Rated 3 out of 5 by Jeffrey from Great Sharpener but ... I've used this sharpener for a couple of years. I used it almost daily and it performed better than expected. Unfortunately, the grinding wheels wear out; one of mine separated at the seam. I have tried without luck to find the right size replacement wheels at Williams Sonoma, Global USA, Amazon and elsewhere. That makes this sharpener an expensive throw away tool.Date published: 2020-01-14Rated 5 out of 5 by fja10 from Works so well! Purchased this sharpener recently for use with our Global CROMOVA 18 Chef's Knife. The sharpener is super easy to use, and the results were incredible. We had allowed our knife to get too dull ... but now it's back to razor sharp.Date published: 2019-09-15Rated 5 out of 5 by Ladan from Easy, great quality I have about 30 global knives and have tried 3 knife sharpeners. This is by FAR the best and easiest sharpener out there. Very easy to use and quickly sharpens the knives. Love it.Date published: 2019-04-10Rated 5 out of 5 by SarahB970 from Easy to use! I bought a set of Global knives about six months ago and a couple of them were in desperate need of sharpening. They were an investment and I wanted to make sure I took care of them properly, so I did a little research and picked up this sharpener. It could not be easier to use! I filled the wheel compartment with water, and within two minutes I had sharpened, washed, dried, and stored my knives, and cleaned up the sharpener itself. My knives feel brand new, with almost zero effort on my part. I am THRILLED with this purchase!Date published: 2017-08-02
What angle does this knife sharpener allow knives to be sharpened to?Hi Erin, The 2-Stage Ceramic Sharpener does not remove metal from your blade the way a whetstone would, so you can use it on any straight edged blade without worrying about changing the original angle. This tool is designed to finely hone your blade edge using two different ceramic wheels, and it can be used to refine the cutting edge of any knife of any brand as long as the blade is not serrated.Date published: 2019-07-23
Would this be OK to sharpen Shun knives?Absolutely, you can use the Ceramic Sharpener on any non-serrated blade, regardless of brand.Date published: 2019-05-21
