SKU: 4826343
    Small Parcel - Courier

    To guarantee top performance from your cutlery, use this steel to hone knife blades. The forged-steel rod helps restore a knife's sharp edge by trueing it – that is, smoothing and realigning the blade's cutting edge.

    • Built-in 16-degree guide helps you hone at the correct angle.
    • Rod is forged from high-carbon steel.
    • Durable PakkaWood handle resists moisture and has a D shape, to sit comfortably in the hand.
    • Designed by Shun, a Japanese company that has produced fine cutlery for more than 90 years.
    • 9"-long rod.
    • 4 3/4"-long handle.
    • 7.5 oz.
    • Made in China.


    • Use with straight-edged knives only; not for use with serrated blades.
    • Steel length should measure at least as long as the knife being honed.
    • Line up the knife with the guide and make a few light strokes on each side of the blade.
    • Depending on how often you use your knives, you may wish to hone once a week.


    • Should metal filings accumulate on the steel, remove them with a damp cloth.
