I imagine this is sacrilege to bring up here with the apparent lack of posts It looks like there are many people here who are quite adept at sharpening by hand. Are any of these worth considering? My wife wants to get one for our kitchen knifes. The one she is looking at is the Chef’sChoice 15 XV Trizor Professional Electric Knife Sharpener. Apparently this one gets good reviews. It can convert and sharpen to 15%. If we get this is there any negatives for using this with my pocket knives?
