The Chef's Choice® Model 15 Trizor XV by EdgeCraft is the world's first sharpener designed specially to create the exceedingly sharp and effective Trizor XV edge on all household cutlery, including Asian style knives, straight edge and serrated blades. The Chef's Choice Trizor XV edge gives you the superior durability of the triple bevel edge, while forming each of the major edge facets at 15 degrees (30 degrees total) for a sharpness that matches the best Asian knives. Asian artisans devoted lifetimes to develop the skills required to hand sharpen edges of this quality. Now with the Trizor XV Sharpener, you can sharpen, hone and strop to the same perfection in a matter of seconds. Virtually all European and American style household knives are factory sharpened with edge facets at 20 degrees. Most of the Asian knives, however, are sharpened at 15 degrees on each side of the edge and this has contributed to their reputation for edge sharpness.
Understanding the Trizor XV Edge
The original Trizor edge, an innovation from Chef's Choice, has long been acknowledged for its superior sharpness and durability. Its uniqueness is the result of the triple bevel design of each of the two edge facets that meet to form the edge. The Trizor design uses multiple diamond abrasives of successively finer grits to shape the facets into a modified gothic arch to create a superior edge. In the original Trizor edge the major edge angles are formed at 20 degrees. The new Trizor XV edge is likewise made by a three step sharpening, honing and stropping process, but the major edge angle is set at 15 degrees for added sharpness and effortless cutting.
In addition to maintaining edges that came from the factory with 15 degree side angles, the Chef's Choice Trizor XV knife sharpener is also the ideal tool for converting traditional 20 degree factory edges of European and American household knives into the high performance Trizor® 15 degree edge.
“The Chef's Choice knife sharpener does the best job of putting an edge on a knife that I have found in 20 years of looking. It even puts a keen edge on the inexpensive paring knives. Based on the quality of this purchase, I’ll be ordering from Pleasant Hill Grain again.”
– Robert P., MD
The 3-stage process and efficient flexible stropping disks sharpen the edge with minimal metal removal, extending the life of fine knives. It features flexible spring guides that provide accurate control of the sharpening angle for the thickest or thinnest knife blades, ensuring ultra-sharp edges quickly and easily. Three year limited warranty. Engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.
Cook's Illustrated Recommendation
Cook's Illustrated highly recommends the Chef's Choice Trizor XV knife sharpener, saying it "purrs" with perfection. They are very pleased with how consistantly this sharpener produces sharper blades from edge to tip than even brand-new cutlery boasts. They found that severely damaged blades looked and cut like new after a few minutes of sharpening with the Trizor XV.
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.
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.
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.
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.
“Works great. Wish I had invested in this a long ago and saved myself a lot of frustration using dull knives.”
