Sharpenyour Fine Knives and your Coarse Knives with the Wusthof 2 Stage Knife Sharpener. The standard sharpener uses carbide blades set at 28° or 14° per side to sharpener your standard kitchen knives. Stage 2 uses ceramic rods to hone a fine edge on your blade.
Simply place the gadget on a flat work surface and hold the E-Z grip handle with one hand and the knife handle with the other. Insert the knife blade fully into the slot at a 90° angle to the sharpener and pull down and back three or four times to sharpen. After setting the knife's edge with the carbide side, use the unit's ceramic side to nicely finish the edge.
The first stage carbide (coarse) sharpens dull edges. The second stage ceramic (fine) provides a polished, razor sharp edge. A reasonably sharp knife may only require this light honing.
