|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."
The Trizor XV - Beyond Sharp
Bingo Cassanova from Benicia, CA – Verified Buyer
I have been using the Fury Knife Sharpening system, which is a manual process, I needed something that would sharpen, or at least, hone my serrated knives. I looked at every model offered, by as many different manufacturers as I could find. I read hundreds of reviews before finally choosing the Trizor XV EdgeSelect Electric Knife Sharpener by Chef's Choice ... I am glad I did and I'm very happy with the results (sharpness of knife edges, both straight and serrated). I do have two gripes. One, the Trizor XV is loud, but probably no louder than most electric knife sharpeners. After all, it is basically like running metal against a grinding wheel. Gripe #2 ... Okay, Chef's Choice ... Just how many knife sharpener models does there have to be? I would concede to three ... Best, Good, and Budget. Get the Trizor XV EdgeSelect Electric Knife Sharpener by Chef's Choice, you won't be disappointed.
