Product Description

Introducing, the first electric sharpener to feature Extra Fine Interlocking alumina ceramic wheels that provide superior edge producing capabilities while removing minimal material from the knife's edge. Compared to diamond, or synthetic abrasives, ceramics product a smoother and sharper edge while removing little metal, extending the life of the knife. This means that the electric sharpening feature can be used for even light touch-ups of an already sharp knife. The unit's features include interlocking ceramic wheels for fast and precise sharpening of both sides of the knife blade at the same time, and two manual finishing slots. One manual slot offers carbide blades to use for setting the initial edge on the knife to match sharpening angle of the ceramic wheels. The other manual slot consists of triangular shaped ceramic stones that are designed to follow the shape of a serrated knife and ensure consistent sharpening. The stones can also be used to polish a freshly ground edge on straight knives. The unit assures equal treatment of both sides of the knife blade and incorporates a retractable scissors sharpener.

Both work extremely well and my serrated edge knives are sharper than when new.
S. Schachter
It is obvious after speaking to the women in customer service that the staff there take great pride in their product, reputation but more so customer satisfaction.
Richard Michal
The way the wheels are set up, sort of like a worm gear, allow you to pull the knife through in one direction and simultaneously sharpen both sides of the knife.

I have tried several manual sharpening systems including Spyderco and Edgemaker Pro but never used flat stones due to the learning curve and time involved to get that razor edge. Stones are the professional's choice but take a while to use and master.

Until recently, I was most pleased with the electric Chef's Choice Trizor XV which takes any knife down to a 15° angle. But it is time consuming to say the least. It, however, makes knives extremely sharp despite "shaving" metal from the cutting edge. It is the best of all the Chef Choice sharpeners I have used for the past several decades.

My new electric sharpener, the Smith's Edgeware with ceramic interlocking stones is the best I have ever used, period. My knives are sharper than ever before. And it is an effortless system in that it sharpens both sides of the cutting edge at the same time so you don't have to feel for the burr before continuing each stage of sharpening. It takes less than 30 seconds to pull the knife through the slot 10 times and, being ceramic, virtually no metal is removed.

It is simple to use, produces extremely sharp edges and takes much less time than any of the other Chef Choice or manual sharpeners I've used, although all of these other sharpeners can do a great job with patience on your part.


It sharpens to a 17.5° angle which lays between the European (think Wustof) 20° and the Japanese 15°. Since my knives were already at 15°, it probably made it easier for this sharpener to reshape up to the 17.5° angle per side.

But one of my half width cleavers was at 20° so it gets pulled through a manual carbide stone slot 10 times to reshape it's edge and then goes through the rotating wheels.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Until I got the Edgeware 50142 Pro Ceramic Edge Gourmet Electric Knife and Scissors Sharpener I had only used sharpening steels and manual sharpeners. I have to say that I have always been a bit flinchy with the former (steel) never sure that I had the angle or motion right, and worried about ruining some very good (Wusthof and Henckels) knives. As a consequence they were not sharpened often enough and not always ready when I wanted them. The Edgeware sharpener has the angle set and grips the knife at the correct angle to maintain the blade.
In many ways, this is a very impressive tool. It could almost be called a multi-toll because it provides so many options: a manual carbide sharpeener to hone or repair damaged knives, a (in my experience unique) sharpener for serrated knives, a scissors sharpener, and an electric ceramic wheel sharpener for routine touch-ups and manitenence.

Despite somewhat intimidating warning in the manual, this tool is very easy to use. In less than 15 minutes I had shapened near every blade in my kitchen: over a dozen chef's knives, a set of steak knives, and a wide variety of knives (paring, sandwich,vegetable...) which had been sitting in my drawer for years.
I am very impressed with it's performance on the serrated knives, as well as most of the old knives which I was ready to throw or give away. Suddenly they are useful again! My serrated knives, which I'd accepted as having reached their half-life are as good or better than new!
So why the 4 stars? Well, if I could I would give it a 4.5 On most of the knives I tested it with the performance was excellent.

Verified Purchase
Overall I am happy with this purchase, but at this price point I would hope for a little less compromise and a little more wow! I can easily slice ripe tomatoes and fibrous meats. I am very happy with how quickly it sharpened my knives.

Could I get a better edge with alternative products?
Probably. Potentially using the Chef's Choice XV, 1520, or 130 series based on the reviews / documentation I have read.

Would I be able to sharpen my knives nearly as quickly as I can with this product?
No. I am very happy with the speed of this sharpener and the fact that it sharpens both sides of a knife at once.

Would I buy it again?

Product Use Scenario:
I used the product to sharpen several forged steel Henckel knives, including one Asian style knife (Santoku).

Stars Removed:
1.) -1 Star - Guide can hinder sharpening the heel of a knife with a thick bolster.
2.) -.5 Star - The edge produced by using this sharpener is competent, but probably not as good as competing products.
3.) -.5 Star - Price for 2 sharpening wheels and a few manual sharpening slots is steep.

Questions To Ask Yourself Prior To Purchasing A Sharpener:

Q1.) Do you like to spend time sharpening knives or do you value a quick solution?

My Answer:
I view sharpening knives as a chore, and prefer to complete the task quickly.

Q2.) Do you want the best possible edge on your knife when you are done, or one that is merely functional (Able to slice ripe tomatoes without squishing or easily cut fibrous meats)?

My Answer:
Functional. Knife sharpening can rapidly reach the point of diminishing returns. The sharper the edge, the faster it will degrade.
