Praxis: Smith’s PP1 Pocket Pal Knife Sharpener Review
The Smith’s PP1 Pocket Pal is only $7.99 on Amazon, which to me is a no-brainer. Being able to always keep my knives sharp is easily worth eight bucks. If you’ve ever tried to chop tomatoes with a dull knife I’m sure you’ll agree with me. Of course, there are more expensive sharpening solutions and complete systems out there that certainly do a better and finer sharpening job than the PP1 Pocket Pal, and by all means invest in a more extensive sharpening solution if you have a lot of knives and tools you want to keep sharp for the long term. But if you’re just getting started then you get a lot of bang for the buck with the PP1 Pocket Pal. I’ve tried other sub-$10 sharpeners, including some other Smith’s products, but out of those this one is my favorite.
