Chef's Choice knife sharpener

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I have worked in both a meat packing plant and at a retail meat store so I'm pretty good at sharpening knives but to do it right it takes a long time when you have quite a number of knives to do. I have tried a few different brands of knife sharpeners and found they either didn't get the knife very sharp or they didn't have enough power.

 

I found this one at Fleet Farm and it has worked great. It' fast and when your done you could shave with the knife. I cost about $120 and worth it in my opinion. 2thumbs.gif

 

Great knife sharpener

 

Detail of sharpener

 

It only takes about 1 minute per knife the first time to get the bevel correct then after that it's only 20 - 30 seconds when you have to re-sharpen.

 

I just have to make sure to tell the wife when I do it so she doesn't cut herself when the knife goes through so easy.

I've never owned a decent knife sharpener, but this sounds like one worth saving my pennies for. Thanks for the review smoke.

I am looking around for ideas on sharpeners too.  A good friend recommended this one....said it's the only one he will ever use.  It's on Amazon too.

AND....I have a guy that comes to my Quilt Shop and sharpens scissors and knives too.  He works cheap...and does a great job too! biggrin.gif

I have an ancient full set of chicago cutlery, we got as a wedding gift 28 years ago. I bought an emery strap wheel for my garage grinder sharpener that i use for various garden tools. It works great. However, they are carbon steel. I would not use it on stainless blades, like my Sadoku chef knife. For those i use a stone or steel.
