Your Shun knives with their hardened steel construction do not require honing as often as some other knives. But when they do, about once a week with regular use, the Shun Classic 9" Honing Steel is the ideal companion to bring your fine Shun knives back to life. This exceptional honing tool features a super fine texture to gently re-center your blade's cutting edge, which regularly becomes unaligned with normal use. The handle features an angle guide to better assist holding the blade to the correct 16˚ angle while honing. Just a few gentle strokes and your blades can feel like new again.
The handle of the Shun Classic 9" Honing Steel is constructed from resin-treated hardwood, Shun’s innovative PakkaWood that provides the natural beauty of wood with the durability of polymer plastic. The D-shape of the ebony-black handle fits naturally and securely in the palm of your hand. Sanded and buffed to a smooth, glossy appearance, the handle resists moisture and offers exceptional durability with a refined, contemporary look. Hand-wash Shun Cutlery for longer edge retention.
