Asked a fisherman how he sharpened his knives after I saw him fillet fresh steelhead. Bought mine a week later and am very pleased at the compactness and quality. I love having sharp knives!
Having moved somewhere where professional sharpening is hard to find, I was delighted to discover the Brod&Taylor sharpener. I’m getting professional results for the price I use to pay for a single sharpening of my four go-to knives. Easy-Peasy. Wouldn’t do it any other way now.
Bought the Professional Knife Sharpener several years ago. Once I learned how to use it I was impressed at how easy it is to keep all the knives at their peek usefulness. Having visited my brother in law family home this summer and experiencing dreadfully dull knives I bought one for them. I even delivered and sharpened all their cutlery. Life IS good
I am happy with my purchase but would appreciate information about sharpening of scissors
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.
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.
