With MakeEdge® you keep your knives sharp, by honing them everytime you use them. Just pull the knife through MakeEdge® 2-3 times every time.
You should NOT add any pressure when pulling your knife through MakeEdge®. The weight of your knife combined with the pulling action will ensure that your knife is perfectly centered when you hone it.
Also we recommend that you do NOT pull your knife back and forth in MakeEdge®. Just one way and that it towards yourself.
NB: If you add pressure on your knife when using MakeEdge® – the 2 ceramic stones may loosen and thus give a wrong angle when honing, with the result that the edge of your knife does not get perfect honing. Also wrong usage may result in scratches along your knife blade.
