It’s relatively hard to release a product that can surprise customers these days, especially when it comes to a market as competitive as the knife sharpener one. Nonetheless, a product that has managed to gain a massive success despite being one of the newer entries on the market is the Smith’s 50281 Adjustable Edge Pro model, a sharpener that you won’t be able to go without after only one try.

Its quality in performance and durability are ensured by the fact that it’s produced by one of the leading manufacturers at the moment, more precisely Smith’s Products. Since 1886, the company has dominated the scissors and knife sharpening market through the high-quality products that it has released. The dedication and commitment of the company guarantee that the 50281 is a lifetime investment and not a sharpener that will fall apart after a few months or years since you buy it. But don’t take our word or the manufacturer’s word on this, and check the rest of the review to find out what makes the electric sharpener such an impressive tool to have at your disposal.

 

Design

The aesthetically pleasant design of the 50281 sharpener makes it one of the most desirable additions to a modern kitchen. The black and gray finishes give it a sophisticated yet discrete look, so it will be a worthy centerpiece without being too flashy. Measuring only 10.4 inches in length, 5.8 inches in width, and 3.8 inches in height, it occupies little space in the kitchen as well. Thus, it’s perfect to place even on a more crowded counter as it won’t need much in the way of space.

Weighing only 6.7 pounds, it will be a breeze to move its location whenever you want. For example, you won’t have a hard time switching its location from the counter to a storage space such as the drawer or the cabinet when you’re done using it. This compact size is quite a great advantage as a discrete design goes a long way when it comes to appliances and tools that are mostly used in the kitchen.

Performance

Undoubtedly, it’s the performance of the Smith’s 50281 Adjustable Edge Pro that makes it one of the most desirable and reliable electric knife sharpeners at the moment. It offers two sharpening stages that you can use to restore the perfect cutting edge on your cutlery, regardless if you own serrated or straight blade knives. It features a knob that you can easily turn to select the desired resulting edge angle, having the possibility to set the sharpening angle anywhere from 10 degrees to 30 degrees.

Another highlight of this sharpener’s performance is the fact that it takes approximately 1 minute for it to finish restoring blade sharpness on a very dull knife. Also, when resharpening, the procedure takes only about 10 seconds. Therefore, speed is one of the product’s strong points. We also have to add the fact that it can be used on pocket or sporting knives, and that it can even sharpen household scissors. Thus, there’s no limitation to the sharpener’s versatility in use, proving to be a complete tool that will save your knives fast and with little to no effort on your part.

Features and Accessories

Definitely the most important feature that this electric sharpener boasts is the fact that it comes with the amazing Angle Adjust knob that allows you to set the desired sharpening angle. You can turn the knob and set this angle anywhere from 10 to 30 degrees, so you will be able to use the sharpener on all types of cutlery that you own, no matter if we’re talking about European, Asian, or American style knives.

Of course, we can’t overlook the fact that the diamond wheels are interlocking and that the ceramic wheels are overlapping. The great advantage offered by this feature is that it provides a simultaneous sharpening of both sides of the blade. Therefore, the blade will always be sharpened evenly on both sides. Not only this, but you will spend less time on the entire procedure as you won’t have to waste time restoring blade sharpness to one side of the blade and then to the other.

Ease of Use

The overlapping ceramic wheels and the interlocking diamond wheels that the 50281 model feature make it easy to work with it as both sides of the blades will be sharpened simultaneously. Thus, you won’t have to waste too much time when using it, and it won’t be too much work involved with the sharpening procedure either. Of course, another element that makes it incredibly convenient to use is the knob that allows you to easily select the sharpening angle.

To make it even more pleasant to use this electric knife sharpener and to increase safety as well, it comes with non-slip rubber feet that ensure it won’t budge an inch from where you place it on the counter or table, enhancing stability. Additionally, the comfortable rubber hand grip gives you a sturdy grip on the tool and it guarantees that it will be a breeze to sharpen your precious cutlery with it. What you must do to use it is to simply pass the cutlery’s blade through the first sharpening slot and then through the next, a procedure that won’t take more than a couple of minutes. To better understand how easy it is to use, check out the video above. But we ensure you of the fact that it will be a breeze to work with this sharpener regardless of how damaged the knife blade is.

Warranty and Support

Seeing how it’s made with durable materials, that it features quality abrasives, and that increased attention was paid when producing it, the impressive span of the warranty doesn’t come as a surprise at all.
