Which sharpening steel for which series?

Multiple factors are relevant when it comes to answering this question correctly. The right sharpening steel absolutely must have a greater hardness than the knife being sharpened. In addition, sharpening habits also need to be observed. The more frequently you re-sharpen, the finer the sharpening steel should be. It then removes very little material from the cutting edge of the knife and mainly straightens the rolled cutting edge again.

The length of the sharpening steel depends on the length of the knife blade. The sharpening steel should be able to sharpen the entire cutting edge of the knife in one cut if possible. For this purpose it should be as long as the longest knife blade used.

F. DICK knives and sharpening steels are perfectly matched to one another.
