Give those on your holiday gift list an item that they can use over and over again. EdgeCraft Corp.’s Chef'sChoice® Diamond Hone® AngleSelect™ Sharpener Model 1520 is the world's most versatile sharpener, engineered to put a razor sharp edge on all quality knives. This patented advanced technology electric sharpener can restore and recreate both, a 20 degree edge for European and American style knives and a 15 degree edge for Asian style knives.

The Chef'sChoice Model 1520 will quickly and easily sharpen virtually all quality cutlery including American, European or Asian style household knives; fine edge or serrated blades; Santuko and traditional Japanese style single bevel edges including the thicker Deba style blades; as well as sports knives and pocket knives.

"The demand for Asian style knives has increased over the past three years with Asian style knives accounting for as much as half of the cutlery sales at some leading retailers," says Chef'sChoice President Sam Weiner. "Many consumers own both 20 degree Euro/American knives and 15 degree Asian style knives for which they want to maintain the original edge geometry. The revolutionary and versatile Model 1520 allows them to put a better than factory, original edge geometry on virtually all cutlery with just one versatile sharpener."

Incorporating the highly precise angle controls of the patented three-stage AngleSelect system and the Diamond Hone technology that has made Chef'sChoice sharpeners world renowned and the choice of leading chefs worldwide, the Model 1520 sharpener is the perfect solution for restoring and recreating razor sharp edges on all types of quality cutlery. It creates the acclaimed Trizor® triple bevel edge recognized for astonishing sharpness and durability. This "gothic arch" edge structure is known to be stronger and longer lasting than hollow ground or conventional "V" type edges.

To sharpen Asian style knives at the traditional 15 degree angle, Stage One and Stage Three are used. To sharpen European and American style knives at the original factory edge of 20 degrees, Stages Two and Three are used. The initial stages sharpen and hone the edge using 100 percent diamond abrasives while Stage Three, which is similar to a barber's strop, polishes the edge with a patented flexible stropping/polishing disk for a super sharp microscopically flawless polished edge. Stage Three is also used to sharpen serrated knives.

The Chef'sChoice Model 1520 features an advanced, highly precise knife guiding system that automatically positions and stabilizes the knife as you sharpen, eliminating all guesswork. The advanced spring guide will allow the sharpening of virtually all knives, including thicker knives.
