This 4 stage sharpener sharpens all types of knives including Asian style blades and can be used for serrated and scalloped edges (ceramic fine stage only) and has a Soft Grip Handle.
Note: The first stage carbide (coarse) sharpens dull edges. The second stage ceramic (fine) provides a polished, razor sharp edge. A reasonably sharp knife may only require this light honing. These 2 stages are available in 2 versions of this sharpener - one set for western style blades - and one set for Asian style blades.
