    Grace company rotary blade sharpeners

    Does anyone have either one of these, and if so, how well does it sharpen?? The electric one is pretty pricey, but if it really works well, it would be well worth it considering how many blades I go through! Here's the link:

    I have the manual one, the true cut. It works really well.

    I have the electric one and it's not worth the money. It's doesn't sharpen to like new but does sharpen a little and some seem to sharpen better then other. My blades were pretty dull before I got this machine so maybe if one sharpened often it would work.

    Thanks, FancyFoot. Patrice does seem to recommend it. I guess I was hoping since it was electric it might make them like new again. They are sooo expensive! I get them at Walmart for almost $16 for 5 (Fiskers). Looked on Ebay, but I'm a bit afraid to buy them in large bunches then discover they weren't sharp enough. I bought blades from Harbor Freight that a lot of people said were so great and they barely cut! I usually use a blade until it starts skipping, then slap in a new one.

    I have bought blades from ebay and they were excellent. Some brands are better than others.
