Can never seem to get my victorinox sharp enough

Sun Jul 15, 2012 4:57 pm

I have 2 sharpening tools.

One is this:

Which is damaging my knives and taking out the metal of them.

Im not sure how hard i should be pressing down?

But i always use quite a lot of force.

Then this:

Which i dont think is diamond.

I'm not quite sure what i should be using in order to keep my knives sharp which doesnt damage them?

Can anyone recommend what i should use?

I mainly collect victorinox... all these sharpeners are doing is damaging the knives.

Do i need a steel which has diamonds in or an electric sharpener?

Also how hard do i press when i sharpen and what angle do i sharpen at?

Thanks guys.

Mart.

Have a relatively coarse stone (e.g. Chosera 400) and a J1000-ceramic rod for deburring and maintenance. Apply a sharpening angle of some 15 degree per side.

Hi there

I am located in Brisbane, Australia (Queensland)

Id hope these things would get through customs because Australia tend to be a little over the top with things entering their precious country....

You will get better results if you use a sharpening stone and learn how to sharpen a knife. You should be able to pick up a cheap combination stone in Australia and learn on that. I have a bunch of videos on the site that will get you started. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/knshforne1.html
