How Do Knife Sharpeners Work?

Knife sharpeners are a way of preserving
knives and other such tools that have become blunt with use and therefore less

Sharpeners work by grinding the knife
against a hard, rough surface. Usually stone is the most common type of
sharpener but sandpaper (which has a soft surface but is hard), can also be

You can take your knives to a knife shop
where they will sharpen them for you (on average once a year), but if you are a
keen knife user and want to keep your knives sharp and in excellent condition,
it might be worth buying a sharpener of your own.

To sharpen your own knives you’ll need to invest in a good whetstone. These are
stones that are available in fine, medium and coarse grits.

The sharpener will come with
instructions about the angle you need to place the knife at in order to sharpen

You can also buy stones for polishing
and to complete the job properly, after you have sharpened your knife, you
should polish it.

Can you effectively sharpen a 12in hunting knife with a dremmel? if so How do i do it

Hi Patrick

You CAN, but IMO the dremel would be too aggressive for the job. My grandfather gave me a pocket whetstone many years ago and I use it to sharpen my Leatherman wave tool. Works amazingly well, I can almost shave with it.

A good reference on how to use a whetstone to sharpen a knife can be found at:

This particular set of instructions refers to a pocket knife, but the principles involved are the same.

Hope this helps you out.

Can you use a knife sharpener on a bread knife?

If you were to use a knife sharpener on a bread knife in short term it might help the dullness issue slightly. However, the longer you use it the duller the grooves will be. A bread knife is a bread knife because of those grooves! My suggestion would be to use the sharpener on a bread knife for a maximum of four or five times. Anything after that would probably widdle down the grooves to the point where you are actually making the knife less effective.

How do i sharpen cylinder mower blades

I believe you mean to say a 'reel' mower. Normally and old fashoined push (non-engine powered) mower.

Most consumer reel mowers do not need to be sharpened. They do however have a knife bed that occasionally needs to be adjusted. It should have the thickness of a regular piece of notebook paper between the blades and the knife bed. (that is really VERY close) You can buy 'lapping compound' from an automotive parts store, and apply that to the bed knife, and then rotate the blades to provide a precise fit for all blades.

Commercial reel mowers, such as those used on golf course equipment are however sharpened normally once or twice a year. It requireds dismantling, and many courses send their blades to a central location for golf equipment, where they are placed on a computer operated sharpener for precision grinding. This cost several hundreds of dollars just for the grinding.
