The Wusthof 2-Stage Universal Knife Sharpener shall keep your Wusthof and other knives razor-sharp. This manual sharpener features two-stage sharpening for Western-styled knives and is set at 28 degrees, or 14 degrees per side. The first stages put on a quick edge with carbide blades, while the second provides a fine, polished edge with ceramic rods.
The Wusthof Bar Board is perfect for small cutting tasks such as cutting citrus or preparing garnishes. Use it to present and cut cheese, fruits, and vegetables at the table. It is also handy for protecting your counter when using various small tools.
The safe and easy to use 2-Stage Sharpener by Wusthof requires nothing but a few easy strokes to keep all your knives sharp. Stage one, the V-shaped cutting head with crossed carbide blades (coarse) quickly sharpens dull knives. Stage two, the ceramic side (fine), provides a polished, razor sharp finish to the blade.
The 2-Stage Sharpener has been designed with pairs of carbide and ceramic notches, angled for standard knife blades.
To use, place the sharpener on a flat work surface, holding the sharpener with one hand and the knife handle with the other. Insert the knife blade fully into the notch (carbide for dull blades, ceramic for reasonably sharp blades) at a 90-degree angle to the sharpener (straight up and down). Apply moderate downward pressure on the blade while pulling the knife toward you. Repeat this action as necessary, always pulling the blade from heel to tip (never back and forth) through the notch.
After use, always clean your sharpener with a damp cloth or mild brush, then wipe dry. Do not rinse with water.
While the 2-Stage Sharpener is suited to serrated and scalloped edges, use only the ceramic (fine) stage for these blades; the carbide stage will damage serrated blades.
