Question: Is the Chef’s Choice Electric Sharpener safe for my knives?

Answer: Yes, we have used the Chef's Choice 120, 130 and 320 with great success on many knives (including high end brands such and Wusthof and Henckels). You may have heard that electric sharpeners can be bad for knives. It is true that SOME are bad, we've tried some electric sharpeners which we don't care for, and therefore refuse to stock. We like the Chef's Choice 120, 130 and 320 because we feel they offer a good edge for many different types of knives.

Chef's Choice Electric Sharpeners

If you still prefer the more traditional methods or have specialty knives such as single bevel Japanese knives, sharpening stones can be used to provide an edge that can be customized to the knife.

I recently placed my first order after finding you on the web while looking for grinding wheels. I am a customer for life. Here's why. My first order was a simple white grinding wheel for a "normal joe's shop". When I received the wrong wheel (150 grit instead of the ordered 100 grit) I called and without hesitation or the 3rd degree another wheel was sent off. No questioning of my integrity, intelligence or honor. Simply "I am sorry, we'll send the correct wheel off immediately..." The right thing was done by a neat guy. I was treated like an adult. Unbelievable in this day and age...proper...and priceless. Price, performance, responsiveness and customer service par excel-lance. 6-Stars! All my sharpening orders, albeit small shop orders, will now be with you. Promote you I will.
