A sharp knife makes better work easier and safer. You can use oil stone, water stone, or diamond stone. The gizmo knife sharpener is okay but damages the edge over time by making it thicker. Here’s how to sharpen a knife.
Until you have a drill – a wire edge forms on the side of the blade opposite the blade you are grinding – you don’t perform grinding that edge of that edge. You can see a burr. Or, feel the blade by pulling the tip of your finger off the edge – across the back of the blade, not towards the heel.
Most kitchen knives have a 20-degree bevel. For fillets, a bevel angle of 12 to 15 degrees on each side provides a clean, easy cut and reasonable resistance to tarnish. If you don’t cut a bone, single strand, or fillet with a fillet knife, the 15-degree oblique angle will serve you well.
Divide the width of the blade at the heel by 5 to get the height on the stone needed to achieve a 12-degree bevel. If your knife is 0.75 inches wide at the heel, divide 0.75 by 5 equals the spine height of 0.15 inches. You don’t like math? Stack two quarters, each 0.07 inch, to get the corner.
It does not matter. I like to lead with the edges. Pull, the edge is towards you; push, the edge is far from you.
Draw the blade through the stone, sweeping from the heel to the top as you go. When you have a full-length drill, sharpen it to create a drill on the other side. Finish with the first strokes of the blade, like cutting a piece from stone, until the burr disappears.
