I recently had dinner at a friends and he asked me to cut some veg (I can’t remember signing up to be sous-chef) but as I am such a great friend I said yes, after a few attempts with his blunt knife I asked where his knife sharpener was and to my horror he said he didn’t have one?!
It would have been easier to karate chop these vegetables with my hands rather than use his dull little knife. I have had a Classic AnySharp Pro in my draw for years now and it’s something I use on a near daily basis, with its low cost and high performance I decided to treat him to one, it comes in a wide range of colours and for a little extra you can upgrade to the Pro Edition.
The Classic Pro has been designed to work with all your knives, this includes serrated blades, bread knives for example. Constructed with tungsten carbide technology it will dramatically improve the lifespan of any steel knife and can restore a sharp edge to even the most ancient blade, the great thing about the classic is the hands-free design.
Thanks to the PowerGrip suction cup base, the Pro attaches securely to any smooth surface or worktop, once it’s attached the knife can be sharpened with your hands safely out of the way. To use the blade it is placed into the sharpening grove and simply glided all the way through, the long-lasting polymer guiding top is softer than metal, and won’t damage the metal edge.
With a blunt knife, the Classic Pro will naturally create the perfect angle and remove excess metal rapidly, once it is sharp only light pressure is needed, 3 or 4 draws and microscopic amounts of metal are shed to keep the blade in tip top condition. This sharpener is pre-set to 20 degrees, the optimum angle to sharpen a good quality steel knife at, this means zero skill is required to get this accurate edge. The AnySharp Classic Pro effortlessly sharpens your knives, it’s safe and compact design along with that wonderful low-price tag makes it a is a must have for any kitchen. RRP £9.60
