Sharpening High-Class Knives

Sharpening High-Class Knives
You will learn how to perfectly sharpen your knives on waterstones while preserving the blade....
We recommend sharpening high quality cutting steels by hand with waterstones, as this method has several advantages: It results in ultimate sharpness, it is gentle to the steel, you can do it anywhere, quickly, and at a low cost.
You will learn how to perfectly sharpen your knives on waterstones while preserving the blade. The course will also feature an introduction to specially developed knife sharpening systems such as the Sorby ProEdge or the Magna-Tec Delta-S, and you will be given the opportunity to test them yourself. You will acquire background knowledge on steel and sharpness. Demanding exercises under professional guidance will help you achieve perfect results.
  • Bitte eigene Messer mitbringen!
