7 Steels in 1 with the Dick Multicut
The Dick Multicut is designed to provide maximum efficiency. The flat oval shape provides maximum contact with the blade for fast sharpening. And the combined Standard and Fine cuts create a variable steel that can be very aggressive or extremely fine, depending on use. In fact, this one steel combines the effects of 7 different grades of F. Dick steels, from coarse through ultra fine.
It is the pressure used when steeling a knife that makes all the difference. Using heavy pressure will result in aggressive, heavy cuts. Light pressure will produce a fine polish. Start with heavy pressure and progress all the way through feather light to take a knife from dull to razor perfection on this one tool.
Made To Be Used
Of course all F. Dick steels are designed to be visually appealing, but they are also intended to be practical tools for use in demanding kitchens. The Multicut is no exception. It features a large, comfortable handle. An ample guard keeps hands protected. A sturdy ring in the handle provides a convenient means of storage. And the 11" length strikes a perfect balance between being long enough for almost any blade and short enough to not become unwieldy. These are steels made by professionals for professionals.
Highest Quality Sharpening Steels Since 1873
And F. Dick has been around even longer than that. Johann Friedrich Dick founded the company in 1778 to manufacture files. They began making sharpening steels in 1873, and have been producing the finest quality steels in Germany as a family owned business ever since. They are rightfully proud of their manufacturing process. The cuts on each steel are made using files also produced by F. Dick. The steels are hardened to 66HRc, surface coated for lasting corrosion protection, and handles are permanently mounted. Each steel is quality checked and stamped "F. DICK Made in Germany". You can be assured that you are getting time-tested quality when you purchase these steels.
