If you have never tried a diamond “steel” you should!
This beauty has a 10 inch round rod and has the same weight and feel as the old normal steel sharpeners. It is the longest one in the photo.
I have found diamond sharpeners have more “bite” to them and they last longer than traditional sharpeners.
This one has a fine grit finishing rod to get your knives razor sharp.
Used in exactly the same way you use your old steel “steel”.
I also have 8 inch rod sizes as well as a variety of other diamond knife and tool sharpeners.
Overall length: 15 inch (38cm)
Rod length: 10 inch (25cm)
Rod diameter: 32mm
Weight: 28.6 grams
Handle: Plastic moulded.
Some people tell you a normal metal “steel” doesn’t wear out. Well I have bought brand new ones that were less than useless – and they do corrode and they DO wear out. Ask any butcher.
