The Kitchen IQ Knife Sharpener is easy to use and will sharpen the dullest knife to a honed perfection. “There is nothing more dangerous than a dull knife” I always say. Dull knives are a hazard because of the extra force you have to make when cutting. A sharp knife means less effort. Cutting, slicing and dicing will be easier and faster–and safer.
Although I was trained to sharpen my knives on a stone and put an edge on the blade with a rod, the Kitchen IQ sharpener is more exact and definitely quicker than sharpening knives by hand. There are two settings available on the Kitchen IQ knife–asian and european. If you don’t know if your knife is asian or european you can call the manufacturer. In general asian knives are sharpened at an angle of 17 degrees and european knives are sharpened at an angle of 20 degrees. This sharpener would also make a great gift
