Design Notes

The innovative Robert Welch hand-held knife sharpener contains a replaceable ceramic sharpening wheel to micro-sharpen and hone your plain edged kitchen knives. Designed to maintain all plain edge kitchen knives. The quickest and easiest way to sharpen your kitchen knives. 

The ergonomic design gives maximum efficiency and comfort in use. The hand-held knife sharpener can be used right or left-handed and is weighted for stability and safety, with a non-slip base. The replaceable ceramic sharpening wheel is housed within an angled clear plastic guard which ensures the knives are aligned correctly with the sharpening wheel, positioned at the optimum sharpening angle for the Japanese-style 15° blade edge of the Signature & Professional range of kitchen knives. 

Use regularly to maintain the blade edge of your kitchen knives. We recommend that after 12-24 months, depending on frequency of use, you change the sharpening wheel in order to maintain your knife's cutting edge to a high standard. Replacement wheels are available individually or as a set of two. 

Whilst specifically designed for use with the Signature range of kitchen knives, this hand-held knife sharpener can also be used to maintain and sharpen other plain edge kitchen knives. Please note that serrated edge blades should not be sharpened with this product. 

Part of the Robert Welch kitchen collection, which includes kitchen knives, scissors, utensils, kitchen accessories, kitchen storage and textiles. Each piece has been designed to bring order to your kitchen, with storage and display ideas that will blend the satisfaction of a tidy space with a welcome sense of calm.

Cleaning the hand-held sharpener

Designing the Robert Welch way

Designing the Robert Welch way

Robert Radford Welch MBE, RDI was one of the most respected British designers of the 20th century. He believed that everyone should be able to use beautifully designed products in everyday life. After training as a silversmith at the Royal College of Art in London, he specialised in design for stainless steel, establishing a company in his own name in 1955.

Today, the company works to ensure its rich legacy remains an inspiration to the design team, whilst continuing to innovate in terms of technique and technology.
