For Christmas, Mr. Fox gave me the Bröd and Taylor Professional Knife Sharpener. I could not be happier with it. Unlike the myriad sharpeners I have purchased and dumped over the years, this one actually works. Would you like to see the gadget in action? Here we go:
The Bröd and Taylor Professional Knife sharpener is mercifully easy to use. Watch the above video for a real-life demonstration. Or, just scroll down for pictures and text. The sharpener is available on Amazon. Click here for details.
To hone a knife (meaning to restore its edge without removing any metal), simply position the knife with the tip higher than the handle. Then pull the knife through the V-shaped tungsten carbide sharpening bars 8-10 times. If you hone your knife before each use, you may never need to actually “sharpen” it.
To sharpen a really dull knife, position the knife with the tip lower than the handle. Then, while applying only slight pressure, pull the knife several times through the central “V.” The gadget will remove fine particles of metal from the knife blade. After sharpening, be sure wipe down the blade with a damp cloth. Then hone the knife and polish it (see next step).
To polish a knife (this gives the blade a professional, super-sharp edge), just hold the knife horizontally. Using your other hand, spread the upper knobs of the sharpening bars fully apart. Then slide the knife forward and backward through the central “V” a few times. Your knife will be razor-sharp at this point.
I’m so glad that Mr. Fox thought to purchase this stainless steel Bröd and Taylor Professional Knife Sharpener. It’s a keeper. I highly recommend it. xKevin (Hungry for more? Get my email updates.)
