1. Sharpen with coarse stone until you reach apex along ALL LENGTH of the knife. It is tempting to jump to a higher grit when knife seems sharp in some places. If the edge is beaten up and has dents, you need to sharpen it 3 times longer. Make sure no dents left. Make sure you have a burr along all of the length. If you miss this point, all further sharpening will be useless.
2. Learn how to remove the burr. Google it or lookup on the Wedgek website. The burr is a real thing. Burr is a must to create, and it is a must to remove.
3. Don't press hard on the knife when you sharpen it on a diamond stone. Don't press hard when honing.
4. I never had any success with honing before. I always thought that sharpening steel is a gimmick. Not anymore. It really works. I highly recommend honing on a rod with the orange cones. I do it once per week or two because I don't cook every day.
5. Muscle memory is much better than I thought it would be. After a little practice, I can hold the knife very steady. Just practice a bit. You will be fine.
I didn't realize that freehand sharpening could be so enjoyable. The sharpness is incredible and feels very rewarding.
I havent used these just yet, i just got them. Pieces were all there. Two sets of blue wedges angled 10-20. Two sets so you can tie them together to get angles 21-40 if you really want. Ties down to my sharpening stone and just helps me start where i should be. I think its probably gonna help me alot. Its gonna take practice but starting at the right angle every time has got to help.
I havent got a sharpening rod yet but plan to use those orange ones for it when i get one.
The blue angle guides are a good reference , they get strapped to your stone then lay your knife at the fixed angle . Since they are affixed to the stone they don't move with the knife and it's up to you to keep the angle across the stone. There is a learning curve but the work excellent if you know what angle your shooting for with your knife.
The orange cone definitely help to keep you knives in good shape and allows you cut vegetables, fruit, and anything else may ever you need to cut easily. Nobody wants to use excess force while using their knife for daily activities. I was able to feel like a real fruit ninja. Just be careful not to cut yourself in the process.
With a sharpening rod you can take a sharp knife and make it super-sharp. That's the purpose of sharpening rod. If it doesn't work, your knife is too dull and you should be sharpening on a stone. If you understand these basics, the rest is easy.
That's where this lil beauty of a product comes in;
Use the blue angle guides for sharpening dull knives on stones. Use the orange angle guides to *maintain* super sharpness on sharpening rod. There are a wide range of angles for whatever edge shape you want, and can fit most stones with the included elastic; and, well, if you got a bigger block, just get a bigger rubber band.
The edge is sharper than it was from a factory. This set has all angles for any knife in my kitchen: Japanese, Chef, Hunting, EDC and, I think, for any kitchen knife. It is very easy and safe to use.
I enjoy freehand sharpening and these little guides improved my results immediately.
