Sharpening SUSHIMEN'S Knives
With proper care and regular sharpening, SUSHIMEN'S LINE of premium-quality
from Mundial will provide professional and home sushi chefs with a lifetime
while maintaining their sharpness, quality and beauty.
Sharpening SUSHIMEN'S knives is best performed in a three-step process:
Lubricate a natural Arkansas whetstone with Honing Oil and position it
on a waist-high work surface.
Gripping the SUSHIMEN'S knife by its handle,
hold its blade against the stone so that its beveled edge lies flat on
the surface of the stone.
Applying firm and steady pressure, push the blade against and across
the stone in a smooth stroke,
beginning with the foot of the blade (nearest the handle) and ending
at the tip of the knife.
Repeat several times until a burr forms on the sharpened edge of the
Turn the knife over onto its flat side. Keeping the blade flat against
the stone and applying steady pressure,
move it across the stone from one end to the other in a spiral motion.
Repeat the complete honing procedure several times, reducing the pressure
on the blade each time.
2. Fine Honing
Switch to a Hard Arkansas whetstone and repeat the procedures used in
the first step.
3. Burnishing Switch to a Natural Extra-Fine Honing Stone and repeat
the procedures used in the first two steps. Following these directions
will result in a razor-sharp knife with a brilliant mirror finish.
