4.0 out of 5 stars Electric Knife Sharpener
The unit appears to be reasonably well made, and did a good job of sharpening some pretty old knives. One was damaged and had some 'nibbles' out of the blade. Not any more, nice, smooth and very sharp blade. Only one criticism, and that is the motor appears to be a bit weak. One knife in particular, because it was heavy-ish managed to slow it down considerably, without...

The unit appears to be reasonably well made, and did a good job of sharpening some pretty old knives. One was damaged and had some 'nibbles' out of the blade. Not any more, nice, smooth and very sharp blade. Only one criticism, and that is the motor appears to be a bit weak. One knife in particular, because it was heavy-ish managed to slow it down considerably, without pressing on the knife at all - ie just the weight of the knife. However, I have sharpened 7 knives very well, and would have paid much more than the purchase price of the sharpener to get them done, and I still have the sharpener. I would recommend this product.

The grinding wheels will remove quite alot of your knife if you do not take care. So make sure you just pull through quickly enough and avoid pressing down on the knife. So go easy and you will have success. You do need a steady hand and you must follow the instructions!! A good idea to just hone off on a fine wet or dry stone after grinding to remove snags of steel.

I have just recieved the habit knife sharpener through the post this morning and set about sharpening my very blunt knifes it was very quick to bring razor sharp edges to all my food preperation knifes and I am very impressed with the results for a sharpener at this price.Only one problem is that now I have to remember to be careful when going into the drawer where I keep the knifes OUCH!

This review is from: VonShef Electric Knife Sharpener Two Stage Sharpener - for Precision Grinding and Fine Honing Kitchen Knives (Kitchen & Home)
When pressure is applied to knife duriing sharpening, the sharpening wheels virtually come to a halt. Indicating the motor is not powerful enough. A little disappointed to say the least.

This review is from: VonShef Electric Knife Sharpener Two Stage Sharpener - for Precision Grinding and Fine Honing Kitchen Knives (Kitchen & Home)
This item didn't work out for me and had to be returned. Followed the instructions to the letter, but it failed to improve the sharpness of any of my knives which are from different brands. In fact in some cases I think it made them worse. It does shave off a noticeable amount of metal from the knife but the fine grinding didn't seem to make any difference. The item is heavy so return postage costs are expensive. The seller had a limit on returns postage charges so I ended up out of pocket.

Sort of sharpens your knives, but does seem to struggle at times. If you take your time, and dont mind using a Steel afterwards to tidy up the edge, its okay.
