A Cut Above the Rest

What if you could buy a sharpener that not only repaired the new breed of ultrathin chef’s knives but also honed the wider cutting edge of more traditional blades?

Chef'sChoice Pronto Manual Diamond Hone Asian Knife Sharpener

WINNER - BEST MANUAL SHARPENER - RECOMMENDED

DESIGN ★★★
ROUTINE SHARPENING ★★½

Reviewed in November 2018

Our previous favorite manual sharpener quickly and easily restores a razor-sharp edge to blades that have no serious damage. Its high guides ensured that the blade met the abrasive at a precise and secure angle so we could put even pressure along the entire edge. The handle was grippy and comfortable, “anchoring itself in your hand,” and the tool can easily be stored in a drawer.

How We Tested Manual Knife Sharpeners

So we rounded up nine models (including our previous favorites), five manual and four electric, from both Western and Asian manufacturers and priced from roughly $20 to $200. To evaluate them, we bought nine of our favorite Victorinox chef’s knives and assigned one to each sharpener; we then dulled the knives identically and sharpened them according to manufacturer instructions. To assess sharpness, we slashed sheets of copy paper and sliced delicate tomatoes, repeating the dulling, sharpening, and slicing process four more times with multiple testers.
