- Optimum edge for customized for every cutting task
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.

So over the years, I tried maybe a dozen different cheaper sharpeners, and whenever I saw a new one in a store, I had to go check it out. Ask my wife. When you ask her about me and knife sharpeners, she'll smile and nod and probably roll her eyes.
First, it is much more important than most people realize that your knives be sharp. I don't mean just kinda sharp, I mean really sharp. Not only do sharp knives work better, they are also much safer. Because with a sharp knife, you can let the knife do the work and not have to press so hard. If you stop to think about it, you should agree that most knife injuries are caused by kinda-sharp knives where you had to press too hard to make it cut, then it suddenly did, and ... OOPS! Ouch!
For me, the two main things that make a knife sharpener useful are (1) how sharp does it get the knives; and (2) will you actually use the thing?
I finally got to the position where I was fed up with all those cheaper sharpeners, and did the research (thankis to all Amazon reviewers!) and decided on this Chef's Choice 130 sharpener.
And I must say, I am DELIGHTED!
The booklet that came with the unit did an outstanding job of not only explaining HOW to properly sharpen a knife, but also WHY it needs to be done that way. I learned more about the theory behind knife sharpening from this booklet than I ever expected, and am very happy to know this.
When the device arrived, I couldn't wait to use it. But I read the booklet first, and I'm glad I did.
Once I unpacked the thing and turned it on, I was pleased to hear it runs fairly quietly, and is heavy and sturdy enough to sit solidly on the counter while doing its job.
I got out all the supposed-to-be-sharp knives in my kitchen - the good ones I use regularly, and the older dull ones from the bottom of the knife drawer. The long ones, the medium ones, even the short paring knives and the huge meat cleavers. I dived into the knife-sharpening task, and had a blast.
I didn't count, but there were probably close to two dozen knives all together.
It took me two knives of sharpening to begin to feel natural and comfortable with the process, but once I got going, it didn't even take two minutes per knife - maybe about a half hour total for all of them - to complete the task.
So how sharp did it make my knives?
The product information says it will make knives sharper than when they come from the factory, and I have no reason to doubt that. This device put an amazing edge on every single one of my knives, from the meat cleaver to my 1 1/2" pocket knife blade. The booklet says the way to test an edge is (NOT WITH YOUR FINGER) to hold up a piece of paper by the edge, and try to slice it with the blade, about half an inch from where you're holding the paper. Every single one of the knives I sharpened, including the meat cleaver, went through the paper like it wasn't even there.
Needless to say, I am hugely pleased with this device. I will probably get it out twice a year and redo the edges on all my knives.
And if anyone asks if they should get this, I will answer with a resounding YES!
You sharpen your blades by using alternating swipes for each side of the sharpening station (two slots per station) for dual edged blades, or just use the single appropriate side for single edge blades. Most people will use the "coarse" station followed by the finishing station, or just the finishing station alone.
I've used this unit on chef's knives, pocket knives, hunting knives, paring knives, etc. All come out spectacularly sharp, very quickly, and with no real skill required. After sharpening my kitchen knives, a visiting friend (who was cooking dinner for us), remarked "my God, did you get these professionally sharpened? They are soo sharp!".
I love this unit. It is well worth the money. No need for all sorts of different sharpening systems.
I have a fairly large, high-end knife collection, and I have always used a whet stone to sharpen each knife. With all the cooking I do, knife sharpening became too time consuming.
Today when the sharpener arrived, I put it through its paces -- from standard 8-inch chef's knives, to long, serrated carving knives, and even to a cheap hand-made kit knife. To a one, the knives are sharper than new -- they are razor sharp. As I write my review, I can attest to this because I accidentally cut a finger while hand washing a knife that I had just sharpened, and it is now wrapped in a bandage. (You know a blade is sharp when you cut yourself and don't realize it until you see the tell-tale oozing blood in the dishwater!)
My recommendations: Read the manual beginning to end. Read it again. Follow the instructions. It is not rocket science. This sharpener is absolutely worth the price.
