How to Sharpen Your Knives

How to Sharpen Your Knives

Follow these quick and easy steps to properly sharpen your knives. Place a damp towel on a cutting board to keep the stone in place. Then lubricate the stone with oil or water. Before you begin, you’ll need to find the optimal 22.5 degree sharpening angle. To do this, hold the knife at a 90 degree angle. Then, half the angle to 45 degrees, and then half it again to 22.5 degrees. Next, pull the knife heel to toe, following the proper angle about 5 to 10 times. Then flip the knife and repeat. This time push the knife toe to heel about 5 to 10 times, being sure to maintain the angle. Then flip the knife and repeat. To use a sharpening steel, start again with a damp towel on a cutting board to keep the steel in place. Then find your 22.5 degree angle. Pull the knife heel to toe, alternating sides around 5 to 10 times. Wipe down the blade with a damp towel, and you’ll have a sharp knife ready to tackle all of your daily prep work!

    I'd like to address 2 common complaints in reviews about this Sharpening Stone 1. Its a rough grit stone. That is correct, it is a 120 and 240 Combo stone. This is not for daily/weekly/monthly use, but for knives who need some serious work as it will remove a lot of metal. 2. Chipping or Broken stone - This is not really the fault of the product but due to shipping conditions. Webstaurantstore staff are very quick to resolve these types of issues and they are great for reaching out to customers post review. The price is really good for a stone. I don't think I've ever seen it priced so low anywhere else. The company that makes it is Update International. They make commercial products that are fairly decent to outstanding. My only gripe, is that if it were not for the description there is no way of knowing besides feel (they both feel the same to me) what the grit is. To combat this, I used a pencil to write the grit on the sides of the stone. Pencil markings will stay on for a long time when submerged in water. An alternative is using a lacquer or similar paint to write the grit. Read Less Read More
    This is a great sharpening stone. It is a great value for its quality and works as expected. It is course enough to put a new edge on a knife, and fine enough to just do regular maintenance sharpening.
    I take out this stone when I need to do some repair or heavy duty sharpening. Otherwise i just stick to my sharpening rod. This has two sides which is good for removing more metal if needed.

    Decent sharpening stone. It has two sides and is great for starting the process on a dull blade. need to pair with a fine stone as well for finishing edge.
    I have been sharpening my knives on this 12 inch stone for about a year and it still works great! Can't beat the price either!
    We use this sharpening stone when our knives have had some use and need to cut like they're brand new. Can't argue with that price!

    This stone does a pretty good job at sharpening my kitchen knives. It's a little too rough for my expensive knives, but for cheap knives it's great.
    This stone is well made and an effective way to sharpen your knives. It is a little difficult to use if you are a beginner. It will some take some practice for it to be an effective tool.

    This is a very nice basic 12" Sharpening Stone. Great for residential uses. It is not the fanciest, but you get more than what you pay for.
    I wasn't expecting too much from this sharpening stone since it's so cheap, but it's fine as a basic sharpening stone. Will help keep your knives sharp if you don't have any other sharpening stones.
    It is high quality and serves me well. It is very convenient and easy to use. I am pleased that I bought it. It definitely lasts for a long time!
