In Reply to: Knife Sharpeners (once more) posted by Porky on March 19, 2011 at 17:25:46:
I've used my Edgepro to sharpen a lot of knives, both at home and in the field at BBQ comps. There is a light year of difference between the Chef's Choice Knife destroyers and the EdgePro. While the CC sharpener will give you a satisfactory edge on the correct knife type(I would NEVER put a Japanese blade through a CC no matter what their marketing material says), you are sacrificing blade material for convenience. The CC removes a LOT of metal and will quickly transform your 10" chef's knife into a 4 inch pairing knife with regular usage. Simply put, the Edgepro produces and edge that requires fewer resharpenings than the CC. The Edgepro also removes far less metal than the CC.
Unless you have a need to do scissors or are planning on doing a lot of knives on the road, the Edgepro Apex is the same unit as the Pro from the table up. In some cases the Apex is a better tool since the pro requires a smooth surface in order to use the suction mount stand. (The pro doesn't stick well on folding plastic tables).
The Edgrpro will allow you to put better edges on more types of blades with fewer resharpenings than the CC.
