Something very weird about the Amazon reviews shown here - 73%/26% 5/4 stars distribution which would imply more than a few reviews. But only 1 text review shows up on the sort.
This exact model doesn’t seem to show up on Amazon at all so I’m not sure where the reviews come from in the first place. There is a somewhat similar-looking one here https://www.amazon.com/ChefsChoice-Professional-Diamond-Sharpener-3-Stage/dp/B00004S1B9 with decent reviews.
– EDIT: looking closer that one is “100%-diamond” abrasives where this is “ceramic and steel” – I don’t know enough to say for sure but diamonds SOUND $10 better to me . . .
There’s 5 reviews. You’re not required to give a text review.
The question is, how do 5 reviews equate to 73% 5 stars and 26% 4 stars? Even with really bad rounding that sounds a lot closer to 4; if the percentages are close to right the smallest number of reviews you can come up with (assuming rounding up to a full percent in either direction, which itself is not really kosher) is 19.
And, 5 reviews WHERE? As I mentioned I cannot find this on the actual Mothership website.
I always wondered if some reviews get weighed “heavier” than others based on how many reviews a users does and how thorough they are…?
Huh. I did not know that.
Also fascinating that you could provide that link but if I search for the same make and model in the Amazon search bar I come up with nothing.
Ah, the psychological secrets of the Mothership . . .
It’s here on every page with reviews.
As to Amazon search, it sucks worse than us not having a search. It shows things they want to promote and things that appear just to have the letters in the search term.
