The Shun Sora 9-inch Combination Honing Steel is designed to gently realign the cutting edge of your Shun cutlery. Each time you use your knife, the cutting edge naturally bends over slightly. While the knife is still sharp, the sharpest edge is no longer making contact with the food. Honing the blade with a honing steel realigns this edge and prolongs the sharpness of the blade.
The Shun Sora Combination Honing Steel features two surfaces - a smooth side for everyday honing, and a micro-ribbed side for weekly honing. A built-in angle on the handle makes it easy to maintain the correct 16-degree Shun blade angle.
The Shun Sora honing steel handle is made of textured TPE polymer to provide excellent grip and balance without sacrificing ease of maintenance.
