Like all Edlund products, the model 401 electric knife sharpening is designed for ease of cleaning and maintenance. As a safety precaution, you should always unplug the unit before cleaning. For added protection, a safety interlock switch has been installed to prevent accidental operation when the guidance system has been removed. The rugged easy-track guidance system simply pops out and can be run right through the dishwasher. With the guide removed, the inside can be brushed or wiped clean. Edlund recommends cleaning the unit after each sharpening procedure to help keep knives of wheel grit and sharpening residue. The sharpening wheel has been designed for long life. Although replacement depends on the number of knives and frequency of sharpening, the wheel can be easily replaced by the operator when necessary. Each replacement wheel kit comes complete with a positioning tool and Allen wrench for mistake-proof installation.

Our new Edlund model 401 Electric Knife Sharpener is so easy to operate, anyone on your staff can learn to sharpen their knives quickly and safely. Your best results will be achieved as you develop a feel for the proper pressure, speed, and consistency while you guide the blade through the sharpening module. To begin sharpening, simply turn on the rocker switch and the sharpener quickly reaches operating speed. Hold the knife firmly in a horizontal position. Place the flat side of the blade against the outer edge of the guide slot as close to the hilt as possible. Once the cutting edge engages the sharpening wheel draw the knife along the guide in one smooth and continuous horizontal motion following the curvature of the blade. Repeat this procedure on the opposite side of the sharpening guide, continue alternating from side to side until the desired edge is achieved. A common question we hear is, how hard should I press the knife against the wheel as it turns? The weight of the knife itself provides enough downward pressure. If too much force is applied, the pressure-sensitive motor will shut down to prevent burning and damage to the blade. Almost any knife can be brought back to a like-new edge with the Edlund model 401. Extremely dull knives may require multiple passes on each side to achieve satisfactory results, but once an edge has been restored, just one or two passes of the knife periodically through both guides is all you need to maintain your knives for years. While the chef’s knife is the most frequently used knife in a commercial kitchen, the model 401 is equally effective at sharpening virtually any knife used in your operation. Even scalloped steak and bread knives can be sharpened easily by passing just the flat-edged side of the knife through the guidance system.

    knife sharpener edges sharpeners units blades duty decent cycle cut
    I have Use this sharpener before, I am buying one for myself in a couple of days I called the manufacturing company and they said that it grinds at 11° that is perfect for me I do not like 20 or 30 or higher I like the Japanese style of grind between 10 and 13° This is a wonderful grinder heavy duty does the job that is supposed to do I grind a lot of knives every day because I cook a lot do a lot of barbecuing so cutting is constant it’s wonderful to see a product made very well it’s hard to find that everything is made from plastic now it’s unfortunate this is made here in the United States I will always buy from the US I don’t buy from foreign countries anybody that buys this product will be happy with your purchase guaranteed, John
    I own one of these units. With a little care, and some practice, this unit can obtain decent results. Your edges wont be polished, but they will cut most produce and meat in the kitchen. I do warn you, blades can be burned, and the duty cycle is 15 min ON with 15 minutes OFF. If you plan on using this commercially, just don't let those blades get too hot!
    Its a real knife sharpener. I have washed my time with cheap sharpeners till I found this the Edlund 401. Its the best thing since sliced bread.
    This is the only electric knife sharpener you will ever need!! Quickly puts a sharp edge back on any knife!! Dull knives will be no more with this attractive sharpener!!!
