No more dull knives!
In our house we have pink jobs and blue jobs, which basically translates as: if I feel like doing it, it’s a pink job (ie: me, the matriarch of the house, will get off her backside and do it) and if I don’t feel like doing it it’s a blue job (ie: I pass the buck over to The Husband).
Knife sharpening has always been a blue job in our household, until now.
Regular readers will be aware that I was recently sent the best knife ever – a Global Ni cook’s knife available exclusively in the UK from the Steamer Trading Cookshop.
Not a week later (thank you universe!) the world’s best knife sharpener landed in my postbox. Thank goodness too because although I’ve silently declared knife sharpening a blue job (I might have forgotten to tell The Husband) it does sadly get neglected, and my gorgeous Global Ni was going to end up sitting next to a row of dull kitchen knives on my magnetic knife strip, destined to only be sharpened when a friend of mine makes his six-monthly house visit for a cup of peppermint tea, spots my dull knives and sits there at my kitchen table, sipping tea and my sharpening knives.
Knife sharpening has become a pink job!
This little gadget from Any Sharp really is a crackin’ little knife sharpener. Its Power Grip suction cup base firmly fixes to any flat surface, and three or four light pressure slides later you’ve got a super sharp knife again! There is no worry of slicing the end of your finger off, no worry that you’re using the wrong angle, simply slide though the tungsten carbide sharpening edges set at the optimum knife sharpening angle and sching! – sharp knife!
This knife sharpener will work on nearly every knife too – from bread knives to hunting knives and all your cooking knives.
Any Sharp also make a really nifty multi 5 in 1 scissors – which I put to test during a glamping weekend recently. With curved tempered steel blades and a comfortable (and wide enough to be left or right handed!) grip, this knife is a pleasure to use. It’s not just a pair of scissors though, it’s a bottle opener, a wire stripper, garlic crusher and nut cracker too!
These scissors now have a prime place on my kitchen tool rack.
The Any Sharp Knife Sharpeners retails at RRP £17.49 while the 5 in 1 scissors retail for £14.99
