You will no longer have to toss your old knives thanks to the Chef’s Choice 130 knife sharpener, a highly-efficient electric unit that will make your knives sharper than they were when you first bought them. The compact size makes it very easy to use and the advanced sharpening methods guarantee the best results in sharpening, steeling, and honing. Depending on the color you opt for, this knife sharpener costs between $130 and $159.

Design

Chef’s Choice 130 knife sharpener is built on a wide and sturdy base that measures 12” wide and 12” tall so you can easily maneuver it without it tilting or moving. It is sustained by durable rubber feet that keep it in place and it comes with an easy-to-access power switch so you won’t have to guess how to get it started. To help you blend it in your kitchen design, the Chef’s Choice 130 knife sharpener comes in black, platinum, and white finishes.

Performance

Since most knife sharpeners are only suitable for either straight or serrated blades, you will love the versatility of the Chef’s Choice 130 knife sharpener that works on both blade types, so you won’t need two sharpeners for all your knives at home.
Another great innovation of this electric counter sharpener is the 3-stage sharpening system that allows it to put a sharper blade on your knives. The first stage is the slot that includes a diamond abrasive that re-grinds the knife so the blade will come out perfectly sharpened. The efficiency of this stage ensures that you will not need to use it on the knife for a very long time, so the metal loss will be minimum. The second stage is designed for keeping the sharpness of the knives with a manual steel with very sharp small teeth that deliver a perfect edge. The third stage is a polishing one with a stropping disk that polishes the edges of the knife to maintain the sharpness.

Ease of use

The Chef’s Choice 130 is a high-quality sharpener that can handle any type of knife, even the Asian or Japanese ones, in about 30 seconds. The smooth handling is ensured by stabilizing feet and an angle guide for foolproof. There is no need for adding water or honing oils to the device in order to have it working perfectly, so maintenance is basically non-existing.
Using it won’t be a problem as long as you keep some aspects in mind, aspects that ensure durability and performance. First, never use the sharpener from the backside, but only slide the knife from the front to the back. Second, put enough downward pressure to make sure the entire blade reaches the abrasive disks without damaging the unit. Also, you must alternate passing the blade through both sides of each slot in order to ensure an even sharpening of the blade.

Warranty and support

The Chef’s Choice 130 knife sharpener comes with a limited 3-year that ensures you will receive the sharpest knife blades with every use. You can find many video tutorials online to guide you in using this knife sharpener and there are also an e-mail and a phone number available for you to contact a specialist.
