Keep your favorite knives performing at an optimal level with the beehive handled sharpening steel from Wusthof. This sharpening steel is an essential tool for maintaining fully functional cutlery. Over time, frequent knife use causes the knife edges to bend to either side, losing their "bite". With the Wusthof sharpening steel, knife blades are realigned, restoring them to their razor sharpness and helping them to last longer. Made of stain free steel, this sharpener features a unique beehive shaped black handle that fits the hand comfortably and provides a secure grip. The handy hanging loop makes storage easy and convenient.
