Product Description

Sharpen both your Standard knives and your Asian style knives with the Wusthof 4 stage knife sharpener. The standard sharpener uses carbide blades set at 28 degrees or 14 degrees per side to sharpener your standard kitchen knives. Stage 2 of the standard side uses ceramic rods to hone a fine edge on your blade. Simply slide the cover over to Asian knives to sharpen your Asian knives to a 20 degree angle or 10 degrees per side. The V-shaped cutting head with two crossed carbide blades puts a quick edge on knives. Stage 2 uses ceramic rods to hone the fine edge of your Santoku or Nakiri knives. Simply place the gadget on a flat work surface and hold the E-Z grip handle with one hand and the knife handle with the other. Insert the knife blade fully into the slot at a 90-degree angle to the sharpener and pull down and back three or four times to sharpen. After setting the knife's edge with the carbide side, use the unit's ceramic side to nicely finish the edge. The four-stage knife sharpener measures 9 by 3 by 1-1/2-inches.

I have an Anolon knife block set which I have never been all that impressed with. While they have a great grip and weight, they were never all that sharp. In fact, from the time I brought the set home, the Santoku was considerably less sharp than the others. An older model Chef's Choice electric sharpener I bought a long time ago helped some, but not near enough.

After reading a million reviews and not wanting to mortgage the house to buy a knife sharpener, I finally settled on this Wusthof manual sharpener and can not be more pleased. Just 8-10 draws through the course side and 4-5 draws through the fine side put a really sharp edge on all the knives. Since all the knives had dulled considerably, It is likely that they will not need so many draws in the future. All the knives easily sliced through paper and, with no effort, I sliced a clove of garlic literally paper thin... something I had never been able to do before.

The Asian side also did an extremely good job on the Santoku, which is much sharper now than it was when I bought it. Hopefully the knives will keep their edge for a while.

Additionally I always had to have my husband sharpen the knives with the old Chef's Choice as I could never get the angle right. This one requires you to hold the blade straight up and down, which makes it very easy.

By the way the specialty kitchen stores (at least in my area) have this knife sharpener priced at about $50.

I love to cook and consider sharp knives essential. Sur la Table was having a Free knife sharpening event, but since I want my knives sharp all the time, I wanted my own sharpener. I asked the Pro what type of steel I should purchase. He recommended a very large rather unwieldy one and gave me instructions on how to angle the knife properly. I asked what he uses for the event and he had a very expensive electric sharpener. Then I noticed this little Wusthof sharpener sitting on his table. When I asked what it is, he said that's his backup for when there's a problem with power or the electric sharpener, it's very nice because it automatically uses the correct angle and has a ceramic fine finish tool as well. No contest - I bought the Wusthof and have been delighted with it.

An important hint, if your knives are very dull you need to run them through repeatedly until you feel/hear the grinding against the coarse blades - you're basically putting a new edge on the blade, since you've worn off the old one. I even managed to sharpen a friend's utility knife that her husband had been using for weeding and edging the lawn! I originally bought two, the black one for the regular knives, and the red one for the Japanese knives - those are now in my vacation home, and I bought this combo because it is so much more convenient to have both sharpeners in one unit. Amazon has by far the best price for these.

Shipped promptly. Packaging adequate. High quality sharpener that works very effectively on all knives except long slicers. You need to apply downward pressure on the blade. When you approach the end of the blade on a long knife, the amt of pressure you can apply becomes less(you can only use one hand--the other holds down the sharpener)and therefore the end of blade remains dull.
SOLUTION; Have someone hold down the sharpener and position your left hand in the middle of the long blade applying pressure--result is sharp knife along entire length. What if you don't have help?--half of a sharp knife!!

Took a little getting used to to make the most out of it. The instructions are adequate, but not perfect for getting the best out of the sharpener.

When using the fine slot, you must be very, very light touch. This isn't clear in the instructions. However, used correctly (very light touch in the fine slot) it will put a razor edge on you knives. A few (light) swipes before each use will keep your knife so sharp you can cut a ripe tomato effortlessly.

I don't remember when I bought this, but it is working great to keep all my blades sharp.

I run my knives through it about once a month and steel the knives about every other time I use them. The knives are staying nice and sharp and I've even gotten complements from friends using my knives about how well they cut through tomatoes and other vegitables.

I don't own the most expensive knives... a couple of cheap henkles, and a couple of cuisinart blades, but with this sharpener, they still cut well.

About twice a year, I take the knives to the garage and really sharpen them with the sharpening stones I have.

Keep good care of your knives and they'll last a nice long time.

Wusthof makes fine German knives and a mediocre Chinese knife sharpener, which you see here. Does it work? Kinda, but it's nothing special, and frankly it seems that the bits than make the magic happen are misaligned (which may lead to some of the issues other reviewers have experiences). Knives do get sharp, but I've seen similar units do as good of a job for far less. It's just a two stage sharpener (doubled up with two stages for traditional and Japanese style knives), and I'm not sure the support for two types of blades is worth anything extra.

If you see it on a lightning sale or something, then maybe. Otherwise, try something else and let us know how it works for you.
