This two-slot sharpener replaces the traditional sharpening/honing combination with one innovative, easy-to-use tool. Developed by de Buyer of France to be the most advanced manual sharpener available today, it offers three stages of sharpening. Diamond-coated cams precisely control blade angles for highly accurate results-and a longer-lasting edge. Provides three stages of sharpening, from daily honing to restoring old knives. Slot 1: coarse grit diamond-coated cams for resharpening dull knives. Slot 2: two-stage set of diamond cams, one for fine sharpening to a 15- to 20-degree angle, and a honing section for daily maintenance. Patent-pending diamond-coated solid-steel cams control blade angles for perfectly shaped and fine, slightly convex edge bevels every time. Angle control and swiping motion produces professional results and reduces human error. Replaces the traditional stone-and-steel sharpening/honing combination with more accurate, faster results. More accurate bevels means less "rounding" of the edge, and therefore less resharpening and longer blade life.
