Classic Honing Steel

Honing keeps your blade sharper longer
Use the Shun Honing Steel to hone your knives, that is, to gently realign the cutting edge of your Shun cutlery. With each use of your knife, the edge naturally bends over just a tiny bit. The edge is still sharp, but the sharpest part isn’t making contact with the food. The answer is honing. It realigns the edge and prolongs the sharpness. While fine European knives can require honing after each use, Shun's harder steel means you can hone just once a week or so, depending on your level of use.
The Shun Classic Combination Honing Steel has two surfaces: a smooth one for day-to-day honing, and a micro-ribbed one for weekly honing. It has a built-in angle on the handle, which makes it easy to hone your knives to the correct 16° Shun angle. The premium PakkaWood® handle provides a secure grip and matches the handles of the rest of the beautiful Shun Classic line.
