The Messermeister Pull Through Sharpener has become the honing (alignment) tool of choice for millions of Americans. One of the wo...rst things people can do is pull a knife blade edge through a fixed V or set of cross rods because it is the same as scraping the sides of the edge against any fixed object. Messermeister introduces their Pull Through Sharpener with moving wheels, which lessens the scraping effect. The 2 stage honing and sharpening tool has a fine diamond wheel (for fine sharpening) and a ceramic wheel (for fine honing). Both wheels provide the least abrasive resistance and therefore are kinder and gentler to the knife edge. Available in our Messermeister blue. (Not recommended on our fine edge elite knives or our Japanese knives.). read more


This classic manual sharpener is designed by Taylor's Eye Witness, which was established in 1883. This full metal manual sharpener... is manufactured in Sheffield England and is the finest pull through sharpener on the market. This unique design is on permanent display at the New York Museum of Modern Art. At the heart of the machines are two butcher steels; the same hardness, temper and cut as a professional steel. The steels are preset at the optimum angle and are spring loaded so as not to damage the knife.The steels revolve under tension and do not wear away the blade. To use, wipe the blade clean, draw the knife between the steel rods 4 or 5 times, as if slicing, and using enough pressure to rotate the steels. Use the Chantry frequently, preferably before each time a knife is used. The black mini Chantry sharpener works the same as the regular Chantry but is small enough to store in a drawer. The Chantry manual sharpener is not recommended for fine edge knives or Japanese knives. read more
