The one I now recommend

I make high performance kitchen knives that combine art & engineering so it’s logical that I recommend a sharpener with the same properties. I own and have tried a lot of pull throughs over the years but none that matched my knives. Great sharpener thats cool enough looking to let you leave on the counter next to your knife block for convenient & easy honing & sharpening.

Smart sharpener with unique design.
Easy steps to take the guess work out for a super razor edge on most knives.

yeah, it sharpens

And it does a pretty good job of it. But it's awkward to use, with several hand and finger positions for various sharpening tasks. Those fingers always seem to be kind close to the moving, and getting sharper, blade. I thought I wanted to return it, but it gives good sharpening. Wear cut protection gloves and have at it!

Classic VG2 - Near as perfect, 1/10th the time, 5 times safer.

I’ve sharpened my own knives with stones for 45+ yrs. Very talented by now.

This sharpener does nearly as good a job on most knives and better on some of them - in 1/10th the time. Amazing. As I get older I am tired of constantly spending time sharpening knives and this device take seconds per knife, not minutes. I my coordination and eyesight fades, this device is a blessing for how safe it is to use vs hand sharpening. I plan on getting my siblings each one for their birthday. Very pleased with this product.

Best sharpener I’ve owned

This thing is dope!!!! Great gift for friends/family/yourself if you care at all about your knives and your sanity. A dull knife can be the most dangerous tool in a kitchen. This sharpener is well worth the $. Highly recommend!

Sharp made simple. Brod & Taylor's Knife Sharpeners are built with a unique sharpening technology to sharpen any knife with ease. Ultra-hard, precision ground tungsten carbide sharpening surfaces, like those used in high-precision machine tools, quickly create a more perfect “v” shape and a superior cutting edge. The carbide sharpeners are mounted on patented spring-action bars that adjust automatically to different blade angles. With the variable angle capability, our sharpeners work beautifully on standard knives, serrated knives, single-bevel Japanese knives, hunting and pocket knives, and more.

Glass Mug Features Infographic

Technology. Brød & Taylor sharpeners use two extremely hard, man-made tungsten carbide sharpeners ground to a specialized shape. Mounted on a spring-action bars, the patented system functions as 3 distinctly different sharpeners.

Hone. With the knife tip up - realign a rolled edge without removing metal. Great for daily maintenance.

Sharpen. With the knife tip down - quickly restore the correct bevel shape to very dull or damaged knives.

Serrated. For serrated knives, pull the knife through at an angle to hone and sharpen each serration.

Brød & Taylor Knife Sharpener Comparison

Our VG2 and Original sharpeners use the same tungsten carbide sharpening technology, but the VG2 creates sharper edges on even the hardest knives, has a wider blade angle range, and lasts up to 2x longer.
