Product Details

The revolutionary HORL 2 sharpener takes the guesswork out of the most tricky aspect of using a whetstone: getting the sharpening angle right. It’s also exponentially quicker, as there is no soaking needed. But like a whetstone, it’s suitable to use on both Western and Japanese knives. There are two parts to the HORL 2: an angle support bar and a roller. The knife, blade side up, attaches to the angle support bar, which has two options on either side: 20° for standard Western blades and 15° for thinner Japanese blades. The knife stays in place thanks to strong magnets, while you move the roller back and forth on the other side of the blade a few times. The roller also has two sides: a diamond disc for sharpening and a ceramic disc for honing. The standout feature of this HORL 2 Pro model is the planetary technology: this allows the wheel to work three times faster than the HORL 2. The angle bar and roller have a dark bronze aluminium finish. Another feature of the HORL 2 Pro is that it is heavier, providing a more stable grip when rolling. This sharpener will last forever, and every part is easily replaceable in the event of damage. 

Why we love it

'The HORL 2 is quick, neat, and effective. While whetstones take time and practice to master, the HORL 2 does not. It’s like having the ease, speed and definition of a pull-through sharpener, but the versatility and relative gentleness of a whetstone.'
