Personal Opinion

I truly believe that knives and scissors are the greatest tools we have ever created. Not a day goes by without cutting and slicing, just think about it! Read CEO article

Vladimir Frolov
The constant need to cut has led me to try to find a better way to sharpen the kitchen tools we use every day. What if there is something better than a simple electric knife sharpener? How can you make sure that no one steals from you and destroys your knives and scissors with an electric knife sharpener? I want to make sure that every Google search for "knife sharpener near me" or "knife sharpener near me" shows you the best, 5-star results.

Advantages, disadvantages and in between.
A non-commercial electric sharpener can only do so much, but it won't be able to provide a well-sharpened edge from heel to tip that will last for a long time. It's undoubtedly a quick and easy option, but you'll notice that your everyday cutting experience quickly deteriorates, and by now you're carrying your knives back to the sharpener and paying to have your knives and tools re-sharpened. The reason for this is the quality of the sharpening. Electric sharpeners leave deep scratches on the knife edge, which affects the long-term sharpening performance.
An electric grinder is not always the option, especially when we talk about high-end knives. But let me be real – whetstones also have pros and cons: for instance, an average set of six knives and a pair of scissors would take one to two hours to get sharpened.

Hear me out, one to two hours if the set is in good shape. If the cutting edge is chipped, depending on the size of the chip, it takes a long time to remove the damn thing. Even having a 250 grit stone won't help that much. In this case you may consider buying an electric wheel grinder in the future to make your life easier.. continue reading
It remains a mystery why we live in a world where companies produce an incredible number of knives of all shapes and sizes. A world where we would rather buy a new set of knives and scissors than sharpen the ones we already have. It's unsustainable.
It's okay if your knives and tools aren't perfect, we're here to make them perfect.

Rust & Scratches

Rust is one of the most serious problems. If your set rusts, it will be dangerous to use! Depending on the steel of course, I've noticed that knives from Europe like Zwilling Henckels or Wusthoff and other brands rust more than knives from Aisa like Mac, Shun or Nagomi for example, nothing but personal observation..

Knife bevels

Each type of knife is different in its purpose. Boning knives are good for separating meat from the bone, but terrible for slicing vegetables. Nakiri knives, on the other hand, are great for slicing soft vegetables like tomatoes, but if you try to cut anything hard, they will quickly become dull.
So why are there so many types of knives? What uses does each one have? What bevel should each knife have to maximize its capabilities?.
