The easiest way to sharpen your larder knives quickly and keep them sharp the Sharp’Easy uses the same honing process as a traditional steel, without a necessary training. This means your larder knives are honed on the correct angle every time without fail maximising efficiency and eliminating the risk of damage to the knife edge. It enables you to keep your knives in peak condition 100% of the time. We think the savings you will make in both time and cost of replacing knives make this sharpener a good investment.
N.B.: The cutting edge of a knife is fragile and malleable. During use, it gets worn away or perhaps even damaged
because of contact with bone, chainmail gloves, the table, block or gambrels.
Honing is the action which insures that the cutting edge is kept viable for as long as possible, and is actually done periodically during the course of butchery.
1) Daily maintenance of the cutting edge and removal of the burrs:
Insert the blade into the guide up to the hilt. When the blades comes into contact with the pre-tensioned guide bars, slide the knife from hilt right up to the tip with a gentle and regular stroke, going down inside the guide without reaching the V shaped tongues situated in the bottom.
This movement should be repeated several times at a row.
2) Straightening the cutting edge that has become worn or damaged:
Insert the blade of the knife right to the bottom of the guide, down to the hilt and then slide your knife backward up to the tip of the knife with a smooth stroke whilst applying slight pressure, the V shaped tongues straighten the cutting edge.
This can be repeated several times.
