Honing and Sharpening

Here we explain how you can keep your WÜSTHOF knives sharp for a long time.

Honing or sharpening?
That depends on whether your knife has just lost its sharpness due to constant use or whether it has become really blunt.
Knives that have lost their sharpness can be sharpened using a honing steel.
For blunt knives, use a sharpener.
WÜSTHOF has the right tool for the job and will give you some important tips on how to use it.
