  • I.O.Shen Electric Knife Wizard

    Cast a spell over the bluntest of knives and restore them to their former glory, with a little magic from the electric I.O.Shen Knife Wizard knife sharpener.

    Be under no illusion, all it takes is the flick of a switch and four simple steps to hone a perfect, precision edge onto any blade, whether smooth or scalloped, paring or cleaver, it's a worthwhile investment for any kitchen.

    Remember, a sharp knife is a safe knife!

    How it Works

    The Knife Wizard contains abrasive wheels with coarse and fine finishes. Each wheel has 2 slots so you can sharpen both sides of the blade, or, alternatively only sharpen one side dependent on the type of knife that requires sharpening. Use the coarse wheel to achieve a sharp finish then complete the process using the fine wheel.

    The Knife Wizard is suitable for a wide variety of smooth and scalloped knives including chef, carving, filleting and Japanese knives.

    For I.O.Shen, the pursuit of an amazing knife sharpener was a personal one and once they found it, they realised they were onto something and brought the Electric Knife Wizard to us… it’s become a Lakeland customer favourite in the years since then so, when they came to us with this incredible knife range, we knew they would be high-calibre, premium pieces.

    Developed after a visit to the knife sharpener factory in a secret location somewhere in the Far East, the team were offered some Japanese-style knives to try – they were very crude with basic handles but the blades were exceptionally sharp, so I.O.Shen set about developing them.

    I.O.Shen believe good cooks deserve proper knives that perform brilliantly, so they improved the handles, brought them back to the UK and gave them to butchers, caterers and chefs for testing to see if the range would be up to scratch for commercial use. The response was incredible! Every one of the testers wanted to buy the samples immediately and more for their friends and colleagues – no-one had ever worked with such a reliably sharp blade before. In fact, certain well-respected professional chef blogs now say that I.O.Shen knives are better than most of the really famous German-style brands.

    Long-lasting Sharpness

    The secret is in the metal. It might seem obvious that a super-sharp edge is best made from a really hard metal, but super-hard metals are brittle and break easily. I.O.Shen have found a way to create a Triplex sandwich of super-hard steel between layers of a softer stainless steel that protect the core while allowing the Japanese-style 15°cutting edge to be sharpened to a keenness that lasts far longer than most.

    Full Tang Handles

    The handles have gone onto become things of beauty. Loosely based on the initials I.O.S, the oriental design that you see is an integral part of the Tai Tang – the pattern is created as one piece with the knife blade and the handle is painstakingly hand-finished with care once the heat-resistant ebonite handle has been moulded around the steel.

    So, I.O.Shen have achieved a minor miracle… creating beautiful-looking knives that are perfectly weighted and balanced, with long-lasting blades that rarely need sharpening because they maintain their edge so well.

    Award Winning

    Recognised for their perfection by the Excellence in Housewares Awards, I.O.Shen knives are perfect for professional chefs and home cooks who’d like top-of-the-range, professional-quality knives for their own kitchen. There’s a knife in their range to suit any task as well as a choice of storage options and sharpeners.

    "A great knife sharpener"

    This is a really good sharpener... expensive but you get what you pay for! Having previously bought and returned a cheapish electric sharpener from another retailer which was useless and then tried a diamond steel which made my knives really blunt I decided to pay the extra and buy this KE198 knife wizard. So far it is brilliant and my blunt knives are now super sharp. Would thoroughly recommend this product.

    I.O.Shen Electric Knife Wizard



    I've tried all sorts of knife sharpeners over the years, and have always been disappointed. Finally, one that actually works. Expensive, but worth it.

    A note from the team

    Thank you for placing your review. I'm delighted this knife sharpener works so well for you.

    "Fantastic Yet another Lakeland First"

    I too have spent many ££'s over the years on knife sharpeners, however, I saw the Electric Knife Wizard about 8 years ago in my local Lakeland Store and felt I couldn't justify the outlay of £60 plus at the time. A few days ago; I decided to go ahead, I am so pleased I did, sharpening my set of Kitchen Devils and WOW are they "Devils" needless to say; "Care" needs to be taken now they are all Perfectly Sharp..! 10/10 Lakeland for the Electric Knife Wizard. Sooo glad now, I made the purchase with you Lakeland.Lakeland is # 1 every time in my Kitchen..!
