From the manufacturer
A Honing Steel is an Essential Tool That Restores The Edge of a Knife Quickly and Effectively
Why Do you Need a Honing Steel?
On a microscopic level the thinnest part of a knife's edge will bend and warp when cutting food. To keep the cutting edge razor sharp, every knife eventually needs to be “steeled” in order to straighten out the tiny warps and bends that dull a blade through ordinary use. A Mercer Honing Steel restores a knife's edge quickly and easily.
The Edge of a Knife Warps as It Cuts
If you could look at a dull blade close-up you would see that the cutting edge is wavy instead of straight. A Mercer Honing Steel will straighten out this microscopic distortion and restore the cutting edge to razor sharpness. To get the best performance from any knife it's best to steel the cutting edge on a regular basis.
Steeling Straightens a Knife's Edge
It's important to hold the knife at the correct angle when using a Mercer Honing Steel. Pull the edge of the blade across the steel at a 25° angle, starting at the widest end of the blade and finishing at the tip. Reverse the blade and repeat. To keep knives sharp longer, avoid cutting on stainless steel, stone, or any hard surface.
