Coddle your cutlery with, the Chefs Choice Professional Sharpening Station 130. It offers the serious cook, professional chef, or knife connoisseur 'edge versatility' with a 3-Stage sharpening system that features our renowned sharpening and stropping stages as well as the world’s most advanced steeling process.
Built-in precision angle guides in all three stages eliminate guesswork and produce consistently sharp edges every time. The Chefs Choice Professional Sharpening Station 130 eliminates the clutter of ineffective sharpening gadgets and provides in one compact appliance, the ultimate versatility of choosing the preferred edge for any cutting task.
With the Chef’s Choice Sharpening Station you can do it all, simply with the push of a single on/off button. And the astonishingly sharp, long-lasting edge is better than factory sharp, no matter which type of edge you choose.
The Different Stages:
Stage 1: Consists of rotating conical disks impregnated with 100% diamond abrasives that safely sharpen the entire edge of quality kitchen, household, Asian-style, sports, and pocketknives. It never de-tempers the knife blade and helps prolong the life of quality knives.
Stage 2: Features a super-hardened miniature steel that along with precision angle guides develop a shaving sharp edge with ultra-sharp microscopic serrations that provide a 'bite' superior to professionally steeled edges. Stage 2 can be used as often as desired to maintain a consistent razor sharp-steeled edge until Stage 1 sharpening is required again. The sharpening angle of Stage 1 and Stage 2 are precisely set to optimize the sharpening steeling sequence.
Stage 3: Uses a flexible abrasive disk system—a high-tech version of the barber strop—to create a microscopically smooth, ultra- sharp fine edge. It can be used as often as needed to keep edges polished and maintained until additional sharpening is required. Stage 3 is also used for sharpening serrated knives. The ultra-fine flexible stropping disk straightens and aligns the serrations and sharpens each prominent tooth so it becomes an ultra- sharp 'micro-blade'. It is excellent for serrated knives of any alloy, forged or non-forged, including so-called 'never-need-sharpening' knives, which are serrated, and do become dull!
How It Works:
The Fine Edge: Use Stage 1 to sharpen and Stage 3 to hone and polish for a razor sharp durable edge that is perfect for serving up decorative platters and precision slicing of more delicate foods.
Steeled Edge: Sharpen with Stage 1 and then steel with Stage 2 to obtain the controlled bite preferred by professionals for fibrous foods.
Steeled/Polished Edge: This is a superb edge of unprecedented sharpness, combining the characteristics of both a steeled and highly polished edge by sequentially going through Stage 1, 2, and 3. It’s ideal for precision slicing and elegant presentation of foods such as smoked salmon.
The 130 is ruggedly built, handsomely designed and molded from a sturdy, high-impact engineering polymer.
Designed for safety, the sharpener is U.L. approved. Rubber feet hold the unit securely to the work surface.
The sharpener requires no sharpening oils or liquids. The unit is compact enough (10 inches long by 4 3/10 inches high and 4 ¼ inches deep) to be permanently placed on the kitchen counter, so knives can be quickly re-sharpened.
Tip: This helps increase kitchen safety because sharp knives are much safer to use. Dull knives require the user to apply excessive force while cutting, increasing the risk of knife slippage and personal injury.

The newest breakthrough in sharpening technology, the 130, presents most of your sharpening options in one compact appliance. It professionally sharpens, steels or strops most brands and types of knives; straight edge or serrated, kitchen, sports and pocket knives in seconds. Three stages make it possible to obtain a "better than factory" edge quickly and effortlessly. Stage 1, using 100% diamond abrasives, sharpens the edge. Stage 2 is a super-hardened miniature steel that develops a shaving sharp edge with ultra-sharp microscopic teeth, providing a superior edge "bite". In stage 3, a revolutionary flexible stropping disk polishes the edge to hair-splitting sharpness. Using these stages in different combinations produces custom edges, suited to a particular cutting task. Built-in, high precision, user friendly elastomeric angle guides guarantee fool-proof sharpening. Assembled in the U.S.A. Limited 3 year warranty. UL approved

Has anyone else had success using the M130 to get knives with a bad edge angle back to top form?
So I read the reviews here and decided on the Chef's Choice M130 Platinum.
We got it today, and I read the instructions, which some called not so great, and easily and effortlessly returned our J.A. Henkels Pro S to professional sharpness! They may even be better than the originally were!
I even sharpened my Gerber multi-tool knife which has a 2" blade. It is now razor sharp, better than new.
We are VERY satisfied with this sharpener and highly recommend it.
Specifically, I recently purchased two of the manual sharpeners rated highly by Cooking Illustrated: the ANOLON Universal Sharpener, and the Messermeister Chantry Sharpener. They simply don't compare to the Chef's Choice sharpener, which is Cooking Illustrated's highest rated power sharpener.
I wish I had simply purchased this sharpener first. Not only does it sharpen a knife to factory, hair-shaving sharpness, but it doesn't damage the sides of the blades like some manual sharpeners do after repeated strokes. The bottom line is that it leaves you with a knife that could easily pass as brand new.
Note that there are three sections to this sharpener:
1) Course powered sharpener
2) Non-powered steel
3) Fine-grain powered sharpener
All three sections have blade guides that hold the blade at just the right angle. Section 2 is not powered at all: it's just a steel, but it steels the blade at just the right angle.
To sharpen a knife, generally you are suppose to use section 1 followed by 2, which results in a very well steeled blade with a little "bite" which is most suitable for cutting course food, OR you are suppose to use section 1 followed by 3, which results in a hair-shaving sharp blade suitable for cutting ripe tomatoes.
You can also resharpen a knife using just section 3, which is effortless and takes just a few seconds.
I was skeptical of going electric at first, but now I'm glad I finally did.
