Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyEnough 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'. January 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by BassPro38 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. January 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by renagadeX600 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. September 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by doorgunner71 used once 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. July 29, 2011

A:No. This model will NOT sharpen scissors. This model is for knives and cleavers that use a 20 degree edge 'V'. Scissors or shears are usually at 75 to 90 degrees and would require a different configuration.
A:Yes. That's a qualified yes. It will not redefine the little serrations. If the edge is scalloped on one side you can take a grinding pass in slot '2' on the smooth side and then hone both sides on slot '3'. If it is scalloped on both sides you can take paired passes in slot '3'. This will align the points of the serration and that is the part of the edge that cuts.
A:cant get any knife sharp right now
A:I would not recommend this Model 120 for sharpening serrated blades.
Details:I recently received the chefschoice model 510 and am not satisfied. Can you compare the extra benefits of this model? Which is the best model you sell??
A:I have a model 130 and am totally satisfied with it. It is not have magnets to hold the blade in place. There are slots that you drag the blade through that hold the blade at the proper angle. Once you get an edge on the blade with the rough wheel, a couple of passes on the polishing wheel finishes the sharpening process. If your knife gets dull, you can usually hit it a couple of times with the polishing wheel.
A:I am not sure about the 510 but the 120 is awesome. It has 3 stages with a ploishing stage last and has spring guides instead of magnet guides. I sharpened a small 11/2" blade pocket knife to where it will shave the hair off your arm.
