    This is an excellent sharpener for most knives but is different from other Chefs Choice models. Unless you have PEtec knives, the sharpener put a completely new edge you can see because it extends up the side of the blade by about 1/16th or more. Not much but it is reshaping the blade. this is great for all European and American knives because the blades are thick enough. You may have to go through both sides of stage 1 up to 20 times but 10 times or so worked for most of mine. The resulting blade is a 14 degree class sharpness as opposed to the 20 degrees they start with. The only exception are Asian knives like Shun, Global or any of the expensive Asian knives. Their blades are already at 15 degrees and the problem with reshaping them is the blades are thin and very hard stainless steel. Euro and American quality knives are carbon steel which is not as hard so sharpens easier. It use to be stainless steel blades were inexpensive because they were cheap to make but very hard to sharpen. The newer Asian knives are made of multiple layers of expensive stainless steel composites which are definitely not cheap but are very sharp and hold an edge a long time. I called Wusthof and asked if they can be sharpened. They cautioned they may be too thin for the reshaping in stage one (and I think you don't really need to reshape them since they already have an optimal edge for their 15 degree edge). None of mine are dull enough to try but if I did I would skip stage one and start with stage two. You may not be able to raise the burr that the instructions call for because of the hardness of the blade but it should not hurt them and may sharpen them. No one knows. You can always buy Chefs Choice 325s for Asian blades. It has good reviews. If you don't have expensive Asian knives there is nothing to worry about. The new edge it will put on the carbon steel Wusthof and Henckels classic and grad prix knives is remarkable. Note that both offer less expensive models made of regular stainless steel, not the multi layered Japanese steel like V-10 and others. Don't know how it will work on plain old stainless steel like cheaper knives are made of but probably can't hurt.

    . used it on non-wusthof knives and takes some time on the first stage to get the new edge but worked awesome on both quality and non quality knives and made them razor sharp. love it! always great price from STP.

    I immediately went through all my dull knives, about a dozen, paring knives, cooks knives and even a large chinese cleaver. All were sharpened and honed to a razor sharp edge. Some I had to do 2 or 3 times through the first stage until I got the hang of detecting the burr, but overall, for the price, this machine is excellent.

    The Wusthof knife sharpener is wonderful, and the instructions for use are clear and concise. However, the sharpener instructions state that serrated knives can be sharpened, but the serrated points will be ground down. I sharpened all of my Wusthof and Henckel professional knives with very good results. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
