Thanks. Ya those are 2 of the 4 I was looking at. Bulbhead is the Amazon seller, both are Teletrend. The other 2 of the 4 by Brod and Taylor are a lot more expensive $59ish for the regular and $119ish for the deluxe. The deluxe of both brands appear to use metal framing to support the sharpening arms and rods.

Wife has been using an AccuSharp on her Kitchen knives and the sharpener blades have badly gouged the edge of the knives. I have oil and soap stones I've used in the past to sharpen knives, but I no longer have the patience to sit still long enough to use them.

Reading through the topic there is mention that they are somewhat expensive (Brod and Taylor?), but not the most expensive and another mention referring to seen in TV commercials (Teletrends?) and inexpensive. Do these work? Does one work better over the other?



here is a link to the one we use ===> https://www.amazon.com/Edge-Kitchen-Knife-Sharpener-BulbHead/dp/B077JHX5M1/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1545185100&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=Bavarian+Edge&psc=1 .... I don't use it on my best knives but it performs well .... don't have anything else to compare it to because its the only one I've tried.... if I was to order another I'd probably upgrade to the Deluxe model ===> https://www.amazon.com/Official-Bavarian-Sharpener-BulbHead-Sharpens/dp/B0794C8NFV/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1545185100&sr=8-2-spons&keywords=Bavarian+Edge&psc=1

Thanks for the Fiskars pointer. Good to see it uses rods and not blades. I also have stones of various sorts for sharpening, but seldom use them anymore. Gotten to be too much effort for me to use them.

B00KYADH42 , a couple of swipes and it's back to razor sharp,in order for the pocket sharpener to work properly it should be used on knives that haven't been freehand sharpened, once the angle is changed it takes a while for the set angle rods to bring back the edge, at home I have a pair of ceramic rods on a block of wood that take a little longer but also do a good job but are a little harder to use,throughout the years I've collected several oil and water stones that seldom see any use except for my chisels and shop knives which require different angles.
