Product Details

Just as any great chef needs to hone their trade in order to become successful, he or she needs to hone their tools as well. Fortunately, Update International offers a device perfect for the latter in the form of its 8” x 2” aluminum oxide sharpening stone (G-0208). Contrary to the popular convention, duller knives are much less safe than sharp knives. As the surface of a knife edge dulls over time, it becomes more jagged and dented. It also fools the user into thinking it’s safer, causing him or her to use less caution than they should. This aluminum oxide sharpener with both a coarse and fine grit will keep knives well-maintained, which will lead to longer blade life.
