This is my second knife sharpener...

Love mine so much that I ordered one for my son-in-law who chops a lot of veggies and appreciates great tools. "knife sharpener" will never again show up in a query box again...for me and for him, too. Thanks for a great tool!

FINALLY! The best knife sharpener

I'm old enough that saying "no more searching for a good knife sharpener" reflects years and years of searching and disappointment. Being able to quickly grab it and "tune up" a knife is a total joy. I bought the original because it's heavy enough not to need help staying in place, and it's everything I hoped. This sharpener is destined for a Christmas gift for a friend who loves to cook and preps lots of veggies every weekend. Now there are two of us no longer searching for a knife sharpener. Thanks!

Best purchase

I have purchased numerous knife sharpening tools in the past but could have saved so much time and money if I had selected the Brod & Taylor Knife Sharpener first. Amazing results! Even the tomato slices are to perfection.

Recommended to me by a fisherman

Asked a fisherman how he sharpened his knives after I saw him fillet fresh steelhead. Bought mine a week later and am very pleased at the compactness and quality. I love having sharp knives!

Best tool ever!

Having moved somewhere where professional sharpening is hard to find, I was delighted to discover the Brod&Taylor sharpener. I’m getting professional results for the price I use to pay for a single sharpening of my four go-to knives. Easy-Peasy. Wouldn’t do it any other way now.

How it Works

Brød & Taylor sharpeners use a completely different sharpening technique, borrowed from the high-technology metal machining industry. Two extremely hard man-made tungsten carbide sharpeners are ground to a precision, specialized shape. Mounted on a spring-action bars, the patented system functions as three distinctly different sharpeners, with the function determined by the angle of the knife as it is pulled through. They are unique in their ability to perform four knife sharpening functions:


Realign a bent edge without removing metal. Great for daily maintenance.

Coarse Sharpen

Quickly restore the correct bevel shape to very dull or damaged knives.


Pull the knife through at an angle to hone and sharpen each serration.


Carbide Sharpening Surfaces

Unique, 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. With a simple change in hand position, these sharpeners also fine sharpen (hone) and polish a perfect beveled edge.

Spring-Action Bars

The carbide sharpeners are mounted on patented spring-action bars that adjust automatically to accommodate different blade angles. With the variable angle capability, our sharpeners work beautifully on serrated knives and single-bevel Japanese knives, as well as standard smooth knives.

Long Lasting and Durable

The sharpening mechanism is durable and can be expected to last at least 5 years with normal use. Replacement sharpening bars are available for the Professional and Classic countertop models.

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.
