Designed to the same exacting standards as our larger commercial machines, the CATRAHONE Diamond Power sharpener provides the home and very light duty commercial user with high quality sharpening to factory levels of sharpness.
Using a simple yet effective principle the unit provides the user with three operating slots
~1 for restoration of very worn blades that need cutting edge reformation
~2 for every day sharpening of most blades
~3 for that final super smooth hone after using slots 1 and 2
By use of the special cool sharpening technology, the sharpener does not need water cooling and yet does not over heat the cutting edge, unlike other dry sharpeners, providing you with the maximum edge life for you blades, up to 100% more life than some other electric power sharpeners. Compared to a sharpening steel is is sharper, faster, simpler to use and much safer.
The optimum cutting geometry is permanently set at 34° and won’t change with use, thereby not requiring any adjustment. Regularly sharpened plain edge knives on this machine are so sharp that they can slice bread better than a serrated or scalloped bread knife, leaving virtually no crumbs, creating a really smooth slice with the minimum of effort.

Customer product reviews
CATRAHONE It's not a pretty colour, it has no gizmos, would look at home in a workshop, but it works like a dream. Having always struggled, and failed, with numerous knife sharpening tools, I was sceptical about this, especially given its modest price. I was wrong, it put sharp edges on old knives of indifferent quality in no time at all and has transformed the preparation of food in our kitchen. No more hacking at loaves, ragged vegetables and poorly carved meat. It is the sort of present that will make a big difference to the day-to-day life of the recipient. I will be ordering some for friends and family this Christmas.
G Wright , Horsham UK *****
I bought the first unit for me, it is brilliant.
The second for our son for Christmas.
Now I am buying unit No3 for other son for his birthday. He was jealous of us!!

" We liked it so much we bought a second one for our holiday home" KG Devon UK ****
"Can I say I am absolutely delighted with the results. I am a retired chef and I have always found it difficult to keep a keen edge on modern knives especially in a domestic kitchen. I have now honed all my knives and they are now back to what I regard as a professional standard.
Thanks again for an excellent product. " David Baker, UK *****
"Absolutely brilliant product, my kitchen knives have never been so sharp. They were not that sharp when they were new. Thanks again for a great product and a quick delivery. " F. Bickley Wigan Lancashire, UK *****
"My sharpener arrived today, I am SO impressed with it. It works so well and after buying several other sharpeners I really rate this one, it works! I will be recomending it to everyone. Thank you. AJ Portlaoise Republic of Ireland *****
" So much faster than my whetstone and just as good a sharpness"
