When using a whetstone, the blade should be held at a sharpening angle of about 15-20 degrees.
Each person has an individual angle at which he or she sharpens the knife. The blade of the knife becomes sharper each time it is sharpened, so it essential that a knife is always sharpened in the same manner and by the same person.
Knives with a serrated blade, such as bread knives, should only be sharpened by a certified professional.
