The Evolution of Sharpening: Chef’sChoice’s introduction of its inaugural electric sharpener took knife sharpening from its primitive roots of sharpening sticks, elementary sharpening wheels and stones, to the 21st century and state of the art sharpening technology. Forever changing the fundamentals of effective knife sharpening, the Chef’sChoice® Diamond Hone® Sharpener Model 100 was the world’s first advanced technology electric knife sharpener. Soon after its introduction, the Model 100 earned the acclaim of food experts and chefs worldwide including Craig Claiborne , Pierre Franey, Jacques Pépin and Julia Child.
