Keeping your knives sharp is important for the life of the knife, the quality of the cut, and the safety of the user. Most accidents that occur when using a knife are a result of a dull blade. The sharpening edge of the Wusthof Classic Ikon Sharpening steel is 10 inches, long enough to sharpen any knife collection. Just like all Wusthof knife blades, the 10 inch sharpening steel is forged from one piece of high-carbon stainless steel. Regular use of this honing steel keeps knives at their peak performance level and prevents dulling as well as lengthy sharpening endeavors. The fine sharpening texture straightens bent or rolled knife edges to make them supremely sharp again.
The weighted, double bolster of the Wusthof Classic Ikon Sharpening Steel provides ultimate balance and safety while still creating an impressively elegant appearance. The precision forward bolster makes it possible to easily utilize the full honing length while sharpening. A contoured, ergonomically-designed handle complete with a full tang and triple-riveting allows for comfort as well as permanent security. Featuring the classic Wusthof logo, the handle is also made from synthetic, durable polypropylene to resist cracking or warping.
Every Wusthof Sharpening Steel is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
