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!

    Dry stone that does a good job on some of my everyday knives. My high end knives get professionally sharpened, but the rest can be brought to a beautiful edge with this stone quickly and conveniently.
    This is a great sharpening stone to have in your kitchen. I've shopped around and found that this is the best quality sharpening stone at the best price.
    Sharp knifes make a big difference when you process game or your own livestock. We process our own meat birds, goats, pigs, ducks and a few deer every year. Great sharpening stone.
    Very high quality sharpening stone! It does a great job on our knives. We did not want to buy a cheap stone from our local restaurant supply store. This one is awesome.
    Great sharpening stone. Quickly sharpens to great edge. Get several, so one is always available. Lowest price on the web. You can't go wrong with this.
