The HORL® sharpener

No one wants to sharpen knives, but everyone wants sharp knives. Well almost. Actually, we want both! The new sharpeners from HORL® convince with their stylish design, easy use and impressive sharpening results.

The „HORL®– Principle“

Position the knife. Grind. Hone. This is the simple grinding principle of the HORL® Sharpener. A new knife sharpening method is being redefined with the rotating diamond grinding disc which is guided gently along the cutting edge with a constant grinding angle. This combination guarantees an especially even and reproducible sharpening result for your favourite knives.

The HORL® Diamond

The industrial diamonds we use are suitable for efficiently sharpening all knife steels of any degree of hardness without water. When used properly, the Diamond Standard never needs to be replaced. The grain size of 46 μm grinds efficiently and precisely. A high-quality sharpening result is achieved in just a short time.

Always a constant grinding angle

The grinding angle is the key factor in knife sharpening.
The more consistently it is reproduced, the more precise and lasting the results are. Once sharpened, the knife is always positioned at exactly the same sharpening angle by the Angle Support which ensures fast resharpening, minimum material removal and a long service life for kitchen knives.

Securely held with the HORL® 2 Angle Support

The combination of strong neodymium magnets and the HORL® S-Pad make it possible to securely fix the knife during grinding. Strengthened by the anti-slip effect of the S-Pads, even small blades of any desired height can be consistently and reproducibly sharpened.

Second generation sharpness.

The new sharpeners from HORL® turn knife sharpening into a real experience. There is much to discover: With the new highlights of the HORL® series, everyone can find the right sharpener to suit their personal needs: Simply stable sharpness, full flexibility or maximum grinding speed.

Perfect results for
sharpness that amazes.

The most important parameters for sharpness are the grinding angle and the smoothness of the cutting edge. The finer the edge is ground, the more smoothly the knife glides through the food to be cut.
