The Wüsthof Universal Four Stage Hand Held Knife Sharpener is designed to keep all these knives sharp, including the Asian-style blades. The two slots of the standard mode sharpen and hone to 28˚, or 14˚ per side, while the Asian mode provides two slots to sharpen Santoku, Nakiri, and other Asian blades to a 20˚ angle, or 10˚ per side. The coarse stage uses two crossed, hard carbide steel blades, while the fine honing is achieved with fine ceramic rods. Blades with serrations or scalloped edges should only be sharpened with the ceramic fine stage. With a rubberized base and comfortable soft-grip handle, you’ll be on secure ground using this versatile sharpener. Keep your blades sharp as new with just a few strokes through the appropriate slots.
