Chef's Choice M120 knife sharpener
Model 120 Edge Select® Professional knife sharpener sharpens all your favorite knives, straight edge and serrated, from tip to bolster in lightning-fast speed. It enables you to give your knives incredibly sharp, long-lasting edges safely and quickly. And the triple-bevel edge you get from this electric knife sharpener is essentially free of burrs and imperfections that conventional sharpening methods create.
The Diamond Hone Multistage Knife Sharpener relies on a three-step process that uses diamond abrasives and a unique flexible abrasive for precision results. This quality electric knife sharpener takes the guesswork out of giving your favorite kitchen, household, hunting, fishing, and pocket knives better-than-professional-quality sharpness. It never detempers fine blades and helps prolong the life of quality knives.
- Step 1/Sharpening - diamond abrasives create the first angle; use for excessively damaged knives or for maximum edge "bite"
- Step 2/Honing - finer grid diamonds create a second angle; use for routine sharpening
- Step 3/Stropping and Polishing - a revolutionary abrasive material creates a third angle and polished microflute cutters along the super-sharp edge
You can customize the edge to give optimal performance depending on the type of material being cut. For instance, when cutting fibrous foods like pumpkins or squash, you may sharpen the knife in State 1 and 3 only so the edge has more "bite" and can slice cleanly through tough fibers. For delicate tasks like slicing smoked salmon or prosciutto ham, you may like to sharpen in all 3 stages, stropping the edge to an ultra-fine straight edge finish in stage 3, so it glides through these tender foods.
Rugged springs holds knives securely against precision guides for accurate control of sharpening angles.
