Whether an amateur or professional chef, a sharpening steel is a must-have in every kitchen. For if used properly and regularly, it extends the lifespan of your knives considerably. Unlike knife sharpeners, sharpening steels are mainly used on slightly blunt knives. The key to using a sharpening steel correctly is its surface. Smooth sharpening steels realign slightly curved blades, while rough steels sharpen knives by removing a little of the blade every time it slides across the sharpening steel and then realigns it. Tip: Please use a sharpening stone to sharpen knives with extremely hard blades, e.g. the Japanese knives. A sharpening steel should not be used on such knives, as the blades undergo a special hardening process.
