How To: Sharpen a kitchen knife

Sharpen a kitchen knife

Wondering how to sharpen a kitchen knife?

You need a sharpening stone having a course side and a fine side and some sharpening oil. You also need another stone which is finer than the first one. Keep the blade of the knife on the stone at an angle of 45 degree. Then keep at an angle of 22.5 degree (Half of the previous one). This is the best position for sharpening a knife. Start by pulling the tail of the blade in up and down (to and fro) motion. The same number of strokes should be given on both sides of the knife. Then the same way sharpen the knife on the finer stone and put some oil on the stone to avoid friction. Check the edge of the knife with your finger so that you can understand the sharpness.
