✅ TOP 5: Best Knife Sharpener 2020

11November 2021

Dull knives cut poorly, causing you to apply
extra force in the process, which increases the chance of injury. Additionally, dull knives tear up your food,
rather than slicing it beautifully. Sharp knives have a longer lifespan, too,
which is especially important for an expensive set of knives. The best knife sharpeners are easy to use
and give your knives that desirable sharp edge. Because knife sharpeners exist in a variety
of configurations, finding just the right type of knife sharpener for your needs requires
a bit of sharp study. Before we get started with our video detailing
the best knife sharpeners on the market, we have included links in the description for
each product mentioned, so make sure you check those out to see which one is in your budget
range. Starting off with the best overall knife sharpener
we have the Chef's Choice Trizor XV. The Chef's Choice Trizor XV represents our
pick as the best overall knife sharpener for a variety of reasons, but ease of use tops
the list. Most electric knife sharpeners offer easy-to-use
features, but the Trizor XV truly simplifies things with its three sharpening guides, starting
with coarse before moving to fine and polishing.

In its review, The Sweethome appreciated the
strong motor in the Trizor XV, which allows it to run smoothly during sharpening with
no catches on the blade. As Mal Knives shows in a review, the Chef's
Choice sharpener creates a triple bevel on the blade, which allows it to work with both
Asian and European/American knives. The bevels are at roughly 25 degrees, 20 degrees,
and 15 degrees.

This triple bevel design increases the length
of time required between sharpenings. However, one Amazon customer reviewer disliked
the sharpening results on Asian knives with this machine. The Chef's Choice carries a slightly above
average price point versus other electric knife sharpeners, but one Amazon customer
reviewer says the Trizor XV represents a great value and great investment for those with
many knives. Overall, we think it's the best knife sharpener
for most people with its multiple settings, clear instructions, and decent price. Next up we have the best affordable knife
sharpener which goes to the Chef's Choice ProntoPro 4643. The Chef's Choice ProntoPro 4643 is one of
our favorite knife sharpeners on the market, as it provides outstanding results at a low
price point. This manual pull-through knife sharpener offers
a lot of the same features as our top pick, the electric Chef's Choice Trizor XV, but
does so at a far lower price point. The design of the ProntoPro 4643 is a little
different from most manual knife sharpeners because it has a curved handle with a soft

As The Blade Guru shows in its review, you
can hold this handle firmly to achieve the best results. Additionally, the ProntoPro 4643 is only about
nine inches in length, meaning it'll fit easily in a drawer, which is a handy feature that
The Sweethome liked. You can control the angle of the knife blade
at either 15 degrees or 20 degrees, making it work well for both American/European and
Asian knives. In fact, the manual sharpener uses different
guide slots for each type of knife, as well as a third guide slot for serrated knives. However, one Amazon reviewer was disappointed
in the performance of the ProntoPro 4643 on expensive knives. Even though the Chef's Choice ProntoPro 4643
carries a lower price point than most electric knife sharpeners, it does cost a bit more
than other manual sharpeners. But as one Amazon reviewer says, the ProntoPro
4643 provides a great value because of its high-performance level. Up next we have the best stainless steel knife
sharpener which goes to the Brod & Taylor Professional Knife Sharpener. As discussed in The Sweethome's review of
the Professional Knife Sharpener from Brod & Taylor, some pull-through knife sharpeners
that make use of a V-notch sharpening system tend to remove too much metal from the knife.

However, The Brod & Taylor machine's design
overcomes this problem by precisely guiding the knife blade to create a perfect angle. This sharpener features a tungsten carbide
sharpening system. With V-notch systems, some people may experience
difficulty applying just the right amount of pressure to ensure an even sharpening on
the blade. The Brod & Taylor design includes a spring-loaded
sharpening configuration that overcomes this problem for most people, according to the
Kitchen Boy review. One Amazon customer reviewer experienced this
problem. However, once you have the hang of this machine,
it works great. The stainless steel construction of the Brod
& Taylor Professional Knife Sharpener looks great, meaning you'll enjoy keeping this knife
sharpener in full view at all times on your kitchen counter. It works with both American/European knives
and Asian knives, because you can adjust the angle at which the Brod & Taylor sharpener
works. Even with a high price tag for a pull through
knife sharpener, the Brod & Taylor sharpener represents a good value, according to one
Amazon customer's review, because it provides a new life for old knives, allowing them to
last longer.

Next we have the best knife sharpening kit
which goes to the Edge Pro Apex 4. The Edge Pro Apex 4 is a thorough knife sharpening
kit, giving you the ability to fine-tune your knives. The kit uses a guide system along with different
sharpening stones to help you draw the blade at the right angle. It does require some know-how and practice
to achieve the desired results. Additionally, this completely portable kit
fits inside a carrying case, allowing for easy transportation for camping or hunting.

The kit can handle blade sizes ranging from
small knives to machetes, as an Amazon customer reviewer explains, and all of them will be
incredibly sharp. However, another Amazon reviewer said the
system didn't work well with extremely thin bladed knives, such as a fillet knife. With this toolkit, setting an exact sharpening
angle at which to guide the blade works great, according to Let's Talk Survival's review. The kit ships with five water stones, ranging
from 120 to 1,000 grit, allowing for coarse to fine sharpening. It also contains 2,000 and 3,000 grit polish
tapes for honing. The stones fit tightly into the kit's design,
ensuring no slippage as you use the kit's angle guide to draw the knife blade across
the stones. Make It Sharp's review says that using the
Edge Pro Apex 4 properly involves a learning curve, but the time invested pays off with
incredibly sharp blades. The kit ships with a DVD, providing detailed
instructions on how to use it. Once you have mastered this tool, its results
are impressive. This kit costs quite a bit more than most
knife sharpeners, but it gives your knives more longevity by removing less metal from
the blades during the sharpening process.

Next up we have the best stone sharpening
system which goes to the Smith's TRI-6 Arkansas TRI-HOME Sharpening System. If you're frustrated with the performance
of electric knife sharpeners – or if you're just a bit of a control freak like me – the
Smith's TRI-6 Arkansas TRI-HOME Sharpening System allows you to manually sharpen your
knives. The system ships with three high-quality sharpening
stones and the included bracket holds the stones in place so you can work efficiently
and safely.

The ToolGuyd says this system is easy to use
and offers a tempting price point. Despite having a simple design, the Knife
Sharpening Guru says the TRI-HOME system performs exceptionally well. The rotating triangle block on which the manufacturer
has mounted the three different sharpening stones makes it convenient to just twist a
knob and find the exact stone grit you wish to use. Some people may be a bit intimidated by using
a sharpening stone, rather than an electric sharpener. However, one Amazon reviewer says this system
is very easy to use, even for someone who is new to knife sharpening. However, another Amazon buyer questioned the
longevity of the TRI-HOME's frame, as a couple of the rubber feet and one of the stones came
loose from the frame after several uses. Next we have the best manual knife sharpener
which goes to the Work Sharp Culinary M3 Manual Kitchen Knife Sharpener. Work Sharp Culinary is known for its many
knife sharpeners, and one of the best ones is the M3 Manual sharpener. It's a modular manual sharpener with two rods. One is made of Diamond Sharpening Steel and
the other is a Ceramic Honing Rod.

The tapered shape of the diamond steel rod
lets you sharpen straight, curved, and serrated knives or blades. The 320 grit diamond rod won't eat up your
knives, either, because it just gently sharpens the edge. Meanwhile, the ceramic honing rod has both
a fine and coarse so you can hone your knives or just touch them up between sharpenings. Together, the two rods ensure that your knives
stay sharp longer and keep cutting for years to come.

Although using a manual knife sharpener might
sound intimidating, the ergonomic handle with its 17° sharpening/honing guides make it
easy to sharpen your knives at the right angle every time. Insider Picks' Guides Editor Malarie Gokey
uses the M3 to sharpen her knives and highly recommends it. Work Sharp also has a 90-day guarantee and
3-year warranty on this knife, so rest assured that it's worth the money. So that sums up our top knife sharpeners of
2019. We hope you enjoyed. If you did please leave a like on the video
