Fell apart after 6 months use. The sharpening wheel is held in place by plastic pins which have failed. Also the knives were never sharpened properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by princess2 Good product
Interesting to read the varied review comments. I am very happy with this purchase - it has sharpened all my knives well and it is also useful to have a sharpener for my serrated knife.

I assumed Swiss technology would beat my standard generic knife sharpener but not at all. Granted I am in the market because the plastic part of my old sharpener is aging but the metal grinding/ sharpening part is unbeatable compare to the stone version of the Khun Rikon.
My old one has sliding steel discs and honestly my knives get practically surgically sharp thanks to it.
Save yourselves some pennies do your market research, there are better cheaper versions out there.

Perfect. Does exactly what it should do. Feels nice and sturdy. Bought this after buying another item from this brand... really impressed with the quality and performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ginger37 Does the job well
My dad was a professional cook/chef and I still have his bone handled steel for sharpening knives however there is a real knack to using it as you have to get the angle correct etc.
This takes all the effort out of it for you....I have been very pleased with the results and it is very stable and safe to use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Azbette Not for your good knives but OK for others
Whether or not you are happy with this item depends on whether you love to cook and understand the importance of good, sharp knives. Sharp is critical, you're more likely to cut yourself with a blunt knife as they are more likely to slip when they can't cut through something. So, this gadget is good to knives sharp, but at a cost. I will only use this with my cheaper, replaceable knives as I'm convinced it's caused some damage to the blade. However, I'll never use it with my Japanese knives which are too valuable to risk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wrinkley The best.
I purchased 3 of these knife sharpener, one for myself and the other 2 for two of my friend and they're just as delighted with theirs as I am with mine, they sharpen the knives to perfection just what's needed.

My kitchen Knife Block is 8 years old and the knives are used daily and have never been sharpened,was going to buy some new ones but decided to try this on the 30 day money back guarantee 1st ....... Amazed by how they now seem sharper than when they were newly bought. Definately a keeper. Had to give them all several swipes through initially but fantastic product. Well Done QVC and Khun Rikon
