Diamond and ceramic grinding wheel
The basis of Xiaomi HuoHou knife grinders is a pair of grinding wheels. Diamond blade takes care of grinding of hard and brittle materials, such as sintered carbide. It has features high roughness, long life and low wear.
The second is ceramic grinding wheel, which has the properties of stability, heat resistance, water resistance and high strength.
Its high accuracy can effectively eliminate knife edge shakes and smooth out the bladewhich makes it perfectly sharp.
The underside of the grinder contains a suction cup, which ensures a strong attachment to the table. This makes grinding very safe and the suction cup effectively prevents accidental injury.
I bought this sander, but I am not satisfied with it. The suction cup, which is supposed to hold it on the base when sharpening the knife, holds it very weakly, so you have to hold it with your hand from above, otherwise the knife cannot be sharpened. The sharpening itself is only symbolic, more like just to smooth the edge, if you want to sharpen it properly, you need to sharpen it in another way, preferably with a disc el. sander, and then smooth on this, so I do not recommend it
