The Evolution of Sharpening: EdgeCraft’s introduction of its inaugural Chef’s Choice electric sharpener took knife sharpening from its primitive roots of sharpening sticks, elementary sharpening wheels and stones, to the 21st century and state of the art sharpening technology. Forever changing the fundamentals of effective knife sharpening, the Chef’s Choice Diamond Hone Sharpener Model 100 was the world’s first advanced technology electric knife sharpener. Soon after its introduction, the Model 100 earned the acclaim of food experts and chefs worldwide including Craig Claiborne , Pierre Franey, Jacques Pépin and Julia Child.
Worldwide Recognition: Over the next several decades, EdgeCraft’s Chef’s Choice line rapidly expanded to include a variety of electric knife and scissor sharpeners, manual sharpeners, diamond steels, diamond stones and sharpening rods. Internationally renowned, Chef’s Choice sharpeners, engineered and assembled at the Avondale, Pennsylvania facility, continue to receive both industry and consumer accolades for their quality and superb performance.
In 1992, EdgeCraft introduced its own line of premium kitchen knives. Chef’s Choice Trizor Professional 10X Cutlery is fully forged and handcrafted in the United States. Employing a technologically advanced higher-carbon stainless alloy and aerospace manufacturing technology, these knives feature edges that last up to ten times longer and are two-to three times sharper than leading European and domestic brands.
