Intey Knife Sharpener Two Stage Pro Sharpener
Intey Knife Sharpener is a two stage pro kitchen tool that will help make your knives sharper no matter how blunt, damaged or dull they may be. You will see two slots on the Intey for sharpening and honing as they are two inter-related but different things: Sharpening is making a dull edge sharper and honing is like the maintaining of an already sharp edge at an angle 2-3 degrees steeper, in other words the fine slot is for honing- polishing and finishing and coarse slot is for sharpening. It is quite safe and comfy to use with the ergonomic rubber grip handle and the way you keep your hand away from the sharpener and honer.
Intey is a small but efficient unit that will make knife sharpening tasks easier and more convenient and you’ll be able to make your knives sharper quickly with only a few pulls in your kitchen without having to chuck them out, and this way you will save some money. This great sharpener includes carbide blades at certain angles and will sharpen your stainless steel knives successfully. Intey Sharpener is made of Tungsten steel and zirconia ceramic (for the slot) and ABS and rubber base handle, sits nicely on the table with its TRP anti-slip rubber bottom that stays put on the surface and handle also makes it more stable. It is easy on the eyes with its sleek and modern design, weighs 7.2 ounces and measures 7.7 x 2.8 x 1.5 inches- has some weight to it, is well built, sturdy and heavy duty and even though small it is reported to do a better job than some larger units and can be stored easily.
The way you use it is you simply put the sharpener on a flat surface and hold the rubber handle while holding the knife shank with your other hand. It is designed for stainless steel knives and not for serrated knives. So you do just a couple of pulls on both slots but best if you don’t do back and forth, but always in the same direction. It is common sense but important that you keep it away from your kids so as to avoid any accidents. Please do not put the sharpening unit in a dishwasher or water in the sink or you will damage it, but do not worry if the zirconia ceramics on the honing slot fades, it is perfectly normal. Overall this is a great little knife sharpening unit with two stage functionality, ease of use, robust build and durability at a reasonable price. It is sent well packaged and offered with a 2 year warranty by the manufacturer and 3 month money back guarantee.
