Chef's' products are always high quality and I have been very satisfied with them. I do have issues with the shipping service. It usually takes a minimum of two weeks between the order date and arrival of the product. I order many things on-line and Chefs is notably the slowest to deliver.
I purchased a diamond head 463 sharpener because of a review I read in cook's choice Mag. in the hope that I finally would get one that did the job as advertised. I have gone through 3 or 4 others plus a stone that I couldn't master. None did the job! My wife is not a nag but she did nag me about dull knives until I used the 463. It is ergonomically satisfactory.It is very stable on the work surface and creates a very fine edge,also quick and easy to resharpen. With just a few strokes on the second stage it is as good as new. No more torn unsliced bread or shreaded chicken breastes. Very good product at the righr price.
