Norma...It is the 3rd one down on the list...the larger blade...and again, make sure it is stainless, not carbon steel...Have a Super Day, RJ

Randy,

I also have a chinese Chef Knife, which I love, but it's carbon steel.  Why the push for stainless?

I've got a crazy idea.
What about replacing the junky stainless wheel with a blade from this....

Its crazy, but I might give it a shot for humors sake. I've used these power fabric cutters before and they sing through
an inch of fabric.

You can purchase just the replacement blade here...

The blade is 4 inch and so is the blade on my pizza cutter. I'll let everyone know.

michelevit,

Your idea doesn’t sound crazy to me.  Let us all know how the replacement blade works out on your pizza cutter.  You never know until you try something if it will work.

A fine, flat metal file will do the job just fine. Lay cutter flat hanging over the edge of a counter with the cutter on a towel for stability. Holding hand use finger to still the wheel and use file to whip the blade into shape. Do a little on both side till nice and sharp.  If you have an accusharp finish with that. The day after I did mine I reached in the drawer for it and then drove myself to the local ER for 4 stitches!!!

I also now have a diamond tip file (cheap) I use to sharpen pizza cutters and my knives.  It does take a little work, but it does sharpen them.
