Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Fortunately i was chosen to do a review on one so i thought okay here is my chance to see how this works!!
The Sabi Chop seems to do just fine, but the limited number of reviews concerned me, and the fact that the actual "blade" was plastic and not metal.
Then I figured oh well i did not pay for it so might as well give it a shot. At the very least I'd be able to weigh in on one side of the issue or another.
It arrived today and the very first thing I did was to test it. I split three tablets. None broke, all split more or less in the center and the cutting action is very easy. I chose to press down on the lid with the palm of my hand, with the Sabi Chop on the kitchen counter top.
A loud crack indicated each successful operation - so loud I was worried, but the tablets were neatly split.
It was easy to position the tabled so that the middle was approximately under the blade - there is no mechanical adjustment or alignment - but I figure the unevenness will balance out over the morning and evening dosage, right? :) Not that I'm off by much, I'm sure.
The place to position the tablet is a soft, grey "rubber" or plastic bed with an indentation. It is oblong or oval in shape and works well for my tablets. If you have round tablets, then if they are larger than about 15mm in diameter, they will not fit in the position under the cutting edge.
Now as for the blade, if one can call it that. It seems of a good quality and it is shaped in an edge, but not an overly sharp edge. It looks like a blade, just a little blunter, but still perfectly able to cut my 800mg tablets with ease and without crushing the tablets.
All in all I am quite happy with this .
