KitchenIQ™, by Smith's a world leader in innovative sharpening products, is proud to introduce an electric knife sharpener featuring Interlocking Ceramic Wheels in combination with manual sharpening elements. This unique combination provides a broad capability to suit multiple blade types and edge conditions. With this one product, you can easily sharpen extremely dull blades, maintain razor sharp edges on both straight and serrated blades, and sharpen common household scissors/cooking shears.
Your Ceramic Edge Gourmet Knife and Scissor sharpener will sharpen knives of alloy, carbon or stainless steel. It is designed to sharpen double- beveled European / American and Asian style kitchen knives. IT WILL NOT SHARPEN CERAMIC OR SINGLE BEVELED KNIVES.
Traditional electric knife sharpeners work in a combination of numerous steps and only sharpen one side of the knife at a time. They can often scratch and damage the knife blade. The Ceramic Edge Gourmet delivers fast and precise sharpening of both sides of your knife blade at the same time in the interlocking ceramic wheels thus reducing the amount of time needed to sharpen your knife when compared to sharpening on side of the blade at a time. Also unlike other electric knife sharpeners these fine ceramic wheels will not mar or scratch the blade. If used properly, the interlocking ceramic wheels will not only sharpen the cutting edge to factory quality, but will also reduce the amount of metal removed from your blade and extend the life of your knife.
The Ceramic Edge Gourmet electric knife sharpener comes with extra fine interlocking alumina ceramic wheels which provide superior edge producing capabilities while removing minimal material from your knife edge. Compared to diamond coated wheels ceramics produce a smoother, more consistent cutting edge which leads to a sharper knife.
Sharpening Angles of the Ceramic Interlocking Wheels
The interlocking wheels were designed to be 17 1/2° on each side to allow this sharpener to be versatile enough to sharpen a wide variety of knives. You can use these interlocking wheels to sharpen and maintain both the double beveled Asian as well as the European/ American wider angled knives. KitchenIQ™ selected the 35° combined sharpening angle and the Precision Machined Edge configuration to provide great initial sharpness while providing good edge retention.
