To ensure that you enjoy your sharp knife for as long as possible, it requires regular maintenance and care. And this also or especially applies to knives with high-quality blade steels, such as the ZDP-189 or the YXR-7. A suitable cutting surface, we recommend cutting boards made of Hinoki, is just as important as a suitable method for resharpening your ROCKSTEAD knife, which is available to you here with the 作 zukuri sharpening system Z.2.1.
