  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as Advertised!! Just go this today and sharpened all of knives in about 20 minutes. Knives I have had for over 30 years that were made in Austria. Regular and serrated. I did the paper test before and after sharpening. Unbelieveable difference!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Knife Sharpener We purchased the Brod & Taylor Knife Sharper over a month ago. It is quick and easy to use. I can’t believe how dull my knives really were. As an added bonus the sharpener looks like a decorative piece in the kitchen. This is going to make a great Mother’s Day gift.
