The KE-198 is designed for recreational use and is the ultimate knife sharpening tool.
How the SHARPENER works:
There are two spring loaded Aluminium Oxide grinding wheels (coarse and fine), which apply a controlled pressure to the blade of the knife. Please note that this machine is a sealed unit and there are no replacement parts, however, under normal profile use, the sharpening wheels are guaranteed for life.
The grooves in each section hold the knife at a 15º angle giving you a perfect cutting edge especially for Japanese Knives.
The left groove in each section sharpens the right hand side of the knife and the right groove, the left side. The knives are sharpened in the coarse section (marked 1) and polished to a razor finish in the fine section (marked 2).
This sharpener makes the job of sharpening your knives a breeze! No longer will you have the hassles of honing and re-edging a knife. It will take all the frustration of blunt knifes out of your life. Be careful though, one the word gets out suddenly all your family and friends will want you to touch up their knives too!
