Have had several economic sharpeners over the years this one, hands down, beats them by a mile. A must have for any weekend warrior or home cook. A sharp knife makes all the difference. And this tool makes it so.
Looked at many brands and styles before choosing a knife sharpener. This one was recommended by our son who works in a barbecue/smokehouse restaurant. So glad I listened. This sharpener does a great job, and does it fast.
Great product, works like a charm! Simple enough for anyone to master. Only gripe is that last year (2021) they gave a set of replacement sharpener bars with this model (but not with the professional one, go figure!) but this year, no free replacement bars. Oh well!
This thing is rad. It cleans up blades nicely, put on a sharp edge that seems to be stable, and is easy to use. I’ve sharpened multiple different blade styles and each worked very well. I have not yet use the serrated blade sharpener. Highly recommend.
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.
