Chef's Choice 316 Asian Knife Sharpener
The Chef's Choice® 316 Asian Sharpener puts a factory sharp, precision edge on all contemporary Asian style knives, Chinese style cleavers and the thinner, traditional single-bevel style Japanese blades. Incorporating 100% diamond abrasives in both Stage 1 and 2, the Model 316 hones and polishes each side of the knife blade separately at 15 degrees. This feature allows the user flexibility, guaranteeing the sharpest possible edge on all contemporary double-bevel Asian-style blades as well as traditional Japanese single bevel knives. High precision elastomeric angle guides eliminate guesswork. UL and ETL certified. Assembled in the U.S.A.
“Great, holy cow!”

Cook's Illustrated recommends the Chef's Choice Model 316 sharpener saying the result of using this sharpener is comparable to a blade with a factory-sharpened edge and it will remove nicks in a blade.

I've sharpened 4 knives so far: one chef's, one garden knife & 2 paring knives. The paring knives were a little difficult due to their short blades. Longer blades are easier to guide through the sharpener. All blades were very sharp when I finished with them.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
