Knife Sharpeners

  • The knife guide is designed to precisely sharpen both sides of the blade edge.
  • Running your knife through the guides aligns the blade with the sharpening grinders that sharpen it.
  • Grinders should be replaced if they seem ineffective which only occurs occasionally.
  • Knife steels are used to hone and clean knives. After sharpening a blade, pass it across the steel three or four times in order to remove microscopic metal shavings.
  • Shine an overhead light across the edge - the areas you see reflecting light are dull and need sharpening.
