Since I often see these tools reviewed with references made to "sharpening" a knife, it is worth noting that (name not withstanding) they do not sharpen. (Forgive me if you know all of this). If you took a knife which was actually dull, and spent the day using this tool on it, you would never get it sharp. What this tool does do, and well, is repair the damage that ordinary use does to your already sharpened edge. If you look at a freshly sharpened edge under adequate magnification, (try a BelOMO 10x Triplet Loupe Folding Magnifier ) you will see a (more on less) regular edge. Prepare a meal with that knife, and look at it again, and you will see all sorts of small insults to the edge. These flaws can dramatically reduce the performance of a knife which is still actually quite sharp. This tool performs the task of smoothing out those little insults, and allowing you to get the full benefit of the sharp edge which is already present. The steel performs the same task as the leather strop Fromm Razor Strop 2 1/2" X 23" W/HDL Russia which used to hang on the arm of your barber's chair, and in fact I have a leather barber's strop I have used for the task.

While this is a very affordable and useful steel, I would point out that it is only suitable for short knives. Your steel should always be a bit longer than the knife you are polishing with it, and so, while this steel is fine for a boning or paring knife, it is unsuitable for a slicing knife or a large chef's knife.

I bought this along with some Forschner knives. So far, those knives have not needed sharpening. However, I pulled some old knives out of the drawer and this quickly and effortlessly improved the edge. The only drawback is that it does not include written instructions. I had to search around online to figure out exactly how to use it. Otherwise, I would have given it 5 stars.

The description of the product and the title is confusing due to conflicting descriptions. It is not a Black Fibrox handle as indicated. Even though the title says plastic, product description says Fibrox and since most of Victorinox's knives comes with a Fibrox handle one would assume the sharpening steel's handle as well. Unfortunately it's cheap light weight plastic, hence the 4 star. I can spend less and get a cheap plastic handle with the same quality steel from other companies.

Forschner/Victorinox has been a standard in the culinary buisness for years, their products are built for economy and hard use. This product is for those who intend to really work their knives often.

It just works! amazing how quick it can put a sharp edge back on a knife. I have to remember to use it more often, like as soon as the knife feels slower than usual, because it makes such an immediate difference.

I'm not super picky about sharpening steels. I still have to sharpen my blade every few months, but, during the interim periods, this steel quickly aligns the edges of my victorinox knives and restores the bite. I would recommend it.

Works well for sharpening knives- haven't tried it yet on meat-grinders, screws, drywall or vampires.

If you want to sharpen knives longer than 9 inches, its better to get a longer sharpening steel. This one is the perfect companion to the Fibrox 9" chef's knife- which is also very much worth having!

Good stuff, well made, etc.
