How It Works:
To sharpen Asian style knives or modern Euro/American style knives at a 15 degree angle, Stage 1 and Stage 3 are used.
To sharpen 20 degree class knives, Stages 2 and 3 are used.
The initial stages sharpen and hone the edge using 100% diamond abrasives while Stage Three, which is similar to a barber’s strop, polishes the edge with a flexible stropping/polishing disk for a super sharp, microscopically flawless polished edge.
Stage 3 is also used to sharpen serrated knives.
Spring Guide System:
The Chef’sChoice Model 1520 features an advanced spring guide system that insures optimum control for effortless precision guided sharpening, allowing more accurate control of blade’s sharpening angle and eliminating all guesswork.
The advanced spring guide will allow the sharpening of virtually all knives, including thick knives and cleavers.
