Price Match Guarantee

Shun knifes are known for their incredibly sharp edges that make slicing effortless. The Shun Electric Knife Sharpener will help you keep them that way. This electric knife sharpener, made for Japanese cutlery, can sharpen an edge to the 16-degree edge that makes your Shun Classic and Ken Onion knifes so incredibly sharp. Many other knife sharpeners can only grind your knifes to a 22-degree edge, the standard angle for German knifes. It's important to sharpen your Shun knifes with a 16-degree sharpener if you want to properly renew the famous Shun sharp edges.

As a Shun knife customer I expected an excellent sharpener from this supplier. Unfortunately, I am very disappointed in the performance of the AP0119. The unit will not provide a sharp edge to a Shun 7-in. Santoku 16 Degree blade, let alone offer a restored factory quality edge. I have tried patiently to follow the written instructions. I had seen a comment that a DVD comes with the unit and offers some very good tips. The DVD was not included in my package. My Chef's Choice Mod#130 is used on my European blades and does a much better job. Based on my experience I will look at Chef's Choice for Asian blades for my next sharpener. EDITOR's NOTE: We're sorry you're not happy with the Shun sharpener. We have passed your comments onto Shun and we will be back in touch as soon as we hear from them.
