Simple, Inexpensive and Effective
Our favorite utility knives receive heavy use and some abuse with multiple knives being stored in a single tray in a knife drawer. Up until recently, the most frequently used knives were regularly sharpened by a professional service.
I had used manual knife sharpeners before without much success. They seemed ineffective even after multiple sharpening sessions. Fortunately, America's Test Kitchen had favorably reviewed the AccuSharp and I decided to give it a try.
The AccuSharp Knife Sharpener was first used on a heavily (ab)used 9" utility knife with a number of nicks in the blade. This knife is NOT a fine cutting implement although it is a favorite and frequently used because of its size and weight.
A single pass of the AccuSharp demonstrated it to be fairly aggressive at removing knife blade metal. The knife blade is quickly brought to a wedge shaped cutting edge. The side/edge of the blade where metal is removed appears rough when viewed under a magnifying glass. Approximately 12 passes were necessary to bring this very dull and dinged knife back to a sharp cutting edge.
In use, the newly sharped knife is now much more effective at cutting carrots, cucumbers, onions and even tomatoes. This knife is a pleasure to use again.
Because the AccuSharp is aggressive at removing metal, I would not use it on my fine kitchen cutlery but for bringing everyday utility knives back to life, the AccuSharp is an excellent choice and very reasonably priced.

I first used these on fishing knives. Then tried them on on more expensive 0kitchen knives.. they are no substitute for machine sharpening and re-beveling. but for in-between sharpenings, this gizmo is tops. cheap, too.7 of 7 users found this helpful.

This is the best and easiest to use knife sharpener. It's not fancy. It just works exceptionally well. Try it. You'll like it.2 of 2 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
It worked okay, but I would like to have known the angle of the blades. I did not see it labeled anywhere.
I think most of my knives have an angle of about 22 degrees, but the angle of the sharpener seemed bigger.
It did a good job on my knife.1 of 1 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
