Chef's Choice has now introduced a knife sharpener for home use. The Chef’s Choice 220 Hybrid knife sharpener combines an electric sharpener with a manual one, bringing you the best of both worlds. With this little gem, your knives will be sharpened in a jiffy, and all at a very reasonable price. For professional use, we recommend the Chef's Choice 120 or 2000 model, since they are more equipped for intensive use.
This electric sharpener creates a new cutting edge (the sharp edge of a blade) in two stages in a short space of time: the electric stage sharpens while the manual stage hones, creating a razor-sharp edge that is strong and extremely durable. As its name suggests, 'Hybrid' refers to these two stages: first the electric stage and then the manual stage. The advantage of this advanced technology is that you can sharpen your knives in a jiffy at a very reasonable price.
The 220 Hybrid knife sharpener is also the ideal tool to maintain your knives. By regularly honing your blades using stage 2, the manual stage, your knives are guaranteed to be razor sharp at all times.
The 220 Hybrid features diamond abrasive sharpening wheels, ideal for sharpening the hardest blades quickly and easily.
This knife sharpener sharpens blades at an angle of 20 degrees, which is the ideal angle for traditionally sharpened knives. Knives from Asia are generally sharpened at an angle of 15 degrees. These knives can also be sharpened with the 220 Hybrid sharpener, although the original angle will be lost after a time.
Serrated knives can be sharpened using stage 2.
