I love this. I use it with my OXO Santoku knife and OXO slicer.

However to be accurate, this is made of steel, so actually it's a honing steel (which realigns the edge to improve sharpness). It is NOT a sharpening stone (which takes metal bits off the knife), and is not fragile (most sharpening stones are ceramic, and break if dropped).

That means if you have a dull knife, this product will not help - you need a sharpening stone to get the fine edge back.

However, if you use this honing steel frequently to KEEP your sharp edge in tact, it can help you MAINTAIN a sharp edge and help you to avoid needing a sharpening stone.

Great handle, simple and straight-forward directions.

I would recommend it.

It came quickly, 6 days with Amazon's free shipping. It came today and within 10 mins all my knifes were very sharp. I then gave my new OXO 6.5 knife (I ordered this with the hone) a few passes over my sharping stone then 10 light passes on the hone "WOW" I can shave with this now.

I like the handles/grips on all of my OXO products.

Very pleased. Well worth the price (14.95)

This sharpening steel is obviously a quality product. My first time to use one of these. A few strokes on the steel after sharpening on a stone and wow my knives are now truly razor sharp. Well worth the money. Comfortable handle. Overall length 14 inches, actual steel portion 9 1/4 inches. Length is adequate for my kitchen knives.

Sharping steels are not to be confused with sharping stones or knife sharpeners. Steels are used reset and maintain the microgrooves present on the cutting edge of every quality knife. They are used to touch up the blade between sharpenings from a stone or grinder, just had to clear that up. I have used other steels including the version by Chicago cutlery, this one works better. Probably the most important thing is that the steel must be at harder than blade, otherwise it won't properly work. Anyway, this tool works very well and will bring your knives back to life when used correctly. In fact, using this item before your cutlery fails the paper slice test (hold up a piece of paper and slice it, not tear it, with your knife) will keep them away from the stone. I gave this 4 out of 5 stars because it doesn't come with a protective sheath, I had to make one. It is well worth the price, especially if you care about maintaining your investment in quality cutlery. Don't forget to wipe and dry a steel after use to remove the metal fines.

This is the usual high quality of OXO however it's a bit smaller then I expected. The directions told me to put the tip on the counter and sharpen down and toward you, a different method the I had been using but it works quite nicely.

One of the best sharpening steels that I have used. It is small compared to some but it is convient to use and my wife has no problems holding and using it. Puts a fine edge on my knives.

I recently bought an Oxo Santoku knife, and was very impressed with the quality of both the knife itself, and the handle. It has quickly become my favorite knife for just about any kitchen chore one could ask of it. I have a hand held stone based sharpener that works very well on my knives. However good sharpeners come at a cost of your knives in the long run. Every time you use it, it shaves a tiny amount of steel off the knife. You can see the flakes of steel like powder being removed with each pass at times. It keeps the knife good and sharp, but also is wearing it out slowly but surely.

If you have never owned or used a steel sharpener, you should know that a steel is really the final step in any sharpening process. Its really nothing more than a steel rod with raised vertical lines that you drag the knife blade over to super fine the edge of any knife either after a real sharpener is done with it, or in the place of one if the knife is already pretty sharp. Its function is to merely use the slightly abrasive raised lines on the shaft to remove the fine microscopic burrs of steel that can remain present after a rough sharpening, and thus making any good knife a shaving worthy edge. It also has the benefit of making one feel like a real chef right in your own kitchen. Its rather fun to use, and carries a certain technique to it that can definitely make your effort more rewarding. This Oxo steel that I recently picked up locally is all the steel anyone in their home kitchen should ever need. Its very solid, has nicely designed raised lines on the business end, and also carries the signature Oxo handle like my knife that is the best I have ever felt in my hand.

This seemed to keep my new chinese chefs knife sharp and definitely help my ronco knifes after 3 years of use.
