Sharpening knives at home is convenient and easy if we have a good sharpener. We put one of our dullest knives, to test this Chef's Choice Pronto Pro manual diamond hone® knife sharpener and were happy with the results.
This extremely fast manual sharpener can be used on European, American and Asian style knives such as straight edge, santouku, sports, serrated and pocket knives. This sharpener has a crisscross technology that allows a precise bevel angle control that creates ultra sharp 15-degree and 20-degree edges. The wheels hold shape, and do not load up, so it is durable and easy to clean. The edge to hold the sharpener is "soft touch" and allows us to have secure grip while sharpening.
To use this sharpener just slide the blade back and forth in a sawing-like motion by applying a downward force. Using this 100% diamond abrasive wheels in stages 1, 2, and 3 helps the knives to have a razor sharp edge.
Stage 1: Apply a 15-degree edge for fishing, light, hunting knives, and Asian style knives.
Stage 2: Apply a 20-degree edge for fishing heavier hunting knives, and European and western style knives.
Stage 3: Honing and polishing, sharpens serrated knives, and Asian style knives.
