Made from cast iron with a high gloss Gun Metal finish, featuring angled steels. The Chantry Knife Sharpener can be used instead of a traditional honing steel. Used to sharpen plain or serrated knives, restoring the cutting edge of the blade. It gives a sharp cutting edge without damaging the blade and requires no batteries or mains electricity making it portable and reliable.
The base has hole guides which allow the sharpener to be drilled and secured to a surface for even safer sharpening and to ensure it's easy to find in a busy professional kitchen.
The Taylor's Eye Witness Chantry Knife Sharpener reproduces the action of a butcher's steel. It automatically ensures the correct edge angle is applied and equally sharpens both sides of the blade. The steels revolve under tension and do not wear away the blade. The sharpener can be used from either side and either left or right-handed. After prolonged use, you may need to fit replacement steels.
Instructions for use are as follows:
1. Wipe the knife blade to keep the Sharpener clean.
2. Draw the knife between the steels as if slicing bread, using enough pressure to engage the steels. Very dull knives may require more vigorous action.
For best results, use the Chantry Knife Sharpener frequently, preferably each time the knife is used. Please note that in some cases, a micro serration may be left on the blade, as part of the sharpening process.
The base has holes that allow the sharpener to be secured to a surface for even safer sharpening and to ensure it's easy to find in a busy kitchen. This is a great bit of kit that will sharpen any knife; Plain, Serrated, Scalloped edged, Carbon or Stainless Steel. Really blunt knives may require more vigorous action.
The knife sharpener is both easy to use and store and gives great results time after time.
