Patented spring-action sharpening bars made of tungsten-carbide last over 5 years (replacements available) and adjust to the angle of the knife blade. Control the angle from 12 degrees for a super-sharp fillet knife to 20 degrees for a rugged chopping blade. Base constructed of rugged PA 66 Nylon.
It sits by the wooden block and is always ready for use. After 3 weeks I am still undecided as to how well it works. I got a flat sharpening rod that seems to work well.
It’s a Christmas gift. We haven’t used it yet. But I will be happy to review it after we do.
He loves the knife, I scored when I bought your knife.
Easy to use, small enough to store, this knife sharpener is equal to the best professional chef-approved sharpeners. I am a professional cook. I can’t get along without it!
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.
