    Instructions

    1. Loosen the metal screw cap and pull the diamond rod out to the desired length and then securely retighten the metal screw cap so that the rod will not move.

    3. Store rod in handle with tapered end down when finished sharpening.
    4. Clean rod after each use with a dry cloth or dry soft toothbrush.

    Flat Edges:

    1. You can use either the tapered round rod or the half-round rod to sharpen youjr flat edged knifes, but we recommend using the half round rod for best results.
    2. Always hold the handle with the rod facing down. Place heel of the blade on the diamond rod closest to the screw cap.
    3. Hold blade at manufacturers suggested angle.
    4. While applying pressure, push the knife away from you towards the end of the rod. Draw knife down so that the tip of the blade comes off the end of the rod.
    5. For the other side of the blade repeat the above steps.

    Serrated Edges:

    1. Use the specially designed tapered round rod for serrated edges.
    2. Only sharpen the side of your knife-edge with the serrations.
    3. Hold rod at manufacturers suggested angle and move it back and forth through each serration until sharp.

    Hooks:

    Place hook in groove and move back and forth until sharp.

    Handy Tool

    This is a really handy tool to have when out in the garden, on a boat or in the woods. It shouldn't take the place of sharpening stones or other sharpening tools but it is a great in between sharpening tool when you are using your tool and it starts getting a little dull. You can whip it out on the spot and then get on with your task. I have bought many for my friends.

    I've used this sharpener for over three years. I carry it everywhere but in the courthouse and church. I use it on my Swiss Army Boy Scout Lock-back serrated blade. The only problem has been the sheath tightener stopped holding. I had to remove a small amount of metal from between the clamping fingers.
