Out of the box, your Shun knives feature the unique 16˚ angle of Asian cutlery, and require a sharpener that achieves this angle for proper maintenance. When sharpening with a steel, it can be all-too-easy to misjudge the angle and sharpen a blade incorrectly. With the Shun Electric Sharpener, proper alignment is managed by the sharpening channel that ensures safe and accurate, burr-less sharpening.
This electric sharpener uses a combination of fine and coarse grits to keep your blades at the sharpness you require. Just a few strokes through the channel are all it takes to restore the angle on your blades, as they become dull with use. Regular sharpening helps to maintain these edges. The Shun Electric Sharpener should not be used with serrated blades.
For cleanup, the Shun Electric Knife Sharpener features a removable grindstone cartridge for washing and drying, and easy replacement when the time comes. Rubber feet keep this sharpener stable and secure, preventing skidding and slipping during use. For easy storage, this sharpener includes hidden cord storage and a plastic cover to keep it protected.
Shun has been producing high quality cutlery and accessories for three generations in Seki City, Japan. The Shun Electric Sharpener carries a limited one-year warranty.
