Smith's (established 1886) claims that this is the only non-commercial grade knife sharpener with interlocking diamond wheels that is available for home use. I can't confirm this, but I can tell you that it does an excellent and really fast job sharpening knives razor sharp for just a little over $100. (and free shipping from Amazon). There are two electric-powered sharpening wheels that sharpen both sides of the blade at the same time, and also two mannual slots, one with carbide wheels (for rough blade shaping) and a ceramic slot for fine finishing. The powered grinding wheels have two speeds, low and high. There is also a pull-out cylinder for doing scissors manually. The machine is compact (approximately 8" long x 6" deep x 5" high) and lightweight- about 4 pounds. It is very stable when sharpening, with it's rubber feet and low profile. The housing seems to be heavy-duty plastic with chrome accents. The box says it also sharpens serrated knives, but I haven't tested this function yet. It has a 3 year limited warranty.
It was the industrial diamond surfaced grinding wheels that captured my interest originally, and in my opinion they are what puts this sharpener in a league above the others.Read more ›
From the reviews and ads for this unit, I was expecting a razor-like edge. The edge quality I'm seeing is far from that sharp.
It seems to do a decent job, but the blade finish is a little "coarse" for my taste. Smiths calls them a "medium" grit, but I'd consider them more on the coarse to medium range. Even with light pressure and very slow movement using the "low" speed setting, my blades have grinding marks and fine "scoring". A finer grit would make for a "smoother edge". There is also some vertical vibration of the blades which indicates that the diamond wheels are not perfectly concentric.
I'm getting decent edges, but not edges that are as polished as well was supplied from the factory.
Possibly as the diamond wheels ware-in, the quality of the edge finish will improve. Smiths does mention that they will lose some of their initial cutting speed as they wear.
The fixed scissors sharpeners are a nice extra, but are not something I really expect to use very often.
I have had absolutely no luck sharpening the Victorinox knives with this sharpener. I can't say the cause for sure (I assume some combination of blade thickness, proper angle, and I'm sure some user error to) , but I just haven't been able to in many, many attempts.
All in all, this is a pretty good sharpener depending on the knife, and it makes sense for someone that wants to go the "cheap, thin blade knife, and replace as needed when the knife wears out" route. Be very careful if getting this primarily to sharpen higher end knives.
