This Zwilling Twin 1731 honing steel is different from other honing steels. Compared to regular honing steels this version is namely enhanced with a small amount of ceramics. As such this steel can remove a little material. This also means that this tool is more of a combination between a honing and a sharpening steel.
The honing steel is made from tungsten carbide: a hard metal with ceramic components. Due to the hardness and the fine grain all steel knives can be honed without damaging them.
While most common honing steels are practical tools, that look like every other honing steel, this is not the case for this Zwilling honing steel. You can proudly add this honing steel to your knife block: the design is completely the same as the the stunning kitchen knives from this Twin 1731 collection. The Zwilling logo, for instance, is added to the bolster. But especially the handle stands out. It is made from untreated, oiled ebony wood and gives the honing steel its natural and fancy look and feel.
