I always read reviews before I purchase goods, so I will help you come to a decision. This little gadget is just amazing. With a couple of strokes the blade, be it a knife or scissors is razor sharp again. Great investment and no more frustration when trying to cut something.

Best knife sharpener ever!”
QMG! Watch your fingers when you have used this little beauty. Now this is what I call a sharpener. I bought this to replace my Anolon Universal Sharpener when it broke. This is the best ever!

Good and Bad”
I bought my first of these knife sharpeners several years ago and I thinks its a fantastic little gadget. I bought a second a couple of years ago and the sharpening end fell out. The first is still going strong so maybe there was a change in the manufacturing process. I'm about to buy two more so I hope they are like the original. Lose a star for the loss of quality but otherwise a great knife sharpener!!

No more blunt knives!”
I've always been useless at sharpening knives and tried many different sharpeners all to no avail. Now thanks to this little gadget I can keep all my Sabatier knives sharp and was so impressed I bought a second one for sharpening my garden tools which it does equally well.

Swiss Knife Sharpener”
by Frederick Warren
Initially an excellent sharpener. Unfortunately the actual sharpening part fell out after a couple of years' use. At the price I would have expected a longer life. Hence, what should have been 5 stars for performance is downgraded to 2 stars for lack of longevity.

As a carpenter, gardener and all round handyman I am always having to sharpen tools. After years of fiddling around with various different sharpeners I was recommended to this one by a fellow gardener. He said it was the best and I have to agree with him entirely! I can only imagine that the reviewers who have been anything less than delighted with this sharpener were very unlucky or not using it properly. I have sharpened kitchen knives, chisels, secateurs and more and found it to work perfectly with a minimum of effort and fuss. I cannot recommend this highly enough and every Boy Scout should have one!

I have to agree with Mr Winters but for different reasons. The end of my sharpener chipped off without my noticing. I continued to use it and over time ended up with knives which were all serrated...none of them were when I started using the sharpener, though. Very disappointing. I then bought another sharpener from Lakeland...useless for very different reasons...more of that attached to the sharpener in question! This sharpener was good until it broke - hence the two stars.

The only knife sharpener I have found that really works. Excellent at maintaining edge on my Sabatier knives - recommended!

Was really looking forward to receiving this based on the two reviews. Well, following the instructions, I have managed to dull two knives with it. Had to bring them back with my diamond steel. Tried again. And again. And again. This thing blunts them quicker than a glass chopping board. Absolute, total rubbish.

This is the one!”
I've spent a fortune on knife sharpeners over the years, but this is the only one that actually works for me! Very easy to get a knife back to the level of 'like new' sharpness.

Nifty little gadget”
I have tried so many knife sharpeners, only to be disappointed....well Lakeland have come up trumps with this product. It is small and lightweight, but incredibly robust. I have used it to sharpen all my Global knives, secateurs, gardening knife, needlepoint scissors - everything comes up as good as new. I would recommend this to anyone that wants something that really works and will last!
