A dull knife can be frustrating, especially when you only have a few minutes to sharpen it. The AccuSharp 001 Knife Sharpener is able to sharpen your knives quickly and easily--you can make sure your knife is sharp enough to make dinner even if you only have a minute. The sharpener uses diamond-honed tungsten carbide to put a fresh edge on your blades, inside a safety hand grip that will keep your fingers safe during the sharpening process.

The AccuSharp 001 Knife Sharpener works equally well with a wide variety of blades, sharpening both straight and serrated blades easily. It can even be used with cleavers and other large knives if need be, as well as blades outside of the kitchen. To sharpen a knife, you simply lay it blade up on a table or counter top, holding it in place by the handle. Line up the blade with the notch on the sharpener and make two or three passes--that's all it takes to sharpen a knife with the AccuSharp 001 Knife Sharpener. The sharpener can be used for up to 10 years between blade changes. The AccuSharp 001 Knife Sharpener is $10.23.
