5  Works beautifully , January 27, 2019
Posted By: Jon

This is a wonderful addition to a sharpening kit. The base is very stable over my sink and eliminates the mess and makes cleanup easy. Other reviews complain about the screw to secure the two pieces. I just leave mine locked in place to the size of my sink and I haven’t fiddled with it since. I use a rubber stone holder on top of the plate to elevate the stone a bit and it’s a very secure setup.

Like the product and it does what it is supposed to. The sharpening stones stay put. I wish it collapsed all the way. Would make it easier to store. Also it was a bit high priced but the shipping was included so that made it worth it for me

This unit is built very well. It provides a stable platform that does not wobble. Both ends have some sort of plastic coating that provides good friction against porcelain sinks, so the unit won't shift from side to side. Prior to investing in a sink bridge, I sharpened on the counter, which worked OK but made a huge mess. With the sink bridge, the mess is contained and easy to clean up. It also makes it easier to keep the stones wet/clean.

2  Quality Materials, Poor Design, November 10, 2017
Posted By: Steve Pellegrino - verified customer
3 people found this review helpful

Built very well, the stainless stays rigid when locked and the rubber pads helps with slipping. However, the arm's tightest setting is still too big for my sink, and the thumb screw used to lock the stones in place is too small and very difficult to tighten easily with a stone on the surface. I will have to customize mine to solve these issues, I wouldn't recommend this product based on the price and poor design.

Measurements are clearly listed in the copy on the item page. If you read them and measure before you purchase you won't have a problem.

5  A luxury necessity, June 22, 2017

Held back ordering because I thought this would be a luxury item. As it turns out, some of the best money I have spent. I debated if I should order another stone or this bridge, I made the right choice. Amazing how much easier this makes life. Quality is very good, very sturdy, able to handle all the pressure I ever use while sharpening. The only caveat is as with all stamped metal items, there are some sharp edges but that took all of 15 min. with a file to remedy. One of my concerns was how well the bridge would hold stones without slippage. I use a stone holder and was happy to find with that and the back stop, there is no movement. All in all, if you're thinking about getting one, I would highly recommend you go for it.

Another great Naniwa product! Fits our sink perfectly and makes cleanup easy. I use a universal stone holder on the bridge to raise it closer to me. Great service from CKTG as usual.

There have been many times I could have saved myself hours of 'sharpening' if I had spent a few minutes 'tuning' a blade. But setting up my sharpening station takes time; all the tubs and water bottles and STUFF. So I gave up on the delusion that I was ever going to make myself something like this bridge and spent 60 bucks more on my multi thousand $ knife obsession/collection, which includes all my Japanese woodworking tools. I adjusted the bridge for my sink, which is now the 'tub'. I lay the stone on the bridge and turn on the faucet; my splash and go stones are ready in a minute or two. A quick hosing with the faucet when I finish the quick tune-up and everything is ready to dry and stow quicker than it takes to describe it. I keep the bridge, ready to go, on the window sill above the sink. It looks right at home there. I can now do a quick tune-up in about 5 minutes - start to finish. Just spend the 60 bucks and let it change your life. The only other way 60 bucks can make this much difference is buying roses for ....

I originally used an old cutting board as a sink bridge, and my fun in sharpening went way up once I got this! I did have to cut off some of the sliding part for the bridge to fit in my sink, but I have had no problems at all since, and have spent dozens of hours sharpening on this. It is a great design, sturdy, and easy to use. It is very light, so I take other places where I need to sharpen knives for other people. Great accessory for sharpening!

First, this is a well-made, highly functional item. I really like design, the sheet metal used and the workmanship. Stores easily under the sink, sets up fast and tears down fast. I like the way the rubber cushions my sink.If I had to quibble, it would be about how difficult it was, at least initially, to fiddle with the adjusting knobs. But, I remembered a pack of SS washers in my toolbox. I put 3 under the block clamp length adjustment knob and now it can be located and adjusted effortlessly. The backstop height adjuster knobs got a washer each when the backstop was moved into functional position from shipping position and are now an easy grab. Knew it would fit my sink by about on the short end before I ordered, so no issue there.The Naniwa Sink Bridge, with the washers in place, rates 5 stars all day long for its serviceability and robust durability. It really steps up the sharpening game for me because Im able to sharpen right at the sink. Set up a slow drip on one end of the stone and just focus on getting an edge sharp. Just what I wanted!

This is a very good basic sink bridge. It is reliably constructed and offers very good support, even under firm pressure. It has a good range of adjustability, but it won't secure some smaller stones like the King combo stone and I'm not confident in how it would secure irregular natural stones. I wish the lower securing slider were able to move up about an inch further and the part that contacted the stone were wider. Also, the securing knobs are all underneath so whenever you switch between stones you will need to reach under there and loosen/tighten stuff.The Tojiro addresses both of these concerns, but it is twice the money.

The Naniwa sink bridge makes clean-up a snap! This is one of the best gadgets around if you love to sharpen freehand, but hate the mess and clean-up! Nice sturdy construction will assure years of use. I wish I had gotten one of these babies years ago!

I really like this device. It makes clean up so easy, and it also makes it very easy to keep your stone wet. It just required some modification to fit my sink.

What a difference! Working on the stones over the water in the sinkmakes the sharpening a pleasant time instead of a messy chore. I startedwith a 2X4 over the sink. The Naniwa is stable, compact and holds thestones making it easier to obtain the edge I want. The bridge seems tobe made to accommodate rather large sinks. No problem, I reduced thelength by a couple of inches.Love it.

Perhaps the sinks in the places I live in are small, but I found this to be a bit too long to fit comfortably in my sink. Perhaps I should have measured...Otherwise a great product
