- Works well enough to sharpen your knives but with considerable effort if dull
- Has coarse and fine slots for a standard chef's knife
- Has coarse and fine slots for a santoku knife. Santoku blades are narrower in angle.
- Can use either left or right-handed
- Sturdy and remains stable on countertop while sharpening
- Plastic cover separates standard slots from santoku slots.
- Does only a "decent" job sharpening
- Requires two hands to operate (may be challenging for our ADA friends)
- The fine slot blades seem like they may wear out from frequent use.
We received a set of Henckel knives for our wedding, only to be disappointed that they came dull out of the box. No problemo, to the sharpener!
I've used this sharpener for years and while it will add an edge to a dull knife it will never come as close to razor sharp as taking your knifes to a professional sharpener. I'm not talking that pimple-faced kid at the mall with a grinder. I mean a blade smith who knows his metals and edges.
I've found this sharpener will usually add a nice edge to just about any knife, and I really appreciate that there is a Santoku blade sharpener because a Santoku edge is narrower and shouldn't be sharpened to the wider edge of a standard chef's knife. However it does take a large number of sharpening strokes to achieve (about ten to twelve pulls per slot) which seems too many. And I've got one particular Henckel this sharpener has never been able to make sharp. I guess I'll have to take it to my local blade smith.
Remember to always wipe a blade after sharpening with a paper towel to remove metal filings.
So consider cost vs. sharpness. If you don't want to pay $7 a knife to a pro this is a decent home option.

I have to agree with others, while it's a nice concept it works "ok" (at best) with cheapo kitchen knives, but it's quite terrible with good knives made of hard material. Read morePublished on December 28, 2012 by Gerk
