How to Sharpen Your Knives

Keep your knives sharp and performing at a high level with regular sharpening and maintenance! Watch this video to learn the proper techniques to sharpening with a stone, and how regular maintenance will extend the life of 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!
