Julia E. Chervoni "jeceasyread": I was a bit apprehensive during my first attempt at sharpening my knives but it was easy to do. Just follow the instructions and you will have sharp knives again.
Kathryn Richardson: This little 'gadget' will transmogrify the dullest, bluntest knives in your drawer into razor sharp slicers and dicers. I didn't believe it really could; I bought it because I was ready to try anything cleaner than oil and stones - even my diamond hone could not refurbish abused blades to my satisfaction.This machine fixes the problems of those ratty sharpeners on the backs of can openers, the messy and oily hones, the ineffective and tiring ceramic 'V' contraptions - and the user errors. The slots align the blade to the correct angle and keep it that way - the user just stabilizes the knife handle and keeps the blade from running through too quickly. It is that easy!The stages run from coarse grit (for horribly dull blades that you used to cut branches in the garden last summer) to extra fine (to finish the edge or re-align the blade edge after use). Even my cleaver is sharp enough to cut joints instead of bludgeoning the entire beast into submission. Best of all, it sharpens quickly; it is no longer a messy, all day chore to get sharp knives.The only down side is that the sharpener is hard to use on short blades or scissors - although it can touch up the tips of straight-edged snippers.Once you get your blades in shape, keep this machine handy so you can maintain those desirably sharp edges.You can do it!
K. Schonlau "MysteriesinStL": I purchased this several years ago from Cooking.com. This is a great little tool.The unit is divided into a 3 stage system. Stage 1 is the sharpening stage. Stage 2 is the Steeling stage and Stage 3 is the Stropping and Polishing stage. Sharpening is accomplished by pulling a knife through the left and right angle guides in Stage 1. Honing the blade will cause a burr which is then removed by pulling the knife thru Stage 3, again pulling the knife thru the left and right angle guides. This stage kind of dresses or finishes the knife. These 2 wheels are the most used.Stage 2 is for re-steeling or resurfacing your knives. This is the least used wheel in my kitchen but is used to recondition a knife that appears to be dull all the time or doesn't hold an edge. This wheel is made out of specially hardened steel for this purpose as it reestablishes the microstructure along the steed edge of the knife.One can also resharpen serrated knives in this sharpener. You cannot sharpen scissors with this tool.Sharp knives are essential to a cook so I readily recommend this device. I use it on my Henckel knives and have not been disappointed.
L. A. Kane: Nothing beats a good whetstone, but you need to not only know how to use one correctly and hold your blade at a very precise angle, but you also have the time to do it right. I originally bought the (much) cheaper two-stage Chef's Choice sharpener which was great for quickly and accurately honing cheap kitchen knives. I've even used it on machettes, anything with a flat grind can be sharpened with these things...Since upgrading to high-end Shun knives, however, I was uncomfortable with the amount of metal the old one removed and the rough finish it left. After heavy daily use, a manual honing rod simply isn't always enough to keep your blades razor sharp so you'll either need a whetstone or a mechanical device. Dull knives not only work poorly, but they are dangerous to use as well. I've tried the Lansky rod system but it's very hard to hold certain knives in the clamp, which also leaves scratch marks. Not an acceptable solution for $125 plus blades. Sooo, I've upgraded to this device to supplement my whetstone.This one costs three times as much as the two-stage model, but it works at least three times better. Gradations between the hones is excellent and the third wheel leaves a nice smooth finish. After the initial sharpening you'll probably never use the first one again on any given knife but it's nice to have available. The guides work very well too, helping you maintain a consistent, accurate grind. The down side is that you cannot sharpen hunting knives, daggers, or other blades with a diamond grind or large center spine. Anything flat-, tapered, or hollow-ground works fine. Be cautious not to remove too much material with repeated use though--the diamond hone wheels are very quick and efficient, sometimes more so than you'd expect... They seem to hold up quite well over time too.All in all I'm glad I bought it. Still need to do things manually from time to time depending on the type of blade and how delicate I need to be, but this really is a top of the line sharpener. Recommended.
laura: I bought this sharpener about 6 years ago. it is still going strong and i have not had the slightest bit of trouble with it. I recently sharpened several knifes for three people. in doing so, they have had me order them all one. I wish I could have made a commission from selling them! if you love having a sharp knife that you can use, stop wasting your money on cheap pieces of crap and buy this one!
