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.

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.
