ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS has developed some very easy to use sharpening devices. The TWINSHARP Select knife sharpener makes life so much simpler and safer.
The TWINSHARP Select can be used by right- and left-handers alike. Draw the blade in one single stroke only, applying only little pressure. Draw the blade with your hand only towards the body, do not tilt the blade.
This innovative knife sharpener with its two separate sharpening modules sharpens knives simply, safely and effectively. It is easy to use because, in contrast to the sharpening steel, the angle is pre-set. Thus it is nearly impossible to use this sharpener the wrong way. Using its steel wheels, module 1 is able to gently remove small damages to the edge. Module 2 gently smoothes the edge and restores the knife to its high sharpness. Above all TWINSHARP Select works equally for left- and right-handers.
Prior to using your new knife sharpener, please read this manual carefully to avoid damages to knives and/or sharpener. This knife sharpener may only be used for uncoated knives with a straight edge. It comprises two modules which are marked as follows:

The TWIN Stone Pro is a sharpening stone specifically developed for the blades of ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS knives. This stone gives them the desired “Asian sharpness”.
Please read these instructions carefully prior to first use to prevent any possible damages to knife or stone.
This combination stone comprises two different layers: the dark side for coarse sharpening and the light one for fine sharpening.
The dark side is used on a blunt knife or to remove small dents in the blade. The best degree of pre-honing is achieved when a little burr becomes visible on the edge (fig. 4) which is subsequently smoothed off.
Note: Make sure that the stone always stays wet. Do not remove the paste while sharpening as it helps sliding the knife across.
Please note: The sharpening of knives is a process which comprises a risk of injury for which ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS cannot be held be responsible.
