Shun Classic Blonde 9" Combination Honing Steel
As your knife contacts the cutting board, the razor-sharp edge naturally bends over just a little bit. The edge is still sharp, but its not the sharpest part thats moving through the food. The answer is frequent honing with the Shun Classic Blonde Combination Honing Steel. It gently realigns the edge of the blade, prolonging the knife's sharpness. This attractive honing steel has two surfaces: a smooth one for day-to-day honing, and a micro-ribbed one for weekly honing.
