Best Kitchen Knife Sharpener

post-preview

Whetstones are for sharpening. Steels are for honing. You need one of each and you need to know how to use them properly if you want the best kitchen knife sharpener. Honing straightens out the edge, which rolls over sometimes and makes the knife feel dull when it still has an edge. Sharpening is actually cutting a new blade onto the knife. For the whetstone, most recommendations are between 600 to 2000 grit. Anything higher is for polishing, anything lower takes off too much metal.

The absolute best way to sharpen a knife is with a whetstone, but there's a learning curve. Depending on your comfort and how much time you want to invest, getting 2-3 good stones and a strop and you will get a razor sharp edge. That said, you will wreck a knife or two learning. For the whetstone, most recommendations are between 600 to 2000 grit. Anything higher is for polishing, anything lower takes off too much metal.

You'll also need a steel for honing. Diamond steel is your best choice of material. A diamond steel will take a little bit of metal off, which sharpens the knife a little bit to hone the edge.
