What are people saying about AccuSharp?

I find that thing FASCINATING!

I have used the AccuSharp knife sharpener for years and am always amazed how such a simple, inexpensive tool does such a great job. All of my CIA trained kitchen staff use a whetstone which takes 15 minutes and lots of skill. I whip out the AccuSharp and, boom, I’m done!

As a kitchen product specialist who sells a lot of knives on QVC, I was frustrated to not be able to offer our customers a sharpener that was not only easy to use and store, but also economical. Knives must be sharpened! Imagine my delight when I discovered the Accusharp knife sharpener at our local hardware store. It had everything I was looking for in a sharpener and more — tungsten carbide blade set at a 20 degree angle for sharpening both straight edge and serrated knives, total portability and a price tag that my QVC customers can appreciate. Maybe that’s why we’ve sold over 150,000 of them in the last two years and earned a customer top rating!

I started using AccuSharp years ago. I used to use a stone and steel all the time before finding the AccuSharp sharpener. This product sharpens pretty much any knife at the perfect angle and very quickly. It only takes a couple of passes and it makes the knife like a razor. I always keep it right by my side. A few years ago, I went out and picked up a bunch of them for my family for Christmas presents. That’s what brought us to your webpage this holiday season, my wife was looking for a location near here where she could purchase one for her sister. I highly recommend the product!

My first AccuSharp just arrived in the mail today. I tried it on my dull Henckel kitchen knives, and after a few quick strokes the knife’s edge was restored to its original sharpness! I then went on a sharpening binge! Paring knives, 10 inch chef’s knives, bread knife, filleting knife, my Buck folding knife… Same quick results! Thanks again.

One of my favorite gadgets is a thing called AccuSharp, a knife-and-tool sharpener that’s a relatively low-cost gadget that I got at Ace Mart. It’s a little plastic thing that looks sort of like plastic brass knuckles. It’s very simple to use, and it keeps all my knives really sharp.

As a professional Chef with more than 20 years of hospitality experience I would like to thank you for one of the most coveted tools in my knife kit – The AccuSharp Knife Sharpener! I wish I had this tool when attending The Culinary Institute of America – it would have saved many late night hours honing my knives on a stone lest a chef instructor knock me down a grade for having dull knives. If I were trapped on a desert island and could have 3 tools, I would choose my Santoku knife, paring knife, and your AccuSharp Knife Sharpener!

I have one of your AccuSharp knife sharpeners and I find it to be the best knife sharpener I have ever found anywhere I have ever worked, the employees have been amazed with your sharpener.

I have owned and operated five food establishments in the past 33 years. Knives have always played an important part in their operation. I wish I would have discovered the AccuSharp Knife Sharpener sooner. I now have a specialty food manufacturing facility where we regularly hand slice lemons. It requires a well sharpened knife to get the task done. The kitchen workers are delighted with the ease of operation and the results from this innovative sharpening tool.

I have been cooking for 32 years, with the constant problem of how to Keep my knifes sharp. I own dozens of products – from a $1.49 stone to a $250 professional sharpener – NONE of which really work. When I found the accusharp, I threw all of the other tools away. This is IT!!! Thanks. Where can I get more? They will make great holiday gifts.
