Smith’s, the leader in innovative sharpening
technology, is proud to offer an electric knife sharpener that
incorporates both manual and mechanical sharpening elements. This
unique combination provides a broad capability to easily sharpen dull
blades and maintain razor sharp edges.
The sharpening wheels on your Smith’s Electric/Manual Knife
Sharpener are made from bonded synthetics. The synthetics used are
selected for their ability to guarantee longer wheel life, uniform
cutting, and minimum heat build up, so that de-tempering of your blade
does not occur. Our wheels are manufactured according to strict
tolerances in order to ensure the same high quality on each and every
wheel that we make.
The crossed ceramic rods put the final finished edge on your
blade. Crossed ceramic rods create a pre-set sharpening angle that
lightly hones both sides of your blade at the same time; thus, putting
a polished, razor-sharp edge on your knife. Also, use the crossed
ceramic rods for a quick touch-up of already sharp knives. Just a few,
quick pulls through the sharpening slot is all it takes. Smith’s
recommends always using the ceramic rods for final edge honing after
you sharpen using the synthetic wheels. Again, just a few pulls through
the sharpening slot is all it takes.

Caution: Always sharpen your knife blade from the heel to the
tip of the blade. Never insert the tip of the knife blade into the
blade guide first or push your knife blade through the sharpening slot.
This could damage the knife sharpener and/or your knife. Due to some
handle designs, you may not be able to sharpen the entire length of the
blade using the electric sharpening wheel. We recommend using the
manual sharpening slots in these limited cases.
