The Chef’sChoice® SteelPro® is the first commercial non-abrasive steeling device that features precision angle guides and consistently provides incredibly sharp knives for those who prefer a perfectly steeled edge.

Historical Steeling:  For hundreds of years, steeling has been practiced using a metal rod (known as a steel) to straighten and recondition knife edges. The historical process is extremely difficult to master and can be dangerous. It requires much skill and practice to avoid doing more damage to the edge than good. With traditional steeling, the straightened knife edge is still unpredictable after the process and can quickly fail again.

Although some cooks prefer the steeled edge on their cutlery because of its performance on fibrous foods, they have found it to be an elusive edge to obtain consistently because of the skill and effort required with traditional steels. Consequently, the use of conventional manual steels has been limited.

21st Century Steeling:  Chef’sChoice® perfected the steeling process with the Commercial SteelPro® Model 475 that delivers an edge that is far superior to the conventional manually steeled edges. The SteelPro® features super-hardened miniature steels that use a non-abrasive process to develop uniform ultra-sharp microscopic serrations along the entire edge of the blade.

In comparison to conventional steels, it’s a breeze to use because of its built-in precise angle guides. All it takes is a few strokes for a razor sharp edge.

Perfecting the Process:  Steeling consistently at approximately 23 degrees, the Chef’sChoice® SteelPro® does not round-off the knife-edge, as conventional steels do; rather it maintains the original edge geometry and sharpness and creates uniform microscopic serrations that work together for a better cutting edge.

Because the “angle-of-attack” on the knife-edge is always in the same direction, steeling with the SteelPro® creates a uniform micro-structure that cuts better and more evenly by distributing the cutting load, hence, the edge lasts longer. As a result of the precise angle control of the Chef’sChoice® SteelPro® Model 475, the edge needs steeling and/or re-sharpening  less often, thereby extending the life of the knife.

The “angle-of-attack” for conventional manual unguided steels varies along the length of the edge and can change during every stroke of the knife, resulting in a non-uniform edge formation where portions of the edge fail prematurely.

The SteelPro® M475 removes less metal than conventional manual steeling. It is safe on all quality cutlery, and can

last a lifetime. The steeling components can be rotated into different positions to expose fresh steeling surfaces as needed.

Optimize the Steeling Process:   Since the steel is a maintence took and not a sharpener, we recommend that the knife edge be sharpened first at an angle slightly less than the total steeling angle of the Chef’sChoice® SteelPro®. The knife edge should be sharpened at 20 degrees or less before steeling and whenever the steeling process appears to be producing less than optimum results. Any professional sharpener can be used for this purpose. See our complete selection of quality knife sharpeners.  Engineered and assembled in the U.S.
