It was an early Christmas present from my wife, purchased by her on Amazon, because I had been complaining that we ought to get presents for Thanksgiving. smile.gif
Through the years, whether cooking in my restaurant or just cooking at home, I have tried so many different sharpening systems. I never cared for earlier models of the Chef's Choice but also never did find another system that was easy and reliable for me to use.
This sharpener creates a 15° edge angle per side on all knives, whether they be Asian or
European/American made. It creates two upper bezels about the cutting edge. I think that they are at 17.5° and the top one at 20°. These add strength to the narrow angled cutting edge so it should stay sharp for a longer period of use.
Most of my knives have an edge of 15° or less already with a few at 20°-25° per side.
There are three sharpening stages with Stage 1 being the one to reshape your knives. The other two stages refine the edge.
It is important to read and follow the instruction manual and to develop a burr on the knife before moving on to the next stage. The manual will explain and illustrate the burr as I will not go into it here. But it's easy to detect.
If your knives are European or American made, you will spend the longest time in Stage 1 until you feel the burr. The manual indicates that it may take as many as 20 sets or more of pulls to develop the burr. This was the case with my Sabatier's and a few others.
If you have mostly Asian knives that were at 15° to start with, it should only take up to 5 pairs of pulls to develop the burr.Read more ›
It is set to the Asian standard of knives of 15 degrees instead of the American/European standard of 22 degrees. Since the knives I'm using right now are Asian, this was perfect. It brought my knives back to really sharp. It was certainly better than my Shun Electric Sharpener. I was very pleased.
When I read the instruction manual, it indicated that it could also take my European knives and change the angle so that they were just as sharp as my Asian knives. The only thing the manual indicated was that it might take more pulls through the slots than your Asian knives. And, they were right. When I did this, I was impressed. The most impressive sharpening came from my 11" carving knife. When cutting Prime Rib, it made very clean cuts. Very easy to cut. I was loving it.
I now bring this sharpener to work everyday with my knife kit. I have become the official knife sharpener person for all my fiends. Even the some of the Sous-Chefs have borrowed my machine to sharpen their knives. But, because I have sharpened so many knives, I have already had to clean out the magnetized dust collector. You will know when you have to clean the magnet when you see black spots on your knife when you sharpen it.
Also, if your knives are not as sharp as you think they are, remember this... It takes a while to whittle away the metal, especially the better quality knives. I have found that it takes many pulls through the sharpener for the Global knives. The metal is HARD.Read more ›
