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.

The 1520 is the best and most flexible Chef's Choice Electric Sharpener for most users. The 120 and 130 are highly rated by many reviewers and have been available for a few years. Both of these sharpeners are for 20 degree knives only. The 1520 is unique in that it has fine diamond grinding slots for both 15 and 20 degree angles as well as a stropping/finishing slot used for either angle. It also has newly designed and improved guides that have less tendency to scratch knives and are very easy to use.

Most Asian knives are ground at a 15 degree angle whereas most European and American knives are ground at 20 degrees. This sharpener will do both, including Asian knives that have the 15 degree angle on only one side.

I find it very useful to grind 20 degree knives to 15 degrees to narrow the cutting edge and then give a couple of pulls thru the 20 degree slot to create a 20 degree micro bevel. I then finish with the stropping stage. This method is described in the User's Guide but is unfamiliar to most people. i would suggest that you try it first on a small paring knife. I think you will be extremely pleased with the result. One major advantage of this technique is that the cutting edge doesn't widen much after repeated sharpening. Touchup will normally only require using the third slot. Only when absolutely necessary make a pull thru the second stage once or twice before using the third stage.

The additional flexibility of both 15 and 20 degree diamond slots and improved guides makes this sharpener a superior choice to either the 120 or 130. The Chef's Choice 1520 electric sharpener is very highly recommended.

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.

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.

When I read the reviews I was wondering if the people that were unimpressed were unable to use the machine properly, since so many people reviewed that this got their knives extremely sharp (hair-splitting sharp). Though not a manual sharpening expert (I don't have the patience to learn that craft), I do enjoy superior sharpened knives.

Here is how I label knife sharpness.

Very Dull - Does not cut paper at all
Dull - Tears paper
Sharp - cuts paper with little pressure
Very Sharp - slices easily through paper, shaves arms with little pressure
Scary sharp - splits hairs

I have a Spyderco Triangle Sharpmaker that I have used to get an edge that is "very sharp".

I bought the M1520 yesterday and spent about an hour with it, practicing on some of my girlfriends blades that were too dull to cut tomatoes, working my way up to some of my knives. Here are my thoughts:

1. It took about 10-15 minutes to get a feel for how the sharpener worked and the best angles to hold and the amount of pressure to get a consistent grind.

2. The stage 2 (I only sharpened European knives), took off a LOT of knife with one pass. I was really impressed with how quickly it worked, but I would NOT recommend using stage 2 frequently. If your knives are very dull, you may need quite a few passes, I think the most I needed was 10 (for a knife that would not pierce a tomato). If your knives are dull, probably 2 or 3 would be sufficient. If you just want to restore an edge but stage 3 isn't enough, one pass should be sufficient. I checked this with a sharpie on the edge of my knife. It complete removed the entire sharpie line in one pass.
