Sharpening Tips

Straightening the Edge by Steeling

Before steeling: Rolled edge

After steeling: Straightened edge

Sharpening Tips

1. Hold the knife and steel firmly, the more accurate you are the better the sharpen.

Hold firmly

2. Place the knife onto the steel at a set angle; keep this consistent as you run your knife down the steel.

Set angle

3. Use smooth downward strokes on the steel from heal to tip of the blade.

Repeat while maintaining your angles on both sides. If your knife does not respond, increase your angles slightly until your edge responds, stoning may be required.

Repeat sharpening at the same angle
