Swifty Sharp could be junk
I just received the Swifty Sharp. The motor is so weak, it easily bogs down. The guide is misaligned so it only sharpens one side of a blade, it actually does more damage than good. The plastic catch tray that is supposed to collect the shavings, but it does not fit right. It looks nice, but I think it is junk.
Worthless waste of your hard earned money
I bought this thinking it would help solve my dull knives in my home. The stone is not symmetrical. it bounces up and down. The second grove does not even touch the blade unless you put excessive pressure on it. I am an average home user. Please do not buy this junk, it is not worth your frustration.
Do not buy this product!
This seemed easy to do and worth it when I saw it on TV, so I ordered it. I have never used it, the batteries, according to the machine itself, all go negative down. However, according to the directions, they don't. Now I am not stupid, when there are four springs on the bottom, they are all negative. The batteries wouldn't work, even according to the directions. They got so hot, you can start a fire. I am sending it back!
The blade of the knife does not fully reach the stone
Since the blade of a 10 inch knife does not fully reach the stone, the sharpening simply cannot take place. My money has been thrown away, and it's not worth returning.
Piece of crap!
This piece of junk is worthless! I called customer service and they kept me on hold for 23 minutes. When someone finally answered my call, I was so mad that I told them that they were terrible and then I hung up.
Junk comes in all shapes and sizes.
Swifty Sharp is an unadulterated piece of elephant dung. It fails to sharpen even the cheapest knife, let alone the more expensive ones. You can buy a sharpening stone for under $10. Problem solved and the Chinese don't get a nickel!
Junk and crap from China
Total junk, don't waste your money or time. Worthless crap from China.
First shame on Fox News for running this ad without any credibility, or checking on these products, that are scams to take your money. They sell 200,000 before you can blink your eyes, times $20.00, that's 4 million dollars. 24 hours a day for two weeks. You get it 2 to 4 weeks later and figure out it doesn't work as you expected. By the time you send it back, it cost as much a your paid for it, as they do not warrant their product. They have sold their allotted amount of 300 thousand or more, times 20 dollars, you can do the math. In this country you can be a thief and no one can do anything about it. It's all about the money. Fox News is the highest rated cable show, not only in US but all over the world. So money spent their makes you rich. In 2 months Fox will pull this ad off their programs, which is too late by then. If the price is too low, then chances are it's junk. Buyer be careful. I will send this to Fox News, you can count on that.
Piece of junk, waste of time, money
Dulled & nicked my knives. Didn't want scissors, they came anyway & they won't even cut paper without tearing. Received high pressure phone call for "free" coupons before "sharpener" arrived. Totally negative experience & a waste of my time. Every time I see TV ad I wish I could cut in and say "don't order".
Shoddy, Third rate construction. Sharpening stone does not rotate properly. Useless as a sharpening tool.
