Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • What does the Advanced Sharpening class cover that this (Knife Sharpening Class) does not?

    So the advanced sharpening class is going to go over more of the japanese sharpening techniques, as well as the blade thinning process, or what we call "Hot-rodding", fixing chips, re-profiling the blade, an introduction to single-bevel sharpening as well, where the regular knife sharpening class just goes over the basics and fundamentals of sharpening knives, giving you the ability to sharpen most of what you have at home, but not going into the advanced techniques and really explaining the concepts of what to do, and why we do it!

    Hope this helps! If youhave any other questions you can email us at Sales@knifewear.com or call us toll free at 1-888-669-1033
