How to sharpen your knives with the minoSharp hand sharpener:
1. Fill the grinder with water during the grinding process. The water keeps the ceramic grinding rollers moist and protects the knife blade from overheating. After use, the grinder should always be rinsed with clear water without a cover.
2. To ensure the lasting quality of the grinder, hold it by the handle.
3. Hold the knife with your index finger on the back of the knife and place the blade vertically on the white grinding roller. With light pressure, move the blade back and forth 15 to 20 times. Hard pressure is not necessary.
4. Next, place the blade vertically on the pink sanding roller and use light pressure to move the knife back and forth 15 to 20 times. It is very important not to use too much pressure, otherwise the grinding wheels may be damaged.
5. After sharpening, rinse the knife under hot water and dry with a dry cloth before using the knife. The minoSharp 220-BR consists of two grinding rollers: the white roller is coarse and the pink roller is medium. The fact that the slots are not parallel with the rollers automatically creates the right angle for the perfect sharpening of the blade.
6. The number of movements over the rollers depends on the condition of the knife, but we recommend:
a) for Global Messer 15 - 20 trains per grinding wheel.
b) for other brands of knives, try 20 strokes per sharpening wheel first. If the result is not sharp enough, repeat the process again.
