I just bought a Henckel Granton slicer (with the funny scallops along the sides).

I readon the Henckel web site that the knife musst be sharpened by a professional. I'd kind of assumed that when I bought it, but the question remained in my mind: can I use a steel to dress the edge in the normal fashion? :confused:

Hi Dave, the scallops on the knife should not deter you from dressing the edge with a steel. As a matter of fact, you should steel it more often because of the finer edge on your slicer than on say a chef knife. I sharpen my knives and would never think of giving them to some one else to sharpen. You should learn the art of sharpening knives, it's simple once you learn how.

I've sharpened my own knives for years, but was taken somewhat aback by the "sharpen professionally" warning. sort of like an apron that says "Dryclean Only".
