Zwilling TWIN 1731 Sharpening Steel, Tungsten Carbide

 

Length: 9" / 220 mm

 

Knives lose sharpness with use, which can make cutting more difficult. At the same time this can be dangerous, as you need to use more force to cut meat, fish or vegetables. Using a blunt knife is not recommended. However, there is no need to discard blunt knives, if you use this sharpening steel.

All good kitchens need a sharpening steel, like the TWIN® 1731 model, as it restores sharpness to blunt knives in seconds. 23cm in length, the sharpening steel is also suitable for use with large knives, like chef's knives or slicing knives. The sharpening steel is simple to use: simply draw the sharpening steel several times along the cutting edge of the knife and then immediately enjoy the ultra-sharp results.

This model also has a tungsten carbide sheath to provide for easy and quick sharpening. This material is a little rougher and can be compared to fine sandpaper. It grinds the blade and restores the knife's cutting properties. The sharpening steel per se is also extremely durable. This sharpening utensil from ZWILLING is the perfect choice for anyone who wishes to enjoy sharp knives when cooking.

  • Tungsten carbide is a hard metal with ceramic constituents. It can be used to sharpen all metallic knives without damaging them, thanks to its considerable hardness and fine graining.
  • Tungsten carbide straightens the blade as well as gently sharpening it.
  • Engraved ZWILLING logo
  • Ergonomic handle made from untreated, oiled ebony: For fatigue-free and safe working.
  • Hand wash only

How to sharpen knives correctly:

  • Place the knife blade against the tip of the sharpening steel at an angle of approximately 20 degrees.
  • Pull the knife down and across the steel, describing a slight arc.
  • Repeat this action on the back of the steel to sharpen the other side of the blade.
  • Repeat steps 2 and 3 five to ten times, alternating the left and right side of the blade.

It is very important to maintain the angle of 20 degrees and to run the full length of the cutting edge along the steel from the hilt to the tip of the knife. The speed of the movement is immaterial.

The history of the ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS brand

 

A modern company with a long tradition, milestones at a glance

The history of the ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS brand starts on June 13, 1731 (under the Gemini star sign). It was on that day that knife-maker Peter Henckels from Solingen registered the "Twin" symbol as his trademark with the Cutlers´ Guild of Solingen. This symbol which is now well-known globally is thus one of the oldest trademarks in the world. Today’s name ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS was given to the Company by a descendant of Peter Henckels, Johann Abraham Henckels.

Today products by ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS are recognised globally as the symbol for the highest possible quality and function.

ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS is a modern company which traditionally has always used innovative technology to manufacture products and services of the highest quality. Its leading principle: our customers´ satisfaction is our success – everybody is a customer. ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS has consistently set out to supply its customers with the best possible products and services. Based on this commitment Peter Henckels established his company 280 years ago. Today we still consider ourselves bound by the same commitment!
