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.

    works awesome and for the price it can't be beat. It put an edge on all my knives that were dull. Should have bought this sooner.

    Chef's choice manual knife sharpener is good for sharpening knives in house when you don't want to send them away to be sharpened. Small product so can be easily stored.

    I bought this sharpener for daily use in our kitchen. Our chef loves it to get a quick and effective sharpening without taking off shards of metal. A bit bulky to fit comfortably in a knife roll, but I highly recommend this item.

    from Cobleskill Auxiliary Services Posted on

    critical for our high volume bar. Sharp knives are a must in any kitchen and this is the perfect knife sharpener for the volume in our kitchen. Highly recommend

    Easy to use manual knife sharpener but if you have heavy knife usage I recommend getting a professional knife sharpener that will last a little longer. This is excellent for restaurants that don't have to sharpen as often as we do.

    from Freebirds World Burrito Posted on

    A tool that can't miss in a kitchen, it is an excellent Manual Knife sharpener, have to buy it, high recommended... I use it every day.

    from DAMASCUS RESTAURANT Posted on

    This is our third sharpener, and by far the favorite in the family. In the past, we have used a stone and a small handheld sharpener that runs over the blade, while the blade is facing you. This Chef's Choice sharpener is so much easier than the stone, and so far, lasts longer than the sharpener blades of the small handheld. If/when we need to replace, we'll be purchasing Chef's Choice again. Highly recommended.
