Certified as a Master Bladesmith by the American Bladesmith Society, Bob Kramer is one of the only Master Bladesmiths in the world specializing in kitchen cutlery. Put simply, Kramer is King of the Kitchen Knife. As such, Bob Kramer has seen the knife from every angle—as a chef, a professional knife sharpener, and a Master Bladesmith.

Fantastic Sharpening Kit!
Initially, we were a bit skeptical about how stable the block would be while sharpening.
It was incredibly stable!
The base fits perfectly in any sink, and does not shift at all. You really can see the difference as you move through the different stones.

There is a very clear online video that will guide you through the entire process. We sharpened over 20 knives our first time out!

We were so impressed by the performance that we went back & purchased the ZWilling Care Kit for Carbon Knives as well as the Stropping Block.

This is a high quality sharpening kit that will sharpen your knives better than any commercial sharpener on the market

Habit Forming!
Once you get the hang of it, you'll be going to the neighbor's house to get their knives! Takes a bit of practice but it's a zen-like experience with your beloved cutlery

Learning
I've never taken the time to learn to sharpen knives on a stone until I purchased my latest set of kitchen cutlery for our new farm house. I find this kit easy to use. I did not want to start using it on my new knives so I've been practicing on some old stainless knives and my grandmothers 100+ year old carbon steel knives, must say I'm getting the technique down. If you are going to spend the money for top quality cutlery why not take the time to sharpen them correctly. I will add the 3000 grit and the leather strop next

Best Sharpening System I have tried
I first heard of Bob Kramer from a New Yorker article and just recently went to the store to buy a Kramer knife. But then I thought what is the point of buying an expensive knife if you can't keep it sharp. So I bought the Kramer sharpening kit to try on my old knives first and, after a false start, got my knives razor sharp just like in his video. The trick is to press harder and go back and forth - a little different technique than the sharpening steel. Now I am going back for the Kramer knives!

Very nice, excellent results
I used to use oilstones, then Japanese water stones, and now this system. Being able to sharpen knives right by the source of water, and with these specially manufactured sharpening plates, really makes the job more pleasant, cleaner, and more accurate.

I come from a woodworking background, and am used to sharpening chisels and plane blades to be literally able to shave with them (that's how I knew they were fully sharp). Sharpening this way requires some feel and care, but the results will be superb when you become familiar.

I also got the strop, and sometime hope to get the finest sharpening stone as well.

This kit +video=super blade
These stones are special and are a great improvement over the stones of 30+years ago. Technology has hit the kitchen at the basic tools finally! If not for Bob Kramer we would be in the electric knife age.

I own a Ken Onion Shun set of knives that are ergonomically correct. Can they be sharpened using Kramer by Zwilling Knife Sharpening Kit?

I ask this question because I do not want to spend the money on the kit just in case they cannot work with these knives, and I also do not want to run the risk of destroying the knives without asking the question

Is the knife sharpening kit recommended for the Kramer-Shun Damaskus knives? I'm intrigued but don't want to ruin the beautiful finish on my set

How often would you recommend sharpening?

We just purchased a Shun knife and plan on keeping it for as long as we can. We are also vegetarians and cook only once or twice a week. How often would you recommend sharpening and which grits?
A shopper on Jan 5, 2014
Best Answer: If you're just learning to sharpen, I would just ""touch up"" about every 2-3 months on the 5k stone. If the knives are pretty dull at this point, you can drop down to the 1k grit. I dont recommend the 400 unless you know what you are doing. Otherwise you may do more damage than good. Its easier to keep a knife sharp by touching up than to sharpen a dull knife. If you have Shun with vg10 steel, a honeing rod is fine. If they have sg2 steel, i wouldnt hone since the metal is too hard and will create micro-chipping in the blade
