SHARPNESS TESTING

With paper or "French fries"

To determine whether your knife is still sharp, we recommend the paper test at home. Simply take a piece of paper, hold it in the air in front of you and cut through the sheet with the knife and a bold movement. If the blade glides through effortlessly, the blade is still sharp. If not, you should sharpen it.

A professional tool for exceptional sharpening results – even over time. The Electric Knife Sharpener boasts three stages for the honing, sharpening and fine polishing of blades, replacing coarse sharpening steels, fine whetstones and finishing with leather and polish; operating it is simple and flexible. Asian knives can also be sharpened with the Electric Knife Sharpener.•    Handy table-top device.•    Flexible grinding belts.•    Integrated dust suction.•    Interchangeable angle guide.•    Replaceable PEtec blade guide•    Intelligent "One Touch" program control.•    Anti-slip rubber base.•    Delivery only within Germany.Improve handling with the Upgrade Set (7918).Replace the grinding belts with the Spare Belt Set (7918-1).
The easiest way to sharpen knives and to keep them sharp. This 2-stage pull-through, V-shaped Knife Sharpener with tungsten and ceramic steels is particularly suitable for those who do not feel comfortable using Sharpening Steels or Whetstones. With this Sharpener, the knife is simply drawn through the guiding notches a few times - the notch with tungsten steel is used for coarser sharpening (for blunt blades) while the ceramic notch is for fine sharpening (for coarsely sharpened or moderately-sharp blades) – and results are quickly achieved.
A sharpening stone for a particularly gentle way of honing and sharpening your knives. WÜSTHOF Whetstones consist of a combination of different high-quality, abrasive grits. The stones have two sides – one with a fine grit and one coarse. The coarse side is used to smooth off any unevenness while the finer grit is used to hone and sharpen your knife.We recommend the Whetstone Holder, which guarantees even more stability, to accompany the Whetstone.
A sharpening rod with a diamond coating, which should be used for dull or moderately sharp knives. The special shape of the diamond grit on the sharpening rod ensures exceptional sharpening of the knife blade. The result: a smooth, sharp edge. Diamond sharpening rods are available in fine and normal grit. As these rods remove a tiny amount of metal from the knife, we recommend an additional WÜSTHOF Honing Steel for daily or weekly sharpening.

Honing Steel for exceptional honing of your knives. Even high-quality knives, such as those made by WÜSTHOF, gradually dull due to use: to compensate, a honing steel should be used regularly. A few strokes of both sides of the knife over the sharpening steel will help you to maintain the sharpness of a good blade. We recommend using a Diamond Steel or a Ceramic Steel to restore the sharpness of particularly blunt knives.
