Also known as pull thru sharpeners, these sharpeners are great when you need a fast sharp edge on your knife.
A handheld knife sharpener is a compact, packable knife sharpener designed for sharpening on the go. The diamond sharpening plate and ceramic honing rod use built-in angle guides to create a sharp edge anytime, anywhere.
Pull the knife through the course slot of the sharpener, from the heel to the tip, using even pressure, three to six times (pull through more times for more dull or damaged knives).
Depending on how the handheld sharpener is designed, you either draw the knife through the slots while the sharpener is placed on a flat surface, or the sharpener is drawn down the length of the blade while the knife is carefully held spine-down on a table or countertop. Both types of handheld sharpeners easily sharpen a dull knife back to perfect cutting form.
