The Skerper Basic sharpening set gives you everything you need to start off your career as a master sharpener. The 180/600 stone re-shapes the edge of a dull blade and the 1000/3000 stone is the logical next step to keep your knives razor-sharp.
Using the Skerper sharpening stone
Soak the sharpening stone in water for a few minutes. This creates a layer of water on the stone that helps remove the residue. This ensures you can sharpen quickly and it also increases the lifespan of the stone. Don’t put pressure on the knife and let the stone do the heavy work!
The Skerper Basic ceramic sharpening steel
To maintain the sharpness of your knives daily you can use the Skerper Basic ceramic sharpening steel. It will give your knives that little extra needed sharpness. The ceramic is really fine in grain and structure, and will take only a very small amount of steel from the blade. Just enough to remove burrs and small traces of use. When you notice you’re not cutting through tomatoes as smoothly, use the sharpening steel shortly and your knife will fly through them like never before!
Because the steel is fully made from ceramic it will last a lifetime. As long as you don’t drop it of course!
Are you looking for a steel that will remove more material and makes the edge ‘bite’? Then you need the Skerper Basic sharpening set with the diamond sharpening steel!
