The Wusthof Chef's Choice PEtec Electric Knife Sharpener is designed to sharpen knives using Wusthof's patent pending PrecisionEdge technology (PEtec). This knife sharpener is ideal for keeping Wusthof cutlery already featuring PEtec angle blades such as those in Wusthof's Classic, Classic Ikon, and Grand Prix II collections in pristine shape. However, it can also be used with any type of cutlery to produce this superior blade angle. The sharpener has 3 stages--sharpening, honing and stropping/polishing. The first stage uses 100% diamond abrasives to make a new edge and prepare the blade for the next stage. The second stage uses finer grit diamond abrasives to refine the blade even more and prepare for stage 3. The 3rd stage polishes the edge of the blade to a perfect edge. For dull knives, all three stages should be used in order. Periodic re-sharpening only requires use of the 2nd and 3rd stages. The 3rd stage alone can be used for more frequent maintenance of fine edged knives or to keep serrated knives sharp. The first two stages should not be used on serrated knives because they will destroy the serrations. Wusthof item number 2933.
