WSCPE5: E5 Electric Kitchen Knife Sharpener

Work Sharp Culinary

The premier E5 Electric Knife Sharpener automates your knife sharpening experience with One Touch Programming. It's never been easier to shape, sharpen and refine the cutting edge of every knife in the kitchen. Together with an 8" ceramic honing rod and built-in MicroForge technology, your knives will cut like new every time you start a culinary adventure.


The Work Sharp Culinary E5 electric kitchen knife sharpener uses controlled speeds and timed sharpening cycles to shape, sharpen and refine all your kitchen knives at the touch of a button. Based on traditional belt sharpening practices, the E5 creates a sharp-as-new edge the same way manufacturers sharpen knives at the factory.

Precision sharpening guides, controlled speeds, and high-performance sharpening belts make the E5 knife sharpener easy, clean, and gentle on knives. A dual grit ceramic honing rod uses sharpening guides for consistent edge refinement and includes a MicroForge port to cold forge micro-facets along the cutting edge. A MicroForge edge enhances cutting performance, extends edge durability, and improves knife control.

When you are ready to start preparing a meal, just a few strokes along the honing rod and your knives are ready to go. Honing preserves the cutting effectiveness of your knives, and extends intervals between sharpening. Maintaining your edges preserves the value of your cutlery, and lets you continue to enjoy the art of cooking!

One Touch Programming

Exclusive to the E5 series, One Touch Programming has the sharpening knowledge built-in. Push to Shape, Sharpen, or Refine, and the E5 automatically adjusts speeds and running time to match the degree of sharpening desired.

Professional Grade Sharpening Belts

The E5 electric sharpener uses a professional grade sharpening belt engineered specifically to sharpen knives without removing excessive material—protecting the value of your kitchen knives, extending their life, and maintaining sharp-as-new cutting performance. When knife manufacturers create a new knife, they use abrasive belts to create a razor-sharp cutting edge. Work Sharp Culinary kitchen knife sharpeners use the same belt technology to safely keep your knives sharp as new. Sharpening with belts creates a convex cutting edge on your knife. This type of edge is the choice of professionals and knifemakers for its ability to cut better and stay sharp longer than flat ground edges. Work Sharp Culinary belts are engineered to be long lasting, gentle on knives, and maintenance-free. Your knives will perform like new again, without ever leaving your kitchen.

Dual Surface 8" Ceramic Honing Rod with MicroForge

The ceramic honing rod incorporates a fine side for honing sharpened knives to a razor-sharp finish, and a coarse side to quickly touch up knives between sharpening—delivering a fresh cutting edge before each meal in only a minute or two. Honing preserves the cutting effectiveness of your knives, and extends intervals between sharpening.

Exclusive MicroForge Technology

Work Sharp Culinary's exclusive MicroForge technology creates a longer lasting, more durable edge with greater cutting control. MicroForge can be applied to any knife through a cold forging process available on the E5 and M3 sharpeners. MicroForge applies micro-facets to the cutting edge of the knife blade. The resulting combination of straight and faceted cutting edges enhances cutting performance with veggies, fruits, cooked proteins, and your favorite freshly baked bread.

Precision Sharpening Guides

Sharpening guides eliminate guesswork and uneven sharpening. The E5 applies the 17° Work Sharp Edge—a balance of the precise cutting ability of Eastern knives and the strength and durability of Western knives. Combined with the convex shape of the cutting edge created by sharpening with belts, your knives will perform like new or better, stay sharp longer, and continue to provide the value and integrity your knives were made to deliver.
