Chef'sChoice EdgeSelect Diamond Hone Electric Knife Sharpeners
Now That's Sharp!
There are sharpeners for every type of edged tool; but none will do it all. This one is for knives. And it does knives easily, without damage.
It is simple to operate. It takes very little time to do the whole set.
The edge is precise and very sharp. They cut effortlessly and hold the edge very well. If we avoid the sink or other damage, they should only need a quick honing in slot '3' or maybe a pass through '2' and '3'.

Awesome Christmas Present
I bought this knife sharpener based off of its reviews and my boyfriend can't put it down. This is not the knife sharpener he originally wanted but everyone loved it compared to the one he wanted.
He has to show all his buddies that hunt and he really enjoyed how quickly he could sharpen the knifes. I think he sharpened like 20 Christmas day and never missed a beat during the party.
I highly recommend this for everything from hunting knives to pocket knives to kitchen knives.

Should have gotten sooner
I had been thinking about buying this sharpener for quite a while. I guess the price kept getting in the way so i tried some of the cheap hand held kinds that realy didnt work to well. Then i spent a little more and bought a diamond hone (50$) that worked good till the edge was to far gone. I would bring the edge back with the carbide sharpener that works by removeing metal and touch it up with the hone. It gives you a sharp edge but doesnt last long and i was wearing out the diamond hone to quickly. So i got the model 120 sharpener and started on the kitchen knives. I had the edge profile so wacked out that it took a lot more pulls then normal to get the edge back in shape. It took me awhile on the first knife to figure out how many pulls i needed on each stage to get the edge back and then the rest of the knives were easy. I would consider this extreme and the 120 worked great. When i finished all the knives i put it back in the box and have not had it back out yet. Thats because it did so well just a couple pulls on my hone and i have a sharp edge. Now it will just take a few pulls on the 120 to keep the edges in good shape. It worked great, it was worth the money and i wish i have gotten it sooner.

i have used it once on the kitchen knives. It did a great job on every knife in just a few passes. A couple of them need tweaking a bit to be a little sharper but they were butter knife sharp to begin with. I really like this product so far. I will use it shortly on my hunting knives and folding hunters. I expect another good finish.
