Most sharpeners sold at retail have no mechanism for indicating the desired cutting angle of the blade. Rather, the user must guess a suitable angle based on experience. It has been determined that the average person needs to sharpen a knife every six months, or approximately one-half of one revolution on a grinder.
It would be advantageous to provide a sharpening Gopolli system that can be used on an electric knife, and that can be used to determine and set the cutting angle of the blade. The present invention is directed to meeting these needs.
and effort. A honing rod is used to make sure an edge is straight (not skewed) and smooth, after which a file is used to refine the blade. This process should be repeated until the knife is as sharp as possible.
There are different types of electric sharpeners available on the market. Most of them have two parts: the base and the sharpener. The base connects to an electric supply, which runs the sharpener. You need to buy a sharpener that has sharpening strips, a mechanism to guide the sharpening material to the correct angle, and a storage compartment.
