Yes it will, even with the Sharpmaker.

I now do my sharpening on a Spyderco Ceramic Bench Stone in medium grit, and occasionally I finish off with the Spyderco ProFile. These require freehand sharpening knowhow. I have an old Sharpmaker that never sees any use anymore. The other two aforementioned systems are more versatile.

Will either of these systems work on large, kitchen knives?

The Chef'sChoice 120 sharpens even my biggest kitchen knives to a shaving edge. When I was stationed in Germany one of the things I purchased and brought home was a nice set of German kitchen knives. the Chef'sChoice keeps them like brand new. It will also sharpen a little pocket knife or big ol Buck hunter with the same ease.

I like the Accu-Sharp for keeping knives sharp. Simple, east to use, and inexpensive. www.accusharp.com

Oops, sorry ridurall, hadn't seen your post about the Chef's Choice, I thought the Lansky and Spyderco were the only ones discussed. I'll look into that one, too. Thank you.

Hi Steve, I have one suggestion for you. I have the Sharpmaker and I like it a lot. For quite a while I used it and was kind of disappointed as I could not get the edge I desired. I thought that I was holding the blade straight up and down, but then I put a mirror behind the sharpmaker so that I could really see how I was holding the blade. I was not holding it straight up and down. This fixed a lot and the edge is coming along very nicely!!
