HOW TO SHARPEN KNIVES USING WATER WHETSTONE
This kit has been specially developed for use with professional quality kitchen knives.
2 COMBINATION DELUXE WATER WHETSTONES – INTRODUCTION
Whetstone size:- 210mm x 70mm x 20mm.
NO. 471 Rough-Beige - 220 Grit & MEDIUM - Blue - 1000 Grit.
ROUGH - Beige - 220 Grit. - The Rough finish whetstone should be used when blades are completely blunt, or blades are chipped, damaged.
MEDIUM - Blue 1000 Grit. - The Medium finish whetstone is the main stone for sharpening knives, which have become blunt.
Before you use the whetstone, please check to see that its surface is completely flat. If it is not, you must flatten it by rubbing it against a fine concrete surface.
Once the whetstone is flat, soak it in water for 10 - 15 minutes until the air bubbles rising up from the stone disappear. During shapening always kep a small amount of water on the stone, also, leave the powder residue from the stone, on the stone whilst sharpening.
When sharpening with a water whetstone, it is important to maintain the same angle between the knife blade and the stone. We have specially prepared our Guide Rails for this purpose.
No.462 2PCS. DELUXE GUIDE RAILS – INTRODUCTION
Small Guide Rail:- Suitable for blade length up to 6"
Large Guide Rail:- Suitable for blade length over 6"
Quality knives should be kept sharp and in good condition for long life, ease of use and safety. We recommend that they are sharpened regularly on a whetstone before they become dull to preserve the original sharpness.
Extensive research has shown that the optimum blade edge angle for most cutting tasks is between 10 - 15 degrees, Using our Guide Rails will help you to achieve this sharpening angle and get the best performance from your knives.
The Guide Rails are lined with plastic to minimize any scratching on the knives during their use. Any time you remove one from your knife, rinse and clean thoroughly to remove any particles of grit remaining inside the Guide Rails which can scratch the knife when the Guide Rail is next used. Slide the Guide Rail onto and along the top of the blade as shown:-
For knives ground on both sides, we recommend sharpening the right side of the blade first until you feel a burr on the left side. Then change hands and sharpen the left-side of the blade until you feel a burr on the right side. Repeat this alternating from the right side to the left side 4 of 5 times until you have removed the burr from both sides.
knives with blades ground on ONE SIDE ONLY should be sharpened with the angle of the edge meeting thewhetstone ato the same angle. They must NOT be sharpend using a steel.
After sharpening, knives should be washed in mild soapy warm water and then thoroughly dried.
