Something to keep in mind. All knife manufacturers do not use the same bevel angle for the edge. With any of the pull thru or electric sharpeners, you are limited to the angle of the sharpener, since it is fixed. Depending on your knives, manufacturer and style, you may want different angles. Some knives, with a higher rockwell can take more acute angles than those made with softer steels. That being said, if the pull thru/electric works for you and your knives, it's not an issue!

The Furi fingers are good in that they are the most gentle of the mechanical sharpeners and very easy to use.

However if you want very sharp knives, you'll need to learn how to use a stone, or a system using stones such as the edge-pro apex.
