After reading the instructions and the reviews of the 8800, I started with a disposable knife on stage 1. Yowsa! Unless you've used an electric sharpener before, start with a knife you don't care about. Stage 1 is "metal munching" mode, used to set an edge on VERY dull knives. The manual does point out that stage one may not be necessary. Allow me to clarify: unless your knife blade has nicks, or is spoon sharp, skip stage 1. Always. If in doubt, start with stage 2. If a few passes at stage 2 doesn't do it, then revert to stage 1.
After grinding away half of the cheap paring knife edge on stage one, I moved on to stages 2 and 3. By the time I was done, I had a remarkably sharp paring knife. Better still, the edge was uniform the full length, something I rarely achieve with my stones. Inspired and over-confident, I grabbed my 15 year old Henckel chef's knife. In a few minutes, I had an edge almost as pretty and sharp as factory. Except for that little gouge near the handle, where I let the knife rest a half-second too long before I started drawing it. Lesson learned.Read more ›
Unfortunately, my wife does not know how to sharpen or hone a knife, nor does she care to learn. She dulls them and expects that I will sharpen them.
I wanted something both of us could use, that would make life easier when it comes to knife sharpening. My knives range in quality from very high quality to low quality, but regardless I want them sharp!
So I started buying a lot of different hand-held knife sharpening gadgets. They all suck. Don't bother.
Next I spent hours reviewing electric knife sharpeners - narrowing my choices down to two; (1) Chef's Choice 120 Diamond Hone 3-Stage Professional Knife Sharpener for $120.00, or (2) the Presto 08810 Professional 3-Stage Electric Knife Sharpener for $43.00 (that's what I paid).
I watched a lot of videos and actually saw the Chef's choice demonstrated live at a show; even had the guy try it on my own pocket knife. For $120, I was unimpressed with the Chef's Choice. Don't bother.
So instead, I bought the Presto 08810 Professional 3-Stage Electric Knife Sharpener for $43.00.
As with all knife sharpening systems, technique is needed, so read the instructions. Done right, you can get an amazing edge with very few passes; very sharp. I try not to over-sharpen. When it's sharp, I stop - mission accomplished. Continuing to make more passes after the knife has reached sharpness can possibly dull the blade. I only repeat if sharpness was not achieved after proceeding through the stages the first time.Read more ›
With that as a starting point, this is a good tool. First, it will take a couple degrees of the the original bevel of those German knives. It's important that you read the instructions, seriously, or you may damage your knife. This is a serious grinding machine (it's much larger than it appears to be in the photo). Don't use the coarse stone unless your knife has damage to it, or it's blade is so dull that you couldn't cut yourself no matter how hard you sliced on yourself. The coarse stone will grind serious metal off your blade.
It did a decent job on the standby German knives, you'll want to steel them afterwards. If you're not good at steeling, put the end of the steel down on the counter and mimic the angle that the guide on the sharpener uses. After steeling, it's pretty sharp, good enough for most folks I would guess. I'm going to buy a super fine diamond steel to really clean it up, but I like a really sharp blade. This sharpener leaves the bevel a little rough for my taste, not matter how careful you are. Also, I'd wipe it off between moving from the medium to the fine stones, just to get the filings off so they don't damage the blade.
Other knifes, the steel on cheaper Chicago cutlery knives tended to be a little more easily damaged by the sharpener. Be careful with these knives, don't press down to hard and pull through evenly. I guess what I'm saying is that different knives will behave differently, so be cautious at first and pay attention.Read more ›
