The Chef's Choice 464 "Pronto" diamond hand knife sharpener: The Pronto 464 is the fastest two stage manual sharpener on the market today. In seconds, it puts a razor-sharp, stronger, more durable arch-shaped edge on both straight edge and serrated knives. The Pronto's Criss-Cross™ technology uses 100% diamond abrasive wheels that sharpen simultaneously “into” and “out of” the knife edge for a superior burr-free edge with lots of bite. The first stage provides fast profiling of even seriously dull knives. The second stage accomplishes fine sharpening. Compact, easy to use and quiet, the Model 464 can be conveniently stored in a drawer. It features a “Soft Touch” handle for an easy, secure grip.
Most manual sharpeners are painfully slow or remove too much material, seriously shortening the life of your expensive blades. Not the Chef'sChoice 464. Using high grade industrial diamond technology and innovative angled/offset grinding disks, the 464 combines speed with finesse to give you sharp, long-lasting, 20 degree edges that don't damage your knife or take all day to produce. Excellent for straight and serrated knives. For serrated knives, sharpen using only stage 2. Watch the video above for a quick tutorial.
Cook's Illustrated recommends the Chef's Choice Pronto sharpener as the best manual knife sharpener on the market. They say it sharpens quickly, and easily restores a blade to razor-sharp precision when it had no serious damage. The high glides kept the blade at just the right angle to the abrasive so an even pressure could be applied along the entire blade edge. They found the handle was comfortable and allowed for a sturdy grip.
“It's the first knife sharpener I've ever owned and it works great! It was on my doorstep two days after I ordered it.”– Sally T., IA
