A wonderful sharpener. Not just a honer, but a tool you could use to actually redo the cutting edges of your knives if you really tried due to the diamond abrasive. Be careful if you're a beginner. Start with very oblique/shallow angles so you don't destroy your knife edges. Then be careful getting ...

My wife and I have a collection of high-quality stainless steal knives that we have had for decades. Periodically, she attempts to sharpen them using a sharpening stone. The results have always been mediocre and short-lived. When my favorite bread knife failed to cut bread even after sharpening with the stone, I began looking for a better method.
The Wusthof Industrial Diamond-Steel Knife Sharpener was the answer to my quest. I found it on Sierra Trading Post's website at a greatly reduced price, below what it would have cost to replace any one of our knives. It arrived promptly (a day before promised). The instructions, printed on the sharpener's sheath, were simple and graphic. I took my bread knife and and moved it along the sharpener as directed. This was done about 12-15 times, after which the edge of the knife felt like a razor blade. I cannot remember the last time this knife was able to slice as effortlessly as it does now. I then used the knife sharpener to sharpen the other knives in our collection with equally positive results.
Another excellent product sold and delivered by STP. I highly recommend this product for sharpening stainless steal kitchen knives.

I have every kind of knife sharpener--I got this because I got a Wusthof knife which was so wonderful and sharp. This is excellent for every kind of non-serrated blade, and even the serrated ones can be honed on the flat side. Only downside is that it takes up a lot of room, but the long blade is part of the sharpening motion, a short blade would end up making a sawing motion that would nick the knife.
