A Sharpener That Works But Not Quite As Well As Others
With several parts, this sharpener looks a bit like Rube Goldberg device and functions reasonably well. Its heavy duty black-finished steel frame (1.14 pounds), rubber non-slip base, and thumb grip make it very stable. The adjustable blade guide can be fine tuned to sharpening angles of 20˚, 25˚, and 30˚. Double sided 325 grit diamond rods and finishing steels allow you to sharpen and hone both sides of your blades at once. The fancy package includes an instructional DVD, and the unit is easy to use and works quickly. However, the resulting blade sharpness is slightly less than average. Warranty: Three years.
Tomato and onion: Easily sliced but difficult to get really thin slices, the onion took a fair amount of pressure
Carrot tops: Removed with one swipe
Foam peanut: Cut a jagged slice, then a nice thin one
Paper: Sliced cleanly twice, then the third one ripped
