If your kitchen knives are anything like ours, they’re probably overdue for a sharpening. With these tools, it’s quick and easy to make them like new again.
Chef’schoice Trizor XV
A three-stage machine that sharpens both straight and serrated blades in a minute flat; resharpening takes about 15 seconds. A smart investment for maintaining expensive, high-quality knives. ($210, amazon.com)
Edge Grip Sharpener
The 50009 Edge Grip sets up on the end of a table or counter so you can manually run blades through two sharpening stages (coarse and fine). Although it’s not a powered sharpener, just a few pulls through each slot does the trick. Portable and easy to store at only 5 inches long, it comes in black, red, and green. ($6, amazon.com)
