I usually take my Wüsthof knives to a hardware store to have them sharpened but ran out of time this week. When I was in Williams-Sonoma recently to pick up my Turkey Brine I saw this Wüsthof Edge of Counter Sharpener and bought it since it was only $9.95. I'm from the South where my father would take the knives out back with a sharpening stone and some oil that was in a thin red and white can to sharpen. Robby and I just ain't that person. LOL! Good thing we don't have to be! I used this tonight and IT WORKED SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WELL!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you don't get yourself anything this year for Christmas...get this. You'll be grateful it's in your home! My knives are as sharp as I remember them being after the pros sharpen them! IT'S MY NEW.FAVORITE.THING (Next to my Wii and Wii Fit Plus of course! ROFL!) GO ME! AND GO YOU TOO!
