Cold Steel® Knife Sharpener Instructions:
This is the ONLY sharpener that will sharpen the proprietary serrations on Cold Steel® brand knives. The special grooved panel exactly matches the vertical mini serrations.
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.
For Sharpening Mini Serrations:
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 - Line up the mini serrations on your Cold Steel blade with the specialty grove panel on the sharpener.
Step 3 - While maintaining a consistent angle and with even pressure, gently push the mini serrations into the sharpener’s grooves.
Step 4 - Repeat 3-4 times. A single stroke will remove any burrs on the reverse side of your blade.
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.
