What is it? a knife sharpener that has a suction grip to hold it securely in place

What does it claim? to be the Ultimate and World's Best Knife Sharpener!

Who tested it? Norfolk resident and owner of East Beach Catering, Cathy Carter

What Are The Instructions? Begin by cleaning an ideal smooth surface such as a glass/granite table or counter. Then place the sharpener on that clean, dry surface. With one hand, hold the sharpener down while pressing the lever to lock it in place with the other hand. Now you're ready to get to work on sharpening your knives. Gently pull your knife back in the direction of the arrow at the top of the sharpener. Running it through a few times being careful not to push the knife forward. Next just wash the knife and you're ready to use it.

Did it work? Our tester was very surprised. She says she spends about 70% of her time cutting and chopping. So a sharp knife is very important. She usually sends the 'work knives' out to be professionally sharpened and some of the other ones they try and sharpen themselves. She found the Edge of Glory did a great job on some old dull knives she hadn't used in a while. Yes she even tried sharpening a credit card like they do on the commercial and .... it work! She also really liked the suction grip that holds it in place while you sharpen. She says the compact size of it is also a plus and another reason she plans to purchase this product for her kitchen.

Cost/Availability? You can purchase the Edge of Glory at Bed Bath & Beyond for $10.99.
