Step 1 – Begin by opening the plastic handles.
Step 2 – To sharpen a knife, hold the sharpener handles firmly in one hand and the knife in the other.
Step 3 – Place the end of the sharpener on a stable surface. Draw the knife edge down the paddle at the proper angle, as if you were attempting to slice a thin layer off the top of the paddle. Repeat this motion 3 – 4 times using light to moderate pressure. Maintain a consistent angle for the best results.
Step 4 – Switch to the other side of the blade’s edge and repeat the sharpening process to finish the edge.
Note: Do not apply oil to Lansky Diamond surface: clean diamond hones instead with water and wipe shavings away with a lint-free rag. Diamond hones should be completely dry before next usage.
Be Smart, Be Safe and Stay an Edge Above the Rest!
CAUTION: Knife sharpening is an inherently dangerous activity. Used properly this sharpener cannot hurt you but a carelessly handled blade or pointed object can.
