Hi all
A 'heretical' question, out of curiosity, has anyone ever heard of Nirey electric sharpeners, like here: http://www.nirey.com.tw/catalog13.htm ?
Any opinions on them ?

Most electric knife sharpeners aren't very good; but some are OK. Where the Nirey sharpeners fit on the continuum... Who knows?

Nirey/Shen knives and sharpeners are sold in the US under the "Master Grade" name. Martin Yan is a celebrity endorser and has a demo on youtoube. You can find tons of "civilian" reviews online by googling "master grade sharpener reviews."

I don't live in the US, but I've seen the video you mention on You Tube. I'm not getting one, as I use Edge Pro, but it seems to be a bit different to most other home electric sharpeners, as the angles don't seem to be fixed like in other sharpeners.
The 'civilian' reviews are usually positive, but I was curious to see if there were more 'professional' reviews...

I doubt you will find to many "professionals" that would use something like that.
