After dropping a cool 43 bucks at Ross cutlery to have all my Globals sharpened (Don't get me wrong, they're amazing, friendly, old school but downtown LA is a haul and 43 bucks is 43 bucks!) I was wishing there was something better than my underwhelming mino sharp (The plastic whetstone wheel sharpener for people who are inept with whetstones like myself) I opened the WS catalogue and saw that Chef's Choice makes a model called hte 316/Diamond for Asian knives. They claim it's the correct 15 degree angle, blah blah blah. I know it's bucks, but as you can see, after a couple, few trips to Ross it would pay for itself.
The Global co. website s very orthodox, manual only, but this may be a legal thing, a pride of craftsmanship thing...who knows? Anyone done the Chef's Choice thing? Any advice?
