This alumina ceramic rod is a super compact pocket sharpener, and perfect for quick sharpening of knives. Featuring a convenient key chain attached to colorful, patented finger guards.
Mini Dog Bone Sharpening Instructions:
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 ceramic rod. While maintaining a consistent angle and with even pressure gently push the entire edge across the rod in a single stroke, much like attempting to slice a thin layer off the rod.
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.
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.
