Knife Sharpening Instructions:
1. Place sharpener on a flat, sturdy surface. Hold the sharpener with one hand and your knife with the other. CAUTION: Keep fingers behind the finger guard or injury could occur.
2. Select the appropriate sharpening slot to use.
COARSE – start here if your knife blade is extremely dull or damaged. Quickly puts a new, sharp cutting edge on your blade. Normally, it takes 5 or 6 strokes to set an edge on your blade, but knives made of harder steels could take additional strokes.
FINE – use this slot for smoothing and finishing the cutting edge after setting it in the COARSE slot, or start here if your knife blade is already sharp but needs a quick touch up. Normally, it takes 8 to 10 strokes to finish or maintain the edge, but knives made of harder steels could take additional strokes.
NOTE: A reasonably sharp blade may only require light honing in the FINE slot. The COARSE slot is intended for very dull or damaged edges that require a new sharp edge to be put on the blade.
3. Insert knife blade fully into the sharpening slot and tilt the tip of the blade slightly downward.
4. Apply moderate downward pressure on the blade while pulling the knife blade through the sharpening slot from heel to tip. Make sure you sharpen the cutting edge all the way out to the tip of the blade.
5. Repeat this action until blade is sharp, always pulling the blade through the sharpening slot from heel to tip (never back and forth).
Hook Sharpening Instructions:
1. Select the appropriate sharpening groove to use based on the size of your hook.
2. Place the hook in the groove as shown and rub the point of the hook back and forth until sharp.
Clean your sharpener with a damp cloth and mild brush. DO NOT RINSE WITH WATER.
