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.

3 Stages

  • Stage 1 - Electric Diamond for 15° Sharpening
  • Stage 2 - Electric Diamond for 20° Sharpening
  • Stage 3 - Manual Ultra Fine Diamond for Honing and Polishing

Chef's Choice Hybrid 290 AngleSelect Diamond Hone Knife Sharpener sharpens traditional traditional European/American kitchen knives (20°), Asian style kitchen knives (15°), serrated knives, light sporting and pocket knives. The Model 290 features elegant, durable stainless steel knife guides and features.


To be a good value, a sharpener must sharpen effectively, yet be less expensive than other sharpeners in its same category. The Chef's Choice Hybrid 290 has versatility to do American or Asian style knives, sharpens quickly, and more importantly, the edge it creates is very sharp and durable. The Chef's Choice #290 is engineered and assembled in the USA. One Year Manufacturer's Warranty.

Thanks John, I am so glad to be working with people who know their products and how to use them. You have a very informative and well laid out website and I learned a lot. It was a rainy Sunday and I watched every video and read through each article. The information you provided was very helpful in teaching technique and helping me decide what to buy. Also your products are so well thought out, that no matter what stone you prefer (oil, water or diamond), there is a nice package available for a beginner. All of the products you put together each had their own advantages and believe me, each one spent some time in the shopping cart until I made my final decision.
