Musat is the best tool for dressing a knife before use. It is designed to eliminate jamming and correct various other defects on the cutting edge, which quickly and effectively restores the original sharpness of the knife blade. This musat has a very hard smooth surface made of alumino-ceramic with Fine abrasive ability - about 800 grit (according to FEPA F). This allows not only to straighten the knife, but also to sharpen it a little, carefully removing a small amount of metal from the knife during dressing.
In order for the use of the musat to be comfortable, the length of its rod must be comparable to the length of the blade that is being processed on it. This musat has a working rod length of 27 cm, which allows it to be used with almost any kitchen knife. Comfortable oak handle treated with ARKANSA’S OIL special impregnation for premium class wood based on olive oil, equipped with a ring for easy storage of musat. The total length of the musat is about 410mm.
This musat perfectly combines high quality and affordable price.
What is musat, what is it for and how to use it?
Musat is a tool for dressing knives, and the key word here is editing, not sharpening, as some people think!
The use of musat will be justified only on those knives in which the cutting edge is not subject to chipping, that is, these are knives with an average blade hardness. If we switch to the language of numbers, then it is advisable to use musat if the hardness of the blade is from 50 HRC to 60 HRC. If the hardness is below 50 HRC, then the musat will start to cut the metal from the cutting edge too much, and not bend and straighten it, and thereby kill the cutting edge. If the blade hardness is more than 60 HRC, usually the cutting edge of such a knife will chip when dull. And even if in some places it is a little flattened, crumpled, then when you try to straighten it with musat, it will simply break off, and if the hardness of the musat is not sufficient, then it will slide at all without leaving any marks on the cutting edge. Therefore, the use of musat in such cases is simply not logical and useless. Now let's look at what happens when the knife becomes dull (if the knife is not made of too hard steel).
When blunted, the cutting edge changes its geometry, that is, it can bend to the left or right, as well as crumple, as if flattened. Next, you need to understand what the musat does when guiding it along the cutting edge. He clings to the jams and arches the edge, thereby restoring its geometry. Also, if the musat is made of fairly hard steel (compared to the hardness of the blade), then it can remove the metal a little, thereby undermining the edge a little.
Therefore, when working with musat, you do not need to press hard on the knife. It is enough to move with confident movements while maintaining the angle of sharpening the knife. And yet, you need to use musat after a short work with a knife, for example, after cooking. There is no need to wait for the cutting edge to shine and the knife to become very dull, in such cases a little sharpening or dressing on the stone will be required.
