Nothing more can be said about the 130 Professional sharpening station beside the fact that it's perfect for ALL of your needs. You can use it to restore blade sharpness in ceramic knives, serrated cutlery, and fine edge cutlery of all types and sizes.
Knife blade dullness is an inevitable occurrence with stainless steel cutlery as well as ceramic cutlery. Regardless of a knife’s initial value and its design, there comes a time when you have to polish its blade as it loses edge sharpness. When that moment comes, the tool that you must have at your disposal and use is the 130 electric knife sharpener manufactured by Chef’s Choice.
Besides the elegant design that makes it the preferred choice of professional chefs as well as home cooks, this sharpening product delivers an intuitive use and ultimate excellence in performance. Sure, the price tag is a little spicy when compared to other models on the market, but it’s undoubtedly worth the extra money.
A spectacular design is more than expected from a knife sharpener manufactured by Chef’s Choice by this point, so we weren’t caught off-guard by clean lines and stunning appearance of the 130 Professional model. Nonetheless, we still have to appreciate the simplistic yet modern design that makes it stand proudly among the preferred choices of pro chefs around the world. Weighing a mere 4.5 pounds and measuring 10 inches in length, 4.25 inches in width, and 4.25 inches in height, there’s no flaw to underline design-wise.
If you’re a connoisseur of edge versatility in knife sharpeners, you will surely appreciate the performance delivered by this model. Meant to be used for any kind of cutlery, including ceramic, serrated, and fine edge, the consistent and long-lasting edge finish delivered by it is hard to equal or surpass. What this truly unique station allows is a refreshing customization of the edge, thus guaranteeing optimal performance regardless of the task. When it comes to the resulting edge angle, know that it is 20 degrees, so there’s no limitation to how you can use it. Additionally, despite the fact that it offers single-sided sharpening, the role of the angle bevels is to guide your hands to ensure a smooth and precise use so that you won’t be able to damage knife blades.

It’s more than obvious that the biggest highlight of the 130 sharpener is the fact that it eliminates guesswork, producing a consistently razor sharp knife edge each and every time it is used as a result of the built-in precision angle guides that it features in all three sharpening stages. It comes with an on/off switch that allows a convenient manner to shut the compact appliance on or off whenever you desire. In addition, the stabilizing feet that it features ensure a safe and stable operation, keeping the electric sharpener neatly in its place when you’re using it.
In a matter of seconds, the station sharpens, steels, and strops all types of knives that you own, whether it be straight edge, serrated edge, pocket knives, kitchen knives, ceramic knives, sports knives, or any other type. Furthermore, it allows edge customization so that you can easily obtain a fine edge or a micro-serrated edge on the knife, depending on the tasks that you require the cutlery piece for. To quickly obtain a flawless fine edge, use sharpening stages 1 and 3. During the first stage, the edge is shaped and sharpened, while the third stage uses ultra-fine abrasives to strop and polish the edge – three of four pulls suffice.
To create a perfectly steeled edge, pass the knife through all three sharpening stages. For unprecedented results, sharpen the blade by taking it through stage one, then proceed to stage two where the miniature steel along with the precision guide enhance blade sharpness and finish the process by passing the cutlery piece through the third stage where you strop it.
