From The Manufacturer

Create an incredibly like-new sharp edge with this electric multi-stage knife sharpener. Safe for use with high-quality knives, the unit can restore a 15-degree edge for Asian-style knives and a 20-degree edge for European- and American-style knives. It can also sharpen fine-edge or serrated blades, sports knives, pocketknives, and Santuko and traditional Japanese-style single-bevel edges, including the thicker Deba-style blades, as well as double-bevel blades. Its three-stage system produces a perfect edge. Precise knife guides automatically position the knife for foolproof operation, while 100-percent diamond abrasives and patented flexible stropping and polishing discs sharpen, hone, and deliver a microscopically polished edge. Other highlights include a simple on/off switch, stabilizing feet, and durable construction. Assembled in the USA, the knife sharpener measures 12 by 6-1/5 by 6-2/5 inches and carries a three-year limited warranty.

Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

The Trizor XV brings the metal of the blade to an infinitesimally fine point rather than to the relatively coarse edge that our main pick produces. That means you can chop straight down through, say, onions and carrots rather than stroking through them as with a saw.
Well, it automatically converts any angle blade to an ultra-sharp 15 degree angle blade. It does this while maintaining a decent longevity of the blade by imposing a 3-step bevel, first to approximately 25 degrees, then 22 degrees and finally 15 degrees.
Three-stage sharpening and stropping disks for exceptionally sharp edges.
It’s versatile, working with many different types of knives, it uses only 100% diamond abrasives, and not only can it reliably put the sharp edge I expect on my knives, it can also repair and restore damaged blades.
The Trizor XV EdgeSelect (yes, it's a very silly name) has three stages of sharpening which gradually build up a smooth, even, incredibly sharp knife edge that glides right through a ripe tomato and will stay that way longer than blades sharpened by other methods.
This particular device is actually easy to use, as well as includes easy-to-follow directions. Merely slip the actual chef’s knife with the slot machines 3-5 occasions (for every) as well as you’re carried out.

What reviewers didn't like

But the Trizor XV is a bit bulky (about the size of a loaf of homemade bread) and heavy, so you’ll need to find space for it under your countertop.
It can also seriously damage a blade if not used properly, and the first stage in particular tends to “eat” a lot metal off the knife, diminishing the life of knives sharpened by this electric knife sharpener.
May not work well with ceramic knives.
More expensive than other electric sharpeners
An additional issue at first had been the quantity of period this required in order to hone the chef’s knife.
