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."

Does a decent job!

A friend and I split this. Between the 2 of us we have 9 kiddos, and school sandwiches were getting expensive! Does a good job so far. We've done 10 lbs of American cheese, a whole turkey breast, a ham, pepperoni, and bread. The only thing it had trouble with was the skin of the ham--cutting through the front was fine, but on the backside it would just kick the skin out and not slice through. It's much less scary to use than I anticipated, so that's a good thing! It is a beast to clean, but that's kind of to be expected. All in all we happy with it. With a membership to a local restaurant supply store we are paying less than half for our weekly lunch meat and can buy better quality. So this will have paid for itself in no time.

I give the EdgeCraft food slicer a 5 star rating. The slicer performs better than I expected at such a low price. I have used the slicer several times cutting beef, pork and breast of turkey. The slicer is very easy to use and clean. I would recommend EdgeCraft slicer to anyone that might be interested in a slicer.

A very good slicer that met or exceeded our expectations. Shipping was extremely quick and the price was the best price I could find on the Internet. I have purchased several items for wayfair and have yet to be disappointed.

This is a pretty nice little slicer. As soon as I got it I cleaned it up, which was super easy, and went to slicing meat. I sliced half a ham and 2 pounds of lunch meat in no time at all. I have not tried to slice cheese with it but I don't foresee any problem with it at all. It was definitely worth the money. I am truly glad I purchased this slicer.
