How to Sharpen a Knife Using a Sharpening Steel

  • Hold the steel firmly in your hand with the guard positioned to stop the blade should it slip.
  • Hold the knife in your other hand and place on top part of steel.
  • Raise back of blade one-eighth inch.
  • Moving the blade only, draw it across the steel in an arching curve, pivoted at your wrist. The blade tip should leave the steel about two-thirds of the way down.
  • Repeat the same action with the blade on the bottom side of the steel. Always maintain the same pressure and angle on both sides of the steel.
  • Repeat five or six times.
