"Sadly, the search for a good knife sharpener continues"
18 February 2015
Looking for an alternative to a sharpening iron, I bought this item on impulse as it was on offer at £24.99 (not cheap). In theory it sounds like the ideal unit but despite having diamond clad surfaces it does not work very well. I did not find it very effective and anything more than minimum pressure takes the knife blade - especially on large knives - lower than the diamond covered area. Reading previous reviews I understand that previous versions had more extensive diamond coverage. Sadly, the search for an reliable, effective knife sharpener continues. I wish I had read the reviews first!
