Rated 3 out of 5Â by RichD works great but doesn't last
I found this sharpener easy to hold and use. I question some of the complaints about the sharpener moving during use and wonder if the problem isn't more technique related. The knife should barely have pressure applied. My initial uses gave me a perfect, sharp edge on all my knives and I loved this sharpener, having tried a half dozen others already. Unfortunately, after six months or so, I had to stroke the blades more and more to get that fine edge. After another few months, the ceramic rods seem to have worn down to the point I cannot get a sharp edge no matter how long I try so zero points for the sharpener wearing out in a relatively short time. Five points for the initial great edge provided.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mojo Awesome sharpener for those who can't use a steel!
I could never get the trick to sharpening my knives with a steel so I bought two of these sharpeners (they were on sale). It works like a charm! ANYONE can sharpen a knife with this! NOTE: Be sure to put it on top of a cutting board so that when you draw the knife through the sharpener the tip will sometimes strike the cutting board and therefore not nick your countertops!!! I have subsequently purchased two more since I have three grown kids who don't have a decent sharpener. Can't go wrong.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Snowdog Not the quality I'm used to from Kohl's
Over-priced for something constructed of plastic. Poor performance. Awkward to use. Ineffective and I tried it on several straight edged steak knives. Also cannot be used for serrated edges. Returned the next day. The diamond dusted rod shaped sharpener is the same price and far more effective.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mudbone This product was not what i expected
The sharpener was not convient to use so i returned it to the local store.
Having a local store to return things to was a Five Star plus.
So you did your part . thanks i will keep shopping at Kohl's online.
