Set of 2 stainless guide rails to ease sharpening (kitchen) knives on a water stone. You slide them on the back of your knife and keep a constant angle very naturally. The inside of the guide rails has a plastic insert so that the chance of scratching your knife is minimal. To be sure, you can put a piece of tape on your blade to prevent scratches.
The set consists of 2 guide rails. The big one is for knives with a larger blade, while the small one is used on smaller knives. This provides an optimal sharpening angle.

Sharpening a Japanese knife
Japanese knives are sharpened using a much smaller angle than for instance European knives and are sometimes sharpened asymmetrical. Therefore these knives should never been sharpened on a sharpening device design for sharpening using a standard angle. Also we do not recommend sharpening these knives on a regular sharpening steel.
The ways to sharpen Japanese knives are:
- On a fine sharpening stone
- Using a ceramic or diamond coated sharpening steel.
- Using a water sharpener
designed for Japanese knives
