Swifty Sharp Review

Swifty Sharp doesn’t work – Alan who bought Swifty Sharp complained in his review that the unit he received just didn’t work. Initially he thought that it was an issue with the battery and inserted new ones again. He followed the instructions to the T but realized that the unit didn’t come on at all. While going through the product closely he figured that there was a loose grinding stone and that means there is no way it can sharpen anything in any case.

Cheaply made – Roy who used Swifty Sharp exposed in his review that it is poorly made and is nothing more than piece of junk. The cheap plastic stone that is used here pops out quite easily.

Doesn’t sharpen – Alex who reviewed Swifty Sharp revealed in his review that he had big expectations from it after seeing it work so well on TV. But in reality he found out that it didn’t sharpen anything at all. It might have some advantages for beginners but that’s about it. The plastic handle of the product is loose and the spindle rotates but the stone doesn’t. He was quite annoyed also because if he wanted to return it he would have to pay shipping cost that was equal to the cost of the piece of crap.

Problems galore – Lens who bought Swifty Sharp exposed in his review that there are too many problems with the product.

  1. I ordered this Swifty Sharp and It’s a piece of junk that didn’t work, the start button would not click on, I send this back and received another one with another problem that didn’t work and the same with the 3rd time, I’m still waiting for a refund after 4 months. Seems like everything that they sell on ” As Seen On TV ” is a piece of crap, everything looks good on TV as advertise but once you get it in your hands It’s a different story, should have had the knives sharped by a professional or just bought some new knives, i would have been better off

  2. If it look too good to be true, etc. Swifty Sharp is like something to be won at a carnival. It’s a piece of junk.

  3. Too late. Already brought one but i will be returning it as soon as it get’s here. I think from now on i will be researching things that they advertise on saleavision. Those infomicals that they put on tv late at night.

  4. I was about to purchase a Swifty Sharp because my kitchen knives are in desperate need of sharpening. After listening to reviews, I will not be making a purchase. Thank you all for your comments and warnings on this product. It’s a true statement you get what you pay for.

  5. Swifty Sharp is junk the stone is loose on the plastic spindle. The spindle rotates and the stone mostly does not. Junk Junk Junk.

    Don’t waste your money for the fact the shipping to send back as the shipping to purchase is equal the the Junk 14 dollars and taxes.

  6. I got a SWIFTY SHARP. Does NOT sharpen my knives.
    Also, shortly after I place my order I received a call from some marketing company trying to sell me another product. I am on a NO CALL list.
    So, not only is SWIFTY SHARP a rip-off, they also sell your information to others. This may or could lead to scammer trying to sell me stuff.

    • I got the high pressure call before the item even shipped.If you don’t adamantly refuse this offer for extra stuff, your credit card will automatically be billed $29.95 per month.

  7. I also saw the tv commercial and yes it sounded too good to be true so I decided to google about what others thought and sure enough it’s a hype so I decided to keep my money in my wallet……. thanks for all the reviews.


  8. I bought one and it doesn’t sharpen any of my knives. It requires 4 batteries so one would have to be buying batteries monthly. I just threw mine away and I’m done buying anything from Television advertisements. Never again. I need a knife sharpener so I will go to Home Depot or Lowe’s to buy one I can plug into the wall.

  9. Received Swifty Sharp and it didn’t work; received second one and it didn’t work. Still waiting to hear how this is going to be resolved.

  10. After watching the commercial it sounded like a good deal. But I decided to check online if their was any complaints. Check first to save money not a good deal. Shipping/ handing charge to high.forget

  11. the s/h, of$11.90 is just way too much. being it is battery operated unit, ( no motor) the sharpener really can’t weigh so much which would raise the cost, this could be sent 3rd class, which would be more than half the s/h cost. don’t need it overnight.

  12. I was ready to buy until I saw the high shipping charge. I’ll wait until I see it at Amazon or BestBuy. That’s just too much.

  13. Hi; I got on the website to order one until I saw the $11.90 shipping charge.! No Thanks.!
