The 1520 knife sharpener dose what the ad says what it will do. I have both Asian and European knives, both of high quality. As they get older it is harder and harder to keep a quality edge by hand. I was able to bring all my knives back to new cutting edges in about a half hour. I sharpened 16 knives in that time. I se that I will be using the stropping part of the sharpener on a regular bacis, however; I see me using the main sharpener once or twice a year and still it is well worth the price.
