This handy Ceramic Sharpener is ideal for sharpening Global and Porsche knives. The two-stage process requires the ceramic wheels to be soaked in water for a few minutes before use, which enables the blade to glide through the wheels with ease.

· Ideal for those who find using a ceramic steel or wet stone difficult
· Pre-set, 2 stage sharpener for optimum results
· Perfect for all types of Global, Porsche and Asian knives
· Wheels are lubricated with water to aid the sharpening process and minimise fiction
· Also available in a grey & black combination

I bought one of these because I was tired with dragging out the whetstones each time my knives needed sharpening. I was surprised that this actually produced a far sharper blade than I could with a big whetstone set.

This version will take a knife from completely blunt to razor sharp with very little effort. You could probably do the classic Samurai silk scarf test on a Minosharp sharpened Global knife but it is a little impractical in the kitchen. A reasonable-sized global knife sharpened on one of these should drop through a tomato under its own weight easily.

One slight niggle (too small to dent the five star rating) - it does make a few small scratches on the knife blade. These are no worse than the general wear-and-tear marks they'll pick up with any moderate use and it shouldn't put you off.

If you use Global knives this is a must. Because it is so little effort, you'll keep your knives sharper and thus safer. Worth every penny.

I bought this when I couldnt find anywhere that sharpens knives anymore and saw all the good reviews. It turned out to be a very good decision as the reviews are correct. This sharpens all knives brilliantly even cheap ones. I dont have global knives but this sharpener has easily and quickly sharpened ever knife that I own. Brilliant.

I have been dithering for some time about purchasing a knife sharpener, after reading the comments of others on this particular model decided to buy.
A good decision, plus a drawer full of sharp knives!

A fabulous, easy to use and highly effective knife sharpener. This is the best I have ever owned. Forget expensive sharpening stones and those little cheap Kitchen Devil gadgets that lead you to lose your digits, this knife sharpener is effectively the only one you'll ever need.

...having now bought two of these sharpeners, I'm very disappointed by how long they last.
It seems that after a few months the sharpening wheels first become stiff, then snap. This becomes rather expensive as the spare wheels are nearly as much as to buy a whole new sharpener.
So, whilst they're working they are pretty good sharpeners, but their durability leaves something to be desired.

In under a minute a nasty old blunt knife is transformed into a razor sharp tool.
Apparently little and often is the best way to look after your knives, it's such a pleasure to use that this is no problem.

just to let anybody know that this sharpener won't work on French knives, only Japanese ones as the blades are set at different angles. Check where your knives are from....
