A burred blade makes cutting more difficult!! Honing your blade removes the burr. If you don’t hone your blade, your blade can FAIL or have poor cutting performance. Blades are NOT covered by warranty. With this simple maintenance step, you can DOUBLE your blade life!
Many people confuse honing with sharpening, but there is a distinct difference. When you sharpen a blade, you’re actively removing material, creating a brand new razor-sharp beveled edge. Honing instead pushes the sharpened edge into position.
