There is no substitute for a good set of water stones when it comes to sharpening your kitchen knives. However, there are times or places where using stones or strops is not viable. That is where the Tojiro Kent Roll Sharpener comes in handy.
The Kent sharpener has a single rolling system stone inside the body. The stone will revolve as you move the knife blade backward and forward. The sharpener uses a straight-crossed stone for simple operation. It will give your knife edge a tooth which will get you through your session until you have time to put your blade to your favorite stones.
This is not a substitute for a proper sharpening regime, which should be followed regularly. But for quick edge revitalizations, the Tojiro Kent is a great addition to your kitchen accessory arsenal.
