After looking at the Japanese sharpening stone in the drawer day after day, and not picking it up while my knives got duller and duller, this device is a revelation. Did some sharpening initially and now it’s easy to hone after every use. I bought one for my son and he loves it too—he gave me the sharpening stone so fair play.
There are no bad knives, only dull knives. I cannot believe I waited this long for a professional knife sharpener other than a sharpening steel. Sharpen, hone, polishes - The VG2 Professional keeps my Gerber Balance Plus blades in top condition. The VG2 Pro is a gem.
This is a great sharpener. Once you get it figured out it works like a dream. I recommend this to anyone !!!
Sharpens great- a bit of a learning curve.
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.
