I have the smaller leveler & at first I had no problems with it. It would cut right thru my cakes but now Im having a hard time. How can I sharpen it?? Anyone have these issues before? should i just get a new one? its not that old Ive only been using it for like 2 mos

::shakes head::

The Wilton levelers are crap. Don't waste your money. Ask for an Agbay or Christmas, even if several people have to chip in. It's the best.

Sharpen a Wilton leveler? icon_confused.gif
You might as well just get out some dental floss & cut your cake with it. icon_lol.gif

Yup, not sure how you'd sharpen it. I have a small one, and I don't see that it has an edge... just a wire.

I am currently lusting after an Agbay!

I dont' think you can sharpen wire?? They are never really SHARP to begin with actually. I just think that over time the wire loosens up and there is not much you can do about it...except buy another one OR invest in an Agbay icon_smile.gif

I do know several people who use dental floss!!!!!!!!

Yes, good tools can be expensive.

Fishing twine works too.
