Whether you're slicing meat, dicing vegetables, or carving the Sunday Roast, a sharp blade makes cutting effortless. AnySharp Plus restores a super sharp cutting edge to blunt knife blades or scissors that have dulled with use.
Works with all your knives - even serrated blades
The unique, patented AnySharp uses tungsten carbide technology to extend the life of almost any knife. AnySharp Plus works on virtually any knife, including expensive hardened steel knives and even serrated blades (like bread knives and hunting knives), making it unlike any knife sharpener, steel or sharpening stone you've ever used.
AnySharp Plus does everything the original AnySharp does, plus it has a second sharpener built in for sharpening scissors and shears. The scissor sharpener is designed for plain scissors, but please note it may not work with scissors that have bevelled blades.
(Not suitable for extremely fine-toothed serrated knives).
1) Patented PowerGrip - Safer for you
AnySharp's unique safety feature is its PowerGrip suction cup base, which attaches securely to any smooth surface or worktop without the need for any tools. In fact, it will attach to any smooth surface anywhere. You can even use it on a vertical surface like a tiled wall! Once it's attached you can sharpen any knife safely single handed - keeping your free hand out of harm's way!
2) Polymer Protector - Safer for your Knives
When your whole knife has been run through, your knife edge may touch as it exits the sharpening tools. The AnySharp Plus has a long-lasting polymer guiding top that is softer than metal, and therefore won't damage the metal edge, making it safe for your knives too.
3) Needs only light pressure. Less chance of accidents!
With a totally blunt knife, AnySharp will hone it to a perfect angle, and remove excess metal rapidly the first time you use it. Once sharp, better results are gained by using only light pressure, and only microscopic amounts of metal are shed.
The optimum angle to sharpen a good quality steel knife is 20 degrees. AnySharp Plus is pre-set at 20 degrees to give a perfect edge every time. Getting a consistent angle with a sharpening stone is a skilled job, but AnySharp allows anyone to get professional results without any training at all.
Once you have fixed the AnySharp Plus to a work surface, you can sharpen knives easily and safely using just one hand. All you need to do is just gently draw the blade through the tungsten carbide sharpening edges, 3 or 4 times to restore a super sharp cutting edge.
The second sharpener built-in is for scissors. It works with almost all scissors (that don't have bevelled blades), and is just as simple as the knife sharpener, with the same type of sharpening tool.
Do remember, very little pressure is needed with AnySharp and to wipe implements before use.
Since it is so small and light, AnySharp Plus can be easily tidied away in a drawer, cupboard, or tool box when not needed. AnySharp Plus is small enough to store in your kitchen drawer. You could even PowerGrip it to your fridge or tiled kitchen wall, out of the way yet handy when you need it.
AnySharp Plus is a an eco-friendly product that makes your old, blunt knives and scissors perfectly usable again and extends their useful life. For many people, AnySharp Plus can pay for itself in just days.
The handle on the top of the unit should be up. If it is down, pull it up. It is important to note that the pointed nose of the AnySharp should be facing towards you when using it. Place on the surface, and move the handle down. The suction PowerGrip will hold the AnySharp Plus firmly in place. Just put your knife into the sharpening jaw, apply a light pressure, and pull the knife slowly towards you.
Be sure to apply only light pressure and gentle strokes as you draw your knife through your AnySharp. You are using the correct pressure if the action is smooth, and you get tiny metal filings coming off the knife. If you get no filings at all, or the motion is jerky or sticky, adjust the pressure to suit. The knife edge always faces away from you, and your hands are never near the cutting edge at any time. Full instructions are included with the unit.
