Cubikook Manual vs SunrisePro Supreme Manual Side-by-Side Comparison

The Cubikook and the SunrisePro manual sharpener are both fast and effective, but the former offers better stability and is more gentle to the knife’s edge.

SunrisePro Supreme Manual vs Cubikook Manual

Overall Verdict

Both the Cubikook CS-T01 and the SunrisePro sharpener are made of quality materials. They both have strong builds with parts fitting together solidly, though the SunrisePro is holding up slightly better after a year of use.

The Cubikook’s traditional base and substantial size offer better stability and ease of use. The greater number of slots also gives it a headstart when it comes to creating an attractive, smooth edge while removing the minimal amount of material from the blade. It’s not as quick as the SunrisePro but is among the top players in terms of speed. 

The SunrisePro poses as a compact and convenient sharpener; however, its suction base requires specific conditions to work properly. With only one slot, consisting of keen tungsten carbide blades, it sharpens in no time but also eats away the knife’s edge just as quickly. Whether the slightly faster speed compensates for its aggressiveness against the knife’s edge is simply a matter of preference.
