To use this coarse grit Whetstone, first, wipe the surface and apply sufficient water to lubricate. Then hold the knife the way you are holding it when cutting, and place the edge of the knife on the stone in a 20 to 25 degree angle (about half the size of your thumb horizontally, or whatever the manufacturer recommended angle is for the bevel on your blade). Make sure to have a firm grip of the handle with your dominant hand, and the other hand putting pressure near the upward facing edge of the blade. After finding the correct angle, run the knife on the stone in a back and forth motion. Apply pressure only when pulling the knife. Please note, this is a very coarse whetstone, so should be used on the dullest of blades, or to repair chips in your blade.
Please note: Wear gloves when sharpening knives.
