Handheld Knife Sharpener

Handheld Knife Sharpener

Not only is a dull knife a dangerous knife, but it’s just a pain to work with. Hi I’m Steve Ziegler, product expert at the WEBstaurant store. Today I’m showing how to use our two Chef’s Choice manual knife sharpeners. I have both the two stage Chef’s Choice 450 for all of your straight edge knives, and also the Chef’s Choice 430 for your serrated blades. Here is how the Chef’s Choice two stage knife sharpener works. First you’re going to want to take your dull knife, put it in your right hand, and as you can see there is nothing worse than a paring knife that can’t cut through a tomato. So we’re going to dry that off. You’re going to put your Chef’s Choice knife sharpener right on a clean, steady, dry surface. Put the knife in stage 1 (and this is clearly marked stage 1 and stage 2, which is tough to see on video but it’s there) and you’re going to want to put the heel of your knife in, and press the blade up against those rollers. We’re going to go 25 times back and forth, just with light downward pressure. Subsequent times when you go to sharpen this you won’t need to do it so often. Once you are done with stage 1, and you’ve done your 25 passes, you’re going to want to go to stage 2. This is actually going to put a second edge on your knife; a micro bevel edge for added sharpness. Again, press the blade up against the rollers and use almost no pressure in this stage. We’re going to go 10 passes, clean off your knife, and then let’s see if we have a sharp knife. You can see how much better that this knife is. Again, you don’t have to do as many passes the second time you use the knife sharpener. Now that we’ve spoken about the Chef’s Choice 450 for straight edge blades, let’s take a look at the Chef’s Choice 430 sharpener for serrated edge blades. Again you are going to want to put this on a clean, dry, steady surface about waste high. Grab your serrated edge blade and how many passes you are going to take through this sharpener depends on the type of blades that you have. It can be anywhere from 10-50. Just check your blade on a tomato in the middle of your sharpening to see if it’s become sharp enough. You don’t want to over-sharpen with this. Again, put your left hand on the sharpener and just run your blade through. You’re going to want to put no downward pressure on this. That light sawing sound you hear is the sound of the 100% diamond abrasives doing the work for you. Now that we’re just about done I’m going to take this and clean the blade off, and let’s just check it on one of these tomatoes here. I think we have this knife sharp enough. Well thank you for watching, and if you have any questions or comments about our knife sharpeners feel free to use our live chat button.

    Brought several old serrated knives I thought were dead back to life. It's not for heavy duty sharpening, but it's a great value for the money.

    Seem's to work pretty well. I am sure it doesn't sharpen as well as a electric sharpener, but it get's the knife sharp in a pinch.

    from The Weekday Cafe Posted on

    It is a hard job to keep serrated knives sharp, and most methods destroy the ridges that make the knives work in the first place. This product does a fantastic job of keeping the blades sharp without filing off the serration. I have found that the slower I pull the knives through the slot, the better. Very good product and I highly recommend it!

    It's hard to keep serrated blades sharp, but this does the trick and is easy to use. It's also cheaper than replacing the knife when it dulls

    This serrated knife sharpener has been working very well for us. It's easy to use. Easy to keep clean. Easy to move around. We would recommend it.

    The Edgecraft Chef's Choice 430 Manual Serrated Knife Sharpener is great for the price. We use it all of the time in the resturant. It was a great item for the price.

    I wasn't so sure how well this would work, but it works great. We have an old old bread knife that we thought we were going to have to get ride of because we could get it sharp enough to go through my bakers soft bread. Well, after putting through this sharper, it's back in business.
