Fifteen graduate James Santrey shows how to sharpen a knife in this instructional video.
Making sure you have a non-slip surface like a chopping board underneath, hold a sharpening steel so that it’s upright. Take your knife and hold the tip against the upper part of the steel so that the blade is at a 45 degree angle. Then draw the knife down pulling it towards you as you go. So you sharpen the whole length. Repeat on the other side and then repeat the whole process about 8-10 more times.
