Knife Sharpener Test Methods
#Manual Knife Sharpeners
We test knife sharpeners out on various food items to find out the maximum level of sharpness you can achieve with each sharpening device.
After sharpening, we check the edge of the knife for deformities and rate the edge smoothness achieved by each handheld sharpener.
We test our sharpeners for the amount of metal they peel off a blade as they sharpen the knife to a serviceable sharpness level.
#Electric Knife Sharpeners
We check the amount of material removed after an electric knife sharpener brings a dull knife to sharpness level 9.
We test the speed of electric sharpeners by measuring the time it takes for each to sharpen a knife to beef tandon cutting level.
We check the knife edge for smoothness, evenness, and width after running it through the electric sharpener.
