The Nesmuk sharpening stick is the right tool for quickly and effectively sharpening blunt knives. Depending on the quality of the steel, every knife will become blunt at some time, so it has to be sharpened. The sharpness of Nesmuk knives can be maintained for a very long time with the help of the Nesmuk strop. However, even the most resistant blades can become so dull due to hard contacts, lateral sliding over cutting pads or excessively long care intervals that you have to remove a little more material from the cutting edge in order to get the blade sharp again. Nesmuk developed the Nesmuk sharpening stick precisely for this purpose. In most cases, conventional sharpening sticks have relatively coarse grinding wheels that roughen the surface of the cutting edge too much during sharpening.
The smoked oak handle has a functional octagonal shape that prevents the sharpening stick from moving. In addition, the eight sides form a contact surface for the back of the blade of the Nesmuk chef's knives in order to set the exact sharpening angle of 16°.With an effective length of 1.5 inch, the sharpening stick is easily suitable for large knives and is therefore also a useful tool in professional kitchens.
