Description
SMI50146: Angle Adjust Adjustable Manual Knife Sharpener
KitchenIQ by Smith's
 
Manufacturer SKU: 50146

Adjusting the way you think about sharpening! Introducing the innovative manual adjustable knife sharpeners from KitchenIQ™. Designed in the USA by Smith's a leader in sharpening for over 127 years. KitchenIQ™ developed this sharpener to fill the need of sharpening a knife back to its original sharpening angle. Why sharpen a knife to its original angle? It's important to do so, to prolong the life of the knife by removing less metal, while creating an extremely sharp edge.

KitchenIQ™ introduces the Angle Adjust Manual Sharpener. This is the FIRST adjustable sharpener of its kind. The sharpener has unsurpassed technology that allows you to sharpen the knife to the original factory angle. It includes 3 slots for sharpening. The fine slot features ceramic rods for finishing the knife edge and every day light honing and maintenance of an already sharp knife. The coarse sharpening slot features diamond stones that are used to sharpen dull or damaged knives. The serrated slot is a fixed slot designed for sharpening most styles of serrated knives. To use the sharpener simply select the desired angles and pull the knife through the slots 10 + times. (the number of pulls depends on the sharpness or damage to the knife.)

Sharpening Instructions

Both the Coarse and Fine sharpening slots will move at the same time to the selected angle.

Step 1. Push down to turn knob to the appropriate sharpening angle. If original factory angle is unknown follow suggested angles on knob. 
Step 2. Insert knife into the appropriate sharpening slot at a 90 degree angle to the sharpener.
Step 3. Using moderate pressure pull the knife blade through the sharpening slot (approximately 6-10 pulls depending on the damage or sharpness of the knife).
Step 4. Repeat until sharp
Step 5. Always finish and polish the knife in the fine slot. Also use the fine slot for regular maintenance. Pull the knife through the slot using moderate pressure (approximately 6-10 pulls)
Step 6. Repeat until sharp.

Test the sharpness of the knife by cutting a piece of paper, or slicing a vegetable. If the knife does not cut through the item easily, repeat sharpening.

Knives made of harder steel may require additional pulls.

Sharpening Serrated Knives

Pull knife through serrated sharpening slot 2-3 times using light downward pressure. Repeat process until sharp.

Smith's Edgeware sharpener is very good!
I love this sharpener, it sharpens my Wustoff 14 degree knives. I only wish they would add the honing stone to the unit also in addition to the fine stone.
