Finally, a Ceramic Knife Sharpener from Kyocera

Kyocera Battery Powered Ceramic Knife Sharpener
Kyocera Ceramic Knife Sharpener!

If you own ceramic material kitchen knives, then this is the sharpener for you. We have never recommended end users sharpening their own ceramic knives before, we always encouraged them to send them back to the manufacturer for maintenance. Kyocera is a foremost producer of ceramic material products, and when they decided to make a sharpener we were very excited. This sharpener uses diamonds, runs on batteries, is very safe, and is quite easy to use. If you own ceramic knives, this is the sharpener for you.

SOG Tabletop Sharpener

SOG Tabletop Sharpener
SOG Countertop Sharpener
A classy new offering from SOG Knives. This carbide tip sharpener is a snap to set up. The suction cup system and small size make it a real natural for a kitchen or anywhere. This second generation model sits up about 3/4″ higher than the first generation. This should make the sharpening easier. It’s small, so will store easily and suts up in a quick motion and then will effectively dress up a blade quickly. We’re not sure if SOG will offer replacement carbide tips, but the ones supplied should last a long time and these are very reasonably priced.
