It's always fun to get a product review that involves someone from the Food Network. Someone's always got something smart to say about them. And their fan base is passionate, so it's always fun to read what have to say. Especially the part where Chef Robert Irvine says that he takes it wherever he goes.

Time to see if it's worth the hassle.

What Is Samurai Pro?

Ever used a knife sharpener? My favorites are the little ones you can use in your hand. Makes you feel all outdoorsman and tough. The common problem the Samurai Pro knife sharpener tries to solve is the issue of keeping a knife sharpener in place when you go to use it. With an adjustable bottom that vacuum seals, the device holds on tight to most surfaces. The second problem it tries to solve is to handle multiple-sized blades. That's where the value comes in. With adjustable blades, you're able to also sharpener shears and scissors and other cutting devices. And, even better, you could store it on the underside of shelves or the side of a fridge and save counterspace. But, there's only so much that can be pitched in a 2-minute infomercial.

Benefits, Claims & Features

According to, your product claims the following features and benefits:

  • use it everywhere
  • adjustable tungsten carbide blades
  • vacuum seal
  • all-purpose shears
  • cut n' cook dvd

Does Samurai Pro Knife Sharpener Work? Complaints, Frauds, Rip-Offs, Scams...

Order Process:  So far as we can tell, the order process is as smooth as a sharpened knife (at that point there wasn't going to be a place for a good pun). Saw no issues on the typical blogs & complaint sites. We call that promising.

Product Performance:  Here's where the fun starts, but it's not what you think. The first thing we found was a site that just makes fun of people on the Food Network. In this case, Chef Irvine . They brought up a good question:  does he really take it wherever he goes?

After a couple of those sites we started looking for deeper reviews. And ran into branding issues. For example, we found someone offering great pricing on some Samurai Pros sets. That caught us off guard because I can only use one sharpener at a time, but come to find out that those were for speakers . Then we saw a Samurai Pro that was 500 GB. We didn't know why one would turn a knife sharpener into 0s & 1s, but we looked (it's a harddrive for those who don't speak geek).

Otherwise, the reviews we found were fluffy and the complaints were minimal - if you could find them at all. If you hear otherwise, like always, let us know. And if you have to get ahold of them, try the info below:

Before I'd ever use a product like Dr. Ho's Back Belt, I would consult my chiropractor - who I haven't seen in awhile. What we found is that most people wouldn't take such an approach...

[Review] NutriBullet - It's Better Than Your Blender Because???? WTF?

I would swear that the NutriBullet is just a Magic Bullet with a different plastic skin and fonts & iconography. I assume that if I want to make veggie smoothies I could just use a Magic Bullet, but apparently I can't. Or something like that. I'm still looking.

This is one of those times where my grandfather bought something he wanted to see on TV and it was a great idea. I went into the garage and click the switch when I realized the light-bulb didn't look like an ordinary light-bulb.

Neutrogena SkinID [Review] - Free Skin ID Evaluation

With so many acne products out and about, on television, on the shelves, at the impulse counter, next to the Redbox and vending machines...It's enough to make one wonder as to why the competition is so fierce. Is it because no single product works well enough? Or is it because people have a hard time telling which product works for them. Maybe Neutrogena is onto something with the SkinID.
