by sharpening in both stages the entire length
of the edge is sharpened.
Small rubber feet secure the Pronto
to any
dry clean surface. The soft touch handle further
reduces the opportunity for slippage while
Note: Always clean your knife before sharpening
in the Pronto
You will find that the Pronto
can create and
maintain an exceedingly sharp and effective edge
on all your conventional fine edge and serrated
cutlery. The primary edge facets are each formed
in Stage 1 at a nominal 20 degrees which results
in a total primary edge of 40 degrees. Stage 2
creates a second bevel at a slightly larger angle
leaving a strong double beveled edge structure
that will stay sharp longer.
Always use the sharpener with the stage
numbers 1 and 2, facing you.
Safety: Keep your fingers clear of the blade
edge at all times. Hold the handle with your left
hand making certain that all your fingers and thumb
remain safely behind the partition wall where the
handle attaches to the sharpening stage.
To sharpen, hold the sharpener on the table with
your left hand. Insert the knife blade into the slot of
Stage 1. Press down to bring the knife edge into
firm sustained contact with both of the two internal
diamond coated disks and slide the blade back
and forth in a sawing-like motion. For optimum
results center the blade left to right in the slot
and avoid rubbing against the walls of the slot.
Apply a downward force of about 4-5* pounds as
you move the blade. Listen carefully to the disks
to insure they are rotating when you move the
blade. Sharpening will not be as effective if you
press too lightly while sharpening.
If your knife, before sharpening, is not very dull
you may find that only about 10 or less back and
forth stroke pairs in Stage 1 (with recommended
downward pressure) will be sufficient to put a
keen edge on the blade. However, if the knife
starts out very dull you may find that 20 or more
back and forth paired strokes will be needed the
first time as you reshape and sharpen the old
edge. Before leaving Stage 1 check the edge for
sharpness by slicing a piece of paper. It should
cut paper readily with only a slight roughness
to the cutting action.
* 4 to 5 pounds is about the weight of a 2 inch thick
telephone book
If the knife is correctly sharpened in Stage 1 only
2-3 back and forth stroke pairs in Stage 2 will
complete the small second bevel and the edge
will be very sharp and effective. It should cut
paper smoothly allowing you to make straight
or curved cuts easily.
For optimum results center the blade (left and
right) within the slot and keep the length of the
blade aligned with the center line of the slot as
you sharpen. Apply about 4-5 pounds downward
force in Stage 1 and a little less – about 3-4
pounds pressure on the blade in Stage 2. Make
smooth consistent strokes while maintaining
recommended downward pressure and make
certain the disks are turning.
Follow the procedure for Stage 2 described
above for “Using Pronto
”, making two to
three (2-3) pairs of strokes while maintaining
recommended downward pressure. Listen
to confirm the sharpening disks are turning. Test
edge for sharpness and if necessary make four
(4) back and forth pairs of strokes in Stage 1
followed by two to three (2-3) pairs in Stage 2.
Generally you should be able to resharpen
several times using only Stage 2.
Serrated blades can be sharpened in Stage 2.
Center the blade in the slot of Stage 2 and make
five (5) forward and back stroke pairs. Examine
the edge and if necessary make another 5
full strokes. Examine blade. If the blade to be
sharpened is very dull, first make two full strokes
(forward and back pairs) in Stage 1 and then
make five (5) paired strokes in Stage 2. Because
of its nature, a serrated knife will never appear
as sharp or cut as smoothly as a straight edged
blade. Caution: Do not make many strokes in
Stage 1, which can quickly remove metal from
a serrated edge.
The Pronto
which sharpens at a primary angle
of 20 degrees, can sharpen double faceted Asian
blades such as the Santoku which is traditionally
sharpened at 15º. However, for optimum results
we recommend a 15º sharpener such as the
Electric Models 15XV or 1520 as
the preferred choice for all Asian style blades.
Do not sharpen in the Pronto
any single
sided, single faceted Asian Kataba knives,
such as the traditional sashimi styled blade
that is commonly used to prepare ultra thin
sashimi. The Pronto
sharpens simultaneously
both sides of the cutting edge while the sashimi
knives are designed to be sharpened only on
one side of the blade. The previously mentioned
Chef’sChoice electric sharpeners will also
correctly sharpen these single sided knives.
The Pronto
is not recommended for ceramic
Do not attempt to use the Pronto
to sharpen
scissors. EdgeCraft does manufacture both
electric and manual scissor sharpeners.
The Pronto
will put an excellent edge on all of
conventional metal Euro/American and Santoku
style knives regardless of brands, including
Henckels, Wüsthof, Sabatier, Global, Lamson and
Goodnow, Russell Harrington, Chef’sChoice,
Messermeisser, Forshner, Mundial, Cuisinart,
Kitchen Aid, Shun and many, many more.
To test for sharpness and cutting ability of your
knife, hold a sheet of paper vertically by its upper
edge and carefully cut down through the sheet
a small (but safe) distance from your fingers. A
sharp edge (on a straight edge blade) will cut
smoothly without tearing the paper.
Alternatively try cutting a tomato. The knife
should penetrate the skin of the tomato and
cut through it on the first pull without applying
significant force to the knife.

The Pronto
Diamond Hone
by Chef’sChoice
, the worlds leader in cutting
edge technology, is an exceedingly fast manual
sharpener that will create an exceptionally
effective cutting edge on all of your conventional
household cutlery. The cutting edge is finely
honed to extreme sharpness but retains strong
microscopic teeth that gives it a highly effective
bite for all your food prep needs and especially
for fibrous materials. The edge is surprisingly
durable yet can be resharpened quickly when-
ever necessary.
You will be pleased to see how easy the Pronto
is to use and how well your knives perform. Read
and follow the instructions carefully. Keep the
sharpener close at hand so that you can enjoy
the pleasure of sharp knives every day.
You will appreciate that the soft touch ergonomical
handle of the Pronto
is extremely comfortable
providing a secure grip. There are two slots, the
first (#1) uses fine diamond abrasives to create
and hone a sharp primary edge and a second slot
(#2) where that edge is ultrahoned at a slightly
larger angle with micron size diamonds to its
final sharpness.
In each, the first and second stage, both sides
of the edge are sharpened simultaneously by
two precision diamond coated conical honing
disks. The orientation of the disks is such that

Aiguiseur de couteaux

modèle 464 Diamond Hone





Félicitations !!
Le Pronto
Diamond Hone
fabriqué par
, leader mondial des technologies
de pointe, est un aiguiseur manuel
exceptionnellement rapide qui permet d’obtenir
un tranchant incroyablement efficace pour
toute la coutellerie de ménage conventionnelle.
Le tranchant est finement affilé jusqu’à être
extrêmement aiguisé, mais conserve des dents
microscopiques qui donneront un mordant très
efficace pour tous vos besoins de préparations
culinaires, en particulier pour les matières
fibreuses. Le fil est étonnamment résistant mais
peut être ré-aiguisé rapidement chaque fois que
cela s’avère nécessaire.
Vous serez ravi par la facilité d’utilisation du
et par l’efficacité de vos couteaux. Veuillez
lire et suivre attentivement les instructions.
Gardez l’aiguiseur à portée de main pour pouvoir
apprécier au quotidien le plaisir d’avoir des
couteaux bien aiguisés.
Vous apprécierez le toucher souple de la poignée
ergonomique du Pronto
, extrêmement
confortable et qui procure un maintien sûr. Il
comporte deux fentes. La première (n° 1) utilise
des abrasifs fins en diamant pour obtenir et
affiler un premier tranchant aiguisé et la deuxième
fente (n° 2) permet l’ultra-affilage du tranchant
à un angle légèrement plus grand grâce à des
diamants de la taille du micron pour lui donner
l’aiguisage final.
Dans chacun des deux modules, les deux
côtés du tranchant sont affûtés simultanément
par deux disques à affiler diamantés de précision.
L’orientation des disques est telle que l’aiguisage
en deux étapes permet d’affûter la lame sur
toute sa longueur.
De petits pieds de caoutchouc maintiennent
le Pronto
sur n’importe quelle surface sèche
et propre. La poignée au toucher souple réduit
encore le risque de glisser pendant l’affûtage.
Remarque : Nettoyez toujours votre couteau
avant de l’aiguiser avec le Pronto
Vous découvrirez que le Pronto
d’obtenir et de garder un tranchant exception-
nelement aiguisé et résistant pour toute votre
coutellerie à lame lisse conventionnelle ou
à dents. Chaque face du tranchant initial est
formée dans le module 1 avec un angle nominal
de 20 degrés, ce qui donne un angle total de 40
degrés au premier tranchant. Le module 2 forme
un second biseau à un angle légèrement plus
ouvert, donnant ainsi au tranchant une structure
à double biseau résistante qui restera aiguisée
plus longtemps. Utilisez toujours l’aiguiseur avec
les numéros des modules 1 et 2, face à vous.
Sécurité : Tenez toujours vos doigts éloignés
du tranchant de la lame. Tenez la poignée avec
votre main gauche en vous assurant que tous
vos doigts et votre pouce restent en sécurité
derrière la paroi de séparation là où la poignée
est fixée au module d’aiguisage.
Pour aiguiser, maintenez avec votre main gauche
l’aiguiseur sur la table. Insérez la lame du couteau
dans la fente du module 1. Enfoncez-la afin
que le tranchant du couteau soit maintenu en
contact étroit avec les deux disques internes
diamantés et faites glisser la lame d’avant en
arrière comme un mouvement de sciage. Pour
un résultat optimal, centrez la lame latéralement
dans la fente et évitez qu’elle frotte contre les
parois de la fente. Appliquez une force vers le bas
d’environ 2* kilos tandis que vous faites bouger
la lame. Écoutez attentivement les disques pour
vous assurer qu’ils tournent bien lorsque vous
faites bouger la lame. L’affûtage ne sera pas
aussi efficace si vous appuyez trop faiblement
pendant l’aiguisage.
Si avant l’affûtage, votre couteau n’est
pas trop émoussé, vous découvrirez que 10
mouvements de va-et-vient complets lors de
l’étape 1 (en appliquant la pression recommandée
vers le bas) sont suffisants pour donner un
tranchant affilé à la lame. Cependant, si le couteau
