The Japanese Knife Sharpening Guide is designed for kitchen knives. This is the easiest-to-use knife guide we have found. Just clip it to the back of your knife and it provides a guide for sharpening. The part that rides on your stone is made of ceramic for longer wear.

This guide lifts the back of your knife to provide the angle for sharpening. Because it lifts the back a fixed amount, we only recommend it for traditional kitchen cutlery with a blade height of more than 3/4". On pocket knifes or fillet knives, the angle created is too great.

Made in Japan.

Angle Calculator*
Knife Width Angle
1 7/16" 15 Degrees
1 1/4" 17 Degrees
1 1/8" 20 Degrees
7/8" 25 Degrees
3/4" 30 Degrees

* This angle calculator table is based on our research and testing of the SUPER TOGERU Knife Sharpening Guide. Because the back is fixed, the width of your knife determines the sharpening angle. We suggest only using knives between 3/4" and 1 7/16" in width. The width of the knife is measured from the spine to the edge of the knife.

Q. What if my knife isn't recommended for this guide? Do you have another guide to suggest?

A. The DMT Knife Guide is adjustable. We recommend it if your knife width doesn't give you the desired angle using this not adjustable guide.

I recently placed my first order after finding you on the web while looking for grinding wheels. I am a customer for life. Here's why. My first order was a simple white grinding wheel for a "normal joe's shop". When I received the wrong wheel (150 grit instead of the ordered 100 grit) I called and without hesitation or the 3rd degree another wheel was sent off. No questioning of my integrity, intelligence or honor. Simply "I am sorry, we'll send the correct wheel off immediately..." The right thing was done by a neat guy. I was treated like an adult. Unbelievable in this day and age...proper...and priceless. Price, performance, responsiveness and customer service par excel-lance. 6-Stars! All my sharpening orders, albeit small shop orders, will now be with you. Promote you I will.
