Product Description

The butcher steel is often confused as a sharpener when in fact it is used to hone the blade. Diamond sharpeners are designed to shave away the blade creating new teeth for the blade to use. The butcher steel is a maintenance tool and should be used often to keep knives in great condition. Using steel is like brushing teeth, want to do it often. Sharpening knives is like going to the dentist, only want to do that once or twice a year. If hone blades often it won't have to sharpen knives for a long time. Honing blade should not be taken lightly, they are the key to keeping knives like new without the need of sharpening. Wooden handle knives are the most popular handle material in the world. The Traditional line of cutlery has stood the test of time and is the choice of many who appreciate the feel of a wood handle. The Dexter Traditional product line features a proprietary DEXSTEEL stain-free, high-carbon steel blade that is precision ground for durability. Including an individually ground and honed edge for just the right flexibility and durability. Unique edge geometry ensures a long lasting blade edge, and easily restored performance every time it's sharpened. The handles are durable and require minimal maintenance if cared for properly, these knives will last a lifetime. There is something to be said for great American made knives that have been used since the early 1800's.
