Patent owned by Changhe Kitchen
The concept comes from a Garlic press and I prefer light and classic, compact products, would like to design a simple sharpener for people, a classic and compact one, I started to draw with pencil and amended twice then asked engineer to build the 3D file, after that we made 3D samples and tested, at the 1st 3D sample we found the height is too low for the hand to catch, then we amended the file again and repeat to built a 3D sample and did the testing time and time...
When the first real product comes out, I know that is what I expected,
But for the wheel material, we have been tried almost 2 years and finally, we get the most suitable material for it.
This Asian type of is very easy to use and perfect for thin steel bevel edges, fixed with an advanced grey colour ceramic wheel for long life lasting. Rather than making scratches in the blade like most of the slot , this one designed with wider sharpening slot avoids scratches on your blade and ergonomics handle makes you feel very comfortable during the usage.
You can choose to use dry or with water, this "Asian Boy" will handle well.
1. Hold the handle down steadily with your hand;
2. Place the blade into the slot horizontally;
3. With slight downward pressure, pull the blade from heel to tip;
4.repeat the pulling action 8-10 times or until the is sharp
1.For sharpening straight blades only NOT for serrated or scissors
