Do you know the difference between Honing vs Sharpening: A honing blade is a maintenance tool to to align and push the edges of the knife black back to the center and straighten. Wusthof recommends after every 2.5 to 3 hours of use the knife is honed. When you sharpen a knife tiny bits of the blade are shaved off to produce a new, sharp edge. This set comes with the maintenance honing tool for quick alignment of the blade.
