Honing steels are essential to the everyday maintenance of your cutlery. Running your knives along the steel either before or after every use helps maintain sharpness by realigning the edge and correcting the causes of dullness, such as a rolled edge. Honing steels are for maintaining sharpness, while diamond steels actually remove metal from the blade and sharpen it. Because of this, diamond steels should only be used when the blade has become dull. Victorinox offers a wide range of honing and diamond steels, their 12” Diamond Steel (40689) features an economic hollow core, hangtag and ergonomic black plastic handle. This diamond steel comes with a lifetime warranty against any defects in material and workmanship.
