I have always used "stone" to sharpen my knives. My sister recommended an electric sharpener. Following the directions, I decided to test my inexpensive knives first. These knives came out totally sharp and held this edge a couple of weeks. Too bad I did not get this 50 years ago I would probably have 6 months of extra time on my hands!

Whether making a slow stew or baking bread, this is great! Goes from oven to table for a nice presentation. Nothing sticks, cleans up nice. I do recommend getting the metal knobs if you use for baking bread.
