Electric knife sharpener review

Recommended Posts

Try your beard next ;) :D 

I got one the Aldi ones to try for $10 and its ok but nothing to rave about.

Have been using a stone of late but just can't get it right yet lol.

Aldi one is rubbish. Used it once for 30 seconds and destroyed one of my knifes. Took me ages to get it back into shape with a stone. 😡

 

I have some Wiltshire pull thru thing that does prep/sharpen/finish. Does a pretty good job on my kitchen knifes.

Yeah I've had mixed results with stones - I lack the patience and the skills to get the best out of them -

these, "almost idiot proof" electric units, are more my speed.

I dont want to cut my fingers off when reaching into a soapy sink full of water - so "almost razor" is where I like my knives to be😉

Yeah I practiced with shit knives and I'm glad I did - the spinning motion can suck the blade into the machine when you came at it from the left had side.

I managed to put a couple of divots on a 20 year old bait knife while honing my technique.

All I own are cheapish knives, that are easily replaced, so I'm willing to risk them on these machines.

The electric sharpener is by no means a finely tuned instrument - but in the hands of a skilled operator - you could probably get some acceptable results - If I ever find one - I'll get him to have a go and let you know😉

But as it stands - I'm happy with it - but I'd only recommend it to someone who hates sharpening - and is happy with lightning quick, mediocre results😉
