With the Gude sharpening steel from the Delta series you have the right sharpening tool. Sharpening is effective when the knife is not yet blunt, but simply no longer has the usual sharpness. The sharpening steel straightens the thinly sharpened edge of the knife. When used regularly, the sharpening steel maintains the sharpness of your knives and extends their durability many times over.
The Gude Delta knife series is hand-forged entirely with a drop hammer, as usual at the traditional knife manufacturer in Solingen, Germany. The blade is made of stainless chrome-molybdenum-vanadium knife steel and hand-sharpened. The raw blank is further processed in more than 40 largely manual operations. The grip inlays consist of grenadilla, a savannah wood from which musical instruments (flute, oboe) are usually made. The handle inlays are raised and therefore look particularly noble. The solid execution and the generously used materials give the knives of the Gude Delta series an extraordinary balance and make cutting a special experience. The classic handle shapes, which has been in use for over 100 years, has been retained - enlarged for the smaller knives.
