The Wusthof Hand-Held Santoku Knife Sharpener works easily. Place sharpener on a flat work surface. Hold the sharpener with one hand and the knife handle with the other. Insert the knife blade fully into the slot at a 90° angle to the sharpener. Apply moderate downward pressure on the blade while pulling the knife toward you through the appropriate notch. Repeat this action, always pulling the blade from heel to tip (never back and forth) through either ceramic notch. A reasonably sharp blade may only require light honing in the fine ceramic notch. The first stage ceramic is intended for dull edges that require more maintenance.
