Bavarian Edge Review
There is just something about knives and infomercials that seem to be a match made in heaven. I suppose that love affair dates back to the Ginsu Knife commercials of the 1970s, but it’s a category of As Seen on TV products that marketers and consumers alike seem to covet. Today I’m taking a look at Bavarian Edge, a spring-action knife sharpener that “flexes and contours to any blade or angle for the perfect razor sharp edge in an instant!”
There is not much to using Bavarian Edge besides simply swiping your blade between the Tungsten Carbide sharpeners a few times. The motion you use is not unlike that of regular sharpeners, although these twin sharpeners move and flex with the blade. Because it moves and adjusts with your motion, it is more forgiving as to what angle you insert your blade. To me, one of the greatest benefits is the ability to sharpen serrated knives.
Perhaps the only potential negative is that smaller, thinner blades may be harder to sharpen near the handle. Other than that, I can find little fault with the product. It sports an attractive design and a rather useful function.
If you believe the commercial, you’ll probably expect a magical knife sharpener that could turn a potato into a precise chef’s knife. In reality, however, you’ll probably find it to be a pretty good sharpener, minus the magic. It should work about as well, or maybe even slightly better, than cheaper knife sharpeners. As I stated before, however, not all knife sharpeners can sharpen serrated blades, so that is an area where Bavarian Edge shines.
Bavarian Edge is a new product and has not yet arrived on store shelves. That means you’re forced to pay non-refundable shipping, whether you like it or not. If you’re on the fence about the product, you may want to wait a few months to see if it is sold in stores. Otherwise, you could seek out an alternative with better shipping and return policies.
Although the design of Bavarian Edge may look unique, there are others like it on the market. This Brod & Taylor Classic Knife Sharpener also sports a very similar design with twin sharpeners. That item boasts an impressive 4.5 star rating among consumers online. The commercial compares the price of Bavarian Edge against this $124 electric knife sharpener, which is considerably more expensive, but also very highly rated.
