The Chef's Choice® 1520 knife sharpener gives you the versatility to restore and sharpen Asian, European and American style knives. It's engineered to provide astonishingly sharp edges using highly precise knife guides that automatically position the blade, making the Chef's Choice 1520 an easy-to-use sharpening system.

  • “Great product, highly recommend.”

    – Yee Leng Lor, WI

The Chef's Choice® 1520 features 100% diamond abrasives for cool cutting that protects your blades from heat damage, and patented flexible stropping/polishing discs that create a “gothic arch” edge structure recognized for both sharpness and durability. It will quickly and easily sharpen virtually all quality cutlery including American, European or Asian style household knives, fine edge or serrated blades, Santuko and traditional Japanese style single bevel edges, including the thicker Deba style blades, sports knives and pocket knives. The Chef's Choice 1520 knife sharpener is UL and ETL certified. Assembled in the U.S.A.

The Chef's Choice 130 sharpener and the Chef's Choice 120 sharpener are also very popular.

Sharpness plus Strength: The Chef's Choice Knife Sharpener Difference

Three key features make the Chef's Choice sharpener the World's Best diamond electric knife sharpener.

Sharpener Bevel A

Sharpener Bevel B

Sharpener Bevel C

  1. Chef's Choice knife sharpeners feature diamond-impregnated cutting surfaces. Diamond cuts fast and smooth, is incredibly durable, and because it runs cool, it doesn't draw the temper from knife edges.

  2. All Chef's Choice knife sharpener models incorporate patented guide systems. Other machines may fail to sharpen properly and can even damage your knives. The Chef's Choice knife sharpener guides produce great results every time.

  3. Most important of all is the multi-stage bevel. Conventional hollow grinding, seen in figure A, creates a weak edge that flexes (figure B) and is subject to cracking and breaking. Chef's Choice knife sharpeners create super-honed edges that are much stronger than the hollow grind because the edge has far greater support. With the Chef's Choice knife sharpener, your fine cutlery is sharpened for peak performance, and at the same time it's protected against needless damage.

    I use the 20 degree & follow with the 15 degree on all knives. I use a steel to keep the edge s straight. Cuts ripe tomatoes with ease!

  • Very nice.
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Thorough and clear instructions. The 1520 works as described. I sharpened a dozen knives with poorly maintained edges in about a half hour. It worked well on my one-sided Japanese, two-sided Japanese and American cutlery.
