Product Description

Amazon.com

It may seem like a contradiction, but sharp knives are the safest. With a clean edge, a knife is more predictable and easier to control. If you've purchased a top-of-the-line knife, maintaining the quality of the blade ensures maximum value from your investment. This Chef's Choice knife sharpener performs professional-quality sharpening on any knife, from gourmet knives to hunting knives--even serrated knives can be sharpened with this machine. For top-quality edges, there are two sharpening and honing stages, which use 100 percent diamond abrasives, and a final polishing stage. Each stage uses precision angle guides to create a unique Trizor-Plus edge for maximum sharpness and durability, while a magnetic pad collects residue so the machine is easy to clean and maintain. While a sharp knife is indeed a safe knife, it's wise to use caution with your newly sharpened knives, as they'll be sharper than you expect. --Laura Cuthbert

From the Manufacturer

For all fine-edge knives, and even serrated knives (as demonstrated in the image), the Chef's Choice 120 three-stage diamond hone professional sharpener lets you select the edge to match the need. It allows you to enjoy incredibly sharp edges that stay sharp longer for all knives. And the Chef's Choice 120 is easy to use and lightning fast.
For Gourmet Knives
  • Edges for the ultimate in effortless food preparation and presentation
  • Ultra-sharp, smooth, nonserrated edges produced by unique stropping and polishing disk of stage 3
  • Safe for quality cutlery

For Butcher-Type Knives

  • Select the right edge "bite" for fibrous foods
  • Edges stay sharp longer, even under the most challenging cutting tasks
  • No job too tough for the Trizor-Plus edge

For Sporting/Hunting Knives

  • There's never been a better edge for field-dressing game or filleting fish
  • Multi-beveled edges with micro-fluted facets stay sharp much longer
  • Perfect edges for woodworking, paper products, carpets, and more

    For Serrated Knives

  • Reshapes and realigns distorted teeth
  • Sharpens and polishes each serrated tooth
  • Better-than-factory performance
  • The Three Stages

    Stage 1
    Use for excessively dull or damaged knives or for maximum edge "bite." Diamond abrasives create first facet.

    Stage 2
    Use for routine sharpening. Finer-grit diamonds create a second bevel.

    Stage 3
    Patented material creates third micro bevel, and polished micro-flute cutters along the super-sharp edge.

    I was very suspicious of this guy, but having actually used it I can only recommend it.

    We've had one in my house for quite some time. My mother bought it because she is not interested in learning the ins and outs of knife maintenance and read several great reviews of the 120.

    I was suspicious, mainly from bad experience with cheezy knife sharpening gadgets, but also because my mom's knives, which had been through the Chef's Choice, always had crappy edges. I had made something of a habit of looking sideways at the Chef's Choice 120 on our kitchen counter.

    I finally read one too many good reviews of this product (when I wasn't even looking for them, they just seem to pop up here and there if you read enough about cooking and cutlery), I decided to give it a shot on a Henckel's 5-star Santoku that had lost it's edge. I love the size and shape of a santoku, but it had gotten dull and was superceded by a Kasumi chef's knife I received as a gift. I figured the worst thing that could happen was that a knife I wasn't using would remain unusable.

    First off, I Read The Freakin Manual. Do not underestimate the importance of this step. If I had just bought it based on good reviews and ripped open the box, I might have done this, but since I was already suspicious of it, I read through every word of their instructions. If you don't read the manual, the way you assume it works may be wrong (the big mistake might actually be overusing it). More on that later.

    Next, before I turned it on, I did a few practice pulls with the power off. Get a feel for pulling the knife through smoothly and evenly. Make sure you keep the knife blade properly aligned with the wheel (i.e.

    I have had mine for 3 months and it's greatest item I've bought. I sharpened old knives that I had put in the back of drawers becuase they were so dull from other hand sharpeners.
    Now, it brought to life all my knives and even the serrated knives and the cleaver. My husband is a charter captain, he fillets large salmon and trout that his customers caught He uses the electric serrated knife and had been sending them in to be sharpen, but found buying new blades was cheaper. So, I gave it a try and sharpened 3 sets that were dull. He's amazed how well it cuts now. Use the last slot for serrated edges.

    Color Name: White
    I currently own the professional Chef's Choice model (which I highly recommend, by the way), but previously used this model made for home kitchens (don't let the word "professional" in Amazon's description of this model's title fool you--it's just a gimmick, there is a real professional quality Chef's Choice electric sharpener).
    I purchased a Chef's Choice after reading good things about this electric sharpener in "Cooks Illustrated" magazine. It definitely made a world of difference. I was starting with good knifes--Wustof Trident and Henckels--which may have something to do with my success, but the Chef's Choice really does make home sharpening possible, and easy, in my experience. When a knife seems dulls I run it through the whole sharpening process (once every 4-6 months with a high quality knife that gets a fair amount of use), but to keep my knives constantly razor sharp--which is what I really love about the Chef's Choice--I just run them through the second stage a few times as soon as they're washed. That way they're always ready to use.
    My only negatives would be ... 1) That I've had no luck sharpening serrated knives (like a bread knife), which the Chef's Choice claims is can do. Because serrated knives hold their edge a LOT longer than other knives, this isn't a major concern for me. To sharpen your serrated knives I suggest taking them to a professional--look under "knife sharpening" or "cutlery" in the yellow pages. It only needs to be done once a year or so and most will do it while you wait for around $3-$5 per knife. 2) My second caveat for the chef's choice is that the "third" stage on this model has little or no effect as far as I can tell.

    I have had this model for some time now, and it has preformed without flaw. This particular model (#120) was highly rated in the last issue of Fine Cooking. There is very little metal loss and the edge is far better than a factory one. I think so much of this that I am buying another one for a birthday gift. You will not be disappointed.

    I initially purchased a model 100 from a local Target store. It looked identical to the model 110 that is listed on Amazon's site. After bringing it home and trying it, I discovered that it did not sharpen the knife all the way to the hilt. After calling the 800 number for Chef's Choice, I found out that the 100 is different from the model 110 because of the inability to sharpen the full length of the blade. Both the 100 and the 110 use reciprocating flat stones to do the sharpening. I found that the model 100 had a tendency to leave irregular sharpening marks on the knife, They were sharp - but purely on an aesthetic view - they didn't look that good after sharpening. I then opted to go for the Model 120.

    The Model 120 uses three sets of rotary stones that are controlled by springs that keep a constant pressure between the blade and the knife. It also has spring loaded slots that keep the knife at an exact grinding angle. It is an almost foolproof method of sharpening knives. As long as you maintain an even speed pulling the knife through the sharpener and you allow the spring to hold the knife at the proper angle, you should get the same excellent results that I got. The first stage only has to be used the first time that you sharpen a knife with the unit - after that only stage two and three should be necessary.

    One of my concerns about using an electric knife sharpener has always been about how much steel is removed from the blade during sharpening. The model 120 has a magnetic cleanout plug under the machine that collects the steel removed during the sharpening process. After sharpening eight knives the filings that accumulated on the magnet were almost non-existent.
