The KE-280 Sharpener features a patented, angle controlled cushion contact system, which produces razor sharp knives and polished edges in seconds.
There are 2 closed-cell rubber covered wheels, each carrying endless Aluminum Oxide abrasive belts. The left wheel sharpens the left side of the blade and the right wheel, the right side. The cushion contact system produces a razor sharp smooth cutting edge which does not require a honing steel. During sharpening, the knife is supported at the correct angle by the central guide. Cleaning and replacement of the abrasives is simple, taking less than 1 minute. Other than this, no maintenance is required.
