Although steels often are touted as sharpening tools, few actually sharpen knife blades, but they do perform the vital task of realigning, or resetting, edges, which bend when contacting a cutting surface or other hard object. Because this tool's rod contains microcrystalline diamonds bonded with nickel to an oval steel shaft it's hard enough to somewhat sharpen a blade. Using this steel won't replace a professional sharpening job, which proceeds from coarse grinding to ever-finer grinding at tightly controlled angles. However, it will lengthen intervals between sharpenings better than a steel without diamonds because it accomplishes the final task of a professional sharpening, which is polishing the edge with its 600-grit mesh to a fine point.
The rule is that a steel should be at least as long as the knife blade being drawn across it and this steel's 12-inch rod is short for most household knives. Lightweight and durable, the tool has a rugged plastic handle with a hanging hole, can be used for serrated knives as well as straight-edge blades, and also is useful for filing glass, crystal, and china. --Fred Brack
