AccuSharp! because sharp knives matter "out there", too
Posted 12 February 2011 - 09:47 PM
No electricity required -- unlike powered knife-sharpening wheels, and no skill required to get a proper edge -- unlike traditional sharpening stones. And it's <$10!
(BTW: That long, round "sharpening steel" that comes with a knife set doesn't actually sharpen the edge, it straightens a bent-over edge....which is a necessary thing, too, but not the same as putting on a new edge.)
Amazon reviewers as well as the pros at Cooks Illustrated love it.
Although this sounds like an ad, I'm not a paid spokesman for AccuSharp...just a devoted evangelist for this great product!
Ever since I got it I've taken it with me to friends' houses for food-related gatherings where a sharp knife might be necessary...it's amazing how many people spend their lives with dull knives....if you can call it living.

I've got one of those diamond stone sharpeners. I've had it for 20+ years. It will cut an edge on anything; utility knives, chisels, Henckels , etc. I use it to tune my ski edges too.
