    "Rubbish sharpener"
    Mr mangan

    27 February 2020

    Paid £24 for this several months ago to go with a RW knike from you guy's. I thought it was me, but reading the reviews this sharpener does not work. As another reviewer stated, actually blunts the blade rather than sharpens it The staff member in Bromley sang its praises. Obviously a major design of manufacturing flaw. My 23 yr old sharpner is still far superior

    Thank you for placing your review. I'm sorry to hear of your disappointment - we've sold this sharpener since 2010 and the reviews represent only a small percentage of the number sold, most are very successful for our customers. Please ensure the clear plastic guard is on the sharpener when you begin and you are holding the sharpener firmly on a flat surface. Draw the knife through the sharpener with 10-12 strokes back and forth from heel to tip of the blade, applying gentle pressure and maintaining the blade edge in continuous contact with the wheel. Wash and dry knife before and after sharpening. Other methods such as only moving the knife one way or removing the plastic guard before sharpening may hinder the effectiveness of the sharpener. I'll be in touch to help shortly.

    This is a really good sharpener. It has more weight than normal and puts a beautiful edge to a knife.

    "Knife blunter"

    Absolutely useless! Took what little edge there was on my knives off. Save your money and get something else – anything else!Even my old blunt steel works better.

    "RATHER UNDERWHELMED"
    Mr Watling

    21 January 2016

    Having read the other reviews and had this product recommended by a member of the shop staff, I was expecting amazing things from this sharpener. Bye bye hand held steel, hello re-honed super sharp knives? I'm afraid not. Plucking a dull knife out of the draw & following the instructions it hardly marked a fresh lemon. Further sharpening proved a wee bit better but nowhere near what I expected. Results for other knives were similarly disappointing. Back to the store it is then using Lakeland's excellent no quibble guarantee.

    "essential item if you value your investment in knives"
    Simon Smith

    I'm so pleased I eventually bought this sharpener having tried to make do with an old sharpening steel that was well past its best! I have two Robert Welch knives and was lucky enough to be given three Global knives that needed some restoring but given all five are quality they were ok to use.... Now, having run them all through this brilliant sharpener they really have come alive again, this accurately hones the blade to perfection with confidence that it will be spot on given the space guides the blade on to the wheel, the rubbing up and down the steel was guess work at best!!
