Saturate a soft cloth with dish soap.
Rub the cloth (with dish soap) over the surface of the knife, carefully. This will lubricate the knife, which is important while sharpening.
Lay the sharpening stone on a table or other stable, flat surface. Ensure that you keep the sharpening stone in the same position throughout the sharpening process.
Place the Cutco knife on the sharpening stone at a 20-degree angle or slightly tilted. Starting from the tip of the blade to the handle, move the knife in a circular motion--ensuring that the sharpening stone remains still. Do this for the one side of the blade.
Flip the knife over and repeat step 4--moving the blade from the tip to the handle in a circular motion. It is important to sharpen both sides of the knife the exact same way. If you don't, the blade won't be as sharp as it should be.
Things You Will Need
- Sharpening stone
- Dish soap
- Soft cloth
- Try to keep the angle of the blade between 15 to 30 degrees.
- Keep the sharpening application consistent to have a successful sharpened knife. If you are using circular motions on one side, you need to do the same with the other side.
