MakeEdge® is a modern version of the honing steel. MakeEdge® is easy to use correctly, the knife will automatically be centered between the 2 ceramic stones, when you pull it through. MakeEdge® is made in ceramic, which is non-magnetic and sharper than steel. MakeEdge® can hone both plain edged knives and rounded serrated knives.
You should hone your knife everytime you use it. Just pull the knife through 2-3 times without adding any pressure. You should only pull your knife towards yourself – not back and forth – see demonstration video here
When honing you unfold the edge of the knife and take away small roughness. You can hone as often as you like – the more frequently the better! MakeEdge® can prolong the lifetime of your knives with everyday honing, instead of occasional sharpening.
MakeEdge® has been tested by Catra in 2007 for it’s performance in comparison with leading market products. MakeEdge® came out with significant increase in cutting comparing to other products.
MakeEdge® has passed a durability test performed by the Danish Technological Institute. MakeEdge® has 5 years warranty on each side of the click-in mechanism, meaning 10 years warranty in total. Remember to rotate your MakeEdge® click-in mechanism if the ceramic parts get’s worn. This will increase the lifetime of your product. See how to in this video
The MakeEdge® innovation won the IF product design award in 2009.
