Chromium Honing Steels
Chromium honing steels are the most popular for their strength, variety, and reasonable price. These will work with all knives, but are best suited to German or Western knives. A chromium honing steel won’t remove any steel, but will realign your edge when it starts to dull, keeping your knives sharp for longer.
Some of the best chromium honing steels come from trusted brands like EdgeLogix, Fischer Steels, Shun, Wusthof, and J.A. Henckels.
