Senor Zoidbergo: I've been looking for a good knife sharpener for my parents, ever since I purchased their first pair of classis Wusthof knives. I've read about the Chef's Choice in Consumer Reports, the Google BBS rooms, and all the reviews on Amazon and Epinions. So I took the plunge and ordered it.3 days after ordering (thanks for switching to UPS Amazon!) I received it, and was quite pleasantly surprised. While some people have complained about the sharpener leaving a mark on their nice Wusthof/Henckels knives, I found this to be not a problem. Yes, it does leave a mark on your knives, but the mark is barely half a millimeter tall, and hardly visible. It's a small tradeoff to make to get wickedly sharp knives without having to go to a professional to get it sharpened at several bucks/inch; it will pay off in the long run.As for the people who have had problems sharpening their knives, well no offense, but you'd have to be blind, and/or a moron to not know how. The instructions are written plainly and clearly, and easy to follow, with advanced tips for specific types of foods.I do have one question- Chef's Choice manufactures a cheaper 3-stage sharpener, I wonder how good that one is. Probably not diamond coated though.Well, all in all, an excellent buy. The machine looks sturdy and strong, and it's such a relief to have a home sharpening kit. I could never properly sharpen with a whetstone and spindle-thingy.
Spingrinder: I used to use a Spyderco sharpener which provides great results, when used correctly. This does almost as good of a job at a fraction of the time. I don't know enough to tell whether or not it is doing any long term damage to the knifes or not but it does put a very nice cutting edge on my Wusthof's.
Ted G. Seel: Best sharpener I've ever owned. Gave used it to bring back some pretty dull blades to sharper than they were when I bought them
T. Teater: I used this on a number of US made Chicago cutlery (high Carbon steel) which were very dull. Forget 2 passes, after about 20 passes, there was still little edge. After 20 or so minutes of work, I finally got a barely usable edge. Maybe if you start with a relatively decent edge its OK but if youare starting with a real dull knife, you will not get anywhere in "a couple of passes."
Vintage 1 Lady: Sharp Knifes at Last!!This knife sharpener was written up in "This Old House" magazine's current issue.It is everything the article says it is, it works great. My knifes are sharp, sharp likethere were when I was a kid always cutting my fingers when doing the dishes. Myfather and grandfather were butchers by trade. My grandfather made Italian Sausageand sold same in his deli. My dad tried to teach me how to sharpen knifes but I couldnever master it, now I have the sharp knifes of my childhood.Thank you.
