Chef's Choice Trizor XV Sharpener EdgeSelect #15:
This is basically the same as the model 120 3-stage (EdgeCraft calls it a "Trizor Edge") sharpener, but at 15-degrees instead of 20, making it more appropriate for someone with a collection of Japanese knives. It's also appropriate for converting European knives to a finer 15 degree angle (making them generally perform better, but they'll be a bit more fragile and the edge won't last quite as long between resharpenings). The first stage is a more coarse diamond stage for initial shaping or for resharpening of a very dull or damaged blade; the second stage is the standard edge-forming stage (at 15 degrees), and the final stage is a stropping/finishing stage for polishing and regular everyday touch-ups between resharpenings on the diamond stages. This is really an excellent sharpener with great versatility, since you can really tailor your use of the 3 individual stages to the type of knife you're sharpening (it's all detailed in the excellent manual).
Here's the manufacturer's description:
This new professional three-stage knife sharpener combines the strength and durability of the triple-bevel edge with the flawless, ultra-sharp 15 degree EdgeSelect® technology to sharpen both fine-edge and serrated knives. It is the ideal sharpener for converting traditional 20 degree factory edges of European and American household knives into the high performance Trizor® 15 degree edge. The XV™ flawlessly sharpens contemporary double bevel or single bevel traditional Asian-style knives as well. Featuring multi-stages, 100% diamond abrasives and patented flexible stropping discs, the XV™ creates the Trizor® EdgeSelect® edge which helps prolong the life of quality knives by applying a triple-bevel arch-shaped edge that resists dulling longer than conventionally sharpened hollow-ground or V-shaped edges. The three-stage process and efficient flexible stropping disks sharpen the edge with minimal metal removal, further helping to extend the life of fine knives. It also features flexible spring guides that provide accurate control of the sharpening angle, for the thickest or thinnest knife blades, insuring ultra-sharp edges quickly and easily. Three-year warranty. Assembled in the U.S.A.
Case is platinum-coloured (silver).
NOTE: be sure to read the directions for your sharpener BEFORE trying it out! It contains absolutely essential information to make sure you get a good edge and do not damage your knives.

Today’s fast paced commercial kitchens require an efficient, cost-effective and safety conscious system of cutlery maintenance. The NSF-certified Model 2100 is the perfect solution for quickly sharpening knives in a cost and time efficient manner. It's advanced technology allows anyone to quickly and easily put a razor sharp edge on all commercial cutlery and even sharpen serrated knives.
The three-stage Chef'sChoice® Commercial Diamond Hone® Knife Sharpener Model 2100 is fast and easy to use and creates a superior, longer-lasting sharp cutting edge that surpasses any other commercial sharpener. It will eliminate the need for costly and inconvenient knife sharpening services.
The unique edge geometry produced by theModel 2100's three-stage patented sharpening process (EdgeSelect®) can produce an edge with extraordinary "bite" for fibrous foods or a fine edge for precision cutting and slicing. Safe for quality knives, it never detempers the knife blade.
Easy To Use: The Chef'sChoice 2100 Commercial Sharpener is incredibly fast—at least two- to three-times faster than other commercial sharpeners. It sharpens the entire blade length of kitchen knives from the smallest paring knife to the largest chef's knife and cleaver in seconds. Built-in precision angle guides assure the correct sharpening angle and pressure and eliminate guesswork making it easier to use than any other sharpener.
In addition, the unit’s entire sharpening module, including abrasives and guides, can be removed quickly and easily for cleaning and sanitizing at the sink or in a commercial dishwasher: a crucial capability for today’s safety-conscious food service kitchen. The Model 2100 features a built-in “dresser” that keeps the polishing disks clean and glaze-free.
This rugged high-performance sharpener has been developed specifically for heavy-duty commercial kitchen use in restaurants, hotels, food service establishments, clubs and grocery chains. It is extremely cost-effective because it sharpens quickly, creates a longer-lasting edge (thus extending the time between resharpenings) and helps prolong the life of quality knives.
The Trizor-Plus™ Edge: Created using three sharpening stages, the Trizor-Plus™ Edge is an arch-shaped edge which resists folding and stays sharp up to three times longer than conventional hollow-ground or "V"-shaped edges. This special edge helps take the drudgery out of prep table and routine chopping chores because it combines the smooth cutting of a keen fine edge with the lateral cutting action of the microgroove facets.
The Trizor-Plus™ edge is a burr-free multi-bevel fine edge of hair-splitting sharpness with micro-groove flutes on the edge facets. The micro-grooves along the edge facets combined with the larger polished bevel provides an edge that cuts better and more evenly by distributing the cutting load, hence, the edge lasts longer.
The Trizor-Plus™ edge is created by the sharpening, honing and stropping stages comprising the patented 3-stage sharpening system. Conical rotating disks in Stages 1 and 2 feature 100-percent diamond abrasives to sharpen and hone the edge. Conical rotating flexible disks in Stage 3— the stropping stage—are made of a proprietary barber-strop-like flexible abrasive material.
How It Works:
Stage 1 is the first sharpening stage. Rotating cone-shaped disks plated with 100-percent diamond abrasives remove the old weak edge and create extremely fine "micro-grooves" on the facets on both sides of the edge, producing the first bevel of the arch-shaped edge at about a 40-degree total angle.
Stage 2: Even finer diamond abrasives on the conical disks in Stage 2 shape the second bevel of the arch-shaped edge; simultaneously creating even finer micro-grooves on the second bevel of the razor-sharp edge.
Stage 3: Is the honing stage where rotating cone-shaped flexible disks of ultra fine abrasives polish the edge creating the third bevel and a burr-free ultra sharp edge. These disks act much like a barber strop to finely hone the knife edge. The honing stage retains some of the microgrooves created in the first and second stages giving the edge remarkable "bite.”
In all three stages, flexible springs hold the knife securely in place against precision guides to ensure perfect control of the sharpening angle for each and every stroke. The diamond abrasive sharpening disks and the proprietary stropping stage will never detemper quality knives and removes only microscopic amounts of metal to resharpen the edge.
EdgeSelect®: The advantage of EdgeSelect® is that the user can customize the edge to give optimal performance depending on the type of foods being cut. For instance, when cutting fibrous foods such as pumpkin, squash or fibrous meats, the user may choose to sharpen the knife in Stage 1 followed by Stage 3 (only two of the three sharpening stages) so the edge has more ‘bite’ and can slice cleanly through tough fibers.
Or, the user may sharpen the knife in all three stages, stropping the edge to an ultra-fine flawlessly polished edge in Stage 3, so it glides through more delicate tasks such as filleting fish or slicing smoked salmon, where presentation is highly important. It produces predictably sharpened edges that reduce food waste, improve portion control and help create an attractive presentation.
Designed to meet stringent U.S. and European electrical standards and safety requirements, the Model 2100 has been engineered and field-tested for long life and high performance in the rugged environment of commercial kitchens. Enclosed in a sturdy metal housing, the quiet, continuous duty motor powers a stainless steel shaft and sintered stainless bearings. Sturdy high-tack rubber feet hold the sharpener securely to the work surface. The unit is compact (about 12 3/16-inches long by 5-inches high and 5-inches deep) to fit into even the most crowded kitchen.

FAQ: 1. The price of the ScissorPro® is high, why should I pay this? The ScissorPro is a precision machine that is designed to deliver unsurpassed sharpening satisfaction and is manufactured to last a long, long time. The price of a new pair of scissors can range from $10-$50, so it does not make sense to throw out dull scissors and buy a new pair. Professional sharpening services, if you can find one, and find one that will do a good job, will generally charge from $5-$15 per scissors. Less expensive sharpeners do not work, can harm scissors or leave them dull. This is the first sharpener ever recommended by professionals. It incorporates 100% diamond abrasives in a two-stage sharpening process, similar to that used in Chef'sChoice knife sharpeners. There is no scissors sharpener that will do as fine a job as the ScissorPro. 2. Is it safe for sharpening high quality scissors? Yes. You can feel safe sharpening your quality scissors with the ScissorPro. The unique double beveled edge created by the ScissorPro® will actually prolong the life of your quality scissors. 3. Will the ScissorPro cause excessive wear? No. The ScissorPro is designed so that it removes the minimal amount of metal, while producing incredibly sharp edges. Magne-Flex™ scissors guides hold the blade at a precise, predetermined sharpening angle and maintain the correct contact pressure between the blade edge and the Omni-Curve™ diamond disks. Your scissors can be re sharpened, as needed, without the fear of excessive wear. 4. Does the ScissorPro sharpen serrated blades? The ScissorPro is not designed to sharpen serrated blades. For scissors with one plain and one serrated edge, sharpen only the blade with the plain edge. (For example, kitchen shears.) 5. Does it sharpen curved manicure scissors? No. 6. How often should ScissorPro be used? The ScissorPro can be used as often as needed to maintain an incredibly sharp edge. In instances where the edge is damaged (for example, where the edge is nicked by accidentally cutting through a pin) it is critical that the edge be reconditioned immediately, before the nick damages the back of the other blade. 7. Are there any scissors which the ScissorPro will not sharpen? The ScissorPro is not recommended for pinking, scalloping or high-end barber/stylist shear or curved manicure scissors. 8. Who manufactures Chef'sChoice Model 500? The Model 500 is injection molded and assembled at the EdgeCraft Corporation, located in Avondale, Pennsylvania in the U.S.A. The company was founded in 1984 and currently manufactures many fine small kitchen appliances under the Chef'sChoice® brand.
