The Sora Combination Honing Steel is used to hone your knives and gently realign the cutting edge of your Shun cutlery. With each use of your knife, the edge naturally bends over just a tiny bit. The edge is still sharp, but the sharpest part isn't making contact with the food. The answer is honing. It realigns the edge and prolongs the sharpness.
The right tool for prolonging the sharpness of your edge
Has two surfaces: a smooth one for weekly honing, and a micro-ribbed one for monthly honing, depending on use
Built-in angle guide makes it easy to hone your Sora knives at the correct angle
