"Once that you know your knife is sharp and that it's not going to be this chore, it makes it so much more enjoyable when you have this joy of cutting through something that's so easy and effortless'
- Jacquleine Blanchard, Chef at New Orleans Coutelier
Why should you sharpen your knife?
Sharp knives need less brute force to cut than dull knives. Less brute force means less damage to the food, which you can easily see by looking closely at the cut. Delicate ingredients, like herbs, will look fresher for longer if you slice through them cleanly, whereas a dull knife will crush more of the cells surrounding the cut, which ultimately accelerates wilting and discoloration.
But more than this, a dull knife slows you down, while a sharp knife makes prep easier and more enjoyable

How It Works
Place base on the countertop/table's edge. Tighten clamp securely!
Screw in the vertical rod with butterfly nut. Tighten the butterfly nut securely. On the vertical rod, place the limit or angle memory positioning stopper on, then place the pivot on.
Place the knife in the middle of the clamp. The knife should only be about 1/4 inch into the clamp. Make sure the knife’s edge is parallel with the countertop/table. Tighten clamp securely. Do not over-tighten.
Screw on the stone holder rod (with the brass nut) on the stone holder. Secure brass nut securely.
Insert stone holder rod into the pivot hole.
Pull the spring blade stop, and insert the whetstone. The tension of the stone hold can be adjusted by loosening the hex screw at the bottle of the handle and moving it forward or backward. Re-tighten hex screw. Important! Make sure the whetstone lays flat/flush against the stone holder prior to sharpening.
* Use lowest grit if you’re putting a new edge on the knife.
* Use 320 grit or higher if you’re touching up an already sharpened edge.
* If you’re trying to match the knife’s current bevel angle, you should use the marker method instructed in the manual.
Using an angle finder app/inclinometer, place the device on the base/datum. Set to Zero. While the stone holder and whetstone is resting on the knife, place the device on top of the stone holder (aluminum). To get your desired angle, adjust the pivot up or down. After you have your desired angle, tighten the pivot thumb screw securely. Move the limit/angle memory stopper up against the pivot. Tighten securely. Do not over tighten.
When grinding/lapping, you want to use front to back motion with left to right or right to left. Use as much of the stone as possible. The motion looks like a diagonal motion. Always start from the edge of the knife that is closest to the handle then moving away from the handle. Use light downward pressure while lapping.

I had been looking at one of these for a while and was gifted one by my girlfriend. Amazing sharpener and I really enjoy it. Shaving sharp with no problem at all. I highly recommend it.
I got this as a birthday gift. After a few "practice" runs with some old knives I've got the hang of it and have been sharpening chef and slicing knives for my friends and family. The blade clamp design could be improved a bit, perhaps some low profile wingnut screws that can be tightened by hand instead of with a hex key. I cut out some heavy cardboard "wedges" I use as angle guides at 17, 22 and 25 degrees. No need for an extra tool to find the right angle. I really do like the way this unit works. Looks intimidating, but isn't.
It was ok
The course stone does not last, it bellows out and then does not give a flat starting point for the following stones. This then cause a lot of time on the next stone and so on. The course stone should be diamond to help the process and not over grind the knife on the initial setup.
The pivot on my sharpener broke after the first use. I tried to get a replacement from REINCART, who COMPLETELY SUCKS, and they basically bounced me around for over 2 months without sending a replacement and have now ghosted me. Don't buy this product, you WONT get support.
