My knives were getting very dull and the highly recommended sharpener that I had was losing the battle. This one has restored them, not to razor sharp - maybe that's the fault of the knives, but to a very acceptable level for day to day kitchen use. I had to pull them through several times, especially the dullest one, but I got there. Maybe I could get them even sharper by pulling through more times.
I've used many different sharpeners over the years and have been looking for something to sharpen my set of Global knives. This was recommended by a friend and it was great! The 3 stage sharpening process really makes a difference! Highly recommended at a great price!
Out blunt knives are now slicing through tomatoes like a charm! The Carver Marvel is easy to use and it takes no time to get your knives really sharp. I am highly satisfied with this product and recommend it to everybody.
