It's often said, and it's true, that the most dangerous knife you can use is a dull knife. A good sharp knife can make standard preparatory tasks much safer and less laborious. You say, "Well, that's a good point (no pun intended), but who has time to deal with all that sharpening and honing?!" Let's face it, knife sharpening is a major headache. Well, for me it used to be a headache.
Allow me to introduce you to the Warthog V-Sharp. This odd looking contraption makes quick work of knife sharpening and honing. It will give you a scary sharp edge with almost no effort. Rather than bore you with a bunch of my diatribe, I'd highly recommend that you watch the short videos that explain how the V-Sharp works. If you can slice a tomato, you can have sharp knives in almost no time.
To give you an idea of how well this thing works, I walked around a recent local BBQ competition demonstrating the V-Sharp to many of my fellow competitors. I sharpened eight knives in about 20 minutes, and that included walking and talking time.
If you value sharp knives and your time, get a V-Sharp.
