The frequency of sharpening depends on usage, but generally, it's good to sharpen your knife every few months to maintain optimal performance.

How do I sharpen my knives using honing steel?

To sharpen a knife using a honing steel, hold the knife at a 15-20 degree angle and slide it down the steel from the heel to the tip 5-10 times on each side. This method straightens the blade rather than sharpening it, maintaining its edge for smoother cutting.

What type of honing steel should I use for my knives?

For most kitchen knives, ceramic or diamond-coated steel is recommended because they are harder than standard steel and can realign the blade more effectively.
