I work as a chef in a busy hotel and sharp knives are necessities in my trade. The first time I brought along my Chef’s Choice Multi-Edge Diamond Hone Knife Sharpener, the other guys in the kitchen dismissed it as nothing special. As time passed, they noticed that my knives were in far better condition than their knives that were of the same age as mine.
Naturally, they asked me how I maintained the sharpness of my knives and I simply showed off my Chef’s Choice Diamond Hone knife sharpener. Soon enough, almost everyone waited for their turn to try my little gadget. Now, every Chef in the kitchen, even the guy who used to sharpen his knives using a whetstone bought one for himself.
They said that they have seen similar devices like this and they were not confident on what it can do. Some probably tried out only the imitations hence, they were very disappointed. In fact, they even think that the fake sharpeners they tried weakened the tempering of their knives.
On the contrary, the Chef’s Choice Multi-Edge Knife Sharpener does not weaken the metal, but instead prolongs the life of the edge and the overall usability of the blades. There are no visible signs that my sharpener is wearing out the blade by eating the metal. The edges of my dullest blades were recreated without any signs that the quality of the metal is being reduced.
Probably the feature that everyone loves is the fact that it can sharpen even serrated knives. It truly has the right to be called the Multi-Edge knife sharpener because even a bread knife can easily achieve sharpness with it.
The fact that anyone can easily learn how to use Chef’s Choice Multi-Edge Diamond Hone Knife Sharpener Model 460 is a big plus. Even a person who has little to no understanding of how to use a whetstone can use it. Just make sure that you read and understand the manual carefully first. Keep in mind that each groove in the device has a different purpose. Trial and error in using these grooves can cause damage to your knives.
All in all, I can say that I love Diamond Hone Knife Sharpener ; in fact all of the other chefs in the kitchen love it too. With a little practice you can achieve razor sharpness from even the most worn out knives.
