Reserve Honing Steel
The right tool for maintaining your Shun-sharp Reserve edge
With each use of your knife, the edge naturally bends over just a microscopic bit. The edge is still sharp, but the sharpest part isn’t making contact with the food. The remedy for this is honing. Regular honing realigns the edge so that sharpest part contacts the food, enabling you to go longer between 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.
The Shun Reserve Sharpening Steel has an angle guide built into the handle, so you can easily hone and sharpen your knives at the correct 16° Shun angle. The beautiful charcoal and crimson PakkaWood handle provides a secure grip and matches the handles of the rest of the Shun Reserve line.
