What is the purpose of each of the Smart Sharp’s 3 stages?
Stage 1 – Prepare (Diamond rods) – This initial stage smooths out any nicks & imperfections that could cause the blade to ‘catch’ during the sharpening stage. It also roughens the knife edge to provide an even surface for sharpening.
Stage 2 – Sharpen (Tungsten Carbide Plates) – Slot 2’s precision angled plates then create the perfect sharpened ‘V’ edge on even the bluntest knife.
Stage 3 – Hone (Ceramic Rods) – This is for ﬁnal edge honing. It will remove any burs and gently polish the edge of the blade to bring it to its ﬁnal ﬁnish.
