sharpening/diamond stone, so over time it might well wear it, but it would take me all day to strip of a substantial amount of metal from a knife in good condition, and even with a proper whetstone, it takes a while!

I would suspect it is not ruined at all - What it needs is grinding, then a good sharpening - there are a LOT of grindings and sharpenings in even a moderate quality knife, never mind something quaility like a Global.

I have one kniferthe AnySharp barely touches, as it is layered and hardened, (like a Japanese or Damaacus sword!) and with that I doubrt I would ever "ruin" it without using some sort of powered device as it is so hard!

The AnySharp one does large Cooks knives and even a very long ham knife I have with ease - seeing as this is trying to do the same job, (and looks essentially very similar, as it is clearly trying to be a copy!) why would it not work with a large knife?

What is stopping it working?

The honed cutting edge on any knife is only a matter of millimetres deep, and there is nothing stopping a knife that is several feet long going through it! Handling CURVED knives is more difficult, but even then if there is enough room behind you to move, it still does the job.

Just bought one at Oldbury - Best price around - but for how long !!!!!!!!!!!

It's not about the amount of metal removed, its about angles.

Of course.
Angles are restored by grinding and the subsequent resharpening, that's what sharpening is all about - so untless you have removed most of the metal, spoiling the entire shape and it can't be reground without destroying the right shape, then a knife is FAR from "ruined!"

reading the review , I'll stick to our Kitchen Devils sharpener , gives a very sharp edge

all options charge delivery when i checked?
