ET ACRI. Yours, and sharp.
Your knives are your most important kitchen tool. Part of your everyday – from lavish dinner parties to grabbed breakfasts. With a little care, your knives can last a lifetime. That’s why it’s important to keep your knives within reach, well protected and beautifully displayed.
A knife is at its best when the edge is as sharp and straight as possible. With every use, the blade becomes unevenly worn. It is recommended to hone your knives after every use, something we think few home and even professional cooks do. ET ACRI knife blocks does this for you, on your countertop.
The honing function is adjustable to suit bevel angles from 10-30 degrees, aligning the edge back into a central position without removing material every time you insert and remove it from your knife block. The result is a knife that stays sharp for a long time with a decreased need of sharpening.
Honing vs. sharpening
Honing your knives does not remove material whilst sharpening can remove up to 3 mm of your knife’s edge. The built-in hard metal honing function adjusts to the knife’s edge to keep them sharp without removing material, hence, remarkably increasing the lifetime of your knives.
…and how to.
The honing parts are modular, thus, you adjust them to fit your knives. When your knife block is set up – every time you pull the knife out the edge slides trough the honing function giving it a slight straightening. The same occurs when you insert your knife in the block after using it wherefore your knifes edge is honed twice just by storing it.
