Top Rated Sharpening Steels

An ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure when it comes to your fine cutlery. Regularly using honing steels on your knives ensures that they stay sharp for the long haul. Our top-rated honing steels received our best customer reviews because they work well with very little effort. Even a few minutes on a wooden or plastic cutting board can dull a knife blade. Fortunately, it only takes a few swipes from a knife sharpening steel to render the blade good as new.

There are many different lengths of sharpening steels available; the rule of thumb is to choose a sharpener that exceeds the length of the blades you'll be sharpening. It's also important that your sharpening steel has a comfortable handle and a hand guard, since you're going to hold the tool vertically with the point on the cutting board. You may prefer a softer nylon handle or the more secure feeling of a stainless-steel handle with a specially designed grip. Many of our top-rated sharpening steels have two different surfaces: a smooth one for everyday honing and a micro-ribbed one for weekly edge maintenance. Both these surfaces keep your blades sharp and help restore proper alignment. Once you're finished using the smooth or micro-ribbed sharpening steel, be sure to wash the blade and wipe it gently with a towel to remove any debris. Our top-rated sharpening steels have been carefully selected to considerably extend the usable life of your fine cutlery with only a few minutes of effort a week, and we think you'll be pleased with the results.

Popular Brands:
Calphalon, J.A. Henckels and Wusthof make a number of very popular sharpening steels, and their sharpeners are made with the same quality craftsmanship as their knives and other products. You can also protect your investment in a Shun knife with a specialty Shun honing steel.
