The knife sharpener is an instrument that sharpens knife blades edge when it becomes blunt. It is always advised to use patent technologies as the sharpness last for a longer period and also it gives a guarantee. The sharpener does not use any grinding mechanism unlike the electric sharpeners. Only a global sharpener will result in professionalism as it will be suitable in wide arrays of knives such as a standard kitchen knife, any professional steel knife which is very harder, hunting knife, army knife or even serrated knife. For a knife to be sharpened the sharpening angle is considered to be very important because the knife may have sharpness but there will be a incorrectness in the angle so that before you will know you will be sharpening it again. A knife sharpener is very essential because a dull knife kitchen is always dangerous than a sharp one because we have to use more force and the blades edge gets folded over a period of time either when cutting or chopping. One of the example is using a cutting board makes the knife dull rather a wooden board can be used so that the edges of the blade can be preserved.

Maintenance of knifes is very essential so for this purpose knife sharpener is very useful skill that will be very easy to sharpen our own knives. The best design to choose for a sharpener is the two stone types because using a one stoner type it will be very difficult to sharpen the edges as the angle will not be accurate.

The electric sharpener will have a two stone device, as it will spin around the device. It is the easiest and the best way to sharpen the knife, as we just have to place the knife into the sharpener by holding its handle where the blade edge will be kept down and must be kept away from us. The knife handle must be drawn back in a smooth way and not in a jerky motion. Only a smooth motion will provide a result evenly as it will be working on both sides simultaneously. The manual sharpener will have a shape in a cross manner where the knife has to be placed. This will work out in the same manner as the electric one but the only difference is it has to be done manually.

It is always advisable to use a safety precautions whenever sharpening a knife. We should be very caution when the knife slips through the knife sharpener so that it does not revert back to the operators.
