The sharpener has both medium and fine grade diamond abrasives to bring the bluntest of knives back to life. To use, put on a firm, flat surface such as a work top and pull your knife through. Depending on how blunt the knife is around 25 strokes with the medium grade followed by 5 strokes on the fine is generally sufficient.
Good Cook Shop handy Hints:
All knives (except serrated) will need sharpening, the frequency really depends on how often they are used and what they are used to cut. Regular light sharpening will keep the blade in tip top condition. The ultimate test is a ripe tomato, only a sharp knife will slice through the skin effortlessly.
Though you can use a sawing action with this sharpener, we recommend that you only pull towards you, this avoids a tendency to miss the very tip of the knife and end up with an uneven edge
