The Smart Sharp sharpens blades to an exact angle of 20 degrees.
If you have previously sharpened your knife on a whetstone or steel then please note that due to the more freehand nature of these methods, the blade angle on your knives may be uneven or outside typical ranges. Therefore, it may take extra time and perseverance initially for your knife to adopt the new angle. Once achieved, continued use of the Smart Sharp will keep your blades at an even 20 degrees and future sharpening will take a fraction of the time.
The Smart Sharp is an all in one sharpener and is not intended to be used in conjunction with other sharpeners or sharpening methods. This is because sharpening angles on other devices may be different.
