Sharpening is, like so many things, a matter of practice, but the experience of top chefs and restaurateurs has shown that even professionals reach their limits when sharpening freehand and do not achieve the grinding quality as with a stable-angle system. Statements from renowned users such as the knife cuts up to 10 times longer and noticeably better confirm the use of a Nowi sharpening system.
This does not mean that you cannot use your technique, which you may have acquired freehand, on the Nowi system. The system is basically designed to keep the knife at a stable angle above the whetstone throughout the entire sharpening movement from tip to hilt. The movement of the knife is still up to you and is not tied to any particular technique. In the operating instructions you will find the technique we recommend on how to achieve a perfect result safely and quickly.
