Set of 4 Angle Guides works with any sharpening steel or honing rod. Get the right angle every time.
Many people find that using a sharpening steel or honing rod isn't quite as easy as it looks. Finding the right angle to hold the knife against the steel can be difficult. The Set of Angle Guides for Sharpening Steels solves that problem with four guides in commonly used angles.
Easy to Use
Choose the guide that matches the bevel angle of your knife. The set includes 14, 16, 18 and 20 degree guides. If your knife is sharpened to an angle other than one of these, choose the next higher angle guide.
Fit the Angle Guide over your steel and slide it up to the handle.
Rest your knife against the guide. This gives you the proper starting position. Then, using a smooth motion with light pressure, slide your knife the length of the steel while pulling the knife from the heel to the tip of the blade. Do several strokes on both sides of the blade.
Q. Does the Angle Guide move with the knife?
A. No. The angle guide stays in place near the handle of the steel or rod. The guide provides a reference for the proper starting position of your knife.
