Chef’sChoice 15 Trizor XV EdgeSelect Electric Knife Sharpener is the latest innovation from the renowned manufacturer of quality knife sharpeners.
Chef’sChoice 15 Trizor Electric Knife Sharpener has ultra-sharp EdgeSelect technology and sound stability of a Trizor (triple bevel) edge which provides hair splitting sharpness quickly.
The 3-stage sharpening system with efficient flexible stropping disks sharpens the knife blade with slight metal removal. This feature helps to extend the life of expensive knives.
There are inbuilt Diamond abrasives in the first stage produce really fine micro-grooves & creates the first major bevel of the edge. When it comes to the 2-stage of Chef’sChoice 15 Trizor Electric Knife Sharpener, it has finer Diamond abrasives which shape the smaller bevel.
Third stage uses the flexible abrasive stropping disks which are purposed to give a sharp & even edge.
As I have said earlier in my reviews, always start your system test with cheap knives so that you can understand how exactly system works. Chef’sChoice 15 Trizor Electric Knife Sharpener creates a 15° edge angle per side on all types of knives (Asian, European and American style knives included).
This will help to create 2 upper bezels (one at 17.5° & other is 20°) at about the cutting edge. These add power to the narrow angled cutting edge in order to stay sharp for a longer period of usage.
The best feature that makes Chef’sChoice 15 Trizor Electric Knife Sharpener really outstanding is its stropping disk system. Its third stage has flexible abrasive stropping disks that creates final bevel while polishing the micro-ruts formed in initial (first & second) stage. Flexible stropping disks minutely sharpen serrated or straight knives.
Note: For newbies, it is essential to read and follow the manual before start knife sharpening process. With European & American style knives, you need to pull at least 20 sets to develop the precise edge for polishing.
