Freethinking Влади́мир: My Chef'sChoice CC120, has arrived. So now I have the Chef'sChoice CC120, which is basically the same as your winner. It takes a lot of metal off for medium sharpness. It's perfect for the housewife / househusband without manual sharpening skills. To claim the resharpened blade won, is a nonsensical statement. It depends - for starters - on how the knife comes from the factory. It's brand-dependent! The Wüsthof's I have come dangerously sharp, but the Zwilling & Henkels come out poorly sharpness-wise. So winning from a Zwilling or possibly a Victorynox like you showed, doesn't mean much.

S S: I bought a lesser model sharpener from costco, it was a piece of junk. I took it back and decided not to fool around so I got the Chef’sChoice 15 Trizor XV EdgeSelect Professional Electric Knife Sharpener" as suggested, and am very pleased. I took 2 of my older knives that were 20 degrees and recut it to 15 and it works good. Spend the $$$ be happy with this. The Stropping wheel is great for maintaining the edge every dozen uses. I also use a steel to keep the edge nice after every use.

Freethinking Влади́мир: Nothing wrong with a 20 degrees angle. This 15 degrees is a fab which won over the west for no reason whatsoever. After 25 years of manually sharpening with wet stones, I gave up on sharpening it to the point where you can shave yourself. After one time use that edge you worked on so hard is gone already. It's more relevant whether sharpening can occur without heating the edge! Heat removes the hardness of the metal. It's the #1 enemy.

By extension, a re-sharpened knife which is sharper than factory-sharp doesn't mean anything. Longevity is more relevant. And invest in a good and long honing-steel. That's the secret to everyday ultra sharp use.

D.E.B. B: Choose better meat, and you don't need a knife, you'll be able to cut it with a spoon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ilmd9qssKE

gilbert henri: Now what happens if I'm left handed? I avoid sharpening or have someone else do it for me? Preferably a right handed person?

poketman 2: Nothing can beat a professional human sharpenner.

Matthew Bernard: When do you plan to update this list? There are some really great new sharpeners on the market that you should include. Couple different brands including worksharpculinary.com.

Maklarus Trinity: The best Knife Sharpener is your hand and skill you have to do it .

MintyMilk: Typical paid review/adver

Robert: Where is your source for the revolution from 20 to 15 degrees knife edges amongst major European knife manufacturers ?
You mention it from 00:46 into the video.

zippplok: So chefs choice paid for this ad

Click: I know my comment is likely too late to be read but I will say it in case. Thank you for this video. I invested in a Chefs Choice 315W model and I am very happy with my purchase. I was able to turn the knives I loved (all had 20° blades) into knives I loved more with 15° blades. They are shaper and much easier (and apparently safer) to use now.
For anyone who is wondering I have a Paderno 6 piece knife block.

JohnSmith FakeName: I use a lansky sharpener and strop. I have no complaints.

Arvind Sai: What is the wattage of the 315 model for Asian knives. We need to buy a step down transformer to use this device in India. The price of the transformer varies with the wattage. It would be wonderful if anyone could help out with these specifications. Surprisingly I was not able to find the power specs on the official website.

Geno: if it's "made in China" does it make it an Asian knife?

Martin Godinez: That's way too much money.

BBBYpsi: Wustof is 14 degree edge & a much better knife then the Victorinox knife. Using any of these sharpeners is crap. This segment was paid for by Victorinox & chef's choice.

I Can Do That: How does your electric winner compare to a sharpening stone?

iceberg Xu: Do you test other chef knife? we are a professional high end chef knife factory , we have some models, can you test it for us pls.i can send you the sample

Hector Elizondo Jr.: Great reviews. Thanks for your work
