From the manufacturer
Why a 15 Degree Angle?
The XV's 15 degree angled edge provides maximum performance and cuts more easily than a traditional 20 degree angled edge. “The thinner the edge the less effort it takes to cut and the easier the knife is to control."
Protect Your Investment
Since all knives dull with use, it's important to protect your cutlery investments with the right maintenance tools. A knife's long-term performance depends on how it is resharpened.
Knives made of the finest steel will hold an edge longer, but even the best of knives dull with use- and the initial factory edge only lasts for the first few days or weeks of use.
Than for more than 99% of a knife's useful life, it's edge performance depends on how it is resharpened. Replicating the initial factory edge is not particularly relevant, especially since today's modern sharpeners can apply a better factory edge on every knife.

This professional electric 2-Stage knife sharpener sharpens both straight edge and serrated knives to better than factory edges, in just minutes.
When your favorite knives start squishing ripe tomatoes instead of slicing them, it's time to sharpen your blades. This knife sharpener is remarkably easy to use on both straight-edge and serrated knives. Simply plug it in, turn it on, and feed knife blades through the stages. The first sharpening stage uses 100 percent diamond abrasive disks to hone the knife's edge while the second stage incorporates polymer disks to polish and strop the edge to hairsplitting sharpness. Straight-edge knives should go through both stages, while serrated blades should only be used in the polishing stage.
The internal elastomeric spring guides hold knife blades at just the right angle to the sharpening surfaces, making sharpening easy. The instructions are easy to follow, and maintenance is limited to removing the metal dust shavings from the clean-out tray once a year or so; no lubrication is necessary for the motor, bearings, or sharpening surfaces. Guaranteed not to detemper, the sharpener has a two-year warranty for home use. --Ariel Meadow Stallings

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I had to read through the manual again when it got here, just to pay close attention to how to properly use it.
I noticed that on a lot of the one-star reviews, there are a lot of complaints about it not sharpening properly, or not sharpening Japanese knives. It seems to me that most of these people didn’t take careful time to properly read the manual. I did have a bit of trouble at first - turns out, I was making some mistakes, and once I checked the manual, I had sharp knives.
You need to know when to use slot 1 and when NOT to. You need to have a good burr on slot 2, before proceeding to slot 3, or you won’t have a sharp knife. If you don’t pay attention to these simple things, you will probably dislike this device.
As it is, I found I could take an old dull knife and have it pass the paper and tomato tests in under 2 minutes once I got the hang of using it.
America’s Test Kitchen kitchen is right - great sharpener.
This comes with a warning: Your knives will be sharper than before so be careful. Yeah, yeah, great marketing. I get it, it takes your normal 20 degree edges for less expensive knives and sharpens them to 15 degrees. Fine, I just want to be able to cut a tomato instead of tearing it.
Well, pay attention to the warning. I took a knife after sharpening it with this, held a tomato in my hand (I know, stupid sign on my head) and cut it. The knife went through it so smoothly and quickly and easily I didn't even notice it kept going into my ring finger. Even then, it was sharp enough I didn't even really feel the cut in my finger at first, I just notice a line and blood!
This sharpener, if you follow the instructions, will truly make your knives SHARP. Sharp enough that I've cut my hand three times because I'm not used to having to be as careful as you have to be with REALLY sharp knives. We converted a set of relatively inexpensive Cuisinart knives into a very effective knife set. No, they aren't a $600 set of knives now but I wouldn't want them any sharper!
Exceeded my expectations.
I appreciate good knives. Whether cooking, camping or hunting, I like them to be sharp. Razor sharp. I want to be able to shave with my pocket knife.
My local mobile sharpener recently went out of business, so I've been looking for a good sharpening tool. This arrived yesterday, and I've sharpened every knife I can find to a razors edge. I'm now trying to sharpen the cheese knives. I probably need to warn my girlfriend. Testing the knives I'm now bald and I've shaved half the dog. The cat now won't come near me. So far no stitches, but the cat might change that.
I started with a cheap Kershaw pocket knife that's never been sharp. 10 passes on each side through all 3 wheels, and I can shave a grasshoppers belly.
I moved onto an old Benchmade knife that had 2 blowouts on the blade from an electrical arc. 20 passes through the #1 wheel on each side, 10 each on 2 & 3, and I'm now clean shaven for dinner tonight.
On to the Wusthof Classic kitchen knives; the chefs knife can now shave garlic paper thin, the carving knives ....... well they're better than new.
In short, you're obviously looking for a good knife sharpener if you're reading this. If you're a cheapskate, I easily have 20 s***ty as-seen-on-tv options, or worse, that I'd happily send your way if you'll pay the shipping. If you want a good knife sharpener for quality knives, or even a good knife sharpener to make the best of that crap your in-laws gave you for Christmas in 1986, buy this. You'll love it.

I heard about this product through America's Test Kitchen, which sounded perfect for my needs of having a lot of knives and being too lazy to learn how to sharpen through whetstones. I'm rethinking this now.
My daily beater knife is my Wusthof Classic (full bolster) 8" chef's knife, which the Chef's Choice Trizor sharpened the heck out of, literally passed the paper and tomato tests like a champ, but scratched all along both sides of the knife in a very noticeable way. Thankfully I did not try this on my Miyabi Birchwood knife.
Conclusion: If you're a cook or professional chef who looks at their cookware like tools, I think this sharpener is up your alley and I'd highly recommend it; you'll get sharp knives super fast. If you've bought some beautiful looking knives for looks and function, don't put them near the Chef's Choice Trizor as you'll end up ruining the finish on the side of your knife.

The system has two sets of wheels. The first set are diamond abrasive wheels for sharpening and honing and the second set are flexible abrasive for polishing / stropping. All you have to do is slowly drag the knife blade through the disks. With a really blunt knife, it will take about ten goes each side on the first set and about three goes on the second set. After that, re-sharpening will only take about two goes on each. The knives end up astonishingly sharp.
As others have mentioned, it is important to read the instructions booklet carefully before use.
There is a magnet inside which collects the filings. It is easy to clean it out. No messy oils are used.
I then set about sharpening my knives. I don't have hugely expensive knives but they are Sabatier types and I keep a reasonable edge on them, I thought. Well it seems I was wrong. The steel is consigned to the draw of 'odds and sods' and won't be seeing the light of day again I suspect. This device took less than 10 minutes to sharpen all 7. When I did the sheet of paper 'edge cutting test' the knives all fell through the paper with the tiniest of help from me. Very impressive indeed.
This is not a cheap piece of kit but it is certainly worth every penny to me and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone. Excellent results and good value for money so I give it 5 stars
