It's rare that I have high praises for a product.
But this one fits the bill.
I have used it to sharpen every knife I have, from many poor quality ones to higher end knives.
It puts a very sharp edge on them all.
You don't have to mess around trying to get the right angle.
I seem to recall a discussion here about knife sharpeners a few months
back. Your sharpener is like some mentioned there for less money.
One company that makes them is Smith's. Smith's has some inexpensive
ones that compare with yours.
They also have some that are more elaborate. If you really want sharp,
take a look at Smith's Adjustable Angle Manual Knife Sharpener.
You will probably find these for less money on E-Bay!
True Value Hardware and a buncha other places, sells this:
They're cheap (>$10), effective, and re-newable. These carbide bit
sharpeners, which literally shave off metal, are becoming more and
more popular cuz they work!
I usta scoff at 'em. I've got mucho high-end kitchen knives and usta
sharpen them on a Japanese water stone. Sure, the edge would last
forever, but it took "forever" to sharpen a knife that well. Now, I
bought a cheapo stamped chef's knife, sharpen it with my Accusharp
and off I go. Works great!
The Accusharp carbide sharpening bits can be reversed, when need be.
They are also completely replaceable, if necessary.
