to sharpen them, afterwards I strop with a leather belt, to further polish the edges.
They are then sharp!
Today I went and picked up a GLOBAL G2 Cooks Knife 20cm and a G-48 Santoku fluted knife 18cm in Cardiff, and also a MinoSharp Plus Sharpener 'to try out'.
After bringing them home, I found by comparing the new knives to my older others, they did have the edge on my other sharpened knives, not much but 'the edge' nonetheless;
I ran my knifes only through the fine (yellow) part of the sharpener as these where already there more or less.
I managed in 20 or so stokes to restore my 5-6 year old knifes to factory standard! They are again scarily sharp which I love. Why didn't I do this all along!
Sorry to sound 'cheezy' but this sharpener puts the 'edge' back on your knive/s.
I can tell you that I have tried a Chef's Choice diamond hone, Electric power stone Sharpener & Wetstones (Which are also amazing) and I would send all back except my wetstones and minosharp plus.
The minosharp plus is easier to use than Wetstones and cleaner, but there is something I find satisfying about 'manually' using Wetstones to sharpen a blade, relaxing almost?
From the off if you use the yellow before and after, 10 strokes max, your knife will always stay like razors. I will be from know on, only using to polish up my blades on Wetstones maybe every six months, hell I may be able to go once a year.
I will update on how they recover a blunt blade as soon as I have a chance to try. I may be some time.Read more ›
Then I read about the Minosharp 3. It has 3 water whetstone rollers - coarse, medium and fine and the wheels are replaceable too! The device is simple to use on both my Wusthof and Tojiro knifes and they are now extremely sharp. I did have reservations at first that it is only for Global knives but it works just as well on my knives which have both European and Japanese blades.
How does it work? You lift up the clear plastic lid, fill it with cold water, close the lid and run your knife through it 8 or 9 times starting with the coarse wheel, then the medium wheel and finishing with the fine wheel. The wheels are colour coded and angled too so that it will give about a 12-15 degree angle on the edge. Brilliant!
The only downside I cant say about this device is that it does leave a little scratch on the side of your knife. This is a minor issue as your knife will still be super sharp. Also, it doesnt sharpen right to the tip, about 0.Read more ›
It restored the edge of my precious Global knife and sharpened all the other one perfectly. It is an expensive sharpener but if you want sharp knives and are willing to pay the price, I highly recommend this one.
I've only used the course wheel once, to recover an edge on a very blunt chef's knife. Haven't needed it since, which is good.
The only issue I had was that, if I try slide the knife perfectly parrallel to the grooves in the plastic, it catches on the wheels - the stroke isn't smooth. To get a smooth stroke, I need to rotate the knife along the vertical a tiny bit. Looking from above, I'd imagine it works like this: ¦|¦, whereas instead I have to use it like this: ¦/¦. I don't know if I'm doing it wrong, or if the design is a little off, but it feels weird. Doesn't really matter though, as it works.
-This is an easy to use product ideal for anyone who is unfamiliar with or looking for an alternitive to stones.
-Very clean to use no mess-you could have this sat on your worktop while cooking and sharpen as you go.
-knives come out sharp but not quite the razor edge you get with a stone but the edge looks like it will last.
-the finish on the edge is not as polished as you get with a proper fine whetstone but you get a usable edge quickly and cleanly.
-The edge may become more polished once your knives are sharp enough they nolonger require the use of a course stone.
-replacable wheel mean the product should last.
-I'm comparing it to quality whetstones which is unfair but tells you something about the quality of the product.
I think the biggest endorsment I can give this product is I would let somebody else use it on my knives. I won't let anybody else near my knives.
This product won't replace my whetstones BUT this product might replace my steel.
Over all I would reccomend this product for home and domestic use.
