For Sharpening Serrations:
Step 1 - Grip the sharpener firmly by the Guide Guard on one end using your dominant hand.
Step 2 - Holding the knife firmly with the other hand (with the edge facing away from you!) bring the corner of the sharpener to the serration.
Step 3 - While maintaining a consistent angle and with even pressure, gently push, while using a rolling motion to sweep the sharpener’s corner from one side of the serration or scallop to the other. A single stroke will remove any burrs on the reverse side of your blade.
For Sharpening a Plain Edge:
Step 1 - Place the thumb on one Guide Guard and the tip of the second or third finger of the same hand on the other guide guard.
Step 2 - Place the blade’s edge against the flat side of the sharpener. While maintaining a consistent angle and with even pressure gently push the entire edge across the sharpener in a single stroke, much like attempting to slice a thin layer off the side.
Step 3 - Stroke 3-5 times and repeat this on the reverse side of the blade.
Step 4 - Continue this process until the blade is sharp.
When the alumina ceramic sharpening rod becomes dark with metal particles from the sharpening process, use the Lansky® EraserBlock® or household cleanser. The alumina ceramic sharpening rod will never wear out.
