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."

This food slicer slices more than meat. Hard cheese. hart holiday bread etc. The blade is professional, the protector around blade is easily bent.
Worth the money

I like all the expensive cold cuts like Soppressata, genoa, prosciutto to name a few that are very pricey when prepackaged. I can find those [...] in bulk at a fraction of the cost. I have also been able to slice frozen meat so I do not have to take out and defrost the whole thing (this take a little more work getting use to but woth the effort) It is working great for me. This is definitively the closest machine to a professional one, for home use. Cleaning is really not that difficult, the blade does not need to come off every time as long as you sanitize it. First I wipe all food or juice from it by rotating the blade by hand then I go over again with a solution of 50/50 peroxyde and water. I use that solution for all the elements that have been in contact with food.

I was happy to receive the slicer, used it once and stored it in the garage. When i went to use it again I noticed some rust on the back side of the blade so now I have stored it without the blade.
