Any Sharp Pro: Knife Sharpener
Last year I bought a knife sharpener that didn’t seem to work. I then searched around on the internet for a professional person to sharpen my best kitchen knife. It seems that not many places sharpen knives any more. I found a couple of places but none were conveniently located and they wanted me to leave my knife with them for several days. I do have other knives but this is the one I use all the time. That is one of the reasons it got dull.
One day I received an email asking if I wanted to try the Any Sharp Pro. I wasn’t too optimistic but I figured I had nothing to lose.
The Any Sharp Pro attaches to your counter and stays snug until you release it. All you do to sharpen your knife is to drag it through the sharpener blades. After the first time I dragged my knife through, I saw tiny metal shards. I took that as a positive sign. I put my knife through it 4 times and tried cutting a tomato. The knife had improved dramatically. Then I did it four more times and it became a perfectly sharp knife once again. Just like magic and so easy! They do say that it works with wide tooth serrated knives as well. They require a much lighter touch. I tried to sharpen mine but no matter how much I tried, I couldn’t get the serrated blade to go through the sharpener.
I give the Any Sharp Pro 5 out of 5 stars for straight edged knives. Before I received it, I thought I was going to have to throw my knife away and buy a new one. I spent $150 on the knife so, I wasn’t too pleased. The Any Sharp Pro sells for $19-$22. To me, it’s a no brainier, keep the knife and buy the Any Sharp Pro to save it!
My superstitious mom has always told me never to give anyone a knife as a gift. It’s bad luck. However, I think the Any Sharp Pro would make the perfect gift for anyone who loves to cook! It comes in a large variety of colors.

I received the Any Sharp Pro for my honest opinion.
