    Description

    Smith's is proud to offer the ultimate in sharpening steel technology with the "World's First" interrupted surface, diamond coated, oval sharpening steel. Smith's 10" Diamond Sharpening Steel features a unique sharpening surface with a overlapping oval hole design, which is coated with multiple layers of micron-sized monocrystalline diamonds. This innovation helps speed the sharpening process by collecting and holding the metal filings which ordinarily build up during the sharpening process. It comes with a soft grip rubber handle and oversized hand guard for comfort and safety. Unlike conventional steels, which only realign your cutting edge, the Smith's 10" Diamond Sharpening Steel hones and realigns your edge at the same time.

    Instructions

    Consistency of the sharpening angle to the cutting surface of the Diamond Sharpening Steel is essential in order to achieve the sharpest edge possible. We recommend that you use an approximate 23 degree sharpening angle for best results.

    1. Caution: If the Diamond Sharpening Steel touches any part of your knife other than the cutting edge, scratching could occur.
    2. Only sharpen on the oval surface, not the edges of the steel.
    3. Hold handle of sharpener in one hand and knife in other. Place the plastic tip that is on the end of sharpener on a solid surface. Apply sufficient downward pressure on th sharpener so it will not slip during the sharpening process.
    4. Place heel of your knife at the top of sharpening rod at preferred angle.
    5. With consistent downward pressure on the cutting edge, push the knife down the rod while pulling the knife towards you from the hell of the blade to the tip of the blade.
    6. Repeat step 4 on other side of knife blade.
    7. Repeat Steps 4 & 5 until knife is sharp.
    8. Remember always do the equal number of strokes on each side to ensure sharpest edge possible.

    Care:

    Always clean your sharpener after use. We recommend that you use soapy water with a mild nonabrasive brush, never use a steel brush. After cleaning always dry off your sharpener before storing.

    I am an avid hunter and outdoorsman and I have never had a sharpener that works better and gives a razor edge better than this one.all my previous sharpeners are going in the garbage. I would recommend this sharpener to anyone.

    I am 64 years old & want to know where this has been all my life.

    There are no sharpeners that I haven't bought. Now my knives are like razors with almost no effort or time. The three stage electric ones do a fine job but with a large time investment. I keep this on my counter so every time I use a knife I swipe it for a couple of seconds. My knives have never been better.

    A co-worker brought the 10" 3001 sharpener in last week. My knife had been used to scrape coating off of steel gas pipe. I had made about 5 swipes on each side of the blade it was ready to shave.I am headed to Wal-Mart or the local hardware store to get one.
