The Amesser A-65 and the SunrisePro Supreme are both aggressive sharpeners but the former is slightly more friendly to both the user and the knife’s edge.
The Amesser, while taking off a considerable amount of material from the knife edge produced a smoother edge, as expected with more polishing stages. It also boasts a design that offers more balance and stability and is overall the easier one to work with.
The SunrisePro was faster by a far cry and could produce a keener edge, too. However, it shaved off just as much steel as the Amesser did and performed worse in terms of edge smoothness. With a modest body and a suction base that’s quite picky of the surfaces it sticks to, it didn’t score as well on ease of use either.
