Use the Cutco Sharpener

1:13 View Transcript

For straight-edge knives only.

Make sure the sharpener is on a sturdy flat surface. Place the heel of the knife blade in the center of the sharpening inserts, so the cutting edge is resting at the bottom of the V shaped slot, keeping the knife perpendicular to the top of the sharpener, slightly angle the tip of the knife down. Then applying light pressure, pull the blade slowly toward you, following the contour of the blade to sharpen all the way out to the tip. Repeat this motion for 5 to 7 strokes, then using very light pressure repeat the action for 2 additional strokes to further refine the edge.

After sharpening carefully hand wash the knife, use a damp towel to clean the fillings from the sharpener and the work surface.
