My sharpener arrived today. I immediately tried it out on a very old knife that had never been professionally sharpened and was perpetually dull. I had about given up on it. Within minutes it had a new edge and I was sliced thin tomato slices from a very ripe tomato with it.
Frankly, I was pretty amazed since I've tried to sharpen this knife on numerous other devices. I have another sharpener with a. similar operating mechanism, but this one is much easier to use. It's a very simple, but well built device that does an amazing job. I can recommend it without hesitation.
This sharpener works great on all my knives except one from New West Knife Works. Apparently the steel has such a high hardness rating that the B & T sharpener doesn’t do much. Your CSR was great in helping me understand hardness ratings. Fortunately New West will sharpen it for free. Other than that, it is easy to use and doesn’t take up much counter space at all.
Recommended by a friend. Does a great job on all of my knives.
it really gets my knives sharp. am glad i bought it.
