Manufacturer: Smith's 50005
Smith's has been in business since 1886 providing a full line of quality sharpening stones and accessories for knives and scissors. Their stated goal is to "… provide consumers with the best edge for whatever task they are performing, while also providing outrageously good customer service", and based on consumer feedback they are exceeding expectations. Get the sharpest edge you can on your favorite blade with a Smith's product and you will have the finest edge you can possibly get.
Smith's, the leader in innovative sharpening technology, is proud to offer an electric knife sharpener that incorporates both manual and mechanical sharpening elements. This unique combination provides a broad capability to easily sharpen dull blades and maintain razor sharp edges.
The sharpening wheels on your Edge Pro Compact Electric Knife Sharpener are made from bonded synthetics. The synthetics used are selected for their ability to guarantee longer wheel life, uniform cutting, and minimum heat build up, so that de-tempering of your blade does not occur. Our wheels are manufactured according to strict tolerances in order to ensure the same high quality on each and every wheel that we make.
The crossed ceramic rods put the final finished edge on your blade. Crossed ceramic rods create a fixed sharpening angle that lightly hones both sides of your blade at the same time; thus, putting a polished, razor-sharp cutting edge on your knife. Also, the crossed ceramic rods are excellent for giving already sharp knives a a quick touch-up before use. Just a few, quick pulls through the sharpening slot is all it takes. Smith's recommends always using the ceramic rods for final edge honing after you sharpen using the synthetic wheels. Again, just a few pulls through the sharpening slot is all it takes.
