Q: How to sharpen the steel knives?
A: There are several ways to sharpen knives, you can use a whetstone, honing sharpening steel and knife sharpeners are also available in the market.
Q: How to use honing tool?
A: Honing helps keep a knife blade's existing edge straight and sharp. You'll need a knife and a honing steel. Position them comfortably. Touch the heel of your knife to the top of the steel at a 25-30 degree angle and apply a little bit of pressure.
Slide the knife down the steel with a left to right motion. The idea is to touch the entire edge of the blade in every pass. Repeat on the other side, about four or five passes. Tip: Hone each side the same number of times.
Q: How to Use a Whetstone?
A: Whetstones generally have two sides: coarse and fine grit. The coarse side works to pre-sharpen by grinding off the rough edge and any burrs. The fine grit side finishes off the work by working that dull blade into a super sharp edge.
You need some basic things to complete the process. You need a whetstone, a knife, stone base or towel, paper, water and cloth to clean the blade.
You must know how long to soak whetstone. 5 to 10 minutes is enough to soak it properly. If your knife is highly dull, then start sharpening with the coarse side otherwise finer side.
Firmly hold your knife with first hand (tilted 25-30 degree) and apply suitable pressure by the off-hand. Then, draw the blade along the stone from tip to handle until sharpened nicely. Repeat the actions several times.
Q: How safe is handling of this knife?
A: Handle and bolster have been designed to provide a secure grip from which the hand cannot slip. An ergonomically designed handle and the right weight permit safe, tireless use.
Q: Does it corrode or rust like other steel?
A: It is rust-resistant. The more finely the surface of the blade is ground or polished, the more resistant to rust it will be, the blade virtually loses its tendency to rust and corrode if not kept clean and dry after usage.
Q: Is it safe and hygienic?
A: All these accessories meet US FDA standards which are completely safe and hygienic to use. Absolutely amazing when it comes to corrosion resistance and hygiene.
Q: Is it easy to clean the knife?
A: Use detergent/liquid soap and soft sponge or dishcloth to clean the blade on both sides and wipe away from you so you're never wiping in a way that could cut you. You can also lay the knife flat on the countertop and wipe each side individually if you're worried about cutting yourself.
