Recommended for Global Knives and most other knife brands.

For some people, learning the skill of intermediate sharpening with a ceramic or diamond rod is difficult. It is essential that you maintain your knives on a regular basis and it will be easier to maintain them for the long term. Most Global stockists will carry one of these easiest to use devices - a water wheel sharpener called MinoSharp and MinoSharp Plus. These are hand held ceramic sharpeners and no experience or skill is required to use them simply fill the reservoir with water and run your knife backwards and forwards a few times. The revolutionary ceramic wheels ensure the blade is sharpened at the correct angle.

If ease of use is your primary consideration, this hand held sharpeners is the perfect sharpening tool for you. All models can only be used for knives that are equally sharpened on both sides. They cannot be used for serrated knives or knives sharpened on one side like the Bunmei knives. All of the MinoSharps use ceramic wheels for sharpening.

The MinoSharp 3 has 3 sharpening wheels, one rough, one medium and one superfine. However, on the MinoSharp 3, the rough wheel is much rougher than the rough wheels on the MinoSharp and MinoSharp Plus and is, therefore, much stronger. If you have ignored your knives for years and they cut more like a butter knife than a kitchen knife, we strongly recommend this sharpener. This sharpener also has the added benefit of a superfine sharpening wheel which allows you to polish your edges as a final step and make them even sharper.
