Does Samurai Pro Really Work?

The time-honored activity of cooking involves a lot of cutting. To prepare the best ingredients, it is important that your knives are razor sharp. For instant sharpening of knives and other cutting tools, there’s Samurai Pro. This knife sharpener works in three easy steps: lock it down, place then draw the blade and get cutting. It stays in place for safe sharpening with its vacuum mount that locks it down from any angle. You can use the Samurai Pro in the middle of preparing meals, whether at home or outdoors, so you can make sure that your knife and shears are kept sharp at all times. The Samurai Pro knife sharpener can help you save money because you don’t have to buy knives time and time and again. With its tungsten carbide blade, it is supposed to restore the sharpness of dull knives and get them functioning like new.

No - Knife dulls faster
1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star

As with all similar type knife sharpeners the tungsten sharping blades don’t truly sharping your knife. They actually shave off a larger amount of the knife making it actually dull faster. Anyone is better off spending the extra money for an actual sharping stone.

I used this sharpener one time and the suction cup lever broke off, and my knife actually got duller. Wouldn’t even give this as a gag gift.

As soon as we tried to clamp down the sharpener onto the counter the suction cup base cracked and broke. Cheaply made and junk.

The sharpener did sharpen knifes and scissors as advertised, but the second day- sharpening 4 knifes and 1 pair if scissors, the handle that operates the suction cup broke rendering the product useless.

No - The worst

This is the worst product I have had the misfortune to run across. Do not buy this as it does not work. It will not stay clamped down and it does not sharpen your knives. Buyer beware

No - False Advertising
1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star

I do not know why more people have not reviewed this product but it will save a lot of people from choosing the wrong product and wasting time with it. A place in town sells “As Seen On TV” products and I bought this one local to try out and was expecting something great given all the hype from the advertisements. It was a total flop. It made the “grinding” sound the instructions say the instrument makes when it is sharpening but a dull knife is all I got. I will be taking it back tomorrow. I gave it one star because I could not give it any less. Take it from me, this product is a total false advertisement.

No - Poorly Made
1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star

This is a very poorly made product that fails to do what is advertised. The middle adjustable edge keeps moving around which means that the knife edge will never get sharp. Coupled with the fact that to return it will cost me money, it will be one of those silly mistakes of buying something that looks good, but is, in fact, a waste of money. Suggest Robert Irvine distance himself from this piece of junk.
