Product Description

Product Description

This Wusthof Santoku 2 stage sharpener is especially designed for the Wusthof asian style Santoku knife. The ceramic sharpening rods have one stage for course cutting a new edge and then a fine ceramic to hone the knife to a keen edge. The Santoku knife has a narrower blade angle and this sharpener shapes the edge to 17 degrees. The Santoku sharpener can easily bring those dull knives back to cutting form.

Amazon.com

The Asian-style santoku knife has a narrower blade angle than most kitchen knives, so a special sharpener is required. This handy two-stage sharpener from Wüsthof uses coarse carbide heads to reset an edge on a dull knife, and fine-tunes one that's already fairly sharp with ceramic rods. Clearly labeled Coarse and Fine, the two slots on the sharpener let you know which to use. Set the knife blade vertically on the notch and apply gentle pressure while pulling the knife through. A large flange-style handle with a rubberized grip, along with a non-slip bottom, allows the sharpener to be held steady during use on a counter or table. Usually a well-cared-for santoku just requires a swipe or two through the Fine slot to keep it in razor-sharp condition. The sharpener measures 8 by 3 by 1-1/4 inches. --Ann Bieri

This sharpener sharpens at 17 degrees, which is perfect for my Wusthof Classic Santoku and Wusthof Ikon knives. It can be used on other Japanese knives as well (though truthfully, you should be using a stone to sharpen your nice Japanese knives).

I guess you could call this the lazy man's sharpener, for those of us who don't have time to learn how to use a whetstone. It's cheaper, and more compact than a Spyderco 304, which I was also looking at (but can only be found on eBay these days, and costs twice as much). But it works well, and creates a sharp knife in just a few swipes.

Now my sharpening is complete. For my regular German knives, I sharpen every 6 months - 1 year with the Chef's Choice 120 (sharpens at ~ 25 degrees), and I steel everytime before use at about 22-25 degrees. For my remaining knives, Ikon, Santoku, I just use this Wusthof Asian Edge sharpener (using the fine ceramic) every so often, and the coarse ceramic at most 1x or 2x a year.

I would not use this sharpener on Shuns however, since Shuns may sometimes have a one-sided bevel edge that may be destroyed with this type of sharpener. Consult your knife manufacturer's recommendations for best results.

**EDIT** After having owned this device for nearly 2 years, I can attest that it's just as handy as ever. I use it to sharpen my MAC MTH knife, and it works beautifully for this purpose. My MAC knife chops through watermelon rinds/butternut squash/taro roots like a hot knife through proverbial butter, after just a few sharpenings.

I purchased this santoku sharpener at Amazon and have been very satisfied with it's performance. It maintains the 16 degree angle required on all german-made santoku knives and most other similar asian knives. Routine honing with the finishing stage will maintain the ultra sharp edge of a new blade for a long time.

Have not used the course-stage sharpener because I do not allow the knife to become dull. However, a dull knife usually requires removal of metal to become sharp again, and I don't believe this sharpener removes metal. It is great for its intended purpose though, maintaining the near-new sharpness of a high quality santoku knife, and maintaining the 16 degree angle without scaring the edge when sharpening.

I highly recommend this sharpener - it does a better job on my Global, Wushoff and Calphalon knives than any other sharpener. Including Global's recommended Minosharp with the two wet sharpening wheels, which does just an ok job in comparison.

It performs excellently on straight blades - you need to curve the knife a little for best effect if the knife's blade is curved near the top.

I think it loses some of its effectiveness after about 6 months of moderate to heavy use, but at this price I think it's well worth getting a new one if you spent on premium kitchen knives.

Also, it is impossible to cosmetically scratch your knives with this sharpener - it will touch the blade an nothing else...

Designed for one specific purpose, to sharpen santoku and a few other Asian knives, it works very well. Fools trying to sharpen every other knife with this sharpener will be disappointed. It's not made for every knife. But it restores an edge to your santoku and Chinese cleaver in record time!

Santoku knives are very sharp, mainly due to the angle of the edge. Other knife sharpeners will ruin that edge. If you want an easy way to keep your Santokus sharp this does the job without dragging out the a complete set of sharpening stones.

As the other reviewers have commented this is one of the fastest and easiest santoku knife sharpeners available.

For those of you that this is your first santoku remember you do not need to use the course side every time. Use the fine side on a regular basis and the course side only when you have noticed a diminished edge on the knife. This will maximize the life of your santoku.

Also I suspect I will have to purchase on of these every year or so. At less than 10% the cost of my santoku it is a small price to pay.

this is an absolute must for Wusthof owners. it is set at the perfect angle specifically for Wusthof blades and works great an maintaining the knifes edge over long periods of use. just a few quick swipes before each use and you can go years with out having to have your blades sharpened.
