Then I got a "set" that used 4 ceramic rods to sharpen the knives. They did a very good job, but it was a LOT of work.
After using that set for about 5 years, I tried a real "cheapy" electric sharpener and returned it after one use. It just did not sharpen. -- Back to the rods.
I finally decided to give the 300W a try. It works just great. The knives get much sharper than any other method I have tried and they stay sharp much longer. For my purposes, this is an excellent sharpener.
The magnetic guides work OK close to the bolster, but as the blade narrows and your hand is farther from the guide, it becomes very difficult to maintain alignment. On curved blades, you have to bring the handle up carefully during the stroke while unable to see the exact portion of the blade you are sharpening. It must be done by sound and not sight. Also, while inserting the blade into the sharpener, care must be taken for exact alignment or the diamonds will grab and kick out the blade somewhat. I never detected any damage, but it doesn't inspire confidence.
I imagine that while the more expensive models with wheel type sharpeners and a different style of guide might work much better, I'm just not going to pay $100 for a knife sharpener. I will stick with my manual diamond hone. I returned the 300W.
I have sharpened my knives with Arkansas and diamond whetstones for 40+ years. I first started putting razor edges on the knives I used 44 years ago. A year ago, finding my last diamond stone to be wearing out, I looked at new ones, and at electric sharpeners. My wife dulls our knives quickly, and I get bored with trying to keep them sharp for her. So I bought one of these machines. A little pricey, in my mind, but a compromise between price and function.
The machine is too simple. And, not as in "simple is good". It does work, and if you are lucky and a little mechanically talented, you can get extremely good edges with this sharpener. However, it only has two stages - rough, and very fine. The rough takes off plenty of metal and gets rid of defects, getting you very close to where you need to be to start. The fine is so mild it is like using a leather strop to finish a blade edge.
If you get a "tin edge" with the first stage, the 2nd stage finishes it for a properly sharp knife. That first stage, however, takes off a LOT of metal, and is "touchy" to get the each side of the knife in proper balance so you get a "tin edge".
In order to keep it sharp, and not use the 1st stage often, you need to use the 2nd stage side pretty much every time you use the knife. Sorry, but that is WAY more attention than I want to pay to my knives. I have 30+ year old Henckels in my chef's knife collection - so, although I don't want to spend time sharpening every time I use the knife, I do take care of them.Read more ›
and various gadgets this sharpening device is truly a "Chef's Choice". It is easy to use, requiring only a light touch. It does a great job in sharpening your knives and does not take a long time. Another benefit is the price and better still the immediate savings when you buy the Chef's Choice 300W Diamond Hone Knife Sharpener from Amazon. This purchase will NOT CUT into your wallet !! My Henkels and Sabatiers have nice sharp honed edges. Now I think I need to buy a new cutting board.....
