The 1520 Knife Sharpener is unique in that it is designed to sharpen both Asian Knives (15 Deg blade angle) and Eurpean/North American (20 Deg blade angle). The advanced spring precision angle guides ensure the perfect sharpening of double edged asian knives, single edged asian knives, thicker bladed asian knives, straight and serrated edged European/North American knives plus pocket and sporting knives. 100% diamond abrasive throughout guarantees against the detempering (softening) of blades as no heat is generated.

I have used this to sharpen Global, Tojiro Senkou and Shun Kaji knives with blades ranging from 7cm to 23cm, with equal success. The sharpener is very powerful so you have to be careful not to press down more than absolutely necessary when you sharpen, otherwise I can see that (as some reviewers have said) it could take too much metal off. But with a very light pressure (basically just holding the knife against the grooves as you slide it towards you, without pushing down) the sharpener does a perfect job, without scratching or marring the knives. And believe me, with the Damascus effect on the Tojiro and the Kaji I was nervous! Also the Shun Kaji are extremely hard (Rockwell 63-64 instead of 61 for the Global) but this didn't pose any problem. On the Kaji I only needed the stropping disks in slot 3, in fact.
I also have sharpened all my Victorinox pocket knives (on the 20° angle slot, ie n°2) with equal success.Read more ›
I had doubts about this 2 stage process (grind to 15 or 20 deg, then polish finish) would give sufficient sharpness compared to a 3 stage process. My concern were unfounded and I get very sharp knives. I find that using either 15 or 20 deg makes little difference - I assume that at 15deg, the sharpness may be shorter lived, but for a domestic kitchen this seems fine. Motor power seems more than adequate with no apparent reduction in speed. although not cheap, I am very pleased with my 1520.
