THE SHUN APO119 KNIFE SHARPENER
In the world of professional kitchen knives, sharpening is always a hot topic. Shun knives offers the APO119 electric knife sharpener. It is durable and a time saver over manual, whetstone and steel sharpening methods.
It is very easy to miscalculate the correct sharpening angle when using a manual knife sharpener, however Shun has solved this problem. A sharpening channel on this appliance holds blades at the correct angle and the user draws knife blade through the groove multiple times at a consistent speed.
Initially the blade will pass through coarse grindstones on either side. Because the blade is guided through the channel, they are always properly aligned.
Next, a pair of fine stones finish blades for a smooth edge. The replaceable grindstone cartridge easily disengages for washing out any stray metal shavings.
The APO119 knife sharpener also has rubber feet, keeping it stationary while sharpening. It's compact shape and hidden compartment for the cord, make for easy storage when not in use. For more details on the APO119 Shun Knife sharpener, please click this link.
