    Despite its name, a sharpening steel doesn't actually sharpen, unless it's a "diamond" steel, but it does perform the vital task of realigning a knife's edge, which can bend through contact with a cutting surface or other hard object. This steel, a tapered rod of hard steel alloy, works as well as any, if not better, since its oval shape exposes more surface to the blade. It features a finger guard and a hanging ring on its handle, and its grooved, black synthetic handle provides a fist-firm grip. Using the steel often--ideally, every time you haul out a knife--prevents a blade from becoming dull and prolongs the intervals between professional sharpenings. Since the rule of thumb is that a steel should be at least as long as the knife blade being drawn across it, this steel's length is sufficient for most household knives. --Fred Brack
    • For most home chefs the sharpening steel will realign the edge and remove any niche or burr. An oval rod provides more surface contact with the edge to achieve same results as traditional rod but with fewer strokes. UPC Code
