Premier Honing Steel

The right tool for prolonging the sharpness of your edge
With each use of your knife, the edge naturally bends over just a microscopic bit. Your edge is still sharp, but the sharpest part isn’t making contact with the food. The remedy to this is honing. The Shun Premier Honing Steel is used to hone your knives, that is, to gently realign the cutting edge of your Shun knives. Regular honing straightens the edge so that sharpest part contacts the food, enabling you to go longer between actual sharpenings.
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, of course. The Shun Premier Honing Steel has an angle guide built into the handle, so you can easily hone your knives at the correct 16° Shun angle. The premium walnut PakkaWood® handle provides a secure grip and matches the handles of the rest of the beautiful Shun Premier line.
