Sharpeners are not for use on scalloped or serrated edges. For optimum performance, knives should be sharpened after every couple of uses. Use a scouring powder after use to clean and remove metal particles from your sharpening steel. After cleaning the steel, rinse with water, dry it thoroughly, and store in a dry place.
- Hold sharpening steel point down on a flat, stable surface such as a tale or cutting board.
- Angle knife blade approximately 15 degrees from the sharpening steel.
- Imagine the knife blade is at approximately 11 o'clock and 1 o'clock.
- Pull the knife down and across the sharpening steel in a slight arc, pulling the knife handle toward you. Repeat on the other side of the steel.
- Repeat these steps 8 to 9 times, alternating the right and left side of the cutting edge.
