Global MinoSharp Plus 3 Ceramic Water Sharpener
We like these sharpeners from Global. They offer three stages of grits and have a water reservoir. Here’s what Global says about them:
For some people, learning the skill of intermediate sharpening with a ceramic or diamond rod is difficult. It is essential that you maintain your knives on a regular basis and it will be easier to maintain them for the long term. These sharpeners will do the job. These are hand held ceramic sharpeners and no experience or skill is required to use them. Simply fill the reservoir with water and run your knife backwards and forwards a few times. The revolutionary ceramic wheels ensure the blade is sharpened at the correct angle.
If ease of use is your primary consideration, this hand held sharpeners is the perfect sharpening tool for you. All models can only be used for knives that are equally sharpened on both sides. They cannot be used for serrated knives or knives sharpened on one side like the Bunmei knives. All of the MinoSharps use ceramic wheels for sharpening.
