Works great!

I'm suprised at the performance of this knife sharpener. I'd neglected my knives, yet they are like new-or even better now. Great to have this at hand in my kitchen!

Knives are happy

Very nicely made sharpener. I immediately sharpened all the knives in the kitchen. All knives took a liking to the new sharpener. I even did the bread knife and steak knives. They have never been sharper. I even did a big Bowey Buck knife and a cleaver. Good job on making a great sharpener that even looks good on the counter.

Finally: sharp knives!

I've been on a lifelong search for the perfect knife sharpener. My grocery store used to sharpen knives but COVID ended that service. I found a cookware store several towns away that would sharpen them for $3 apiece with a 24-hour turnaround. Finally, right? Not quite. I chop a lot of raw veg and blades get dull quickly on a bamboo chopping block so I kept looking off and on…until I put a deep slice in my middle finger pad while quartering a raw beet with a heavy and recently sharpened knife that bounced up and bit me. Back to the hunt. As my finger slowly healed, my mouse hand kept browsing, eventually landing on the Professional. It came quickly, it’s easy to use, and has a place of honor on my counter. My search has finally ended: thanks!

Sharp made simple. Brod & Taylor's Knife Sharpeners are built with a unique sharpening technology to sharpen any knife with ease. 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. The carbide sharpeners are mounted on patented spring-action bars that adjust automatically to different blade angles. With the variable angle capability, our sharpeners work beautifully on standard knives, serrated knives, single-bevel Japanese knives, hunting and pocket knives, and more.

Technology. Brød & Taylor sharpeners use two extremely hard, man-made tungsten carbide sharpeners ground to a specialized shape. Mounted on a spring-action bars, the patented system functions as 3 distinctly different sharpeners.

Hone. With the knife tip up - realign a rolled edge without removing metal. Great for daily maintenance.

Sharpen. With the knife tip down - quickly restore the correct bevel shape to very dull or damaged knives.

Serrated. For serrated knives, pull the knife through at an angle to hone and sharpen each serration.

Our VG2 and Original sharpeners use the same tungsten-carbide sharpening technology, but the VG2 creates sharper edges on even the hardest knives, has a wider blade angle range, and lasts up to 2x longer.
