Maximize the performance of your fine cutlery with this German-crafted honing steel. Made of high-carbon, corrosion-resistant steel, it keeps your knives sharp by both smoothing and realigning the blade's cutting edge. Maintains the edge of most standard knife blades (not for use on serrated or scalloped blades). Durable, corrosion-resistant high-carbon steel resists stains. Slightly textured polypropylene handle is extremely durable and ensures a solid grip while honing. Made in Germany by Zwilling J.A. Henckels, founded in 1731.
