Grab the knife by the handle and hold it in front of you with the blade pointed away from you. Hold the blade as perpendicular to the floor as you can, while holding the base of the platform with your other hand.
As you press the knife lightly against the rod. Begin a downward motion while simultaneously pulling the blade against the rod toward yourself. Alternate between the two rods and follow the DVD instructions for the best results. It’s that simple. I was able to get an arm balding cut on some of my oldest worn out knives within minutes using this technique.You want to talk about a hair whittling edge.(spliting a hair in two with a touch on the blade.)
If the blade is really dull (doesn’t pull arm hair when you lightly run it over your arm) you might want to order the aggressive diamond rods. (not included) Put the diamond rods into the 40 degree slots and repeat the same motion and sequence we just learned. After the knife is pulling hairs again you can sharpen it with the process mentioned earlier.
