Knife sharpening is the process of making a knife or similar tool sharp by griding against a hard, rough surface, typically stone or a soft surface with hard particles,The smaller the angle between the blade and stone, the sharper the knife will be, but the less side force is needed to bend the edge over or chip it off. The angle between the blade and the stone is the edge angle – the angle from the vertical to one of the knife edges, and equals the angle at which the blade is held.
