|Product Type: Electric knife sharpener||Country of Manufacture: United States|
Always enthralled by knife sharpening, Friel included in his list the invention of a truly effective electric knife sharpener that would work on a wide variety of knives, particularly, fine quality gourmet knives. He rescued a 20-year-old set of Gerber knives from a closet. They were a present from his wife June, and to his great frustration, he had never been able to put a satisfactory edge on them.
With fierce determination and a personal deadline of three years to show himself adequate progress on the project, Friel set to work in a basement laboratory and then sought the assistance of other professionals. "They were the nucleus of the EdgeCraft team," recalls Friel. He created thirteen prototypes before he came up with one that satisfied him. Soon after its introduction, the Chef's Choice Diamond Hone Sharpener earned the acclaim of food experts and chefs worldwide, including Pierre Franey, Jacques Pépin and the late Craig Claiborne.
Friel compares the day he left DuPont to follow his second career to the day he walked away from Johns Hopkins University after earning a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering."Unlike the day I left Johns Hopkins, when I left DuPont I could proceed with the knowledge and confidence gained from some 40 years of hands-on experience," Friel recalls. "I saw a need and I had the confidence that I could deliver."

No more dull fillet knives. Works great. No hand sharpener has come close to the edge this thing gives.
Works as advertised
Food Fan from Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Does a good job on all my Japanese and German knives. Instructions are easy to follow, sharpener is easy to use. Expensive, but recovered its cost in one year compared against having my knives professionally sharpened every year.
Definitely recommend this product !
AGMNS from Nova Scotia Canada
Excellent product. Takes a little to get used to initially, however you'll be amazed at the quality edges you will get on your knives once you get the hang of it.
