Honing Steels

In reference to honing your knives, the term commonly used, “folding back the burr” is basically when a knifes edge needs to be realigned because its misaligned or bent, which can happen after frequent use. A honing steel will “realign” a blades edge rather than removing metal from the edge. As for how often you should hone your knife, depends on use. A home cook should hone theirs approximately every three to four uses, if they’re using their knives regularly.
