With every day use, the edge of a fine blade becomes mis-aligned on a tiny, microscopic level. This is a natural occurrence and does not mean your knives need to be sharpened. By using the Kai Kershaw 9 Honing Steel, you can gently re-center the cutting edge into proper alignment and bring your blades back to life. By honing your knives regularly, about once a week with normal use, your knives can feel like new and go longer between sharpening sessions.
The Kai Kershaw 9900 series of knives offers both outstanding value and quality, rivaling the cutting performance of pricier knives. The handle is constructed from a combination of elastomer and polypropylene, providing both a soft touch and firm texture, giving you a solid grip and reducing fatigue as you hone your blades. The black-and-white aesthetic of the Kai Kershaw 9900 series offers a clean and contemporary style that looks right at home in any kitchen.
