Mostly used to quickly maintain your blades before or after each use. Used by professionals such as butchers and chefs, it is an essential tool to keep your burr aligned for the tasks at hand. Not to be confused with a sharpening steel/sharpening rod that actually removes material to create a new cutting edge, the honing steel possesses no abrasive to do so.
Directions for use: Hold the blade at approximately a 15 - 20 degree angle and draw down and across each side of the steel.
