What's difference between Honing and sharpening?

Honing is basically maintaining an already sharp edge. When you hone, you polish the rough surface of the knife's edge which reduces friction and allows the knife to cut into material better.

Sharpening is actually removing material from a knife blade's edge. This is usually accomplished by grinding the edge of a knife against a sharpening stone or apparatus.

When a honing steel no longer returns a knife's edge to sharpness, you can try a sharpening steel, such as a ceramic steel or a diamond-coated steel, which removes some metal from the blade, thereby sharpening it.
