The easiest way to sharpen knives and to keep them sharp. This Wusthof 2-stage pull-through, V-shaped Knife Sharpener with tungsten and ceramic steels is particularly suitable for those who do not feel comfortable using Sharpening Steels or Whetstones.
With this Sharpener, the knife is simply drawn through the guiding notches a few times - the notch with tungsten steel is used for coarser sharpening (for blunt blades) while the ceramic notch is for fine sharpening (for coarsely sharpened or moderately-sharp blades) – and results are quickly achieved.
- Two sharpening stages: Coarse (use on dull knives); Fine (use to polish and touch up knives)
- Soft Grip Handle
- Rubberized base for sure grip
How to use:
Place sharpener on a flat work surface. Hold the sharpener with one hand as indicated and the knife handle with the other. Insert knife blade fully into the slot at a 90° angle to the sharpener. Apply moderate downward pressure on the blade while pulling the knife toward you through the appropriate notch. Repeat this action, always pulling the blade from heel to tip (never back and forth) through either the carbide or the ceramic notch.
The first stage carbide (coarse) sharpens dull edges. The second stage ceramic (fine) provides a polished, razor sharp edge. A reasonably sharp knife may only require this light honing.
Care: Always clean your sharpener after use. Clean with a damp cloth or mild brush, wipe dry. Do not rinse with water.
Carbide/Coarse: Quickly Sets Edge.
Ceramic/Fine: Finishes Edge.
