Heads up! Promotions do not apply to this item.
A honing steel won’t make a dull blade any sharper, but it’s an indispensable tool for keeping a well-maintained knife’s edge in tiptop shape between sharpenings (more on how honing works here). This nifty little handheld tool is a great alternative to a honing steel to quickly realign your knife’s edge for better cutting—simply hold onto the curved handle and draw your knife through the V-shaped slot toward your body. The combination of steel and ceramic wheels acts to polish the blade, restoring its sharpness so you can fly through tomatoes, bell peppers, and fish filets with ease.
