Global Sharpener is simple to use and works well.
This knife sharpener's clever design lets inexperienced people sharpen their knives very well. Other knife sharpeners are excellent but require skill and practice to use correctly, but this one is easy to use. This sharpener is designed for the extremely hard edges of a Global knife. Global knives are edge hardened to around 60HRc which is very hard and makes using a normal steel straightener time consuming. Global knives really need sharpening stones to maintain their edges.
I am very good at sharpening knives but others in the house are not, so I bought this for them to be able to maintain a great edge on all our knives when I am not around to sharpen them. My Global knives are 20 years old and this sharpener has put the correct angles back onto the edge for me in a really simple and easy to use way. This sharpener has coarse and medium grit stones so I finish my knives with a fine ceramic "steel" rod to get that really sharp finish. There is another model with 3 stones which may be better if you don't already have a fine ceramic "steel". This 2 stone model will do a good job without any further edge finishing if you are not as fussy as I am. I recommend this for any Global knife owner as it is easy and fast to use and will keep your knives in top condition.Read full review
