How to sharpen your Wusthof Knives

Important:

The honing or sharpening steel should always be longer than the blades of the knives.

There are two methods of using the honing / sharpening steel.

1. Free-hand

  • Hold the steel in one hand and the knife in the other hand.
  • The knife should be above the steel.
  • Tilt the knife so that there is a 20° angle between the blade and the honing / sharpening steel.
  • Pull the blade in semi-circular movement over the steel, making sure you use the entire length of the steel: The base of the blade glides in an arch down to the tip of the blade.
  • Use light pressure on the blade.
  • Now put the knife underneath the steel, again at an angle of 20°.
  • Pull the blade in the same way across the steel.
  • Repeat this process six to eight times on each side.
