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!

    1 out of 1 found this review helpful

    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.

    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!

    I cannot believe this thing is so cheap. It's big enough to last a long time and does what it should. It's nice to sharpen knives this way, does a better job in my opinion.

    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.

    from Place to be Bistro Posted on

    This is the perfect stone for getting out big chips in my knives and taking plenty of metal quickly. The size is perfect for making sharpening a quick and easy task.

    This is a great sharpening stone at a great price. Prior to this, we used a budget grade diamond sharpening stone which left our blades looking rough and removed far too much material when we used it. Switching to this wet stone system has been a long time coming. This sharpener is quite large which gives you plenty of surface area to work with and, once you get he hang of it, leaves knives extremely sharp without removing too much material.

    from Home Use Posted on

    cant beat the price, it worked well to sharpen. Definitely need some practice to get the right angle down, but it definitely shreds the side to give a nice new edge
