No instructions


Posted by Picasa

One of my relatives who fancies himself a gourmet cook heaped scorn on my collections of knives. They all seem to be dull and useless, although I have managed to cut my fingers on all of them, so how dull could they be? However, bowing to his superior knowledge I ordered two knives from Amazon.

While I was at it, I ordered a knife sharpener, which only cost $5.95. This came yesterday, and I have been trying to figure it out, so I could perhaps sharpen my dull knives while I await delivery of the two new and expensive ones.

This came without instructions, and I have looked at it from every angle trying to figure out how to use it. So far, no luck.

OK, I'll tell'ya!

Turn it upside down from the position @ the 1st picture, so the pair of dual disks is on top.
Hold the sharpener with your left hand rested on the arched support (if you're right- handed). With the knife in your right hand, move the blade between dual disks, better - in one direction.
Your sharpener appears to have calibrating device, so you can change the gap between the disks for different knife thicknesses.

That's a bargain you got there, Miriam!
