Don’t you hate sitting down for a nice steak dinner and going to cut a piece of that sirloin and realizing your knife is dull? Whether it’s in the workshop or the kitchen, dull blades can frustrate anyone. Keeping your knives sharp can be quick and easy with the right knife sharpener. If you find manual or electric knife sharpeners preferable, there’s one out there for everyone. We’ve laid out three can’t-miss options tailored towards the advanced craftsman, the novice chef and everyone in between.
Best Premium Knife Sharpener
Whether it’s a serrated knife or a straight one, the Chef’s Choice 130 Professional Electric Knife Sharpening Station can sharpen and polish it. It works specifically for 20-degree knives and has three stations: one with 100% diamonds, one with hardened sharpening steel, and one with flexible stropping disks to give you an ideal blade each time. There is an optimum edge that is customized for any cutting task you need. The stabilizing rubber feet hold the machine in place so there’s no slippage while it is in use. From kitchen to pocket knives, the Chef’s Choice 130 will sharpen it right up.
Best Straight Knife Sharpener
With its 120-Volt motor, the Presto 08800 EverSharp Electric Knife Sharpener can handle almost any non-serrated sharpening job that needs to be done. The precision blade guides help each blade receive a razor-sharp feel. Its two stage approach, with precision grinding followed by a honing polish, allows each blade to come out looking new. The electric stations have Sapphirite™ sharpening wheels that allow for a seamless process. It comes with a one-year warranty that allows you to get good use out of the sharpener.
Best Value for a Manual Knife Sharpener
The feeling of sharpening a knife yourself is enhanced in a manual knife sharpener. For a cost-effective option, the Bavarian Edge™ Knife Sharpener by BulbHead fits the bill. The Bavarian Edge™ sharpener can get any knife sharp, as opposed to only certain knives that work with electric sharpeners. With the two spring-action arms, it allows you to contour the blade’s shape as you work it through the sharpening process. With that feature, you can sharpen up one side if needed or the entire blade. This is the perfect update on a sharpening stone or block that were popular in the past.
