Henckels Twin Sharp Duo knife sharpener is suitable for all knives with a fine edge, with the exception of coated knives. The stainless-steel sharpener comprises two modules, which are marked on the sharpener. The first module features steel wheels for coarse sharpening and presharpening, and the second module uses ceramic wheels for fine sharpening and smoothing. This sharpener works well for both right- and left-handed people, features rubber feet so it won't skid on the countertop, and measures approximately 8 inches across and 3 inches tall, so you can store it in a drawer or display it in a small space. To use, place the knife sharpener on a flat surface, pressing down slightly with one hand. Draw the knife blade with a little pressure towards yourself, repeating up to five times for the dullest blades. For very blunt knives, use the first module and then the second. Knives with a bit of bluntness may require only the first module to bring back the original sharpness. Check the results by cutting into a sheet of paper.

Turns out that this device works well. If one uses it frequently, the knives can stay sharp. After six months, I can still use my friend's knives without frustration. Not five stars because, frankly, no knife sharpener like this can be excellent. This, however, is very good, and if you don't use a whetstone, get one.
First, many stated that their sharpener stood solid and the non-skid bottom did not make the sharpener move. I don't know if mine was slightly defective, but it didn't stand totally straight, it wobbled a little. Seemed either the non-skid circles on the bottom where not properly spaced, or the stand itself is simply not level. However, when holding the sharpener to pull the knives through, it seems to be ok under the force of your hand.
Second, use this sharpener for only Henckels knives, not others. I tried on non-brand name ones, and it didnt sharpen very well. I read that different knives have different degrees at which the knives should be sharpened, which is why a Henckels sharpener should only be used on Henckels knives.
Lastly, the sharpener is awesome! My knives were about 3-4 years old, some I only used the fine II sharpener on right side, some more dull knives I had to use both sharpeners. While the instructions say about 5 pull throughs should be enough, I had to do about 9 times for both of the sharpeners to get a truly sharp blade.
Overall, very easy to use, good quality. I'm happy to have a sharpener that will sharpen and not damage my Henckels!
