This professional knife sharpener sharpens both straight-edge and serrated Western-style knives in a matter of minutes. As compact as it is efficient, the high-performance electric sharpener uses an advanced two-stage process to guarantee precision results.

  • Designed for use with German knives.
  • State-of-the-art two-stage sharpening creates “gothic arch” shaped edges, which are stronger and longer lasting than hollow-ground or conventional “V” edges.
  • Stage one sharpens with 100% fine diamond abrasives; stage two finely hones edges using advanced micron-size 100% diamond technology.
  • The precisely formed conical diamond abrasive disks gently apply optimal sharpening pressure, so edges stay in perfect temper.
  • Precision guides automatically position and stabilize the knife during sharpening, ensuring fast, foolproof results.
  • This versatile machine is ideal for sharpening all types of knives, including kitchen, household, sporting and pocket knives.
  • Can be used to sharpen both straight and serrated knives.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from razor sharp Bought this for my husband to sharpen our extensive collection of Wusthof knives. Does a fantastic job-each knife took less than a minute to sharpen-I highly recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product!!! I bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband. Our knives were so bad that we considered throwing them out. I am not kidding. It took a while to sharpen them -they really were that bad- but now are like new again. Instead of buying new knives, just get this and sharpen them. My husband loves it and I do, too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must-have in any kitchen This (or similar) device should be present in any kitchen before any of the more expensive knife sets are bought. I have to say that with this sharpener even relatively inexpensive store brand knives, once properly sharpened, produce great results. I feel like a fool for not using it earlier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT QUALITY KNIFE SHARPENER After struggling for years with a single stage knife sharpener, this two stage sharpener is heavenly. First sharpens the blade, then polishes it smooth. Highly recommend. Good solid construction.
