Product Info

This is a handy tool for anyone learning to sharpen Global knives on a whetstone.

These guides clip on to the top of the knife blades and hold the knife at exactly the right angle. Recommended as a training guide only - as soon as you are confident in your technique - you should sharpen your knives without the guides.

Instructions come with product.

Quality knives should be kept sharp and in good condition for a long life, ease of use and safety. We recommend that they are sharpened periodically on a whetstone before they become dull to preserve the original edge.

The optimal blade angle for most cutting tasks is between 10 and 20 deg. Using these guides will help you achieve this sharpening angle on a whetstone and so get the best performance from your knives.

The small rail for knives with blade lengths up to 15cm and the large one for blade lengths over 15cm.

These guide rails are lined with plastic to minimise any scratching on the knives during their use. Any time you remove one from your knife, rinse and clean thoroughly to remove any particles of grit remaining inside the Guide Rail which can scratch the knife when next used.

Perfect sharpening angle - but beware, scratches knives

This guide rail system is perfect for helping achieve the correct angle for Global knives, especially for those new to whetstone use.
Be warned though, they scratch your knives! (a google search will confirm this)
As a solution you could tape the top of your knife before sharpening. Not ideal, but will save your R1000 knives.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I thought I had Global knife sharpening down but as it turns out my angle was slightly out and there's been a big difference since using these to correct that.

Only downside is now I have to buy a rough stone because once you've let the edge go it's an almighty mission to get it back to perfect using a 1000 grit stone.

NB: If you can, it's worth spending extra for the Read more

Essential for Japanese knives

Item Reviewed: Weight: 28 g

Review by Justin A. on 12 August 2013

These guide rails are essential in maintaining a 10-15* angle for creating convex (apple seed) edges on sharpening stones - which give Japanese knives their superior cutting ability.

Worth the spend.
