When the knife is dull, a new egg must be sharpened. Insert the knife into the hole on the rough side first. Then you pull the knife towards you, do this 5-7 times to sharpen a new egg. After that, feel free to switch sides and do the same on the fine side for fine grinding.

There are many different grinding methods and grinding tools. Both for those who want it simple and for the specialists.
