The AnySharp X-Blade is a manual knife sharpener for private households. With a suction cup especially developed by the manufacturer, it attaches securely to any flat surface, guaranteeing safe handling. Its bespoke self-adjusting sharpening tool angle allows to sharpen steel knives varying from 12.5 to 22.5 degrees blade angle. Enclosed by red protective plates, the tungsten carbide blades are so sharp that even an inexperienced user, left- or right-handed, can achieve good results.

Statement by the Jury

The functional elements of the ­AnySharp X-Blade in combination with clear contours and high contrast colours yield a characteristic overall ­appearance.
