Product Description

This classic manual sharpener is designed by Taylor's Eye Witness, which was established in 1883. This full metal manual sharpener is manufactured in Sheffield England and is the finest pull through sharpener on the market. This unique design is on permanent display at the New York Museum of Modern Art. At the heart of the machines are two butcher steels; the same hardness, temper and cut as a professional steel. The steels are preset at the optimum angle and are spring loaded so as not to damage the knife.The steels revolve under tension and do not wear away the blade. To use, wipe the blade clean, draw the knife between the steel rods 4 or 5 times, as if slicing, and using enough pressure to rotate the steels. Use the Chantry frequently, preferably before each time a knife is used. The Chantry manual sharpener is not recommended for fine edge knives or Japanese knives.

With little trouble this Chanrty Knife Sharpener, creates a sharp long lasting edege. It is surprisingly heavy, so it stays when you run your knife through it. The color is a very nice deep green, and the surface is smooth, and easy to keep clean.

Color Name: Black
I bought this product as a gift, having bought one for myself some months ago. My experience with the product has been very favorable. It really does take all the skill and expertise out of using a sharpening steel -- and the results are extremely sharp! It is a brilliant, rugged, low-tech design: the steels work in foolproof fashion; the handle secures the machine firmly while in use; it takes very little effort to use. It comes in a variety of versatile colors, so you'll keep it sitting pretty, ready for touch-ups, on the kitchen counter. Maybe I'm so keen (get it?) because it was designed by my favorite designer, the Brit, Robert Welch.

I own this sharpener ( for years ) and give at least one a year at Christmas -When you first use it it takes a bit longer to get a edge on your blade if your knives have been sharpened at a different angle but once the knife is sharpened on the chantry it only take a couple of stroke's to bring it up to a razor sharp edge after the initial sharpening -I love it!! a "best in class"
