The Wüsthof Whetstone Sharpening Slider Angle Guide is wedge-shaped and has a structured silicone surface. The soft silicone surface prevents the blade from getting scratched as you sharpen the knife. The pre-set 14° angle keeps the knife at a consistent angle from the tip to the end of the blade.
This is the perfect accessory for the beginner chef to create that perfect angle to maintain an even cutting edge. This whetstone guide is easy to use; the ergonomic shape fits nicely in your hand to help sharpen wider blades. The underneath of the slider has a layer of Teflon, helping the slider glide smoothly over the whetstone.
