Clearance: Chef's Choice 316 Asian Knife Sharpener
This is an R1 clearance item. Please check the tables below to see how we rate our clearance items.
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!”

Expanded Ratings Descriptions
|R1||Very close scrutiny is required to tell that the item isn’t brand new. Working surfaces may show slight wear; for example, the bottom-inside of a Bosch mixer bowl may show swirl marks because Bosch mixer whips are designed to “float” against bottom of bowl. Non-working surfaces (cabinet, control panel) look essentially new. Carton may not be perfect.|
|R2||Typically has a small scuff or mark on a non-working surface like a mixer cabinet or the top of a pressure cooker lid.|
|FR||Mostly returned items which have been brought fully up to new-equipment performance specs at the factory.|
|D||Demonstration items have been operated briefly at Pleasant Hill Grain.|
|DIS||These items have never been used but we no longer sell them at full price in our store because it was discontinued by us or by the manufacturer.|
|U||Has had light use.|
|SDB||Has moderate damage or blemish on a non-working surface, such as a scratch or dent in the housing, or paint blemish.|
|NOS||A brand new item that isn't the newest model.|

By Lisa M. in MI on 3/17/2016 - Verified BuyerI'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.5 out of 5 people found this review helpful. Did you?
