A good honing steel is essential for keeping your Forged or Precision Knives sharp and at the ready! 

Even though we offer free sharpening via our “Sharp for Life program, a honing steel is less abrasive than a full sharpening, and can therefore be preformed more regularly.

Watch “How to Hone Your Knife” using the Lamson Honing Steel to learn more about the process.

  • Signature Craftsmanship. Meticulously formed in our Massachusetts facilities, each of our knives is finished to perfection using state-of-the-art technology coupled with hand finishing as well as proprietary polishing and sharpening processes. You will never find a better Forged knife anywhere.
  • Unmatched Blade Quality. Blades are precision-forged from the finest high-carbon Grade 4116 stainless steel from Solingen, Germany, using the traditional hot-drop method. Blades are then tempered and ice-hardened to a perfect 58 on the Rockwell Hardness Scale.. This results in a hard, wickedly sharp blade that retains an edge for longer and is both highly corrosion-resistant and elastic.
  • Gorgeous & Ergonomic Handles. Knives come with a choice of 5 sleek and sturdy handles of either Tough Acrylic (Fire Series & ICE Series), Striated Wood (SIERRA), Infused Walnut, or incredibly strong G-10 (Midnight Series).
  • Superior Handling & Cutting Performance. Full tang blades with triple-riveted handles ensure ideal balance and weight. Our combination machine and hand-sharpening processes ensures a consistently sharp and durable edge.
  • Lifetime Warranty. Every Lamson product comes with a Lifetime Warranty against manufacturing defects
  • Guaranteed reliability. Our Sharp for Life program supplies a lifetime of complimentary professional sharpening on every knife we make.

Lamson knives are not dishwasher safe. See Lamson Product Care for more information.

  1. Vito A. (verified owner)

    A requirement if you have a really nice set of cooking knives. It makes a big difference for maintaining a perfect cutting edge between sharpenings.

  2. Michael R. (verified owner)

    I bought my original sharpener many years ago during a trip to visit the factory store. I live in the UK and went online to buy a replacement. It came surprisingly quickly and even with the shipping costs was not expensive compared to prices for inferior quality goods over here. I am hugely satisfied.

  3. David F. (verified owner)

    I have purchased and used Lamson fine cutlery for quite some time and thought that since I respected the kitchen knives, why not also use use the Lamson Honing Steel to keep the cutting edge straight. I am very happy with the Steel and would recommend it to anyone for maintaining the cutting edge of their knives.

    This was a gift to my Husband. But the handle is different that the one pictured here. He loved it (being a person who loves antiques). He liked the wooden handle!! And it sharpened knives, especially the Lamson knive! He is really enjoying it! I would rate this a 10 out of 10.

  6. Thomas K. (verified owner)

    The steel works very well keeping my knives razor sharp.

  7. Michael H. (verified owner)

    I was unable to find a book of matches to judge the angle! howeverI used 90′, 1/2 90′ is 45′ ,1/2 45′ is 22 1/2′ which worked well. I found that on another site. Quite amazing how well it works, knives cut like a razor through news print, which someone else demonstrated. mYou flolks really make nice and quality products.

    Though I do not have a full range of Lamson knives, I did make the mistake of replacing by 15-year old sharpened with another…. received my new Lamson, and what a difference!

Had a great weekend with friends and family! We enjoyed some much-needed downtime and even whipped up a delicious cocktail using fresh-cut limes and mint. Can you guess what it was?

In 1869, newly elected U.S. president Ulysses S. Grant received a “cutting edge” gift from a small manufacturer in Shelburne Falls Massachusetts. Lamson presented our nation’s leader with a 62-piece dinner set. 
The handcrafted pieces bore handles of ivory, while others were pure mother-of-pearl. The 62 pieces remain in the nation’s capital on display at the Smithsonian Institution.
