Sharpening & Repairing Your Warther Knife

If self sharpening you may use:
a Honing Stone
a Diamond Knife Sharpener
a Ceramic Crock Stick Sharpener
a Warther Cutlery Knife Sharpener
any other Hand Sharpener

IMPORTANT! DO NOT use any Electric Sharpener where one pulls the knife through! This changes the type of beveled edge and removes too much steel on your knife.

Sharpening a Serrated Knife

We cannot resharpen any serrated knives. If you feel your serrated knife is completely worn out, we can grind the serration off and the knife will become a smooth edge knife.

How Often Should Warther Knives be Sharpened?

We recommend sharpening your Warther Knives once a year. Many people wait 2 to 3 years before sharpening their knives. Factors to Consider:

the Cutting Board
if you cut on a wood cutting board, sharpen your knives once a year
if you cut on plastic, sharpen your knives once every two to four weeks
if you cut on Corian, ceramic or glass, sharpen your knives several times a week

Recommended Cutting Board

Hardwood cutting boards are recommended to extend the life and sharpness of your knife. Corian, ceramic, and glass cutting boards are very hard and will dull your knives quickly. Some plastic cutting bards that are soft enough to cut lines on are good. However, a study at the University of Wisconsin-Madison indicates that plastic is more susceptible to bacteria growth than wood.
