Review of Wusthof Precision Edge 4 Stage

The Wusthof Precision Edge 4 Stage Knife Sharpener sharpens standard, serrated, and Asian style knives with ease all in a compact and easy to use unit measuring 9 by 3 by 1-1/2-inches.

The Wusthof Precision Edge 4 Stage Knife Sharpener has revolutionized the manual pull through sharpener style with the ability to sharpen at different angles.

The EZ Grip handle helps provide a sure grip.

The standard slot sets carbide blades at 28 degrees or 14 degrees per side to setting blades at the proper angle for a consistent result.

Stage 2 of the standard side uses ceramic rods to hone blades to a razor-sharp finish.

Slide the cover over to sharpen Santoku or Nakiri knives. This slot is set at 20 degree or 10 degrees per side as Asian knives have different angle requirements.

The Wusthof Precision Edge 4 Stage Knife Sharpener has revolutionized the manual pull-through sharpener style with this feature.

Previous models would only have one preset angle that greatly limits the application of a knife sharpener.

The Wusthof Precision Edge 4 Stage Knife Sharpener has a V-shaped cutting head with two crossed carbide blades puts a quick edge on knives.

Place this easy to use sharpener on a flat work surface and hold the E-Z grip handle with one hand and the knife handle with the other.

Insert the knife blade fully into the slot at a 90-degree angle to the sharpener and pull down and back three or four times to sharpen.

After setting the knife’s edge with the carbide side, use the unit’s ceramic side to nicely finish the edge to razor sharpness.

The Wusthof makes the grade and then some as yet another well constructed, high-quality product bearing the Wusthof name.
