Product Description

Size: 10"

When that time comes that you need to touch up the sharp edge of your Wusthof knife the Diamond steel is a good option. The Wusthof 10 inch diamond steel can align your knife edge and unlike traditional steels, the Diamond Steel also contains fine abrasives that will sharpen your knife as well as re-aligning the blade. Used like a traditional honing steel the diamond steel is very fine and and can bring up a very fine edge.

I expect both to last a very long time.
R. Weger
We especially like the oval shape of the steel, as opposed to the more common cylindrical steels.

It has a good size, its durable, and makes its job very very well.

This is the best diamond sharpener I've seen (I've bought several and just ordered two more, one for my son and one for my workshop.) It's a great way to keep sharp knives sharp. It takes a while to get a dull knife sharp using this sharpener but it can be done.

Don't rub the knife across the the sharpener. Keep the knife at approximately 45 degrees to the sharpener and move it lengthways up and down the sharpener (sharpening on the down stroke, or as you pull the knife toward the sharpener handle.) Choose an appropriate sharpening angle. The exact sharpening angle is a matter of personal choice depending on what type of edge you wish to create (the lower the angle, the sharper the knife BUT the more delicate the edge.)

If you have difficulty choosing a sharpening angle, it's okay, you'll get the hang of it after a few sharpenings. As you sharpen, you're trying to create small, near microscopic, teeth on the edge of the knife. If you move the knife across the sharpener, tip to handle, this will not happen. WARNING - ALMOST EVERYONE, USED TO USING A DULL KNIFE, WHEN USING A NEWLY SHARPENED, RAISER EDGE KNIFE, WILL CUT THEMSELVES. BE CAREFUL!!

Good luck,

Rod

June, 2014. After using this sharpeners for a couple of years I noticed there was one large spot on one side where the diamond material had come off. It was not normal wear, rather a failure of the bonding agent. I emailed Wusthof about the problem hoping they would replace the sharpener. I was told that things wear out and that I should just buy another one.

This did not sit well as a diamond coated sharpener is something you should be able to leave for posterity to enjoy. I emailed them back and bluntly explained that I considered their response inappropriate.

The first thing I did was to sharpen my favorite old knife. The second thing I did was to bandage my thumb after checking to see if it was getting sharpe. Think I'll use a piece of paper or a tomato to check next time!

I've been a professional chef for five years and I only buy Wusthof cutlery. The diamond sharpening steel is the best there is available. The steel will not only hone your blades but it will also sharpen them. Sometimes even better than a professional. The ten inch length is good if you have a knife of the same size, but I think it could be a bit longer.

I prefer to use knives no longer than 10 inches unless required. My favorite knife is an 8" Chef's Knife from the Wusthof Classic collection. I use this steel at least once daily and use it on all my knives monthly. I wouldn't reccommend anything else for my Wusthof's.

I cook for a living, and I use this steel daily in the kitchen. I have found it to be durable, of good construction, and a good value for the price. Within less than 15 seconds I can put a quick edge touch-up on a knife, though I feel the steel is too coarse to be used alone: I typically finish the edge on a ceramic rod, otherwise I find I have too much of a 'ripping edge'. I plan on buying another when this current one is worn out, and I don't expect that to happen for at least two years of hard professional use. Works especially well with carbon steel knives, I have never seen my fish slicing knives sharper!

I have used machines, grinding stones, and several other sharpening gadgets. This is the easiest to use sharpening tool; it just takes a few passes on each side to leave the knife in an almost new condition. I have no hesitation in using often. Note that this is a sharpener (ie, it wears the knife), it is not an edge straightener.

Having read the reviews of a couple or three Professional Chefs, I ordered the Sharpening Steel and.........WOW!.....What a difference! I've had a 12" Diamond Steel from another brand and "Thought" it was good, and it is......however....this one is very superior! Now I can understand why the Professionals prefer this one. I have several Wusthof Knives and love each of them but had just never thought about the Sharpening Steel until I read the reviews. Great work, Wusthof! I very strongly recommend this Steel.
