Correctly sharpening knives ensures longer cutting pleasure. At KookGigant we offer various sharpening stones. In this blog we would like to explain how to use it correctly.
Place the sharpening stone in a layer of water and let it soak for between 10 and 15 minutes.
Place the sharpening stone with the coarse grain side up.
Hold the blade at an angle of about 10-15 degrees and move the blade back and forth across the sharpening stone. Do not put too much pressure on this. Repeat this until the desired sharpness is achieved.
Turn the sharpening stone over so that the fine grain size is facing up.
Move the blade back and forth over the sharpening stone to polish the blade nicely.
Clean the knife well, so that all sharpening residues disappear from the knife. Let the knife dry thoroughly before storing it to maintain its quality.
PS The sharpening stones can be found here in the webshop!
