Arkansas Pocket Stone Instructions
Step 1 - Place the thumb on one end of the stone and the tip of the second or third finger of the same hand on the other end of the stone.
Step 2 - Apply a few drops of Nathan's Honing Oil to the stones surface
Step 3 - 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 4 - Stroke 3-5 times and repeat this on the reverse side of the blade.
Step 5 - Continue this process until the blade is sharp.
Step 6 - Use hollow line to sharpen fish hooks or other pointed objects
Be Smart, Be Safe and Stay an Edge Above the Rest!
CAUTION: Knife sharpening is an inherently dangerous activity. Used properly this sharpening stone cannot hurt you but a carelessly handled blade or pointed object can.
