Basic Knife Sharpening

A demo on how to sharpen a standard knife with the BlitzBlade Sharpener.

  • Push the blade against the metallic guide and slide it up until the blade touches the moving sander belt.
  • Pull the knife sideways with the blade in contact with the belt, and while keeping a steady hand on the guide.
  • Make sure to follow the curve of the blade as you pull the knife sideways. Repeat on both sides until the desired sharpness is achieved, two or three glides per side is normal – but for bigger blunter blades more glides will be necessary

Scissor Sharpening

A short demo on how to sharpen a standard scissor with the BlitzBlade Sharpener. 

  • Only the very narrow inside edge will be sharpened, not the whole blade as with a knife.
  • Check that the angle of that narrow side is facing correctly against the guide. Now slide up the scissor, but before touching the belt immediately Tilt the scissor and slide it through. 
  • Remember to flip the scissor and sharpen the other blade as well, following the same procedure.

Hard Steel Sharpening

The BlitzBlade Sharpener can sharpen and re-form even the hardest and toughest metal and material. Here we are shaping the cutting edge of a brand new Damascus steel blade.

  • Starting with the course grid belt to shape the angle of the edge, and then switching over to the medium belt to finely sharpen.

  • The fine belt can be used as a finishing polisher.

Secateur Sharpening

A short demo on how to sharpen a garden secateur with the BlitzBlade Sharpener. 

  • Only the top blade is sharpened.
  • Check that the angle of that narrow side is facing correctly against the guide. Now slide up the secateur, but before touching the belt immediately Tilt the scissor and follow the curve. Press the blade against the guide for support.
  • Repeat until desired sharpness is achieved.

SERRATED EDGE Sharpening

  • Sharpen only on reverse side (flat side, ‘behind’ the serrated edges)

     

  • Pull knife from left to right against belt and not against guide.
