I followed the instructions for this knife sharpener and used it on my steel knives. The instructions said to run the knife through the sharpener 3 times and to try a paper test to check its sharpness. I obviously had very dull knives and had to run them through the sharpener at least 10-12 times before I could pass the paper test. So, this product does work, but if you have really dull knives or if cooking is your profession it might be better to have your knives professionally sharpened.
The knife set my girlfriend and I had was on its last legs. These knives are wonderful. There's something for everything. Also love that it comes with a sharpener.
I don't use any other knives anymore. They help tremendously in all my kitchen tasks! I've got arthritis in my hands and wrists, and cutting can be very painful. The reason I try many different brands is that they do not stay sharp very long. Recently, I purchased a Ceramic knife sharpener, and I hope this can extend the sharp edge. If not, I will continue purchasing ceramic knives until they find a way to extend their sharpness. I do recommend these Knives, So far, they have held their edge fairly well.
