ZWEISSEN Diamante Knife Sharpener
The ZWEISSEN Diamante is a professional-level kitchen tool is able to sharpen steel knives with the same quality as a professional with its two-stage sharpening system.
The first stage uses a diamond-coated steel sharpening wheel to sharpen, realign, and prepare the blade for the second step. For many, this is as sharp as the blade would need to be to make a good cut.
The second stage runs the blade through an ultra-fine 1000-grit ceramic sharpening wheel, which hones the blade to a razor-sharp finish. The two-stage system creates a double-bevelled edge that will last up to twice as long as a standard single bevel. The ceramic cut is a cleaner process, with the final edge more refined than that rougher steel finish. This is especially true for new blades that don’t require aggressive sharpening surfaces to restore their edge.
Diamante’s base features a rubber backing to prevent the unit from slipping while it’s in use, and the wide stainless-steel-backed handle allows you to hold it steady with security and safety. Additionally, the bi-directional design allows the Diamante to be used either right or left handed.
Note that the two-stage design is intended for knives with a two-sided cutting edge, so be sure to check before you begin sharpening. Most knives are designed like this. The Diamante is not suitable for Asian, coated, or ceramic knives.
The Diamante is a high-quality answer to the need for a convenient, professional-grade knife sharpening tool. It’s eye-catching, ZWEISSEN-red base and stainless-steel accents will compliment any kitchen; last, the benefits of frequent knife sharpening will be plain to see in the lasting life of your kitchen utensils.
