I have been sharpening knives for more than 60 years. I require my knives to be sharp enough to shave my arm. This sharpener has done that with every knife I own.

I own a Gerber Chef's knife. It is no longer made. The Gerber food knives had the hardest steel and were a devil to sharpen. Because it was so hard, I could not get this knife sharp so it just sat in the knife safe. In less than five minutes, this sharpener made my old Gerber sharp enough to shave my arm. It is now my only Chef's knife.

The final sharpening stones work like a fine sharpening steel. It makes the edge straight and perfect. A few passes on this final stage keeps the knives sharp. After getting the knife sharp the first time, you should use this stage many times before you need to use the more aggresive first stage.

You must be careful. Knives sharpened with this sharpener will cut you -- I did it twice, and I know how to use a knife. My wife did it once. You must get used to sharp knives.

The advanced mode of using either 15 or 20 degree sharpening is great for me since I have one of those oriental knives that want 15 degrees.

It is quiet and fast. If you want it sharp. This is the one;

If you have knives that require the 15 degree angle, this sharpener is for you. It gets blades extremely sharp.It is very easy to get the hang of sharpening and blades are razor sharp in seconds. If you don't use Asian type knives, get the 120 or 130 which offer more sharpening options for Western type blades as they have three slots as opposed to 2 on the angle select.

I have Henckel knives in both the American/European and Japanese knife angle and after reading Cook's Illustrated review of knife sharpeners, I decided on this recommended model. The instructions were easy to understand, my knives are sharper than the results of my previous handheld sharper and my neighbors all agree: if you like to cook, this is a essential product to own. It even sharpened a rustic cleaver that the Mr. brought back from Thailand over 20 years ago that collected dust in my drawer because it was so dull. At the same time of this purchase, I bought the scissor sharper Chef's Choice ScissorPro Diamond Hone and I couldn't be more pleased with the two purchases. If you made an investment in quality kitchen tools, this product will maintain their quality, with little effort.

I actually bought this new, but through an auction site rather than Amazon, so yes, I do own this exact model. Mine is in Brushed Metal finish.

It just arrived today. It is super easy to use as long as you pay close attention to what you are doing and can pull a knife through the sharpening slots evenly and consistently. I HIGHLY recommend this for those not skilled with bench sharpening. It is reasonably foolproof and fast. It will get your kitchen cutlery very sharp, enough to cut paper easily and cut a ripe tomato with just the weight of the knife in about a 3"-4" stroke. Just like all those kitchen shows and infomercials.

In two hours, I finished sharpening the 17 main forged American and German knives in my two main kitchen block collections. This included chef's, Santoku, slicers/carvers, utility, paring, and serrated bread/utility knives. This two hour time also included converting one 8" German carving knife and two German pairing knives from 20 degree angles to 15 degree angles. HUGE difference in sharpness and cutting capability, although I expect they will need more frequent maintenance with this angle. But then, these 3 converted blades never see a hard surface such as a cutting board, bone, or fibrous veggies, so I expect the more delicate blade should be Ok. I have other carving and paring knives I sharpened at 20 degrees for the uses mentioned.

I also sharpened a Puma Skinner fixed blade hunting knife, a Master Knives folding hunting knife, and an Uncle Henry 10" fillet knife. I still have about 30-40 knives to go before I'm done with all the non-collectible kitchen, hunting, and fillet knives I have. Note, I don't sharpen the collectible knives...they stay as-is for their value (and also I have way too many!

This does a very nice job on all my knives. I used an oil stone for many years. The difference is quite obvious. I have rescued some very old knives and it does take time, but they are as good as new now. If you have a small amount of knives, it is a bit pricey. I have over thirty kitchen knives and the sharpener is a real time saver. Very happy with it.

I have always sharpened my knives manually on a stone and never believed that an electric sharpener could get my knives as sharp as I required them to be. Boy was I wrong. After reading reviews about electric sharpeners I decided on the Chefs Choice 1520. The vender that I purchased it from was very prompt in shipping this to me and it arrived in excellent condition. This sharpener exceded my expectations. It is very quiet, and with just a few passes, the edge on all of my cutlery, even the longest filet blades, was razor sharp. Something I didn't believe to be possible. The motor is very strong and doesn't slow down even on my heaviest blades, while sharpening. So far I've only needed to sharpen my knives once as they are holding their edge, after daily use for about three months now. I would definately recommend this sharpener to friends.
