How to Use a Farberware Knife Sharpener

Tinsmith S.W. Farber forged the roots of the Farberware company in his basement more than 100 years ago. In 1930, Farber created his first small appliance, a Farberware percolater. He followed that invention with a coffee robot, which kept coffee warm for hours. Farberware Licensing Co. continues in his tradition by producing and licensing an extensive line of home appliances, giftware and accessories. Two knife sharpeners carry the Farberware name as of 2010: a four-knife sharpener with ceramic rods; and a two-head, fine-edge sharpener with diamond-coated steel rods.
