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.

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.

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.

I've wanted an electric knife sharpener for many, many years. I mean, REALLY wanted one. So I was all too thrilled to finally get my hands on one. Well, long story short, this knife sharpener is all that I could've hoped for, and more.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the fact that the main sharpening medium is ceramic, leaving my coveted, pricey kitchen knives with as much metal as possible after being beautifully sharpened. This sharpener is also SUPER easy to use. Simply push in the power button, and gently and carefully guide your knife's blade through the sharpening slot and over the rotating ceramic sharpening barrels.

I've tried plenty of manual sharpeners over the years, and I always keep a honing steel on hand, because more often than not, your knives just need a good honing session. But when they actually, truly need to be SHARPENED, this sharpener does the job beautifully. Edgeware's Pro Ceramic Edge Gourmet Electric Knife and Scissors Sharpener has a black rubber guard below the slot through which you'll guide your (non-serrated) knife's blade, making the sharpening session comfortable, while protecting the sharpener unit from any unexpected cuts or scratches if your hand should slip. To the right of this are two small metal blade honing/sharpening areas, one for straight edge blades (intended to set the initial edge on your knives for successful sharpening in the unit), and one for serrated blades (and really, the ONLY place to sharpen your serrated blades, as doing such is a delicate task).
