Are you looking for a low price sharpening set up? Do you need a small portable solution to keeping your knife edges in top form while on the road? Are you new to Japanese knives and want to try your hand at basic blade sharpening? Well if you answered yes to any of the above, have we got a tool for you!

The Takeda Hand Held Knife Sharpener is, as the name suggests, a simple hand held whetstone set up that allows for easy and quick edge retrieval and tune ups.

There are two stones attached to either side of a wooden paddle. One is about an 800 grit and the other is about a 3,000 grit. They require a minimum time to soak—about one minute will do. Using a magic marker to define the edge of the blade, the tool is then deployed in a back and forth scrubbing motion to remove the ink marks. We strongly suggest looking at the instruction video for safe practices and a real understanding of the technique required.

This will obviously never replace a set of bench stones. But if you have ever gone to a friend’s home and found only dull blades or you are a traveling chef or caterer, this little tool could be all you need to keep your blades sharp on the go!

      Surprisingly great, October 15, 2018

    I wasn't sure what to expect from this thing. It seems a little gimmicky, but it put a screaming edge on my Takeda with very little effort. Saves dragging out all the other stones. This would work well for traveling too

      Great little tool, July 12, 2017

    After seeing Takeda-sans sharpening video and another video of the making of his knives (his staff is in the background actually using these stones), and after feading many reviews about the knife edges that the Takeda knives demonstrated from the factory, I felt that I must give this a try. While I have a full set of Shapton stones it is impossible to take these on the road with me. This set of stones fills the bill for travel and taking to the cooking classes which I teach. In sharing this with my students, I found them able to pick up the reverse engineering skills quickly and easily. The edge that this system gives is not as good as that which my Shaptons deliver, but it allows someone without my training and perseverence to get a quality edge without spending a fortune and without having to spend hours upon hours developing the skills that using a professional set of stones requires. Well done Takeda-san and thank you Mark for making this available in th US of A.

    I bought this on a whim just to see what upside down sharpening would be like, LOL! When it arrived I got it wet and proceeded to try it out on a petty just to see what it would do. I had a little trouble at first with the angle and scratched up the blade pretty good, but once I got the hang of it, it wasn't bad. I still like my regular stones much better. Where it did shine, we were traveling and I added it to my knife bag. When we got to our destination (relatives), I used it to sharpen their knives, I'm not good enough with it to say they got a great edge, but they now have a functional and much better edge than they had. Overall, it's nice for it's portability, pretty fun to play with and I can see how it would benefit a new sharpener to be able to see what is happening while they sharpen.

    Well, still trying to learn how to use it. Different concept to everything I have done for the past 50+ years. Like the idea, like the control, but maybe you can't teach an old dog new tricks, Ain't willin to give up on it yet. Just like sharpening free hand, got to be able to maintain the proper angle. I think it is worth a try for everyone that sharpens their own knives.
