Knife Sharpening. . . Bevel Knives


Knife sharpening can be a tricky business, but sharpening bevel knives can actually be easier than double hollow ground knives. The thing is, you have to keep the angles constant. Whatever you do, don't change the angles by lifting up the knife.

  • First, start with the larger flat part of the knife flat on the stone "rubbing" back and forth until you feel a small burr on the bevel side of the knife.

  • Then turn the knife over and "rub" back and forth until the knife is sharp.


That's about it. Not too difficult. Remember not to change the angles that are already built into the knife.
