Product Details


Product Description

This electric knife sharpener presents all the sharpening options in one compact appliance. It professionally sharpens, steels, or strops all brands and types of knives -- straight edge or serrated, kitchen, Asian style, sports, and pocket knives -- in seconds. Three stages make it possible to obtain a factory-style edge quickly and effortlessly. Stage 1, using 100% diamond abrasives, sharpens the edge. Stage 2 is a super-hardened miniature honing steel that develops a shaving sharp edge with ultra-sharp microscopic teeth, providing a superior edge "bite". In stage 3, a flexible stropping disk polishes the edge to hair-splitting sharpness. Using these stages in different combinations produces custom edges, suited to a particular cutting task. Built-in, high precision, user friendly elastomeric angle guides guarantee fool-proof sharpening.
Colour/Pattern: Platinum-tone
Warranty: 3 years limited
NOTE: Chef's Choice Professional Sharpening Station, model 130

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must! Jan. 26 2013
** UPDATE ** 1 YEAR LATER

I love it as much as the day that I got it! I use Step 3 regularly to keep my knifes sharp. I even have some visitors come with their knives to have them sharpened!

****

I've been sharpening my kitchen knifes and my pocket knifes using a handheld sharpener for years.

Over the years, the edges became more and more damaged. Just like I one day evolved from cheap knifes to better knives, I figured that it was time to move up in the sharpening world as well!

I spent a few weeks debating the 320, the 110, the 120, or the 130. I watched all the videos on Chef's choice website to make up my mind and read the few articles available on the web.

In the end, I settled for the 130. I think that it's versality will last me through the years. I like tthat you can create difference edges using stages 2 and 3.

My kitchen knifes are Victorinox with fibrox handles (the lowest price "good" knives IMO). The oldest, the chef's knife is 8 years old.

Stage 1 took quite a bit of steel away from the older and more damaged knifes. However, now that the edge is made, I rarely use it so I don't expect to lose much more steel in the future.

The smaller knifes were a bit more ackwared to sharpen, especially the pocket knives. However, I adjusted how I hold the knife when I pass it through and it feels fine now.

In terms of drawbacks. Knifes like my Victorinox that have think handles make it difficult to work all the way through. As a result, some of the knives not have a butt where they didn't have one before.

Also ... be sure the read the instructions. Practice with the motor off to get the feel of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Didn't know how sharp my knives could be! Nov. 14 2011

I have half a dozen go to kitchen knives that I was sharpening with a hand held sharpener and tuning with a steel. I thought they were pretty good until I watched someone slice an onion on a cooking show and realized that I couldn't do what they were doing with any of my knives. After sharpening each one I am astonished by how well they now perform. It's true that the sharper your knife, the safer the user. Slicing, dicing, paring... everything is a joy to do. I would put my knives against a professionaly sharpened blade any time. Highly recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome product and customer service! May 29 2011
Cutlery and Beyond were extremely responsive with their great customer service...I knew the produce was going to be great because we've owned one that was 15 years old and was definitely ready to be replaced, but I will definitely order from them again. Great service and prompt! Thank you!

Decades of frustration vanish in a flash. In 'How to Cook Everything' Bittman keeps his advice brief and blunt. Just buy an electric sharpener. I did. He is right again. And, I shall never think about it again, other than to advise you gentle reader to follow along.

It does not take very long to get used to sharpening any style of knife with this sharpener and it's "steel" function is far easier than using a traditional sharpening steel.
