Fastest and easiest way to sharpen any knife. Patented spring action bars invented in Austria by a master knife maker make sharpening foolproof. Precision ground tungsten-carbide safely sharpens all types of knives including serrated and high-quality Damascus knives. Solid stainless steel base.
Safe to use with the finest knives. Re-align edges before they roll over and dull. Polish a micro-bevel on the finest cutlery without fear of damaging blades. These two steps will keep knives razor sharp without removing any metal. Directions printed on bottom.
best sharpening tool I’ve used
I bought one as a Christmas gift after spending a long time researching it and reading all the comments regarding Austrian blades, is created by an Austrian master etc. No where on the website does it actually say the product is made in China so I found that quite misleading - I like to know where products I buy are manufactured so there was a lack of transparency as no where on the website does it actually say Chinese made. I only found this out when the box arrived and it was written on the bottom. It wasn't sent in any bubble wrap or in a box so the packaging was damaged (it was directly put in a thin postage satchel). I contacted support as soon as it arrived but as it is Christmas I was sent an email telling me that I won't hear back until after the 10th Jan.
I've been needing a knife sharpener for a long time but never saw one that impressed me. When I learned about Brod & Taylor, and did some research, I decided to purchase it. My favorite knives are now sharp again and such a pleasure to use!
I purchased this knife sharpener about a year ago. It does a great job. Easy to use with excellent results. I like it so much that I purchase two more for family members for Christmas. I recommend it without reservations
How it Works
Brød & Taylor sharpeners use a completely different sharpening technique, borrowed from the high-technology metal machining industry. Two extremely hard man-made tungsten carbide sharpeners are ground to a precision, specialized shape. Mounted on a spring-action bars, the patented system functions as three distinctly different sharpeners, with the function determined by the angle of the knife as it is pulled through. They are unique in their ability to perform four knife sharpening functions:
Realign a bent edge without removing metal. Great for daily maintenance.
Quickly restore the correct bevel shape to very dull or damaged knives.
Create a super-smooth and sharp edge.
Pull the knife through at an angle to hone and sharpen each serration.
Carbide Sharpening Surfaces
Unique, ultra-hard, precision ground tungsten carbide sharpening surfaces, like those used in high-precision machine tools, quickly create a more perfect “v” shape and a superior cutting edge. With a simple change in hand position, these sharpeners also fine sharpen (hone) and polish a perfect beveled edge.
The carbide sharpeners are mounted on patented spring-action bars that adjust automatically to accommodate different blade angles. With the variable angle capability, our sharpeners work beautifully on serrated knives and single-bevel Japanese knives, as well as standard smooth knives.
Long Lasting and Durable
The sharpening mechanism is durable and can be expected to last at least 5 years with normal use. Replacement sharpening bars are available for the Professional and Classic countertop models.
