Default Life sharpening.

Hey guys I'm new to the forum and have a question on how to sharpen knives. I just got a new knife for Christmas. It's an Elk Ridge ER-052 440 stainless steel knife. I also bought a sharpening kit from academy that has an Arkansas soft and hard stone. I tried using a 20 degree angle like it said and following the instructions on the box but it's still not sharpening. I'm also VERY new when it comes to knives. My on laws are getting me into hunting and a little excited to be learning these things.

I got one of these for Christmas. From the video's it'll put a shaving edge on a knife. Haven't used it yet but I'll give and update when I do. I've never had any luck with stones or files. Welcome to the forum.
