Gentlemen, appreciate your good suggestion.
I wrote a while ago that I still have difficulty sharpening a knife with the stones I have, and even with one pull-through sharpener. Glad to have read your chat about the Bavarian Edge last Thursday am.
I went to Lawrence, KS that same afternoon to take my daughter out for a birthday dinner. I got into town a little earlier, so while waiting for her to finish her work day, I walked some aisles in her wally world. Thought I'd see if they had one of the B.E. sharpeners on the shelf, and they did. I liked your positive comments about the product, so brought one home.
Wow! My 5" stainless steel Cuisinart kitchen knife is a sharp slicer once again!
It was a gift several years ago from this same birthday daughter, and I've used it a lot. It used to slice off meat fat easily, and has chopped piles of veggies. Lately, it is quite faded since I almost daily cut up, slice & dice veggies....actually breathe in green peppers!
Anyway, for lunch today I cut open a green pepper, knowing this knife would have a tougher time getting through the outer skin. Then out with the B.E. sharpener. With just four or five pulls through the sharpener, the green pepper turned into soft butter!! This success deserves another "Wow!"
I'll be bringing back quite a number of my older kitchen knives with this tool. I agree with what you both have said --- I'll also not use it on my Victorinox blades or my Buck 119. As needed, I will leave those to a professional.Thanks much for the good tip on this too
l.............I'm a happy camper with it
, and getting it at a decent price was good, too!The Fallen Pepper and victorious Cuisinart blade

good to hear it works ..... done and did .... Amazon should have one here on Monday .... I sincerely doubt any of my good knives will ever pass through it but we have plenty of working blades that will see it from time to time
Right. My good blades won't see it either. The best knives I have at camp will. ..... They all will improve with this sharpener.
