I finally purchased a Santoku knife (a MAC). Okay to sharpen with Chef's Choice electric sharpener?

While Peter no longer works for Food52 he still thinks up ways to make the website better.

Likely not. According to this page of their website, only 1 of the electric models is recommended for "Asian-style" knife -- the M1520.

As far as the manual sharpeners, they don't have a comparison chart I can find, but you can look up your model on this page:

In general, congratulations! Santoku's are life-changing as far as I'm concerned.

Thank you, Peter.

How about a paring knife? Is there a life-changing paring knife I need to buy?!

There is an inexpensive sharpener that works well with MAC. You can find it on MAC's website: http://www.macknife.com...
