The Global Knives MinoSharp Ceramic Water Sharpener will help keep your favorite Japanese style knives perfectly sharp. The convenient all in one solution for sharpening your favorite knives, The Global Knives MinoSharp Ceramic Water Sharpener utilizes water to prevent over-heating the knife blade when sharpening. From coarse to fine, its two ceramic wheels will get the job done with a single twist of your hand. The ergonomic handle allows you to keep the sharpener steady, so you can firmly grip the handle of your knife with one hand.
To use, pour water into the compartment of the sharpener and keep it there during sharpening operation. Insert knife blade vertically holding the knife with your forefinger on the back of the knife into groove No. 1 with the white wheel and move the blade back and forth with slight pressure 7 or 8 times, or as necessary. Next, place the knife blade vertically into groove No.2 with the pink wheel and move the blade back and forth with slight pressure 7 or 8 times. It is very important not to apply too much pressure when passing the knife through the sharpener, as doing so may cause damage to the wheels. If undue pressure is applied, the wheels may break or become damaged. When sharpening is complete, please hand wash knife in warm water and carefully dry with a dry towel or other cloth before use.
