Please help ... What is meant by 'draw' here in this context? Thanks?

Context:

Hold the knife sharpener on the ATD logo part with one hand and take the knife in your other hand. Then feed the knife with cutting edge downwards into slot number 1, draw the knife under slight pressure several times through the metal slot, and repeat this in slot 2.

    draw is a word that can mean "Pull moderately and constantly" against some sort of resistance to the pull, and that is what it means in that statement.  Yank would be similar but much more forceful, abrupt, and quick.  Don't yank it, draw it.

    It means run the knife through.
