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.
