This outstanding Nirey electric knife sharpener has been designed to sharpen Oriental knives made from the very hardest steel with ease. It goes without saying that it also makes an extremely fine job of sharpening European knives too.

The machine is very solidly built and is used in many professional kitchens around the world. Electric knife sharpeners are quick, accurate and simple to use. They will sharpen very blunt, damaged or neglected knives with ease. This means that anyone can apply an excellent edge to any knife including the very best oriental blades. Anyone who struggles to keep good knives sharp would benefit from an electric sharpener as would anyone who has invested in top quality knives but is unsure about sharpening them manually on a steel or a whetstone.

The Nirey KE198 sharpening machine mimics the action of a whetstone to great effect. It has two grinding wheels, a coarse one and a fine one. The knife blade is guided onto the flat outer face of the rotating sharpening wheel by two metal slots which hold the knife blade at the correct angle against the sharpening wheel. There are individual slots for sharpening the left and right hand sides of the knife blade on each of the two sharpening wheels. The wheels are spring loaded so that you maintain an even sharpening pressure throughout. The coarse wheel is capable of grinding nicks and chips out of a damaged knife edge and even reforming news points on knives where the tip has been broken off while the fine wheel will apply a superb cutting edge to your knife. Turn the machine on and gently lower your blunt knife into a sharpening slot until you hear it make contact with the sharpening wheel, very little downward pressure is required. Draw the knife slowly towards you allowing time for the sharpening machine to work on the knife. Make alternate slow passes through the left and right hand slots. Three or four passes on the coarse stone followed by the same on the fine stone should be enough to sharpen even the dullest knife to a superb edge. For the ultimate results we recommend that you strop your knife on a piece of leather or heavy cloth in the same way that a barber would strop a razor to remove any burs from the edge and reveal a super sharp blade.
