How to whet knives with the sharpening steel

Wetzstahl
Like this...
Wetzstahl Hold the sharpening steel vertically over a non-slip base. The tip of the blade should point upward.
Messer Move the blade from bolster to point at an angle of about 22° with slight pressure over the steel. Move the arm but not the wrist.
Or like that...
Wetzstahl Hold the sharpening steel at arm's length in front of you. The blade is drawn at an angle of approximately 22° against the steel.
Messer The sharpening is done perfectly when both sides of the blade from bolster to tip alternatingly glide over the full length of the steel.
