Ok - now that that is out of the way Smilie

Good quality stones with an experienced hand will always be better... However it takes some practice to do and sharpening a knife that way can take 20-30 minutes... I've done it - but just don't have the patience except for one or two quality knives I have...
This will take all of 3 minutes - including cleanup and putting it away... Thus you will actually get use out of this a lot more than stones...

I read the same wirecutter article as the nivlia16... it's worth a read and is what sold me on watching the price on this... https://thewirecutter.com/reviews...ning-tool/

It's always funny to see how opinionated people are about knife sharpening.

To normal people, don't be dissuaded, this is a very popular knife sharpener and a step up from most kitchen knife sharpeners. It's all the normal cook needs to keep their knives sharp without wasting too much time and money.
It's not for knife sharpening geeks, it's for people who don't like using dull knives in the kitchen

Thanks for your comment. I need a manual knife sharper, bought it based on your comments. Question for you... Is this as good as those stones you can buy? I wasn't sure if stones are better or if they are pain in the xxx.

ummm... be careful - that's one of those Just Launched New Seller's with the item shipping from china... My experience with those is they get your credit card number and you get nothing but headaches...

But there's a chance it's legit... (.00001 chance in my mind...) Just keep an eye on your credit card bill for a while...

Yeah, been watching this since last year too. CCC did not disappoint. Smilie

I don't have a good Chef Knife yet (was hoping victo drops to at least $25). Hope this sharpener keeps our cheap knife sharp til then.

I thought I mentioned the $22 caveat in the post earlier. Anyone know how I can edit in the app? Smilie

Is it really worth spending so much over the most popular on Amazon $6 KitchenIQ sharpener?

I prefer stones. But I also sharpen my woodworking tools and razors with stones. And you can't use one of these to sharpen tools, so I didn't really have as choice.

Stones do take a little practice, but they aren't that hard to learn. If my mom can do it, just about anyone can, if they want to. But that's the question... Do you WANT to learn to use a stone to sharpen? If not, these will do well enough.

Just reserve sharpening with stones or these sharpeners for when your knives actually need it. Use a honing steel on your knives between uses, and they will stay nice and sharp for a long time.

I have the little kitcheniq one and it works great. Honestly, if you're not going to do it right, with a proper stone, why spend money on something that will just eat away the steel? Get something cheap and nasty not expensive and also nasty.

Also, please don't use this on your good knives.

Depends what kind of knives you have. That Kitchen IQ sharpener has only one blade angle and uses carbide to sharpen the knife. The Chef's Choice has both 15 and 20 degree sharpeners and uses diamond to sharpen.

I would say if you don't really care about your knives or don't spend too much time in the kitchen then get the cheap one. If you have decent knives but aren't quite ready (or don't feel like) to learn how to use stones then this one is better.
