Full description

The Lansky ceramic sharpening steel is ideal for the daily maintenance of knives. By sharpening your knife regularly with this sharpening steel with medium grit, your knife always remains sharp and you will postpone an extended sharpening service for a long period of time.

The advantage of a ceramic sharpening steel compared to a honing steel is that the sharpening steel really sharpens while a honing steel only straightens small burrs that arose during the use of a knife. The effectiveness of a ceramic sharpening steel is larger and the result is better.

Medium to medium fine grit ceramic steel. A little short but a good handle, comfortable in the hand and a few wipes restores the edge on slightly dulled knive. It only needs a gentle touch though for best results on fine edges and you have to take care to get the angle right. Three to five wipes each side followed by a a few wipes on a leather strop restores edges to razor sharp. The only thing to take great care over is not to drop it as I did! It will shatter as with all ceramic steels so needs to be kept stored in the protective plastic housing it came with. I have ordered a more robust one as this is just a little too thin and fragile for regular use and abuse in a busy kitchen. Regular use staves off the need to restore edges on water stones or whetstones but don't think these are a replacement for proper use of fine grit sharpening and honing stones as they're not but they are very useful. I found it best to use a good quality steel first then use this sharpener to refine the edge before stropping. Takes seconds. Just be prepared to go through a few of these if you drop or damage them.
