Kitchen Gadgets - A Great Knife Sharpener for under $10 (Accusharp)

Those beautiful kitchen knives you have don't seem quite so lovely when they get dull. Once in a while, you need to pull out this handy knife sharpener from Accusharp, which gets rave reviews from users! For under $10, you can get all of your knives nice and sharp again, good as new. Just sharpen your knives once or twice a year, and you should be good to chop, slice, dice, and julienne your way to culinary creativeness.

(Don't forget that every time you use your knife you should use a honing steel. Honing doesn't sharpen the knives or remove any metal from the edges, but it works to sort of realign the edge of the knife, giving you a more precise cut again. Hone every time you use the knife, and sharpen your knives only up to a few times a year.)
