Deglon Ceramics Knife Sharpener, 9-Inch

The Deglon Ceramics Knife Sharpener has very smooth milky white surface, something to the tune of 2,000 grit by feeling of it. Yet this smooth feeling does not make it any less abrasive, even the light stroke of the knife leave black steel residue on milky white surface. I love this tool, it’s bit more abrasive than Wusthof Diamond-Coated Sharpening Steel but it’s still a very fine sharpening tool. Be careful when handling the ceramic rod, they are brittle and break if you let them drop. In the range of 1,000 – 2,000 grit I prefer Deglon Ceramics Knife Sharpener to whetstones of corresponding grit rate, for easiness and convenience of use.

Wusthof Diamond-Coated Sharpening Steel

I bought the Wusthof Diamond-Coated Sharpening Steel (10 inch, model 4483) about two years ago in Vienna, Austria. After almost daily use over these two years it still looks and performs brand-new, no coating damage, no tear and wear. Unlike Deglon Oval Diamond Steel Knife Sharpener it’s more steeling than grinding tool, with extra fine grit diamond coating. Actually the Wusthof Diamond-Coated Sharpening Steel is one of only two sharpening tools that I use for my high-end knives, the other one being F. Dick 11-inch Multicut Steel. Buy it here – Wusthof 4483 10-Inch Diamond Sharpening Steel, Wide.

Make no mistake there is nothing subtle about this tool. It literally shaves a metal layer with each pass. This tool is good for really dull generic knifes or heavy duty butcher knives, don’t use it on damascus knives or any high-end brands. Still I like easiness of bringing really dull knife into shape with Deglon Oval Diamond Steel Knife Sharpener, a few strokes and the knife is ready for fine grinding, or steeling or stropping. it does a wonderful job on my bone choppers.
