The different types of knife sharpeners

There are several types of sharpeners: manual models, electric models, sharpening stones, and sharpening steels.

Manual sharpeners: The size of a manual sharpener is usually compact. It fits easily into a kitchen drawer, backpack pocket, etc. Its biggest advantage is that you can take it with you and use it in any situation, even in the middle of nowhere. However, this type of sharpener is not always suitable for all knife blades.

Electric sharpeners: If you want to save time and avoid breaking your head, the electric sharpener is much more practical and faster. Your knife will be sharpened in record time, but you must always plug it into an electrical outlet during the sharpening process. If it has two slots, one for sharpening and one for tapering, the result will be top. It is ideal for effortless sharpening.

Sharpening stone: This type of sharpener is for experienced users. You can choose its grain, and more precisely the abrasiveness to adapt it to the knife to be sharpened. The end result is generally impeccable and more durable (up to several months). It also reduces the knife wear, provided you know how to handle it properly.

Sharpening steel: it consists of a solid steel drill bit that is covered with sharpening materials. It is the preferred sharpener for professionals because of its ease of use, quick results, and perfect sharpening. It can be used on almost all types of knives except for those with a broken blade.

Sharpening material and the blade to be sharpened

Sharpeners can use 4 types of material to sharpen, namely :

  • steel: ideal for straightening your knife blade.
  • the diamond: resistant and robust, it is generally present on sharpening steels.
  • the ceramic: more suitable for finishing.
  • natural stone (for sharpening stones): just choose the grain that is more or less abrasive.

It is important to know that a sharpener cannot sharpen all types of knives. Always check if the model is suitable for your knife. There are sharpeners specially designed for flat-bladed knives and others for serrated knives, such as meat knives, bread knives, etc.
