This sharpener is perfect! It's easy to use, it fits in my drawer for easy and clean storage. This sharpener sharpened my oldest knife that was really dull and had never been sharpened. I was so happy to be able to cut a very ripe tomato with it today and the tomato did not fall apart from a forced knife. This is a great purchase if you are looking for a great quality sharpener at a low cost.
