Designed to maintain all plain edge kitchen knives. This sharpener features an advanced ceramic wheel, and a solid plastic handle with weighted non-slip base to give you the quickest and easiest way to sharpen your kitchen knives. Use regularly to hone the blade edge back into shape. The clear plastic guard will protect the replaceable ceramic wheel, which is positioned at the optimum sharpening angle for the Japanese-style 15° blade edge of the Signature range of kitchen knives.
Whilst specifically designed for use with the Signature range of kitchen knives, this hand-held knife sharpener can also be used to maintain and sharpen other plain edge kitchen knives. Please note that serrated edge blades should not be sharpened with this product.
Using our Hand-Held Knife Sharpener
Water Sharpening (best)
1. Remove the clear guide, fill the recess under the
ceramic wheel with water and replace guide.
2. Hold sharpener firmly on a flat surface.
3. Align your blade within the guide, slide the blade
back and forth through the ceramic wheel 10 - 20
times from heel to tip (applying light pressure) until
desired sharpness has been achieved.
4. Rinse and dry your knife thoroughly.
5. Sharpen twice a month (or to suit) to maintain
the desired edge sharpness.
Dry Sharpening (quick) - Follow steps 2 - 5, as above.
We recommend that after 12-24 months, depending on frequency of use, you change the ceramic sharpening wheel in order to maintain your knife’s cutting edge to a high standard.
Replacement wheels are available as a set of two.
