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 10" Honing Steel (40582) features a combination cut that is half polished half fine with an ergonomic black plastic handle. This honing steel comes with a lifetime warranty against any defects in material and workmanship.
VICTORINOX warrants its products to be free from defects in material and workmanship for the entire life of the knife. This warranty does not cover abuse, misuse or normal wear and tear.
