Key Features

Two StageGood Quality Sharpener

A uni stage sharpener will not help you to sharpen all kinds of knives because different knives have a different angle of sharpening. This product comes with two stages and as a result of that, you can change the stage based on the knife angle. The first stage will sharpen the product and then rejuvenates it. The second stage will polish and hones the knife to give a smooth and bright finish.

It has Non-Slip Cup Holder

When the knife is inserted in the grinder, the tightness of the grinder results in better sharpening quality. If the cup does not hold the knife tightly, then there will be vibration and lose edge sharpening. As a result of this, the knife will not get sharp enough. The hard cup will help in achieving this result.

Built-in Sharp Stop Feature

Too much downward pressure on the knife will lead to breakage of the knife or even dull finish. But, because of the stop feature of this product, the blades stop from moving when there is higher downward pressure. It is not only a safety mechanism but it also increases the coverage area of blades.

Automatic Blade Position Design

If the blades are uniform and if they do not have any spring action, then it is expected that the sharpener will have less effect on the knives. As the blades automatically align themselves in this product there will be even force and grinding resulting in a faster and balanced sharpening effect.
