Knives scare the hell out of me. Sharpening knives is pretty much out of the question. I’m no Chao San Poi. But this fully-enclosed knife sharpener seems to be the key to precise cuts for those who only like to be near the blunt side of the blade.
Some words from the designer, Adam Clark: “Eliminates the skill and safety concerns surrounding traditional knife sharpening equipment. The Sliding sharpening mechanism broadens the products capacity to function with particularly dull knives. The mechanism is enclosed within the case and automatically adjusts to match the curvature of various blades.”
Take the sharpener, place the blade inside, click shut, sharpen, click open, done! The sharpener clicks apart for easy cleaning. It fits most knives. I can slice my enemy* in half with ease! *My enemy is Peanut Butter + Jelly Sandwich, whom I then consume!
According to Adam Clark, this sharpener will be available for purchase early 2009 through the design’s sponsor, Salter Housewares.
