With the Gude sharpening steel from the Kappa 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.
All Gude knives of the Kappa series are made of a single piece of chrome-vanadium-molybdenum knife steel. This steel is hand-forged. Each individual knife is manufactured in over 30 manual steps. The knives are ice-hardened after forging, which gives the steel an extreme strength and thus a higher cutting durability. The one-piece all-metal construction offers also a unique weight balance. The Gude Kappa series includes numerous of knives. From a peeling knife with a blade length of 2.5 inch to a salmon knife with a blade length of 12.5 inch, this knife series offers the appropriate knife for every purpose.
Although all knives of the Kappa series are dishwasher safe due to their solid metal, we recommend manual cleaning. The salts of the dishwasher detergents damage the blade in long term. Further the blade can get into contact with other dishes or cutlery.
