Product Description

Save your old blunt knives, make cutting easy again!

 

Whether you're slicing meat, dicing vegetables, or carving the Sunday Roast, a sharp blade makes cutting effortless. AnySharp restores a super sharp cutting edge to blunt knife blades that have dulled with use.

Works with all your knives - even serrated blades
The unique, patented AnySharp uses tungsten carbide technology to extend the life of almost any knife. AnySharp works on virtually any knife, including expensive hardened steel knives and even serrated blades (like bread knives and hunting knives), making it unlike any knife sharpener, steel or sharpening stone you've ever used.
 

Works with all your knives, even serrated blades

(Not suitable for extremely fine-toothed serrated knives).

AnySharp is safer by design

Attaches anywhere, safe to use single handed

Plastic top protects your knife

 

 

1) Patented PowerGrip - Safer for you
The AnySharp's unique safety feature is its PowerGrip suction cup base, which attaches securely to any smooth surface or worktop without the need for any tools. In fact, it will attach to any smooth surface anywhere. You can even use it on a vertical surface like a tiled wall! Once it's attached you can sharpen any knife safely single handed - keeping your free hand out of harm's way!

2) Polymer Protector - Safer for your Knives
When your whole knife has been run through, your knife edge may touch as it exits the sharpening tools. The AnySharp has a long-lasting polymer guiding top that is softer than metal, and therefore won't damage the metal edge, making it safe for your knives too.

3) Needs only light pressure. Less chance of accidents!
With a totally blunt knife, AnySharp will hone it to a perfect angle, and remove excess metal rapidly the first time you use it. Once sharp, better results are gained by using only light pressure, and only microscopic amounts of metal are shed.


No skill required. Anyone can get great results!

The perfect sharpening angle

 

The optimum angle to sharpen a good quality steel knife is 20 degrees. AnySharp is pre-set at 20 degrees to give a perfect edge every time. Getting a consistent angle with a sharpening stone is a skilled job, but AnySharp allows anyone to get professional results without any training at all.

Once you have fixed the AnySharp to a work surface, you can sharpen knives easily and safely using just one hand. All you need to do is just gently draw the blade through the tungsten carbide sharpening edges, 3 or 4 times to restore a super sharp cutting edge.

Do remember, very little pressure is needed with AnySharp and to wipe the knife before use.


Store it easily and conveniently out of the way

Easily store in a draw

 

Since it is so small and light, AnySharp can be easily tidied away in a drawer, cupboard, or tool box when not needed. AnySharp is small enough to store in your kitchen drawer. You could even PowerGrip it to your fridge or tiled kitchen wall, out of the way yet handy when you need it.

 

AnySharp
Ecological, money-saving

AnySharp is a an eco-friendly product that makes your old, blunt knives perfectly usable again and extends their useful life. For many people, AnySharp can pay for itself in just days.



 



Directions

The handle on the top of the unit should be up. If it is down, pull it up. It is important to note that the writing on the front of the AnySharp should be facing away from you when using it. Place on the surface, and move the handle down. The suction PowerGrip will hold the AnySharp firmly in place. Just put your knife into the sharpening jaw, apply a light pressure, and pull the knife slowly towards you.
Be sure to apply only light pressure and gentle strokes as you draw your knife through your AnySharp. You are using the correct pressure if the action is smooth, and you get tiny metal filings coming off the knife. If you get no filings at all, or the motion is jerky or sticky, adjust the pressure to suit. The knife edge always faces away from you, and your hands are never near the cutting edge at any time.

    This sharpener works extremely well on the standard kitchen knives and scissors that I've used it on. Do not be worried by other reviews saying that large amounts of material are removed from the knife when sharpening it. It's true that the first time you use this sharpener with a knife, a visible amount of material may well be removed if the shape of the knife does not match the shape of the sharpener. However, when using the sharpener again on the knife the amount of material removed is so little that you can hardly see it. On that basis I do not believe that using this sharpener would reduce the lifetime of a knife, and that if the rest of the knife remained in good condition the blade could still remain sharp and usable for many years.

    I'm not an expert in knife sharpening, nor somebody who is particularly interested in the business. I find this knife sharpener simple, quick and easy to use -- the result is a sharp knife with minimal effort.

    Excellent product, keeps the blades you use it on razor sharp, be aware that light pressure gives a better result than heavy pressure when sharpening the blades.

    Colour Name: Classic Verified Purchase
    Purchased one of these sharpeners and at first the results were brilliant. Knifes stayed sharp for a long time and only needed an occasional blip to keep them tip top. However after a few months all the knife blades are showing signs of a serrated edge where the edge seems to just be poorly sharpened. A year on and I'm buying myself a new set of knives AND sharpener, my knife edge resembles a ploughed field!

    Worse off is off the back of my initial impressions of the device I stupidly recommended it to family members, and even got it as a gift for a friend. We are ALL now reporting the same problems. Essentially our knives are ruined!

    Now I believe the effects can be limited by lubricating the sharpening stones before each sharpen with say cooking oil. However, my confidence is blighted and I'll be looking to purchase a different sharpener.

    This added after using the product for a month or more: 13 April 09: I am not saying don't buy this tool; if your knives are really bad it will work fast to get an OK V that seems really sharp. Now you have that V, you need to keep it, that is what a sharpening steel does without grinding or as with this gizzmo cutting loads of metal away. Try this, see how much swarf (metal shavings) are produced with this. It takes little time to loose 1/128th of an inch to a 64th/inch of metal/your blade, that's approx 1mm. Measure your knifes depth. If it is about 1.5 inch you will make it disappear after 64 to 125 sharpenings. Your knife is then knacked. Sharpen your knife every time as one should to keep the edge as the pros do, your knife will be gone pretty soon. lesson, use the right tool for the job at the time. Use this when you haven't kept the edge with a steel, not often if you like your knives. Better still, use a sharpening steel or Taylors Eye Witness Classic Chantry Knife Sharpener on every use and you will have your knives sharp for life and as good as new...original review follows.

    I have to agree with the comment others have made that with so many ad like glowing reviews one has to wonder how many are generated by the company marketing this product. Add to that the slagging review for NEW KNIFE SHARPENER [] which is almost certainly the same product, or someone should be getting sued for patent infringement.
    OK a product review. I got this today and it uses the same technology that has been around for decades, most likely carbide blades set at an angled `V'. The suction system, again a take from old tech works and is a good redeployment of this idea.

    Without wanting to just repeat what everyone else has said about this product, it works and more importantly it gets quick results, it has a great little suction-cup attachment feature, and its small and neat. BUT...
    I believe this device has its place; when a knife gets so blunt that you can no longer sharpen it with a steel, you can use this gadget to bring the edge back and then hone it with a steel.
    Otherwise you will end up with a sharp edge that doesnt last very long.
    One minor problem I found with it is that it sometimes tended to make my knives one-sided (sharper on one side than the other), this is not an issue as you can correct it with a steel.
    So yes, I would recommend you get this device, but not instead of a sharpening steel, I believe you need both to achieve a perfect result.

    Bought this after the good reviews as I had just purchased a new set of global knives.
    Firstly the good points - It's a lot smaller than it looks on the picture, tiny in fact. The suction pad works a treat, shouldn't slip and cut yourself. Really seems to sharpen well, also on serrated blades, which is not that common. Then the bad points - this was £5 more for the silver than the blue which annoyed me somewhat. Then there was the issue on smaller blades you couldn't get the knife that close to the sharpening blades so not all the knife was sharpened. Finally DO NOT USE THAT OFTEN - it seems to remove quite a lot of metal, so only use if your steel isn't doing the business anymore or on older cheaper blades. 4 stars for effectiveness and design.
