This Wüsthof Classic honing steel 4472, 26 cm is the perfect tool for quickly sharpening your kitchen knives before use. Before using your knife, drag it along the honing steel a few times and flatten out the burrs that appeared during previous use. Please note: a honing steel doesn't sharpen your knife, as it doesn't remove any material. Honing steels are used for minor daily maintenance of your knives.
Sharp knives are indispensable for people who love to cook. Sharpening knives on a regular basis is essential to make sure they continue to function as they should. It also extends the life of the knife! This disadvantage of sharpening is that you are gradually removing material from the edge. But this isn't always necessary: sometimes you only need to push back the burr. That's when the honing steel can come in handy.
When choosing a honing steel, make sure you use one with the right length. The rule of thumb is that your honing steel needs to be as long as the longest knife you want to hone. So don't forget about that extra-long chef's knife you wish to purchase in the future!
