Best sharpener ever

I’ve had at least a dozen knife sharpeners over the years. Electric ones, various gadget ones, and several old school wet stones. I got the MinoSharp Water Knife Sharpener after reading several good reviews of it on Global Chef’s Knife pages.

I tried it out last night on a fairly old Global Chef’s Knife and was amazed. In under a minute it’d put a near razor edge on the knife.

Global knives are traditional Japanese blades meaning they don’t have a symmetrical bevel like European blades do. The MinoSharp claims it will work on European blades (like Henkels) but that it will take a bit longer. In any case – if you own Japanese blades this sharpener is amazing, cheap, easy and fast.
