Product Description

Product Description

The 316 Asian Knife Sharpener is unique in that it is designed to sharpen Asian Knives with a 15 Deg blade angle. It will work effectively on double edged knives eg Santoku, single edged knives eg Sashimi and thicker balded knives eg Deba. The advanced spring precision angle guides ensure the perfect sharpening of all Asian knives. 100% diamond abrasive throughout guarantees against the detempering (softening) of blades as no heat is generated and prevents burring.

Box Contains

1 x 316 Sharpener

I only have Japanese knives, mostly Tojiro and Global, with a Kai Shun in the mix. Apart from their specific profile and edges, part of the trouble with these knifes is that because they are very hard (at least Rockwell 61) they are also very difficult to sharpen well (the benefit being that they keep their edge for longer). I have tried several methods for sharpening them: specialised ceramic stones, traditional and ceramic steel, even a special Tojiro sharpener. I got OK results only and with a lot of effort.

The Chef's Choice sharpener is different: you do need to re-hone (in slots 1) the Tojiro knives for a while as I believe that their angle is slightly different (16° instead of 15°) but once you've done that and done the polishing in slots 2, you do get razor sharp edges with comparatively very little effort. Global knives are dead easy to sharpen and in most cases do not need re-honing. The sharpener itself is very solidly made and quite heavy, which means that it does not move. it does not seem to wear out the blades (which is why I stayed well clear off popular sharpeners with a V cut: they work, but they also damage your knives very quickly). The diamond abrasives do the trick even on the Tojiro and the Kai Shun.

I leave the sharpener plugged in in my utility room, this way when a knife needs sharpening it's done literally in under 30s (once they have been re-honed, maintenance is only a matter for 3 x 3-5s pulls on each side in slots 2, depending on the length of the blade, and then about 3 quick pulls. Obviously for one edge blades you only use one of the two slots for each stage.

Try it, you won't regret it!

There's not really a lot to say. What's the point of having brilliant blades costing £100s of pounds and then ruining them with a bad sharpener? This products will resharpen blunted knives, though it might take a bit of a while to do this for a really badly abused knife. When resharpened, we find that with decent Japanese knives, used regularly, we need to re-sharpen about once every two months or so, and hone once a week to keep a perfect cutting edge.

Although it's designed for "Asian" (ie Japanese) profiled knives, because with their harder steel, they can be sharpened to 15 degrees on each side, it can perfectly well re-profile and sharpen the more obtuse angled western knives (normally sharpened to 20 degrees. However if the steel isn't good enough to take it, they will need more frequent re-sharpening. In fact Chef's choice also make sharpeners for 20degree knives and even multi-angled sharpeners, though these are a lot more expensive.

The really impressive thing about this tool is that it is so quick and easy to use, when used to maintain an edge on sharp sian knives. A couple of strokes once a week and the knife is like new again. WELL worth the cost, which is more or less comparable with that of one decent Japanese knife.

I ordered this for colleagues in another department, within our commercial premises, who use these sharpeners because they are so reliable.

The only reason they like it, but not love it, is because ideally they would like to be able to replace the grey guards when they become marked/ cut / distressed rather than the entire unit each time.

Overall though, these get a big thumbs up!

It is an exellent sharpener for the price. I can easily sharpen my japaneese knives and also convert some euro-style knives.

I have mainly Global knives and this is so much easier than using a whetstone even with the sharpening guides. A perfect 15 degree sharpening angle and with the ability to hone the knife as well as a basic sharpen means that I keep a very sharp edge on the blades for longer than just using a ceramic "steel"

Thought it was expensive but it has done a tremendous job of resharpening my knives, both Japanese and European. It is far better than non electric types and easy to use. A must if you value having a sharp knife
