Ultra-Fine Steeling with the with the Dickoron Sapphire Cut
The Dickoron Sapphire Cut is a truly impressive steel. The special Sapphire Cut is extremely fine, smoother than even the F. Dick fine cut. The Sapphire Cut provides very low abrasion, serving to polish and straighten edges that are only slightly worn. This is a steel to be used lightly and often in maintenance of sharp knives for fine cutting.
Hone Any Knife
As a rule of thumb, a steel should be about as long as your longest knife. The 14" length of this steel will handle any knife in your collection.
Made To Be Used
Of course all F. Dick steels are designed to look good, but they are also intended to be practical tools for use by demanding chefs. The Dickoron is no exception. It features a large, comfortable handle. A metal guard looks sharp and keeps hands protected, and a sturdy metal ring in the handle provides a convenient means of storage.
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.
