E5 ELECTRIC KNIFE SHARPENER WITH CERAMIC HONING ROD AND MICROFORGE™ TECHNOLOGY
The Work Sharp Culinary E5 electric kitchen knife sharpener uses controlled speeds and timed sharpening cycles to shape, sharpen and refine all your kitchen knives at the touch of a button. Based on traditional belt sharpening practices, the E5 creates a sharp-as-new edge the same way manufacturers sharpen knives at the factory.
Precision sharpening guides, controlled speeds, and high-performance sharpening belts make the E5 knife sharpener easy, clean, and gentle on knives. A ceramic honing rod uses sharpening guides for consistent edge refinement, and includes a MicroForge™ port to cold forge micro-facets along the cutting edge. A MicroForge™ edge enhances cutting performance, extends edge durability, and improves knife control.
When you are ready to start preparing a meal, just a few strokes along the honing rod and your knives are ready to go. Honing preserves the cutting effectiveness of your knives, and extends intervals between sharpening. Maintaining your edges preserves the value of your cutlery, and lets you continue to enjoy the art of cooking!
ONE TOUCH PROGRAMMING
Exclusive to the E5 series, One Touch Programming has the sharpening knowledge built-in. Push to Shape, Sharpen, or Refine, and the E5 automatically adjusts speeds and running time to match the degree of sharpening desired.
PRECISION SHARPENING GUIDES
Sharpening guides eliminate guesswork and uneven sharpening. The E5 applies the 17° Work Sharp Edge – a balance of the precise cutting ability of Eastern knives and the strength and durability of Western knives. Combined with the convex shape of the cutting edge created by sharpening with belts, your knives will perform like new or better, stay sharp longer, and continue to provide the value and integrity your knives were made to deliver. The E5 Upgrade Kit (sold separately) expands the sharpening capabilities of the E5 with 15° East and 20° West sharpening guides.
8" CERAMIC HONING ROD
The included ceramic honing rod delivers a fresh cutting edge before each meal in less than a minute by preserving the cutting effectiveness of your knives.
PROFESSIONAL GRADE SHARPENING BELTS
The E5 electric sharpener uses a professional grade sharpening belt engineered specifically to sharpen knives without removing excessive material – protecting the value of your kitchen knives, extending their life, and maintaining sharp-as-new cutting performance. The E5 comes with one sharpening belt installed and ready to use, with two additional belts stored inside the unit.
EXCLUSIVE MICROFORGE™ TECHNOLOGY
Work Sharp Culinary’s MicroForge technology creates the ultimate edge for cutting vegetables and utility work. MicroForge is only available on the M3 and E5 sharpeners.
