Keep your Dexter Russell knife as good as new by regularly sharpening and honing the blade. Knife sharpeners and honing steels (also known as butcher steels or honing rods) help keep the edge of your knife centered and the blade sharp. The Dexter Russell Diamond Sharpener is designed to shave away part of the blade to create new teeth for the blade to use. At Tundra Restaurant Supply we carry a variety of Dexter Russell knife sharpeners. Check them out below!
Contrary to popular belief, a sharpening steel (or honing steel/rod) does not sharpen your knife. A common misnomer, the sharpening steel actually helps to bring the edge of your knife back to center, which might make the knife seem sharper when cutting. A sharpening steel can be used quite frequently—several times a week—depending on usage.
A knife sharpener, on the other hand, removes a thin layer of steel on the knife. Knife sharpers like the EZ Edge Knife Sharpener by Dexter Russell removes the dull blade of your knife to reveal a sharper, new edge. Because knife sharpeners literally strip away material from your knife, excessive use will wear your knife much faster. High quality knives should only need to be sharpened once or twice a year.
