Use the Shun Honing Steel to hone your knives, that is, to gently realign the cutting edge of your Shun cutlery, which is naturally unaligned as you use the knife. While fine European knives can require honing after each use, Shun's harder steel means you can hone just once a week or so, depending on your level of use. The Shun Honing Steel has a built-in angle on the handle, which makes it easy to hone your knives to the correct 16 degree Shun angle. The premium PakkaWood handle provides a secure grip and matches the handles of the rest of the beautiful Shun Classic line.
About Shun Classic
Shun Classic's tasteful and contemporary designs feature beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. Behind the knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering the most extreme performance possible. Shun's VG10 steel, known for its incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then bead-blasted, revealing the woodgrain pattern of the steel that allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. Shun Classic also offers the widest assortment of both traditional blade shapes and cutting edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.
