Create an incredibly like-new sharp edge with this electric multi-stage knife sharpener. Safe for use with high-quality knives, the unit can restore a 15-degree edge for Asian-style knives and a 20-degree edge for European- and American-style knives. It can also sharpen fine-edge or serrated blades, sports knives, pocketknives, and Santuko and traditional Japanese-style single-bevel edges, including the thicker Deba-style blades, as well as double-bevel blades. Its three-stage system produces a perfect edge. Precise knife guides automatically position the knife for foolproof operation, while 100-percent diamond abrasives and patented flexible stropping and polishing discs sharpen, hone, and deliver a microscopically polished edge. Other highlights include a simple on/off switch, stabilizing feet, and durable construction. Assembled in the USA, the knife sharpener measures 12 by 6-1/5 by 6-2/5 inches and carries a three-year limited warranty.
When your favorite knives start squishing ripe tomatoes instead of slicing them, it's time to sharpen your blades. This knife sharpener is remarkably easy to use on both straight-edge and serrated knives. Simply plug it in, turn it on, and feed knife blades through the stages. The first sharpening stage uses 100 percent diamond abrasive disks to hone the knife's edge while the second stage incorporates polymer disks to polish and strop the edge to hairsplitting sharpness. Straight-edge knives should go through both stages, while serrated blades should only be used in the polishing stage. The internal elastomeric spring guides hold knife blades at just the right angle to the sharpening surfaces, making sharpening easy. The instructions are easy to follow, and maintenance is limited to removing the metal dust shavings from the clean-out tray once a year or so; no lubrication is necessary for the motor, bearings, or sharpening surfaces. Guaranteed not to detemper, the sharpener has a two-year warranty for home use. --Ariel Meadow Stallings
