Quick Edge Sharpening Instructions
Step 1 - Grip the sharpener with your fingers inside the finger guard and your thumb resting against the thumb guard as shown.
Step 2 - Place knife on a flat, solid surface cutting edge up. Let about 1/2? of the blade extend beyond the edge of the surface. Hold the knife steady with one hand as you begin to sharpen with the other.
Step 3 - Place the ?V? in the head of the Quick Edge Sharpener over the blade of your knife where it joins the handle. Holding the sharpener at roughly 90º to the blade (too great an angle as shown in 3a will result in poor sharpening performance), draw the sharpener toward the tip of the knife. The tungsten carbide sharpener will gradually remove metal from the blade, making it sharp. Repeat 3 to 4 times applying no more than light pressure to produce a razor-sharp edge.
Step 4 - Clean knife blade thoroughly.
Note: The tungsten carbide sharpening inserts are reversible and replaceable.
CAUTION: Knife sharpening is an inherently dangerous activity. Used properly this sharpener cannot hurt you but a carelessly handled blade or pointed object can.
