Just spotted the Anysharp knife sharpener on Amazon, and am wondering if its just another piece of junk like so many others, or is it worth buying? I've read quite a few reviews on more expensive knife sharpeners, but the reviews are always so mixed, it leaves you in the dark as to which one is the best to invest in. The Anysharp is reasonably priced, and claims to work on all types of knives.
I have an assortment of knives, some expensive, some not so expensive, some passed down from family.
Global, Shun, Sanelli, Schwarzegger and Sohne, Swords of Spain, Barclay Forge (my fathers) and my latest, ( just had to buy because I know my son will love to use when visiting,) Guy Fieri Knuckle sandwich chef knives.
Since I have a variety of knives, I would prefer a sharpener that will take care of the lot, instead of having to buy a special sharper for certain ones. Right now I rely on my local butcher to sharpen my knives, except my Global and Shun. Those I take to a knife shop that charges $8-$10 per knife for sharpening. I'd like to do this myself and save some money, so any opinions or experience with the Anysharp would be greatly appreciated..
The some what tacky commercial for the Anysharp knife sharpener can be seen here.
