This versatile 3.5” folding rod sharpener is great for proper knife maintenance, including sharpening of straight-edged blades, some scalloped blades, and even gut hooks. The sharpening rod features a fine diamond grit and it stores in the comfort-grip, non-slip handles.
Step 1 - Begin by opening the plastic handles.
Step 2 - To sharpen a knife, hold the sharpener handles firmly in one hand and the knife in the other.
Step 3 - Place the end of the sharpener on a stable surface at an angle and draw the knife edge down the rod as if you were attempting to slice a thin layer off the rod –repeat this motion 3 – 4 times using light to moderate pressure. Maintain a consistent angle for the best results.
Step 4 - Now switch hands and repeat the process to finish the other side of the blade.
Note: Do not apply oil to Lansky Diamond surface: clean diamond hones instead with water and wipe shavings away with a lint-free rag. Diamond hones should be completely dry before next usage.
