The Nirey KE-500 is an upgrade to their KE-280 and includes the following features:
Angle Guides for knives with THIN edges (Angle Guide 1) and knives with THICK edges (Angle Guide 2). The knives sharpened by Angle Guide 1 are much better than any knives on the market today!
Belt Covers reduce the possibility of cutting and damaging the belt.
Easy to use and clean Debris Trays.
A switch on the front of the machine prevents liquids or water from flowing inside the machine.
Hand Screw on the upper cover makes it convenient to remove.
Metal Guards on the upper cover prevent the cover from being cut when knives are being sharpened.
Easy-to-replace sharpening belts (in Coarse, Medium, and Fine grit) are available.
The entire knife from the heel to the bolster can be sharpened.
Protecting irons inside of the upper cover and body prevent the plastic body from damage caused by the sparked during sharpening. Sharpening carbon steel knives is also possible.
Uses the same belts as KE-280 and KE-3000
