Value-Priced Hybrid for Euro/American and Asian Style Knives. Chef's Choice Model 290 does both 15° and 20° Angles!
20° and 15°
The Chef's Choice Hybrid #290 Sharpener is value-priced sharpener that will sharpen both traditional western style (20°) and Asian style (15°) knives. What makes it a hybrid is that it has two electric diamond stages and one manual ultra-fine diamond pull though stage. The unique Criss-Cross™ technology creates a very fine edge with lots of "bite". Stages 1 and 2 are electric with Stage 1 dedicated to 15° edge knives and Stage 2 for 20° knives. Stage 3 is used for polishing both types of knives as well as for sharpening serrated knives. We were so impressed with the #290 that we rated it Best Hybrid for Japanese and American Knives.
- Stage 1 - Electric Diamond for 15° Sharpening
