This professionally designed knife sharpener makes it easy for you to sharpen even the dullest edges! While it is professional grade sharpener, it is only designed to work on steel blades, so fight back the urge to sharpen your ceramic knives with it.

This is advisable for very dull blades, to remove imperfections and ready the blade for the rest of the process. Then use the ceramic slot to hone the edge to perfection.
You can also use the ceramic slot to sharpen your serrated blades. Do it carefully though, as it is very easy to damage the serrations on a blade by doing this, and avoid applying any pressure to the blade when you are doing it.
This small and compact sharpener is made from steel and has a no slip base that allows you to safely use it. Just make sure you place it on a flat surface and apply slight pressure to avoid slippage.
