Before cutting, chopping and slicing, reach for the Wüsthof Diamond Steel 9 Sharpener to sharpen your knives. This sharpener is coated with a fine grit of industrial diamonds along the length of the steel. There is a hanging loop at the end of the slip-resistant handle. A damp cloth is all you need to wipe the diamond steel clean after each use.
TIP: To sharpen your knives, hold the knife so the blade is at a 45 degree angle and pull across in a swift motion a dozen times, alternating sides. Pulling the blade towards you keeps consistent pressure instead of using a sawing back and forth motion.
