    KNIFE SHARPENING

    Every time you use one of your kitchen knives, you dull the blade just a little bit. While you can send the blades out for sharpening, using a knife sharpening kit at home is a nice alternative. Find out more about our products and how you can use them.

    TYPES OF KNIFE SHARPENERS

    Knife sharpening tools include stones like whetstones as well as rods. They all have some benefits and work on professional and home kitchen knives.

    WHETSTONE

    Whetstones are stones that come in different grits to help you add a fine or coarse edge to your blade. You always use them with water to prevent damage to the knife.

    SHARPENING & HONING RODS

    Honing rods often come in knife sets and give you an easy way to keep your knives sharp. You might hear some people call it a knife-sharpening steel because it uses durable steel.

    Sharpening Rods, unlike honing rods, are designed for refining the edge of the blade. They effectively remove small nicks and dullness, creating a keen edge.

    THREE-STAGE KNIFE SHARPENER

    A three-stage knife sharpener functions similarly to a honing rod but has three indents along the side. You run your knife through each indent to get your desired sharp edge.

    HOW TO USE A KNIFE SHARPENER

    The way you use a knife sharpener depends on the type you buy. With knife sharpening stones, you wet the stone with water and hold the blade at an angle and then run the blade across the stone's surface. A knife sharpening steel requires that you run the blade along the edge of the rod. A three-stage model is the easiest because you just run the knife through the desired slot for fine or coarse grinding.
