Chef'sChoice 320 FlexHone/Strop Professional Electric Knife Sharpener
Well, I have decided to purchase this knife sharpener from all the positive reviews here on Bass Pro, I must admit it, that it really does put an edge and then some. The 2nd final stage really polishes and gave it an extra sharpness to the knife edges. After going through all my knifes from hunting knifes to home cutting knifes, I am impress of it's performance, it was so sharp, that when my wife was cleaning it, she cut herself by accidental and she wasn't aware on how sharp the knifes were, she is more careful when she cleans it. I hear lots of reviews on other people saying that the sharpener did not meet their results, well those that did say it did not work, my suggestion is to follow the instructions on the manual before performing the workings of the sharpener tool. With a somewhat dull edge on some knifes, I have pulled each edge of the blade side slowly pulling it towards me into each slot by counting how long the knife is in inches, if it is 8 inches, then it would take 8 seconds per side, some my vary on the edge of the knife, that's is saying on the number 1 slot of the left side, then doing one pass on the right side, it took me 3 sides per slot #1, then finishing it on # 2 slot with 2 pulls per side, wow the results was fantastic, that's just my results and some may vary with less per side of the knife blade edge. My 25 year old knifes are way better now, then sending them out to the commercial sharpeners. It's a keeper.........

Satisfied with my purchase
I had been wanting to buy an electric sharpener for a long time. We have a lot of knives and I've always sharpened the good knives with a stone which works great but is a bit time consuming as I'm no expert and also have tried a few of the inexpensive hand held sharpeners which are ok but wont give you the results of a stone. This unit does the job.Compact, very easy to use with a little practice and the finish is as good as I was getting before without having to spend as much time. They claim after a good edge is achieved you only need to use the finihing stone when necessary to fine tune. If thats true I'll be more apt to maintain my knives with little effort required on a regular basis.

After you sharpen your knives with this tool, be careful. Your knives will be sharper than you can imagine. I have always prided myself in being able to sharpen knives using a stone. My wife even commented that she was surprised I bought a sharpener because I do such a good job the old fashioned way. What she doesn't know is the OFW is difficult and time consuming, so with a gift card I purchased this sharpener.
WOW! Talk about easy, quick and great results, that's what you will get.
Neighbors are always asking me to sharpen their knives and I used to dread doing it, but not any more.

I love a sharp knife/tools
I have two expensive pieces of sharpening equipment in my shop along with about 20 different stones and several pull through diamond sharpeners but none equals the edge this products produces with such little effort. I highly recommend this sharpener to anyone wanting to put a professional edge on all their cutlery and hunting knives, etc.
